If you are talking about the back-light in the stereo, you can replace it, but this is not very effective as that you have to remove the unit and take it apart, your best bet is to buy an after market stereo and install it yourself (you still have to remove the old unit plus install the new one but w/o the hassle of taking anything electronic in nature apart). You can get nice after markets for under 100 and the wire harness, and dash kits usual run around $20 combined. Installation usually takes an hour plus time for wiring and kit setup. Time and money wise to install an after market vs. repairing the stock stereo it is easier to just replace the unit. To have the original repaired costs an average of $150-$350 depending on the repair and a replacement itself usually runs around $200 from a junkyard (more from the dealer itself). Hope this helped
