Best Answer

These radios are notorious for the displays going blank. I have a 1999 Villager Estate that had the same problem. The cause is usaully a set of large resistors on a circuit board inside the radio. The resistors get so hot that the solder connecting them to the circuit board actually melts and they become disconnected. The repair involves opening the radio, finding and resoldering the large resistors. They can be identified by the heat discoloration that they cause on the circuit board. This isn't too difficult, but if you have no experience using a soldering iron, then you may want to take the radio to a friend with a bit of soldering experience.
