I had the same problem! It turns out there isn't really a "leak" as you think of it. The taillight housing was designed very poorly. There are 4 places where water sits on top of the gaskets on the left and right side. i replaced my gaskets thinking that would solve the problem. BUT, the new ones were saturated and leaking through just like the old ones! what i did, was drill holes in the bottom of each of these areas, and put a tube through from top to bottom. the water now has a place to drain out, it will not sit on top and eventually come through the gasket!

How can you fix your lights on your radio display on a 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo none of them work and it is not the fuse?

Not enough info... If the lights are dim, there is an illumination wire that dims the lights when the headlights come on at night... could be a bad switch. If your lights are totally gone... so is your radio. It is a sealed unit not meant to be serviced. Even if you could find someone to repair it, by the time you were done, it would be cheaper to buy an aftermarket or an original factory Delco from eBay.
