The radio lights in my wifes van don't work right. It seems that they come on and off whenever they want to after she turns on the headlights. Does anyone have any suggestions or know which wire in the harness is for illumination? I would like to test it.
I fit comes on and off on it's own schedule I'd say that the problem lies inside the radio and not in the harness. If there was a short in the harness you would also loose all the other dash lights, since they are on the same circuit.
I have the same problem with my '03. I learned this week that the problem is in the circuit board of the radio. The dealer said the only fix is a new radio (they quoated $1,000- and were embarrassed by it.) I told them I could get a junk yard radio much cheaper or go to Best Buy for $100 (they agreed this is probably best).
