1983 Datsun 280ZX - Radio

Postby Mldr » Sun Aug 05, 2018 9:37 am

The display on the radio is not illuminated when the radio is on. Possibly the bulb? Oddly enough, sporadically it does work, but after turning the radio off and then immediately back on the light is off again. Before I make an attempt to pull the radio, could it possibly be a grounding issue elsewhere in the car? Might the bulb be easily accessible once the radio is pulled if I go that route? Any suggestions on resolving this issue will be appreciated. Thx.

Only real way to tell if it's a bulb is to pull and look at it. Check it with a meter to see if it does have power.
