Last night, I swapped the CD head unit from a 2003 in place of the cassette HU in my 2000 wagon. The installation went great - or so I thought. While the radio and temp controls all work fine, following the installation I have no lights in the fan, temp control and A/C dials. The lights are fine on both the radio and defroster light.

Any ideas? Blown fuse maybe??? If so, which one? Or maybe a loose connection on the HU??

Any help appreciated!!

In the dark,

Neal

Sounds like a lose wire, though possibly in the HU itself. Or they made a change between the years.

Sounds like grounding to me. Happened in my 1999 Nissan Quest, when they removed the HU for AC work (don't ask why.) the display on the radio blanked out.. never turned back on. $500 later we had to buy a new HU from Nissan. Blech. then 2 months later it got Totaled in a tornado. Just my lucky eh? :dunno:

Buy yeah turns out it was grounding, I would check it out, make sure non of the cables were crimped when you put the HU back in.

Let us know of any new developments :thumb:
