I have a 2002 SLE and the display light to the factory radio is working but it'* getting to the point where it'* getting hard to read during the day. I have done a search and have found that this is a common problewm with these head units. I found a link to a site during my search that sells replacement bulbs:
Delco Radio Replacement Bulbs
My question is, will this bulb fix my display problem? The pictured head units doesn't look like the one installed in my SLE. I originally was going to just replace my HU with an aftermarket one, when I was told that I would not be able to because my car has On Star and that there was no adapter available for the factory harness. I also was told that if I did change out the factory HU, I would have to run all new to wire for the aftermarket HU and spreakers and would lose my door chimes and other automatic features that came with the car. Is this true?
Sorry for the long winded post, but any help would be appreciated.
