Ok.. let'* back up here.

You have the wiring schematics for the radio right?
You have the above wiring for the car. (I can verify tonight if you'd like, from the FSM)

If the illumination isn't working. Are you seeing power on the illumination wire of the radio? Not before the connector...but after.. solid wire into radio, you'll want to test with multimeter.

Also.. double check that illumination doesn't simply dim the radio face. That is what I was trying to say before. Make sure dimming isn't transposed with illumination. They made it pretty confusing on my manual and I had to reverse the wiries.

the other thing is to make sure that the wiring harness that i gave you is in fact the same as what would have been original. I dont see why there would be a variance, but i suppose it is possible

Messed with it some more tonight...there is power on the orange illumination wire coming from the connector attached to the stock wiring, verified using a test light.

Tried it with the illumination wire disconnected, still no lights, I dont believe there is a setting on the radio to turn them on or off, ive looked through the manual many times.

I dont think this is a wiring harness issue either...there are 16 wires attached to the HU, 11 of them are accounted for by speakers, power, ground, and constant power..then there is the amp turn on and power antenna which both work as they should, once again verified using test light, the amp turn on has power when the unit is on, and the power antenna has power when the unit is on AM/FM. that leaves only 3 wires, the illumination wire and two brown wires, both of which i have tried to hook to illumination with no luck.

Im going to call tech support when I get a chance and see if they have any ideas, if not I think Im gonna just give up on it and say its broken.

Don't know if this helps b/c my list doesn't say anything about an Olds Intrigue, but I have a list that mentions an orange wire for both the illumintation and the dimmer, but then again it'* for a 14 wire plug, but I figured I'd post it anyway.
