Default The stereo display is half lite

took the car to a installer they took out the radio and added some stuff so they could hook up a couple of amps for subs n stuff.

anyway after they put it back in only half of the display is lite

they have more work to do next week and they said they'll fix it then......why or how did this happen

What is the year and trim line of your car? What kind of radio is it?

Sounds like display bulbs may be burned out or loose. Need to open up the radio to check/replace them.

I had two of them in my climate control burn out after I took the dashboard apart once.

On my radio, you have to take it apart after you remove it from the car. Probably the same with yours.
