Q: Problem with clock and radio CD player display

asked by on

My car's clock and radio CD player light is not displaying on screen.

There are a wide variety of reasons as to why interior electronics may fail, ranging from relatively minor fixes to hard to trace wiring issues. I would recommend having your car’s clock and radio CD player inspected by a knowledgable technician, such as one from YourMechanic, to make sure none of the fuses are blown, and that the wiring is in acceptable condition.
