The service agent at my dealership says that the only way to deal with blacked out lighting on the display for the radio in my 2002 Sunfire is to replace the whole unit. That might cost as much as $700, he says, which I cannot justify for a 7-year old vehicle. Are there any other, cheaper options? It's not a safety issue; more like a nuisance matter. Thanks!

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Lynn, You can phone around to car stereo shops and retrieve price quote that can be considerably cheaper than a stock manufacturer replacement. AJ Pierce

Suzanne Grego, Technician at City of Philadelphia Fleet Management Lynn, If the problem is in the radio itself, you can always purchase an aftermarket radio and have it installed. Call or go on line to find prices of a radio that will fit your vehicle. The installation should not be too expensive. Suzanne
