Hi all,

It seems that some of the lights on my console have disappeared after installing a deck last night or maybe they just went? The AC, defrost and other circular buttons are lit still but the knobs for the temp control and the air control are gone now for some reason.

What should I check first? Could it be a fuse?

Its probably just the bulb. In my car its just one big bulb.

you might as well check your fuses too, its probably the easiest thing to do.

It looks like you didn't connect the interior lighting wire to the deck. Pull the deck out, and look at all the wires that you didn't connect. Find one that has (+) when you turn on the interior lights. Your deck should have an appropriate lighting input where this wire has to be connected. If this wire is left unconnected, some of your interior lights won't come on since they are all part of the same circuit.

Actually, the deck was already in there from before and all was well. What I should have said is that I took the deck out to attach RCA's to it and then put the deck back in, but now some of the lights are not working.

Is it possible a connection came loose or something?

That's probably what happened.

Good news for me,

I opened the dash today and realized that it was only the bulb that was gone. WEnt to Crappy Tire, got a new one and all is well.

Thanks for all your help guys!

Yeah, when our cars get around 10 years old, bulbs start to go. Some can be a pain to change. :mad:
