The LCD screen on my '96

Postby Uncle Fester » Mon Aug 04, 2014 10:07 pm



okay, from day one the LCD screen has only partially worked. The clock works fine (with minor exception of "wet" days), the tire pressure works right, BUT the dang radio station has NEVER worked once sense I bought it. Do you think I need to replace the LCD or is there a possible loose connection, or ? ? ? ?

It may be a loose connection. I never saw that condition before..but that is a good guess. Replacing the LCD is VERY expensive IF you can find one!

I sent this same question to Sierra Electronics last night, after posting here, they agree with you and say it would more than likely be the connector at the radio and to make sure it has tight, solid, connection, so I will check that soon and report back.
