I recently installed an alpine mp3/cd player in my 2002 Silverado
1500. Now the dash lights are inop. I'm not sure if the two are
related, but the timing is suspicious. I tried plugging the original
stereo back in, and checked all the fuses but none of that helped. I
also pulled the instrument cluster and checked the connections to make
sure I hadn't bumped anything loose. When I installed the stereo I
used a plug adapter and did not cut anything. I did connect the
Alpine's "illumination" wire to its Chevy counterpart. When I turn the
headlights on, you can see the digital odometer dim as it is supposed
to, but still no dash lights. Is there a way to reset the computer to
see if this is the problem? I was wondering if anyone has any ideas
before I take it to the dealer for warranty repair. I'd hate to get
blamed/charged for this...
Thanks in advance guys.
Oh Yeah, also my truck is non-Onstar, no power anything. Just a 6 cyl,
5-speed cheapie :)
