Or realize that a blown bulb is NOT the problem. A bad display module is.
The clock and radio display on GM stereos are Vacuum Fluorescent Displays.
The bulbs on that site are for the knobs and control buttons only (and
are available MUCH cheaper from other sources).
The VFD however is pretty much a used item only. The good thing is that
many of the GM units are interchangeable. They used only a few different
ones and they are easy to find.
Which stereo is in it?
i called up this place
and spoke to someone who has fixed hundreds of these radios and he
insisted that it was the light which needed to be replaced.
unfortunately, he could not sell me a bulb but refered me back to
corvette radio.com and i have just ordered a bulb...
i will update you went the bulb arrives.
thanks for the suggestions and help.
