Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The display light on the clock and radio of my 2005 SportsTrac has stopped functioning.  I can't tell the time or set any radio stations.   Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I've heard everything from having to replace the entire unit to replacing a fuse.

At night when you turn on the marker light do you get a glow in the display?

There should be a small wheel that you can turn with your thumb on the left of the steering wheel, that will turn your interior lights on/off and also dim or completely turn off your dash and radio lights. Try turning this wheel, this might be your problem.

Hello, this is Brent at 1 Factory Radio. The best solution for display lights going out in Ford Explorers is to get a new DC to DC Converter, because this part was usually responsible for display malfunctions due to its own inherent design flaws. We offer our own brand of DC to DC Converter for Ford Explorers and many other Ford vehicles from the late 90's to the early 2000's. Pioneer no longer makes these parts, but ours are 40% less expensive than the ones that Pioneer was selling. These are high-quality, newly manufactured pieces which have been specifically engineered to correct the design flaws which caused the originals to malfunction prematurely, and they come with a full-color instruction manual for easy installation. You can purchase them from our eBay site, http://stores.ebay.com/1factoryradio, and also on the 1 Factory Radio website, www.1factoryradio.com.
