2001 Trooper radio light bulbs

Postby 1Trooper » Tue Feb 21, 2017 6:55 pm

Has anyone replaced the light bulbs in the original radio that came with the Trooper? Are they soldered type bulbs or what type? Mine is a 2001 year,

Thanks

They're smds (surface mount diodes). You can do it, but you have to be pretty precise with a soldering iron and try not to burn the board. Once you remove the volume knob, the front face is held on by push tabs all around face. The face electrical connector is a slip type connections so as long as you pull it off straight you shouldn't have a problem.

I'd suggest opening the face and look at it and then decide if you want to attempt it.

In my '01 Rodeo, all of the radio lights were no longer working. I decided it was easier to just replace the radio. I picked up a Radio/CD combo from my local pick-a-part for $10.

Thanks for the responses. I'll probably go the used radio route as well.
