JA: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?
Customer: On the cue
JA: Are you fixing your ATS-V yourself? What have you tried so far?

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you havent checked to make sure all fuses are good in all fuse panels this needs done.If one or more fuses are blown this can cause this type of fault here with the affected fuse needing replaced.If this was done or is done and all fuses are found to be o.k. then you may have a fault internally with the radio assembly itself.I have seen some of these fail before in the past needing replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
