The radio light does...

The radio light does not work. But the radio and CD player works. The speed gage started reading in kilometers (not miles) per hour.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

How do you check the fuse? How do you find the fuse? How do I start to do this?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?

2007 g6 grand am

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Am yourself? What have you tried so far?

Havent tried anything. im trying to get info on the internet. I am retired and on a fixed income so Id like to fix it myself if i can

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Those are the only two problems: radio light is not working and it is reading in kilometers

sorry for the delay............

Kilometers to MPH

UNITS: When UNITS appears on the display, press the
enter button to move between METRIC (default in
Canada) or ENGLISH (default in United States). When
you have made your choice, press the MENU button
to record your selection.
If you choose English, all information will be displayed
in English units.
If you choose metric, all information will be displayed in
metric units.
The unit measurement will also change the trip
odometer, temperature, and average fuel economy displays.

.

Radio Display:
This is not like the old Radios that had Light Bulbs that could be changed
You have to change the LED & Circuit Board with New Updated one
Problem is, is locating a GM Radio Repair Shop that will sell you one.
I can supply you with a Repair Shop that can Exchange or Repair, if you need that

.

Let me know if you need further

sorry.....no I cannot give specific instructions on how to replace the Circuit Board & LED, unless I have the Unit in front of me

There is NO YouTube Videos that I am aware of
That is why I referred you to the people that repair / exchange GM Radios, that I have used for over 20 years
