Alpine HU install gone wrong?

I just installed a 9803 into my car and that works great, but the light for the car's clock no longer works. Did I blow something? I'm guessing that the factory harness had something for the light on the clock, but the Alpine harness didn't have anything extra.

Thanks.

Eddie

You can easy replace it yourself. They sell the bulbs at radioshack for a 1.49. it come 2 in a pack # 7219 12 volts 60mA.

As for installing it. First remove the clock unit by placing a screw driver under the base of the clock and pry upwards. Then disconect the two wire harrnesses. Look on the back of the clock you will see a small black screw its on the side/corner. Turn it half a turn and it should come loose take it out then you will see the blub wired to it. If you notice that it makes it power conection by touching the plate on the base. now take some thing small like a fine screw driver or nail cliper and just pry the wires up and un ravel it from the base. Now reverse the order when installing the new blub but cut the extra slack off after you rerun the wires through the bulb base it makes it a lot easier. Then reinstall the blub holder back in to the base and lock the blub holder into the base. and replug the wire harnesses and reinstall the clock, and finaly set the time.
Search next time though. This must be the 4th thread on this in about a two week period .

But I am always happy to help .

If I pull the clock out again, is there a way I can test the little bulb to see if it's burnt out? I looked at it last night and I don't really want to unwrap the wire, plus the filament looked intact too.

Radio Shack didn't have the bulb either. I checked before I came home. Forkers...
