I am starting to trouble shoot my radio. So far I have made sure I have power to it. It does not light up and no sound/static noise. What are some things to check? Thanks in advance Alex

make sure you have it pluged in right some how I had the plug in the wrong way and when I turned it around it worked, look at the assembly manual and make you have the right color wires going in the right place

Is it on the bench or in the car? Theres no ground connection in the car harness, only power. It grounds to the dash thru the support strap on the back of the radio.

It's in the car, got good power, and the support brace is hook up. I want to check the light bulb out and make sure it's good. I am going to run a new antenna cable to it. Not sure how to get to the speaker yet?

Good luck! You might want to fine another AM radio. They were plentiful and are probably cheaper than fixing yours. I put a new $100 am/fm CD in the glove box and leave the AM for show. If you replace the original you might look into getting a repo AM/FM. Ausleys Chevelle has the best price.
