Well I am just wondering if there is any way I can fix this issue I have had with my radio ever since I got the car.

I will start by saying this is some aftermarket Alpine unit. I don't know the model number sorry.

Well all the buttons illuminate, except for the display. If I shine a light on it the display is working correctly but there is just no illumination. Anything I can do to this this? I was thinking it could be a lose illumination wire in the harness but I figured the buttons wouldn't illuminate either if that was the case. I am stumped. Any ideas?

if you really wanted to you could tear open the faceplate and see if there is a broken solder connection. otherwise the model number should be on the faceplate, look it up on ebay and buy a new faceplate.

One of the wires in the deck is for illumination. Im not sure if that is for everything or just the display. You could pull it out and see if you have a dangaling wire. Or the backlight could have burned out. Rare but it can happen.
