Auto Q&A with Tom Torbjornsen: Time for a radio upgrade

Dear Tom,
How do I replace the bulbs that provide illumination behind the radio selector buttons on my ’99 Chevy Tahoe?
David from Lancaster, N.Y.

Sorry, you cannot replace those bulbs. They are LEDs built into the radio set, so you will have to replace the radio. This is a great excuse to buy a better radio for your truck. Take advantage of it!
