I know this board doesn't see the traffic it once did. But I've found it to be a valuable resource.

Anyway, I'm the proud new owner of a 2005 Aztek. Bought it for $3500 with just under 100k miles. The former owners took immaculate care of this vehicle. Every service record documented, no collisions, and only one small dent in the rear passenger door (might be a door ding).

I have the tent still in the box and the pull out storage thing doesn't look too have been ever used. The interior is in awesome shape also, the only issue I've found inside is that the stock radio has a light burned out...

Welcome.

Great looking car. Congratulations on the find. I am also fairly new, having bought my 2005 Rally last September. It was a repo, so not as primo as yours, but really not too bad.

Agreed, though not a busy forum any more, it has a wealth of information that you can only get from other's experiences.

Enjoy!!

2003 Gold FWD Aztek - aka "The Warthog"

Welcome Jetshack!

Thanks for the pictures...  looks like you found a good one.

Radio lights - I had to replace those on mine.   The bulbs lay flat to the circuit board (the leads have to make a 90 degree bend so that the bulbs can lay flat).  The bulbs are soldered to the circuit board and if I remember correctly, they had a colored sleeve that I transferred over to the new bulbs.  If one bulb has died chances are the other 2 are on their way out too and I'd recommend changing all three.

I just searched ebay and found this seller has bulbs that should work.  You want to avoid bulbs with short leads that stick straight up from the board.

Here's another one...

Each bulb lights up (back lights) about 1/3 of the display.

Hope this helps!
