Default Radio lights no longer display

2005 GT Convertable - 86,000 miles
The lights on my radio just came off and they are not coming back on.
(The radio/CD/Cassette still works... but no display)
at first they would go out for a few minutes and then the display would come back on. Now they are staying off..
Please help!
thanks!

First, check for a blown fuse or broken wire. I would guess you may have lost the panel lamp feed pin-3 or the fused continuous power feed pin-1.

Try moving the tilt steering wheel and see if that helps. There are connectors in the steering column that can get pulled....
Also try pushing in on the ignition key - sometimes the ignition switch goes bad.
