    Do you have a cd or tape in the deck? Mine stay black until it sees a tape or cd, then it lights them up as an option of source input.

    Yes, they can 'burn out'. You have the Pioneer head unit, I assume. All my controls light up (CD / TAPE ), with headlights on, independent of the 'source'.

    That unit, IMO, is not worth repairing.
