Stereo Question #2

8 posts in this topic

The radio went out on my stereo. The CD player works just fine so that makes me beleive it's either some sort of a fuse in the radio or antenna connection problem.

Does anyone have ideas on how to figure out the problem?

I will also add that I did pull it out and checked the antenna connection. I just don't know how to check if the problem is tha actual antenna on the truck.

If the CD player works than the fuses are fine. The radio has probably failed. Even with the antenna disconnected you should be able to pick up something.

What brand of unit is the deck? How old?

Jer is right. Are you hearing anything when the radio is selected?

what kind/brand of radio is it? could be a circuitboard problem when you press source its not switching between sources, but when you put a cd in, it automatically plays?

The unti is a Sony Xplode that is about 8 yrs old. Everyonce in awhile I'll switch it back over and I'll get a station for a bit. To shed some more light on the subject is that it won't pick up the "tuner" connector for my Ipod either. i can hold the transmitter up to the radio and it won't pick up...

Thanks for the ideas. I'm gussing another radio is coming soon.

I think you are guessing correctly!

Those things have a limited shelf life with all of the abuse they take.
