Hi everyone - I'm new to the forms and am hoping someone can help me with this problem. I replaced the stock head unit about 3-4 years ago - no problem. By far one of the easiest installs I've ever done.
Within the last 4 months, the radio has been nothign but problems. When driving (or not driving), the audio will break in and out, much like losing antenna signal when going through a tunnel, however, it's not losing antenna signal becasue it does it when playing CDs as well.
When you go over bumps sometimes the radio signal will go in and out (not the power, just the audio). But it doesn't have to be triggered by a bump.
Seems the only solution is brute force on the dash above the stereo - leading me to believe there was a bad connection or faulty ground. I then took the stereo completely out and re-installed it, taping all connections securely with electrical tape. While the audio cutting in and out has improved (somewhat), it still happens.
Does anyone have suggestions? My next step will be to get all new wiring and try a new head unit. Maybe it's an internal issue with the stereo itself?
