That's not true. Like I said, when my key slipped out even a fraction, the radio (stock) power went off

I have a 2001 Jeep Wrangler and the key slips out just like you are saying, it's it the magnet that is soposed to hold on to the key in the cylinder it wears down after awhile and doesn't work any more and that is norma. The problem he is having has to do with the wires behind the lock cylinder because he had to replace his ignition actuator switch, it is weird but you are right the key has nothing to do with the Power to the Radio.

So I finally had time to get back to my non-working jeep radio. I checked the voltage at fuse #14 (radio fuse) and have 12v. I also replaced the ignition switch. Neither has produced the results I want, a working radio!!

Does the actuator pin have any adjustment that may be causing the problem?

Any help would be great. Driving w no radio stinks!!

Wattapunk check for 12v at fuse#15 at the fuse block when key is in ACC/OFF/ON positions. Should have 12v when key is in ACC/ON.

The wipers worked fine with the key in the "on" position?? Still possibly a bad ignition switch?

I'll check the wipers this evening. Thanks!

Radio Problems!!

So I replaced my actuator pin in my ignition 2 weeks ago. Since doing so, now the radio does not work. It works fine in the aux position (key turn back towards driver) but will not come on with the ignition in the start or run position.

I've changed out the radio fuse, no luck. I did not mess with any wiring during my ignition work. Any thoughts?
