Yeah, you really need to pull that radio and see how "mickey mouse" it was connected. Be careful when you pull the radio though, because the wires behind it, are normally short in length. It sounds like the antenna isn't connected either. This is likely why you aren't getting any radio reception. I would also check for non-insulated wires. Since, it sounds like a short. Maybe the person who installed it used electrical tape, just twisted the wires together, and the electrical tape has come off, and the wires are loose, causing an intermittent short. I would use the clear crimp connectors, instead of butt connectors too. All of these improper scenarios could cause a short. Or, maybe the installer tapped into the ground strap, but didn't secure the strap to the chassis, after removing the OEM radio. This happened to me. Or, maybe the ground is loose at the chassis, causing intermittent voltages to the ignition system.

RUBI 4 MY MRS Try your wipers & see if they cut the radio off like the signals do. The wipers, signals & radio all get power to the fuse block from the same wire from the ignition switch.

If jiggling the keys doesn't help, I'd pull the radio and make sure it is all wired correctly. Some owners cut off the OEM radio plug/plugs and then wire the new radio in incorrectly. If yours doesn't have the OEM plug you should look for a list of what color wires are for speakers and power. If it's a 2000, I can send you one. If you have the OEM plug, with an aftermarket harness adapter, check the wiring between the two.

ChasUGC Is it a stock or aftermarket radio?

I would check the radio ground. If giggling the ignition switch brings it back, it could be a faulty ignition switch too.

My radio turns off whenever I turn my turn signal on. Any ideas on where to start with this problem?
