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?

It's not the radio end, it's somewhere in the ignition switch side. The radio ignition power wire(pink) is only getting +12v in the ACC position but no 12v when the key is in the start/on postion. You may have a bad ignition switch. Does your wipers work in the key on position?

I'll check the wipers this evening. Thanks!

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

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.

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!!

I replaced the same part, make sure you did not pinch a wire near the Cylinder, also just check your Radio Fuse (Who knows right...), i would take the pin out and reinstall if you need to it is a 10-20 min project so it is worth it. Just a suggestion :0

I don't know the ignition switch circuitry but the key actually being in affects the stock radio. My key was loose and would come out slightly when driving and radio power would go out. Everything else worked. Push the key back in all the way back in and the radio would come back on. (someone on jeepforum had the exact same issue) Interesting enough, I got an aftermarket radio and the key being in does not affect radio power.

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.

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

Was this ever resolved? I have the same identical situation. What was the final fix?
