Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Radio works intermittently

My radio appears to be working, everything except audio output. What I mean is that the controls seem to be working, it appears to tune, seek, volume, treble, and bass controls indicate they are working, the bands change, the CD changes disks, changes tracks, indicates CD is playing, but no audio. Except that once in a while, the audio come on for one or two seconds, and then off again. I thought it might be a loose wire, so I removed the radio (not the cables) and wriggled the cables for several minutes with no effect. Re-installed and still nothing. Another anomaly is that the radio on/off switch appears to be reversed, off when pushed in and on when out.

Is there an external amp that could have a problem or is this radio self contained?

Any suggestions.

When it was working, I loved it.

The amp is in the radio and may have some broken solder connections.

    You would need to take the radio out of the car and open it up. Then, if you are good with a soldering iron, you could re-flow all the questionable solder joints. If you do not have a soldering iron, or are not good with one, you should just take it to a service center for repair. Since it does work at certain times, the amp is good, it just has some bad connections. The amp IC it always located on a heat sink inside the radio. That would be the first place to look. You may even have 2 amp IC's in the radio. One for rear and one for front speakers. Any solder joint that has a ring on it or looks cracked, or is not a shiny silver color are all suspect.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Navigation Issue The


Look on ebay for an REC Joystick replacement. In the mean time you can hold down the middle button on the right side of the back of the steering wheel, where you can control the radio features. When you hold this button down, a little red wheel symbol appears on the navigation screen which means you can control the navigation system from the steering wheel controls. This works for simple tasks until you get the replacement joystick. They are about $30 and take about an hour to install.

Radio comes but no sound. Radio seems to be working and the connections are ok. Fuses are ok.


if you dont get even a pop or crack when turned on at first, check the radios memory on the read-out on the radio face and see if its on mute setting, and if this is not the case, there are 2 fuses,one controls memory power and the other controls audio output power, check both as if one fuse is out the other cant make the radio operate properly

No sound on radio


The actual problem may be with the radio itself in the preamp circuit or the cabling from the radio to the amp. Since you are getting output from the Sub, that means the amp has power and so does the radio. However, the standard audio line is usually seperate since the selection of speakers is controlled from the radio itself and the sub is constant except for volume

2003 chrysler mini van the radio has power on all except no audio


take the radio out and make sure there are no wires disconected. if not, its your audio output terminals that are bad. bad thing about that is you'd have to take it to get it fixed and it would be more than just buying a new one. samething happend to me about 5yrs ago. to test to make sure that is the problem, once you take the radio out hook the speaker wire from the radio to and old speaker to see if it works(they can do this test at any car audio shop) if not id just replace it. pretty easy to do. good luck to ya
