On AM radio, there is often a sound, like a hammer hitting a 55 gal. drum interrupting the program. Does not do it on portable radio carried in the car.


all stations AM?

is the engine running?

for get the portable, some have vastly better a/m radios than any car has. in fact many cars radios a/m OR of horrid quality.

i can tell you why but its boring. (AGC, read up on that)

did you try the radio in car, parked say across town.?

did you try all stations

are you like 1 block away from an AM radio station, overloading yours.

AM radios are basically noise making radios., that is why FM was invented to stop that noise, (i cant hear it so.........?????)

are you listening to far away stations, this is normal

in fact you might hear 2 stations on same channel (freq)

and they will beat against each other.

on case of is in S.Calif where your station is clobbered by high power mexican stations 50,000 watts. strong.

and worse a night, does it get better in the day?



here is my advice, many AM stations have a rebroadcast on FM.

go there and listen. (use SAT radio?)

AM radio is subject to vast sources of noise.

ignition noise., high voltage power transmission line noise.

machinery noises, (electric)

or even illegal transmitters in your hood.



many new cars the AM radio is junk, they use this very cheap

chip inside that does this very poorly, but allows them to say

it has AM. ( for $1 cost)

the FM side is 10x better, or more. move up to FM like we all did back in 1967. (i used to build and sell converters back then)





answering for , all other modes work perfect, but AM radio..

Toyota yaris Mk 1 radio no sound


I had this problem on a 2004 Echo sedan.
Check the rear speaker leads. One had broken off on mine and was grounding against the speaker frame, causing the amp to shut down. If this is the case, solder the lead back on and insulate it with black tape to keep it away from any metal parts. When the fault is cleared the radio should play again.

I JUST GOT A 98 CATERA , IT DIDN'T HAVE A RADIO IN IT , SO I ORDERED ONE OFF EBAY ,PUT IT IN ,TOOK TO DEALER TO HAVE IT UNLOCKED & PROGRAMED , AND IT COMES ON ,SHOWS THE STATIONS & THE CLOCK WORKS...


If the system you bought is marked BOSE, it does not have any onboard amplifier power. The only powered radios for the Catera are units which only have AM/FM/Tape, all the CD units are Bose systems which used separate amps mounted on a tray in the trunk.

How to work 12 disk changer in 2001 corvette with a bose radio


Hello my name is Ben. I have had 2 of these cars and they both worked the same. Once you load the cartridge with your CDs and insert the cartridge into changer and close that little door on the changer the rest is automatic. On the dash you will see two buttons to the left of the radio display. One says TAPE AUX. That is the button that switches from radio to the CD changer. Push the TAPE AUX button and the CD changer will play whichever CD is selected. The PREV button if pressed during the first 8 seconds of a song will go to the previous song, if PREV is pressed after 8 seconds it will go to the beginning of the song. The PROG button will go to the next CD. The NEXT button will go to the next song on the CD you are playing. The REV and FWD allow you to quickly move within a song, either forward or backward. If you have any other questions, just ask, I have the owners manual readily available. I know it should be in the car, LOL

RADIO SHOWS STATIONS BUT NO SOUND FROM SPEAKERS


if no sound from both speakers check fuse,
if some hissing or humming on full volume then its a fault in oscilator section
if there is no hiss or hum at full volume its a breakage in the wires of speakers, if one speaker is ok its aagain a wire open problem in out put section
open up the speakers and just apply 1.5 volts dc for fraction of second to the speaker leads , if theres crackling the speaker is ok
also see for torn out cones or stuck cone or speaker coil open.

What system do you have? The Delco Bose system has amps in the speakers. If they're out, you get no sound. You may have power out of thge receiver to the amp, but none from the amp to the speaker. I have two speakers/amps that went out on me.
