My 2007 chrysler 300 radio makes a popping noise a d then sound stops after a while turn radio back on and sound is working


the speakers maybe blown out, there mite be a short in the system, the antenna maybe loose or have short in the connector, there a short in an electronic component in the radio, it also could be a grounding issue, when you hit a bump it looses it connection or the unit has short in the receiver and it cuts out the signal in the radio station, losing power some where, if i was you go to stereo shop or buy new radio, all the money you would spend looking or trying to repair would cost you a lot of money, troubleshooting, radio, speakers, wiring, shop supples, no warranty after wards,
good luck

if aftermarket , typical.
can be loose fuse.

CD/ AUX mp3, radio, am/am, all mode fail?
or just one, this is key to what bad.

2002 Nissan Sentra radio stopped playing.


It could be one of a couple of problems. First check the speakers and see if the cone rubber has worn or fallen out. It will be very visible if it has( the most outer piece of the cone ). If this is the case you can just replcae the speakers and all should be good.
Secondly it may be a short, if one of the wires connecting to the speakers is touching steel anywhere, the stereo will short the output circuts and there will usually be no volume. Any good stereo has a protection circut, so it doesn't blow the out puts on the stereo up.
Im guessing its the first problem, those nissans have pretty budget speakers made of paper cone..

1995 Saab 900S Left speaker doesn't work when using tape player


sounds like the cassette adapter has a bad channel, or didn't fully seat into place. Try removing and re inserting, to play the other side of the adapter if the wires will allow it. Then auto reverse the cassette deck to allow a different portion of the cassette head to be used for the signal. Those cassette adapters are poor quality, and put alot of time on the mech.
