Question about 2001 Mercury Sable
When I turn the radio on, the is a crack in the speakers, sometimes a screech and then there is now sound. I loose control of the preset station buttons and the seek and scan buttons, i.e. they don't do anything when they are pressed. Sometimes going over a small bump will bring the speakers back on line but going over another bump will take them out again. Sometimes turning the power off will bring things back to normal but going over a bump will take them out. Once the car get warm enough inside the radio works just fine. This has gotten worse in the last 6 months in that it takes 20 to 30 minutes before the radio works reasonably well. I have replaced the radio as part of the console Electronic Climate Control but to no avail.
Possibly bad wiring with the tow package added on. Almost like it was not installed properly or that the lines where crossed or it was setup to a wrong fuse and it is popping eveything and making this happen

this is not strange at all, the problem is the symptom of a defective antenna or the antenna ground to the chassis sheet metal of the car, also the coax to the radio can be defective.

It may be low on Freon. You need gauges to tell. There are some cans which come with a gauge. The A/C system is suppose to cut off under heavy accelleration to give you all the power you need. The pause after can show low Freon.
The system is designed to operate in the middle range. You have a low side cutout switch and a high side cutout switch. You want to fill the system to operate in the optimum range which your gauges will show.
Its different pressures for different car companies.
The air out of the dash vent should be around 34 to 42 degrees..
