Question about 1986 Ford Thunderbird
I have a 1986 Thunderbird. About a year ago, I went to a local car stereo business that installed a cd player into my car (Clarion cd player, basic speakers). My problem all along is that the radio keeps being shut off when playing past a certain volume. I adjusted several things with the cd player settings that seemed to help at first. HOWEVER, if my headlights, heater and cd player are all going at the same time, it tends to shut off the cd player and restart it (usually when I'm braking or stopped). Does this sound like a power problem (like I need a stronger alternator?) or is this a wiring problem within the cd player installation? Thanks
No that sounds like the player is just old and most likely needs the tiny drive belts replaced.
