Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Radio LCD readout

The readout on the radio is fading in and out. Sometimes it will be on and sometimes the radio is totally black but plays just fine. Is this something fixable?

The LCD is back-lighted by a tiny bulb inside the radio chassis, pull the radio out, remove the sheet metal top cover, you will see a small twist in/out bulb socket at the rear of the radio display screen, remove it, take the bulb to a good full service parts store like NAPA or the dealer, the bulb is about $2.

Radio stop working


Sometimes this happens. Because a fuse blew. For a radio, sometimes in the red wire going to the radio is a black cylindrical fuse holder. Check for that. Or even in the fuse box is a separate fuse for the radio. Just check if the radio gets the 12 volt. If it is getting the power, there could be something defect in the radio. But that would be more difficult to pinpoint, without having the radio on my desk.

Radio only plays sometimes


check the antennae connection. typically a large coaxial plug into the radio. designed to maintain a grounded connection more than the actual signal input.

Mazda6 CD volume goes out


I have a mazda 6 also I dont have a manual for it but I believe it is a safety feature as we get in and turn cd's up loud and I believe it is so that as we sllow down it fades so we can hear sirens etc around us. Mine fades down when I drop below 40km and gets louder agian when I get back up to 60km.

Radio continues to fade in and out, plays for awhile fades out


Need more information on this if possible.

It may be the speed volume is enabled on your radio, does it fade out when you start to come to a stop? Some vehicles have a speed volume setting in their radios in which the radio raises and lowers the volume during driving conditions, like when your comming to a stop, the volume will automatically lower and during faster driving speeds will rise to a higher volume.

Hope this helps
