Question about 2000 Jaguar Vanden Plas
Recently purchased an 82 Lincoln - great car, except for the factory 8 track player. Installed new Pioneer DEH-3000IB head unit and system worked great, except the (rear) factory speakers sounded terrible - very distorted at any volume. I replaced the rear speakers (front ones sounded fine) with new Sonys. System sounds fantastic and works like a charm for about 30 minutes. After that, the volume quickly starts to fade down to nothing (any source). If I turn the unit off then back on, the system sounds great again for about 5 minutes then fades. Turn off then on, 5 minutes until fade. This is definitely a time issue, does not matter the volume I am listening or speed I am traveling. I am thinking this could be due to overheating, but I feel the unit and it is warm, normal warm, no where near "hot". Any advice?
Sounds like you got a bad stereo. it happens. i've i had the same thing happen, but the volume went up instead of down. check all the wires and make SURE they are all hooked up right.
