Question about Cars & Trucks
I can charge the battery and it will start, but not hold a charge consistently. Also I can turn the radio on while driving and it will intermittently go off and on by itself. I turned the radio off, and I could hear the CD player trying to engage without me trying to start it.
Electrical problem in cars can be a real bear to troubleshoot. Suggestions are a leak to ground draining the battery. Bad battery a possibility but this wouldn't explain the other problems. Check that you have good grounds and connections. This kind of problem can have pros scratching their heads but a good one might zero right in on the problem.

I pulled the fuse
put the fuse back in
turn on the radio, insert a CD
pulled the fuse again, counted to 5
inserted the fuse again
while the CD started playing I clicked the Menu button and used the tunning dial to select default settings, and it asks if you want to reset default choose yes.
my radio works fine now!
thanks to all who posted this solution it works!

Try "clearing the cache" by removing the negative battery cable for a few minutes. Before doing so, be sure you know how to reset the clock and radio codes & presets.
