    It could be, but I do not have a fast tool to check codes. I already checked oil level. As Guru and familiar with similar problems, could have given a more detailed explanation in layman terms. Being in elevator repairs for forty seven years I and if asked a question I would give a lot better answer then you did. I could have gotten same answer from neighbor. It's not worth $9.99

When that light flashes there is a dtc stored.. itflashes to let you know an error occurred with the transmission.. could be as easy as low fluid level..it needs to be scanned for codes to be properly diagnosed

    often it is a detected difference between shaft speeds at certain points in the transmission, often indicating excessive slippage of the OD band or elsewhere...the computer can signal us when they don't match up as expected by setting a code

1996 3500 sierra left signal causes all lights to flash


Well, you're dealing with a short. If the right turn signal only works the right side bulbs, you know you're issue must be in the switch. The only way left turn signal would light the right side, but the right signal would not light the left is if you added a diode, which I doubt is the case. So the switch itself is suspect. That or a wiring issue. If you just bought the truck, and this is an existing issue I'd suspect wiring. If it just started doing this I'd suspect the switch.


I would check to make sure someone didn't monkey with the wires and switch the left turn signal with the hazard lights or something (do your hazard lights happen to flash only the left turn signals?). If it has or had an aftermarket alarm you need to check their work and see what may be screwed up. Alarm systems often tap into the parking lights, which will look like all 4 turn signals, but are actually dimmer filaments. Flashing the parking lights would actually make your radio flash too, so I'm kind of leaning this way. Can't say for sure on limited information though.

Why won't my radio work in my 2012 Ford Focus. At first it will cut off and only come back on after I cut car off and restart it. Then it started to make loud crackling and popping noises.


You need a new radio and wiring. Take it to your local ford house if it still under warranty. Your radio harness had a short and fryed your radio.

Lexus radio sound crackles then cuts out altogether


in radio mode, A./m and F/m
and what about other modes. Cassette, CDDA disc? all crackle
if only radio, then connect a test antenna to the radio
solved?>
if not the radio is bad, or DC power to the radio is bad.

cuts out, does that mean, just the sound dies in all modes. (left and right speakers)
or the sound and even the dial lights and station tune data is dead too.

cuts means nothing with out specifics.

Radio static


a bad ground somewhere. Could be shot speakers as well....the crackling is sometimes mistaken for poor radio reception, try a CD, see if you still get it.

2003 Grand Prix electrical issues


when you lose the cluster and radio and temperature control and headlights, I would suspect a short in the wiring harness. If you hear a crackling sound and smell burning plastic this could be the issue. This is not my forte, but I have seen this before in trailblazers and bravada models.

Bose radio comes on but no sound in my 2004 chevy avalanche.Sometimes even with radio off you hear a popping sound come from speakers. thanks


First Visually check all your fuses. Does rig have amp for stereo by any chance? It sounds like amp is bad and/or fuse is blown. Amp is wired between radio and speakers, and a shorted amp would make crackling in speakers when radio is OFF

My speakers will start to make a crackling sort of noise then stop. Sometimes the radio will not play at all. Sometimes the speakes make this crackling noise then they stop making the noise and play ok for...


Are your speakers factory? Sometimes the wires start corroding from moistures or from not being covered well. If you can or know someone who can, you may try checking the wires to the speakers/radio. If they are corroding, they may be shorting out.

Radio does not turn on - red security light sometimes flashes


I had the same problem, the main plug in the back of the radio does not seat correctly, you have to buy the radio removal tools which are four "keys" you pop into the four corner slots of the radio, pull out the radio, unclip the main wire plug and re-clip it in... it'll work fine, however, its happened to me about 3 times in the 6 years I've owned the car, so keep those keys handy. Oh, and don't believe any dealer that'll tell you different, my dealer told me I needed a new $500 radio, and the radio removal tools were like $300.... I got them for like $20 on ebay.
