Question about 1999 Ford Escort
Recently, the radio has been difficult to adjust. Equalizing and alike. the controls don't stay where you pit them. I have to work with them for a while to get a good balance. Finally, they stay adjusted. Now, the radio won't stay on, the CD changes to tape and then the radio turns off by itself. What's up with that?
Its my belief that stereos in vehicles can become corrupted by maleware code. Do you play mp3, ipod, or burned cds in the stereo. I broke my factory stereo when I played a burned cd once. The market is ripe for virus and maleware protection for your car stereo so don't be surprised if you see virus protection and their virus creating friends on the scene soon. "Try reseting the stereo". You can also try to pull the ground to the car battery for 2 minutes but you will have to let the car idle for 10 minutes after you reconnect the post to set the idle correctly and let the car essentially reboot. Also jump starting a vehicle could cause malfunctions in the stereo if not breaking the electronics inside, very likely in the colder climates.
