Question about 1997 Acura CL
This is going to be long, so you can see the trials I went through
My dad bought me a car that to me I'm amazed it still runs, it's an Acura 3.0 CL, the radio has been having problems god knows how long, I didn't think of anything when he made me test the car, the radio was off and didn't think of anything. When I got my car finally able to drive and all I turned on the radio it made a sound that got louder as I went fast, always felt like a whistle/spaceship what my friends call the sound.
The radio goes on and off and I had to turn on the lights of the cars just to make the radio stay steady (this was after the first time i got the radio fixed, and there is a wire connected to the sound system in the back of the car that all technicians tell me isn't bad), I got the car fixed for starter problems and the radio changed and it was just worse, now turning on the light wouldn't work on the car and it was luck of the draw when it wanted to stay steady and actually play a song instead of parts.
The last technician that was looking at the car told me it was the alternator, when that was fixed, the sound went away, but the radio wouldn't play any songs, but you could see the radio was working. Then we figured out that the radio only lets song play when the car is cold.
I don't know what to do anymore and I'm desperate for my car to just play music, that's all =/ I'm a bass fiend, and these past six months have been hard on my bass needs.
It sound as if you have a short in you radio and if it was me i would get me a nice one with a cd and installation kit and that way you know what wire is which and you would be a lot happier so give that a try
