Display is erratic

I have a overall issue with the radio. The display doesn't "lock" in on power up and the display and radio won't operate. The display "jumps all over the place". Has anyone expereinced this problem and if it was repairable, what caused it and how do you fix it? I aquired this radio with this problem and don't even know where to begin to find the problem. It worked briefly when I recieved it but after some "on time", it went to this problem! Also, it is SMT so, where would i get parts for it (Mouser,Digi-Key, etc.)? Any way I can get help in fixing this, I would greatly appeciate it! Thank You! William Ona

SOURCE: My 1997 Plymouth Voyager won't

When it doen'st start, you will need to check for spark, fuel. If it doesn't have one of these, you will need to start tapping the relay related to starter, and fuel pump. The best way to determine which ones they are is to get a manual, but another way is to place your hands on the relays that you think maybe related and have someone turn the key on. The correct relay will click. Now, you will need to see if the same relays are clicking during the no-start. If any of them fails to click, tap them with a screw driver. If it starts then, replace the relay. It maybe interfering with the radio since this is an electrical event.

1997 acura radio not working

Swapping Coils from one cylinder to another is a waste of time
& does nothing
The reason is that coils only break down when the vehicle is
driven 20 miles or more & get hot. Doing that on a really hot day
speeds up your time frame on getting the job done

You buy one new coil or more & you put one new coil in a cylinder,
starting with any cyl that have a PO301 thru PO306 code

If that doesn't get rid of the bad coil ,you put the old one back
& walk the new coil to the next cylinder

When you disconnected the battery which is not necessary as long
as the ign key is of,you did something to the security system

I have no experience with that on your make car,I'm sorry
If you don't get an answer here there is plenty on the internet
to find & get the system reset.

If you have to, just walk in the open service bay door at a
dealer & I'm sure any tech will help you for free

probably a fuse, unless its an aftermarket radio that lost complete memory mode, and need to be re coded to work. the easiest way to check this is to look for the power wire, on your car its a blue wire with a yellow stripe for the battery one, and a gray wire for the ignition one that supply the radio with 12 volts, see if they have power,

Sounds like a case of selling a car, when the problems
become too stressfull & you bought it

Your shop tried but may not have been
in the upper 10% skill wise

Need the best place around & a
fresh start.

I think they had the battery disconnected
& ran out of knowledge when it can time to
give you the car back.

I won't even guess without the car to test
