Question about 2006 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Radio Station Keeps Changing Automatically

One radio station keeps changing. If I turn on the radio station, about 10-15 seconds later, the radio retunes itself and moves to a different station. The radio station works perfectly in many places. I live in a town and Beat (the radio station that always changes) works perfectly in the town, no frequency issues or anything, it's perfectly clear but it just keeps changing in my car. If I drive outside of the town I can list to Beat easily, without any interruptions, it works perfectly. I don't know what is wrong with it. It used to work perfectly until a little while ago when suddenly, any time I turned on Beat, after a few seconds it would just retune itself. Help Please

SOURCE: 04 Santa Fe Issues

I would look for a ground that is inadequate.
If any part of this is operating essentially without shielding due to a bad ground, then cell towers, a radio or TV station transmitter, CBs, land mobile radio, amateur radio - any of these can inject enough signal to drive modern electronics completely bananas.
The onboard electronics used for just about everything that is remotely controlled by switches generates a ton of digital garbage and can interfere with anything.

The kind of problem you are experiencing started when we stopped using vacuum tubes 50 years ago operating at high voltages and started using semiconductors that use much lower voltages.

A tech with a common multimeter should be able to locate the missing ground connection without too much trouble.

SOURCE: 2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT radio

I had problems with my tiburon gt when I first bought it. Radio would turn on randomly. I looked around though and found rings right above the shifter where he would set his coffee in the morning because his cups wouldn't fit. I bet they would spill now and then and ruined the radio. Simply replacing it should not cause a problem but if you have the radio out get a flashlight and take a look at the wires in the back. I had a friend whos radio would not turn off even with the key out. There was a vacuum line behind his player and it rubbed on some wires in the back and caused him to have a short. Also if you have the factory sub in the back you should still have use of it with a new head unit.

SOURCE: no sound from new stereo

check the speakers in the rear deck, in the rear hatch or trunk, often the two wires that come out of the speaker touch if that happens it will short out the speaker drivers in the radio most times no permanant damage will occur. separate the wires so they do not touch,or touch the metal speker base, that may not be the problem but its a start..

Hi,
Probably has a security code. It's in the owner's manual or you'll have to take it to the dealer.

I have a buick and while driving it it will ding and change the station and sometimes it will turn it on and off


Got to love electronics. It could be the BCM or the radio. The BCM makes the ding noise. The switching is the radio. I would replace the radio first.

I've had this problem in the past and it's down to 2 possibilities. 1 is the radio controls on the steering wheel sticking or shorting , especially when turning the steering wheel if your automobile has radio controls on the steering wheel. 2 the radio has a shorted circuit board on the back of the radio face.

Why does my hhr radio try to load and eject a cd disc when there isn't one inserted


There is an arm in/on the left side of the disc player. Most likely the spring inside it is broken. Leaving the arm in the pushed back position. Some times kids put coins in there also. This will cause things to happen, to include killing the radio and/or cd player.

I need the mercedes benz 1999 clk 430 radio code


AR82.60-P-7502-01A Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (750) Radio Becker Europa 2000 with CODE (751) Radio Becker Grand Prix 2000 with RDS)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it is not operational when re-connected. After switching on the ignition and the radio, the readout CODE appears in the display.
  2. The code number for the radio is advised to you on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. To enter the first digit of the code number, you have to continue pressing station button 1 until the correct digit appears in the display. Adopt the same procedure for the second, third and fourth digits.
  4. Once you have entered the correct code number with the station buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and confirmed the entry with the SEEK button (press down), the readout CODE disappears. The radio can now be operated.
  5. If you enter a wrong code three times, you must wait 15 minutes before making a new entry. In addition, if 9 incorrect entries are made, the radio will then not operate for 24 hours. During this time the radio and the ignition (terminal 15) must remain switched on.
AR82.60-P-7502-01B Coding Radio
(MODEL all with CODE (353) Audio 30 APS with CODE (510a) Radio MB Exquisit with traffic news decoder, with RDS (Becker) with CODE (512a) Radio MB Special with traffic news decoder, with RDS.)

  1. If the radio is disconnected from the power supply, it cannot be operated by simply reconnecting. After switching on the ignition and the radio the word "CODE" appears in the display on the radio.
  2. The code number for the radio is given on the enclosed CODE CARD.
  3. Enter the code number with the station button, e.g. number 1, station button 1. After entering the first number the word "CODE" disappears and the number entered appears followed by 4 dashes. The next character to be entered flashes. After entering all five numbers, the first character starts flashing again. In this state the code number can be written over as frequently as desired. A correction can be made only by entering the complete code number again.
  4. Confirm code number: Press TUNE, AUTO/SEEK or SC button. The radio automatically switches on and indicates the radio station or frequency stored with station button 1.
  5. If an incorrect code number is entered and confirmed, the word "CODE" appears again on the display. If an incorrect code is entered three times the word "WAIT" appears on the display and the radio locks up for approx. 10 min. If the code is entered incorrectly three times again the radio locks up again for 10 min. Three more incorrect entries (a total of 9 incorrect attempts) increase the lock-up time to 60 min. Another three incorrect entries lock up the radio for another 60 min. The waiting time runs only when the radio is switched on.

I have a 1997 318i and the radio turns off every 20 or so minutes and comes back a while later and requires a code. is this a radio or fuse or connection problem ?


No...........neither, that's the wife changing the station on you.

Seriously, if it requires a code, you've lost main power to the radio, that's the only way it reports back code. got a loose wire somewhere.
