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.

Does anyone know where the aerial / antenna is for a Mercedes R320 R Class 2006


I would be asking the service dealer centre this question because some upper priced cars have the aerial in either the windscreen glass or the rear window glass. some aerials are nothing more than a small fiberglass bump on the hood near the rear . Instead of taking the wireless out for repair that is not fixing the problem , take the car to the shop and have the technicians check it in car for a problem

Select the AM or FM wave band.
Tune the radio to a station then press and hold down the 1 or 2 or 3 pre tune station button until it beeps. Then this radio station is then set to which pre tune button you have selected.
Repeat to set the buttons for other radio stations.

Dodge B350 Ignition switch


The lock the ignition key fits in is not the actual start switch. The actual switch is located on the steering column under the dash and is actuated by a metal rod that is pushed when you turn the key. as you turn the key see if you can feel anything moving on the steering column under the dash and then follow it to the switch and see if it is actually activating the start switch.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN FIX IT IS A SMALL CIRCUIT BOARD INSIDE THE RADIO THAT RUNS THE DISPLAY AND BUTTONS FOR STATION CHANGE ETC. THE ONLY WAY TO FIX IT IS TO PULL THE RADIO OUT AND SEND IT TO A AUTHORIZED GM/STAURN ELECTRONICS REPAIR CENTER, THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT HAVE THE PARTS AND REPAIR MANUALS.

Radio changes stations by itself when memory seat buttons are pushed


It is supposed to change the radio settings to what ever was programmed at the time the program was set. Your van has settings that can be programmed to personalize more than just the seat. It stores the programmed radio station the seat settings and on some vans that have the power tilt steering it changes that too. If you do not want it change the radio settings you will need to store a new setup for the number that you use with the radio station you want.
