SOURCE: service engine light flash

It sounds like a transmission electrical problem (possible pressure control solenoid, or trans fluid pressure switch). Unfortunately to be sure you have to have someone scan for stored codes. Although the problem is intermittent there should be "history codes" saved in the PCM. Hope this helps

SOURCE: radio is locked on chevy cavalier

I replaced the radio on a similar car with an identical junk-yard radio/cd player. of course it was locked. I went to the dealership and they were nice enough to plug a hand-held computer under the dash and unlocked it for free. Took about 5 min. Hope this helps.

1999 Ford F250 driving down the road loud pop in dash smoke coming from doesn't work and neither do turn signals. Fuse?

Well, the radio and the TS do not use the same fuse. Have you checked the fuse panel under the steering column to see if any fuses are open? Is the radio the original or is it aftermarket?

AM FM radio Compact Disc player o.k. for 30 sec after start, then nothing. Fuses o.k.

Maybe a shorted speaker causing the power amplifier inside the radio to shut down or a speaker wire shorted to chassis and last the internal amplifier of the radio cd set faulty by itself... set volume to zero power it off take out the radio cd set; remove the speaker iso plug leaving the power plug only in and power it on if necesary turn again the volume down to zero and wait if it keeps turned on it a speaker problem if it shut itself off again then you go for a repair or a new one

The radio in my 1995 jeep grand cherokee plays full volume on the right channel when turned on.

  1. bad radio amp
  2. bad wiring to speakers.
  3. or bad speakers.
the tests are easy, ask.
my guess is the weak side is bad, the load side is ok.
you can turn the volume down on the load side using volumn control
if yes that side is ok, fix weak side.

ask how, but make sure the wiring in all 4 corners are not damage
and at both ends of harness.

Replace the volume control knob on my radio for 1997 camry

I have a question. I own a 1997 Toyota Camry. the on off controls for the stereo is really messed up. It is really loose to. But you can be driving down the road and it will go from low volumn to high volume. If I hit a bump or turn a corner it will either get louder or softer. What can be done.

How can I tell if battery is bad or a short draining battery

Take the battery to an auto store. They have an amp meter to test it with. Check for poor connections at the back of the radio. If it's wired to a hot lead and not the ignition ( key on) or aux, my old cd player would turn itself on and run down the battery while parked. For me, bad radio.

I will be driving down the road & periodically my radio stops working

This is one of two things, iit may be a loose connection or bad radio, take radio out and turn it on, wiggle on move wiring around if it goes out then its a bad connection but if it does not then radio is bad, the radio can be repaired but may be cheaper to replace with a used one or aftermarket radio.

My seat ibiza radio keeps turning itself on and running the battery down

Simple solution for anyone! Had the same problem with radio turning itself on in my Seat Ibiza Stella 1.4 2000. Here's what you do..
. Remove front panel
. Disconnect tape player and open it
. Clean the mother board paths(bottom side) with some chemical liquid not to strong(i used sticker remover) from black dirt. You can scratch between paths with a needle for better effect.
. Put all back together
. Problem solved.
It was driving me mad but now it's working when I want it to :)
