The radio. Doesnt come on immediately. sometimes takes 10-15 minutes...sometimes 3 hours. Once on it won't go off..until we turn it or the car off. so it doesn't seem to be a loose wire or like that.

Maybe the unit beeds attention, if the vehicle is recent visit a main dealers garage/service department. You might just want to visit an ICE retailer and have it tested/repaired or replaced

When radio or cd plays every few minutes it makes funny sound and say tp search

Try a new unclutted radio with a on and off knob ,or a really old solid state transistor one from the 70s ,all these electronics nowdays do my head in ,i cannot even find the on/off button on a lot of modern vehicles ,nothing worse than taking a motor for a test drive and the radio or cd is on and trying to turn it off to hear the vehicle noises

Reset radio

Try keeping your key in the ignition and click it on the first click let it stay in there for about 3 hours or until it goes back to code sometimes it may take longer. You can drive that long too but your car can not be cut off. Hope this helps for you.

I took out the ignition fuse while the car was running. i put it back in but now that i want to start it, it doesnt. i dont think its the battery because lights and radio come on and it cant be the starter...

take the positive battery cable off wait 10 minutes and reconect if it does not work check the fuel pump fuse sometimes the fuse for fuel pump will trip to protect the car
