Hi Tony

It sounds to me like the seek/scan function is enabled. Perhaps the button is stuck. Try pressing it a couple of times to see if that fixes the problem.

When my car was serviced the engineer collected and delivered back the car. When car came back it was on Capital. I put it back onto KCFM but it keeps jumping to various stations.


The battery may have been disconnected during servicing, clearing the station memory. You will have to select favorite stations again.

I have a Bosch radio that will play for a few minutes then all of a sudden no sound. Just stops. But it will still be on. Can change stations and everything so it is on just no sound. please help


Sounds like the internal relay is kicking in because it is detecting a short in one of your speaker wires. disconnect each speaker one at a time and locate the one that causing the failure. (if you disconnect the correct one, the radio will stop cutting out). Then find out what is wrong with that speaker circuit. Maybe the speaker wire has chafed through and is shorting to ground.

Amplifier built into stereo is shorting out causing it to kick off and no sound will play. Resetting by removing power for a few minutes will reset and will work until short is noticed again by system.

My radio only works for a short distance then goes staticky, also can't set the time


the operator guide in the glove box , covers time set.
all radios do that.
and if not normal, the antenna is broken or fell off the rear of radio.

if got static switch to FM ,
many AM stations, broadcase to am and fm same content.
so use FM. its static free. (by design) but does fade sooner.
you can in fact hear AM station 12,000 miles away it night
called super stations, 50,000 watt stations. ive done this many time.

did you try another car, in same spot , and same station?
are you in under ground parking?

My 2002 chevy malibu's radio seems to be shorting out, the radio will work fine but randomly the sound shuts off the radio still shows the radio station and even says which artist is playing but there...


I'd suggest using the balance and fade controls to cut out each speaker one by one. to possibly determine if you have shorted speaker or speaker wiring. As far as the turn signal clicking noise, the hazard switch is the actual flasher unit for the turn signals, and could be the culprit, but the most likely cause is the turn signal switch itself. It is usually caused by corrosion across the contacts, which can be cleaned out fairly easily, but more typically, the switch is just replaced

Car would not start. Is it electrical?


The voltage regulator inside the alternator has failed. Replace it ASAP and fully recharge your battery before driving again to avoid battery failure. If you attempt to drive w/ a faulty alternator, the battery may short, boil over, or completely discharge and may then need to be replaced.

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.

Just recently sometimes when i turn the key nothing happens; if i do it several times it comes alive. 1992 sc300 5 speed.90,000 miles also, why do tires last less than 10,000 miles. where is best place to...


Sounds like the ignition switch is failing. Tires come in different composites for short or longer life. Cheaper tires, poor alignment and driving styles can cause early wear where as high mileage tires and easy driving with a good 4 wheel alignment can last sometimes upwards of 100,000 miles. service manuals are available online or at you local auto parts store for around $25.

Check the dimmer switch, they are known to fail. Play around with the knob by turning is and you should get your lights back, if not remove the steering column covers and spray electrical cleaner in the dimmer switch and just work it in. Last resort replace the dimmer switch.
