Why do I lose radio signal on my 2006 h3 hummer when I turn on my ignition? My radio works fine until I turn on my ignition.

If it works at the accessory position and not on the run position. I would go after the run wire to the radio. If other things don't work in the run position, look to the ignition switch.

Radio works fine when the key is turned on but when you crank it doesn't any of the radio controls work.

The radio is automatically turned off during "crank"., because the voltage surges would damage the radio.

Why does my radio not work in temperatures below 4* Audi tt

Check voltage while your car is running and radio is not working. Some engine at low temperatures are using much more electrical power (diesel glow plugs, electrical air heater) which can affect other devices inside your car.

radio's do fail if the radio and nothing ells is wrong you can replace the radio. buttons stopping working on the radio is a good sign there is a problem with the radio and nothing ells is wrong with the wiring. it may have over heated some time ago and has been working on borrowed time from the other components in the radio. now working with the engine running is down to there is more volts running into the radio with the engine running . no engine running it will have a steady 12v around. but with engine running it would be around 14v or just under. would replace radio one from same year as yours or same radio code type. hope this helps you

I just installed a new stereo and now my running lights are always on even when I turn headlight switch off. It is a U.S. car and everything else is working fine.

There is a wire that attaches to the radio that turns on the radio lights together with the park/running lights. You must've attached that wire to a full time power source if the running lights are on all the time, right after a radio install. Recheck your radio wiring.

Heater, wipers,and radio

Likely you have a bad ignition switch AND, the radio probably was wired into the headlamp circut, Move the radio hot lead to an "acc" port on the fuseblock.
