Why and how does my GPX radio turn on by itself?

This has happened for two nights now, only once, around midnight. Is there a logical cause to this situation? And is it normal for them to do that?

Assuming that he radio is part of a clock,and not in a vehicle , it will be the alarm setting that is not turned off or not set properly

Sometimes my interior and exterior lights including my dash lights , flicker and flash on and off when I am diving at night. What could possibly cause this to happen.


Does it flash like there was a security alert? But without the horn going off! Like 8-10 flashes and then goes back to normal!

If so I had this problem with my Jeep GC a couple years ago and had a hell of a time figuring it out. Got to the point, I wouldn't drive it at night.

When it got cold, sometimes I would have to jump the system to get it started. Checked the alternator, but the voltage show 13 Volts so thought it was okay. Replaced the battery, no change but longer between problems. Replaced battery cables, again no change but much longer between problems. Then I had the lights, AC, radio and everything on at once, and could tell that the electrical system was really stressed. Pushed in the cigarette lighter and the lights flashed before.

Changed the alternator - no more problems. Cured the not starting and lights flashing. The only thing I could come up with is that if the security system detects a low current flow it sets itself off, and then resets itself. So the low output from the alternator would cause the problem when a lot of electrical things were in operation at once.

Check that all bulbs are working, if one of the indicators light is gone it will tick faster.

When this happens usually you have to replace the indicator light relay, you find it in the fuse box.

Just started a week or two ago. When I start (and it starts fine) my 2002 sunfire, the time on the radio is midnight. I reset the correct time and am good for the day, usually, but after sitting over...


This sounds like a problem with the radio itself, though it may be a wire. I don't believe there is much risk of the problem spreading to other systems in the car. There is one wire to your radio that is always hot so that the memories can be kept. If you would like to troubleshoot, I can send you instructions. This would involve taking the radio out and checking the wire for voltage.

No instrument panel lights on a 2003 chevy monte carlo


Most likely this is caused by either the dimmer being turned off (happens all the time on my Corvette) or the dimmer is defective.

Radio


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.

2003 Hyundai Tiburon GT radio


My factory radio was a bit buggy itself. However, I bought a new Pioneer 6.1" touchscreen, wired it up, and I have no problems with that. I'm sure you can find a factory replacement unit for a good price but you might as well upgrade.
