Question about 2000 Toyota Camry
My Camry is a previously owned vehicle, known to have been in at least one accident (rear right bumper). The radio has never worked correctly since I started driving the car four years ago.
Most of the time the CD player skips the disks I try to play. It is apparent that it is a problem with the stereo given that the skips coincide with bumps in the road. Sometimes it is only with the large bumps, but others it will be with every small object, making it nearly impossible to listen to. Every now and then a CD will play fine but usually it skips, giving me the impression of a loose or damaged wire.
Also, the radio will act up otherwise every now and then as well. Most of the time it is the volume button -- it will turn the volume up when i turn it down and vice versa. Also, one time none of the buttons would respond, even the power button. I had to restart my car for it to go back to normal. Oh yes, and the tape player has never worked. All this sounds electrical to me, but since I have not tampered with car wiring before I would like some opinions, please!
So, does this sound like I should check the wiring, replace the stereo, or replace everything? If I should check the wiring, please let me know if this is something a typical amateur could do themselves or if it requires certified mechanics. Any links for instructions would be appreciated. THANKS!!
