Hi,

Either the radio's output ICs are fried or speaker/wires needs to be checked.

Incidentally, there are some higher end versions that has an Infinity Amplifier (P/N: 56038407AD) powering the speakers and not the radio (alone). If so, this amp needs a trigger on from the head unit to work and therefore, the trigger wire/connection must be checked. Otherwise, it may likewise require an internal check.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

On AM radio, there is often a sound, like a hammer hitting a 55 gal. drum interrupting the program. Does not do it on portable radio carried in the car.


all stations AM?

is the engine running?

for get the portable, some have vastly better a/m radios than any car has. in fact many cars radios a/m OR of horrid quality.

i can tell you why but its boring. (AGC, read up on that)

did you try the radio in car, parked say across town.?

did you try all stations

are you like 1 block away from an AM radio station, overloading yours.

AM radios are basically noise making radios., that is why FM was invented to stop that noise, (i cant hear it so.........?????)

are you listening to far away stations, this is normal

in fact you might hear 2 stations on same channel (freq)

and they will beat against each other.

on case of is in S.Calif where your station is clobbered by high power mexican stations 50,000 watts. strong.

and worse a night, does it get better in the day?



here is my advice, many AM stations have a rebroadcast on FM.

go there and listen. (use SAT radio?)

AM radio is subject to vast sources of noise.

ignition noise., high voltage power transmission line noise.

machinery noises, (electric)

or even illegal transmitters in your hood.



many new cars the AM radio is junk, they use this very cheap

chip inside that does this very poorly, but allows them to say

it has AM. ( for $1 cost)

the FM side is 10x better, or more. move up to FM like we all did back in 1967. (i used to build and sell converters back then)





answering for , all other modes work perfect, but AM radio..

I can no longer program radio stations on My 2002 Montero Sport


I dont know what wire u unplugged for sure but sounds like it was the memory power source. is the radio after market or OEM if its after market It should be a yellow wire but as far as OEM goes i cant tell you which wire is memory but if you contact the dealer and speak with a tech they should be able to tell you or print off the schematics for your vehicle.

I have a 99 Jeep cherokee and there is a popping noise when turning or backing up. I have replaced everything possible and the noise is still there


This may sound stupid but have you looked at your splash guards in your wheel wells. I had simular noises coming from one of my cars, I thought that it was the suspention, and after a while of looking around i found it was my splash guard rubbing against the tire. I was just glad I didn't take it in to a shop. LOL!

99 jeep cherokee sport 4.0l 6cyl voltage will go to 19v


The problem sounds intermittent, if you put volt meter on the battery while it is at that 19volt mark/reading(on the gauge cluster) you will be able to see if it is true. If your alternator is really charging over 16volts the lights should be getting brighter then usual and/or they are burning out. Find out ASAP, if the alternator has a defective voltage regulator, it needs to be replaced. Prolong use will damage components.

How do I set my radio stations?


Manually turn to the station you are wanting and hold the number 1 button you wish that station to be on until it blinks and or makes a beep sound. then manually turn to the next station and hold down the number 2 button til the screen blinks again, and so forth.

1994 Jeep cherokee am/fm radio backlight lamp is out and AC/Heat dash lamp is out


There is a tiny little peanut shaped light bulb inside the radio that provides the light for the dial, it is replaceable, you will need to remove the radio, then pull the top cover off the radio chassis, the bulb is under the cover.
