2005 hyundai tucson battery drains. We're almost positive it's the radio. What radio can we get to replace it and fix the problem


Unless the radio is defective, or, in the case of an aftermarket radio, wired incorrectly, there is no reason for a radio to cause a major battery drain. Yes, they do have a constant source to maintain memory, but that current is minimal. Any radio, operating properly and installed correctly (meaning that the main power is on a switched circuit that goes off with the ignition switch) should be fine.

Amplifier draws too much wattage


Buy new battery
ampifiers take little current to rise the voltage
also look for unwanted bugs xD

Can a new car radio kill the battery?


Yes and that was due to bad installation. I have had 3 car stereos installed on my 98 RAV4 through Best Buy and never had battery problems. I even had 2 amps installed as well but the installers had to make me buy this 200-dollar thing that would not drain the battery.

If you are getting a drain through the radio's power supply it could eventually drain down the battery if it was improperly installed, I would pull the fuse for the radio and see if the drain continues, if the drain does not stop there is another short somewhere. To learn more :

Best buy installed radio & speakers bad reception told by installer factory wired wrong true or false can i get new harness & instructions where & price


Best Buy has a pretty good reputation for installing aftermarket radios and they generally use a new harness connected to the old harness to make it work right.

I would try to have the reception issue fixed by Best Buy before the warranty runs out.

How long ago did you have it worked on?

I'm sure they will make it right if you take it back.

Even, if it requires changing out the radio.

Have them check that the antenna is properly connected to the back of the radio.

the radio is pulling down the battery, check to make sure it is install properlt, also make sure your battery is not weak, because remember the radio draws power at all time, to keep the time and your preset radio station. so check the battery for proper strenght first please.

How do I get my radio unlock code?


You can buy a neat little tool called a settingsaver (pretty much a 9v battery that plugs into the lighter. It permits you to disconnect battery without having problems with radio, security system etc.
