When you start your car the clock and radio dosen't work when your car is in a parking lot facing the sun. It only works when it is in the driveway. Does it mean I need a new radio?

You seem to indicate from your observations that the car electronics/radio hangs up or malfunctions when the circuit is warm or hot. however when it is cooled there is no issue.
This can be due to many reasons but the possible factor can be due to some clogging within the radio/clock. You will need to remove the set and clean it well, as you clean the boards.
Also you can simulate the heat on to the sections to confirm but it needs patience.

On the components, you might try a separate ground. See if that helps? Check the battery negative connections. I've seen this even on newer vehicle where instrument cluster or whatever would dim a little when you turn on headlamps. I think it's a ground issue? Just my opinion.
On any component that doesn't work, check voltage and ground, you could try a redundant ground.

That sounds like the fuel pump may have lost it's prime. Does it have fuel injection, or a carburetor on the engine? How much gas was in the tank while it was parked on an incline? Have you tried any starting fluid sprayed into the air intake hose, toward the engine? Warning! Don't use much starting fluid! Perhaps a one or two second burst, and have someone crank it immediately after you have stepped back at least 6 feet from the engine. If it fires, then it is definitely a fuel delivery problem! But it won't run long like that unless the fuel pump starts working again ... which is most likely when the engine is cold!

How to take the dash out to get to the radio


there are 3 downward facing screws one on each side of the steering collum and one above the center. the panel just snaps in and may require a strong pull to get the tabs to pop loose. it comes apart better after parked in the sun. with the panel bezel removed the radio is held in with tamperproof torx screws, or key headed bolts, Snap-on or dealer tools.

My 2002 Ford Escape has been acting strange. The


I have the same problem! I also have 2002 Ford Escape and the radio/CD player just stopped while I was driving. It comes on when I start the car but goes off as soon as I put it into gear. My cigarette lighter (where I plug in my phone) also appears to not be working. This just started yesterday, so I don't have a solution. We've had a lot of rain here and my car has been outside. I'm hoping that something may just need to dry out. I'll post if I find something out. Please post any information that you've found!

Car died in parking lot, replace battery, still no start...when I turn key, car wont start and the power on radio(the clock) also dies...like losing power somehow....


It's possible that the starter is bad but don't think it would cause the car to die or just stop running. You say in a parking lot, did you shut it off and then tried starting it? and no start? if so check the starter !!!
