My Jensen radio works only at high volume whenever I hit bumps on the road it cuts off only one side of the speakers are the only ones that are working

Check the ground wire to the radio and speaker because it is probably loose. You may have to solder your connections to the radio and speakers.

My 2007 chrysler 300 radio makes a popping noise a d then sound stops after a while turn radio back on and sound is working

the speakers maybe blown out, there mite be a short in the system, the antenna maybe loose or have short in the connector, there a short in an electronic component in the radio, it also could be a grounding issue, when you hit a bump it looses it connection or the unit has short in the receiver and it cuts out the signal in the radio station, losing power some where, if i was you go to stereo shop or buy new radio, all the money you would spend looking or trying to repair would cost you a lot of money, troubleshooting, radio, speakers, wiring, shop supples, no warranty after wards,
good luck

Car Radio has intermittent audio

bad wiring
if stock ? its not normal
if aftermarket , typical.
can be loose fuse.
or bad connections to the head or amp.
did you lose all sources?
CD/ AUX mp3, radio, am/am, all mode fail?
or just one, this is key to what bad.
if lamps go dead.
or just front or back speakers go dead.

Radio or speakers don't work

Betting that you've got a wiring issue on the back of the radio. Pull the stereo & check your connections. Somewhere the speaker wires came loose.

You should be able to check/trace without a ton of disassembly but it could be connection in a whole different place-Also that is fairly common with Toyota that it's actually in the radio itself-Ask yourself did anyone work on any part of car just prior to noticing this condition-Jt & Good Luck

Stereo cuts in and out

If it's the stock radio it's probably something internal that's come loose, if your still under warranty have the dealer replace it, if not buy a new aftermarket radio.

if you have an aftermarket radio, you should pull it out and check for loose wires, there will be a diagram on the either top or bottom of the radio.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. More then likely, you have a loose wire in the back somewhere. You will need to take the radio out and inspect the wires in the back. Look for loose wires/connections or possibly a cut wire.

Alternator feeding back through speakers

It could either be the ground or the speaker is about to go. Play the radio with the car off and see what you hear. If you still hear the static then try tighting all the connection on the alternator. Even check your battery terminals make sure cabaes are tight. Static is hard to pin point but its almost always just a loose connection somewhere. hope this helps
