Question about JVC Car Dual SIRIUS Satellite Radio/CD Receiver, KDS51

Problem with my JVC KDS51

Had this radio for a while now and suddenly 4-5 months ago it started acting weird. when the card is in park or neutral the radio plays fine. When i put it in drive the sound cuts in/out until i take my foot off of the brake, then it plays fine. If i am driving it plays fine. Only when i am stopped at a light and have my foot on the brake do i have problems. Now i noticed that all the lights on the radio are fine when cutting in/out and it's not just when playing CDs, it's also when listening to AM and FM stations. Any help would be great!

I have a VRCD400-SDU displays and modes but no sound.

The radio's output amplifier has failed.
Most of the time this is due to a blown speaker.
Repair is not recommended - as it exceeds the replacement value of the radio.

My kdc 138 is acting weird

CLICK HERE for your owners manual.

To exit DEMO mode - (see page 12)

And also pull the radio and check the brown TEL mute wire is not touching ground to activate the Telephone Mute option.

It should be taped off or terminated and is not used in your installation.
