Definately sounds like a bad groung. Try removing the stereo then trace the larger black wire on the harness to the point it bolts or screws into bare metal. If you can't find anything obvious, try adding an inline spade crimp and running a wire from that to a known good ground

I can't get the radio in my 2007 Nissan versa to turn off. What should I do?


short of replacing the radio, cant do much.

you might have to pull a fuse from under the dash, especially if it is staying on when the car is not running.

alternately, you can add an external power switch to the radio fuse circuit, to disable the fuse circuit without crawling under the dash, as this is hardly convenient while driving

I seem to have a short in the radio on a 1989 gmc sierra. It works intermittently. If I thump on the dash it will come on and stay on until I hit a bump.


Sounds as if the circuit board has a cold solder. You will need to remove radio and take it a part and look for the cold solder and resolder. Good Luck.

Chrysler 99' town&country idiot lights guages go on&off


This is a very common problem on 1998 dodge caravan, voyager, t and County. You have a cracked circuit board in your instrument cluster. It is a dealer item. You can remove your cluster and install the circuit board yourself to save money but after the install you will have to take the vehicle back to the dealer to have it calibrated before the tach and the speedometer will work.

Check your neutral safety switch. I had the same problem during a hard rain, hit a bump and everything went out.

DASH LIGHTS WON'T COME UNTIL---! 1988 PLY VOYGER 3.0


either the harness on the cluster is loose somehow... or a bulb ( hooked up in series?) is blown.
Dash lights and tail lights are usually on the same fuse... so check and see if you have tail lights when next this happens.
