2002 Dodge Ram radio (not infinity) shuts off after being on for 6-7 seconds.

Previous owner said same thing happened with his other 2500 Ram and it was a later model. Playing a CD will give the same result- 6-7 seconds of sound then shuts off and shows the clock. If its turned off then turned back on (with car still running) you get another 6-7 seconds of sound before it again shuts off. We have someone on radio watch continually turning off and back on adn we then get to hear most of the song...;).

SOURCE: Infinity Bass link keeps cutting out.

Tapping into front or rear gets high level signal 3 plus volts at low impedance which is totally unsuitable for the sub's line level input which is more like 300millivolts > A competent tech could make up an attenuator patch or just take it to a professional car installer before you do more damage

Hello swanaprslc,

It sounds like the "always hot" or battery wire is not connected to a 12V constant source. If you used a wiring harness, check and make sure that the pin in the harness that connects to the "yellow" wire coming from your Kenwood MP142 is hot with the ignition off. If you did not use a wiring harness, make sure that the yellow wire is connected to a fused 12V + constant source.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Hi Can you please help

i would look for a little hole about the size of a pen nib. it would be the reset button. if that does not work then i would disconnect your cars battery and then remove your radio fuse for roughly 5-10 min ( to allow any residual currant to drain) then refit both. that should reset your radio system. It is EXTREAMLY rare for serious damage to be done to a car radio just from pushing buttons.
I hope i have managed to help you with your problem.

Take it back

Did you not test it out--- before paying

Infinity wiring diagram

Sorry, your question is impossible to answer. First it is listed as 2004 Dode Ram 2500. Then you ask for a wiring diagram for Infinity. Infinity what??? What year? What model? Which SYSTEM for this Infinity are you needing wiring diagrams for?

I have a 1997 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 Diesle 5 speed manual I have a factory radio with 6 disc. changer the radio works and so does the cd changer but I get very little volume Im sure its a amplifer problem....

To determine how your speakers are amplified you will need to know what speaker package is installed.

Usually Laramie editions come with Infinity speakers.
If I remember correctly the Infinity speakers have appliers on them.

My dodge truck is a year 99 2500 series, and I have already had to replace the door speakers. I used the cheap Walmart speakers. (6x9) They fit well enough.

Note: If your truck came with amplified speakers, non amplified speakers will only push what your radio can provide it in Wattage.

2001 dodge ram 2500 (gasoline)

it sounds like the fuel pump to me also. when you first start the truck the fuel pump builds pressure in the system and as you drive the fuel pump can not keep up with the demand of driving. you should find a service station that can test the pressure that the pump is putting out to make sure

2002 Ram Radio problem

It sounds like a cold soldered joint internally in the radio. My advice is to buy a nice aftermarket radio with an MP3 CD player. MP3 gives you the option to burn music from your computer. In addition, MP3 CDs will hold over 100 songs per CD.
It MIGHT be a poor connection at the power connector on the rear of the radio. You could try pulling out the radio and cleaning the connection before purchasing a new radio.
