Radio problems

I took my 1967 camaro to an interior shop while it was there some one turned on the am/fm original radio and turned on seat heaters both are wired in hot. I am going to change that later. the battery ran down completely now the radio sounds like the speaker is busted a lot of static when you turn it up. could this have damaged the radio or speaker.

Re: radio problems

It sounds like they may have blow the speaker . Sense the speaker is the cheaper part of the system I would start there.

Re: radio problems

I don't doubt it! Absolutely one of the best features we got with our F150 and Mustang. Love the seat heaters in the winter! I just hadn't seen anyone put them in a first gen yet. What seats are they?

And in the effort to not highjack the thread completely, I don't see how the battery running down could have jacked up the stereo or the speakers.

Re: Radio problems

Sounds like they had the volume all the way up which probably blew the speaker.
