No, it is not the radio .... It is one of the radio wires .. either the power wire or the ground wire is not properly connected ... If a shop did this, take it back ... they should be able to fix it quickly ... If you did the install, just re-check your wires, especially is you spliced, twisted and taped ... start by just shaking the harness while the radio is turned on ...

Also, if the radio lights remain on, you might want to check the speaker wires as well.

What's wrong with my audio?!?!

i cant find or know where to look for a short in my 25th anniversary 1992 RS 305. the radio cuts in and out, only the sounds but the lights stay on when i hit a bump or slam the passenger door. i just put in a new pioneer deh 5800 so i know it's not the radio. if you know where to look please tell me.i also know that it's not the speaker wiring and i installed it myself.
thanks

Edit by Mod: one post is enough, merging them for you.
