Hi,

My car radio has stopped working in FM mode (every now and then will
work for a few seconds), it still works in AM and the CD player works,
its just FM that gives me the problem. Does anybody have any ideas
before I go and buy another one. Oh and by the way, the FM seems to
scan and find the correct channels but just no sound - although I may
be wrong.

Any advice on this would be great or a point in the right direction.
Loose joint or beyond repair?

Alex.

Considering you can get a new one for virtually nothing, repair is
probably not feasible. I'd guess the signal level is too low and
muting is kicking in. That's just a guess since you didn't bother to
tell us what brand or model the radio is.

You may want to test it with a new antenna before trying to repair it.
Or test the antenna with a 'new' radio. (You can get an old radio at a
flea market for $10 or less usually.) G GregS Jan 1, 1970 0 Considering you can get a new one for virtually nothing, repair is probably not feasible.

My truck radio cost me $450, plus the$350 disk changer, plus the \$55 maintenaince
manual. Cheap? I forgot how much that part I bought cost me!

off hand it sounds like a bad solder joint or a faulty switch.
