CD/Radio Stopped Working - Not a fuse
I have a 2001 Rio and the radio / cd player stopped working. I thought at first it was a fuse. None inside were tripped, so I checked under the hood. Pulled some out to check, others just touched. All were fine. Even pulled the negative cable off the battery. When I turned the car back on the radio stared working again.
This has happened several times now, each time the radio seems to last a shorter period before it will not come back on again. Can't figure out exactly where/what is the solution, but it seems to be under the hood. Whethere it's resetting by removing the negative cable, a loose fuse, computer, I don't know.
Regardless, the clock always needs to be reset once it comes back on. And the radio will only come on or not when the car starts. Will not come on or go off while the car is on. At least this has been the case thus far.
No other problems exist. I'm going to have the battery and alternator tested, just to rule those out. But right now I'm at a loss.
Anyone have an alternative thought? Or better yet, a solution?
