    Trans Am radio

    The radio in my t/a has been out for a while, but today it sounded like it was clicking inside. Then all day it would turn on every 5-10 minutes for 15 seconds at the most. Any idea of what I can do to fix it so it works every time without having to take it into a mechanic? Thanks for any help.

    Is only your radio acting intermittent now?

    When you say out, do you mean it completely shuts off, or your just not getting any output?

    You might want to check the harness behind it to make sure it's got a solid connection. The power wire could even been working its way loose. Another good place to check is the fuse box, making sure of all good connections there. Checking all + feeds and grounds, as there are several places that could causing this.

    Hopefully it's not your BCM, but other electronics would be out as well if it was.
