Oh great and mighty radio problem trouble shooters. I have a 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan (yeah, it's a minivan!... well my wife's baby anyway!) with factory components.
The problem: I start the car, back out of the driveway and take off down the road not 100ft and the radio shuts off. I push the power button in and then push it to turn it back on and comes back on! I drive a little ways and it shuts off again. With the car off and the key turned back the radio works fine, but it does shut off as I increase the volume above "30." My kids still don't know all the lyrics to the Wiggles songs! I think they think they are a rap group!! The radio seems to stay on longer with the volume lower("13-17" range).
What I know: As I accelerate, that is when it tends to shut off the most frequently. Sometimes it will shut off as I approach a stoplight too. I have checked all the fuses I know of and everything seems to be fine. I have taken the unit out and looked for obvious damage to wires, connections etc. Nothing! I am at a loss and am casting a line out to anyone who has an idea or something I can look at before my wife forces my hand to take it in to get fixed. Any ideas?????
