Need help please, Stereo turns off and on!!

Just a quick Intermittent one!!

My stereo turns itself off and on every so often...

Normally only happens when I indicate but not all the time...

Any help gratefully received...

by indicate do you mean use the blinkers, check and clean all youre ground connections and check alternator output with a meter should be over 13 volts with engine running and over 12 at the battery not running

Wow that was quick....

So the current draw from the blinkers trips the stereo out?

I will check output when I get home....

Many thanks
Alex

Re: Need help please, Stereo turns off and on!!

it certanly could if youre not getting good connections its just a guess on my part but i had a cherokee that if you turned up the volume real loud it would cut off

i have no idea how the belts are routed and if its even possible for it to get loose but might as well check that too

While looking behind dash I found part of a hands free kit that the previous owner left behind... Trouble is they spliced into the ignition wires.

Taken it all out now and so far no issues... Apart from the REC does not dim when I turn the lights on....

System reset!!
