Radio Shuts Off While Driving

Ok guys, its been awhile since I have been on here. So my radio went out and now it only comes on when my foot is on the brake and im going from cruising speed to stopping and it only stays on from about 20mph to 10mph. Any ideas??

Re: Radio Shuts Off While Driving

Only thing I can think of is somethings up with the wiring. I haven't had this issue before.

Re: Radio Shuts Off While Driving

I've never heard of such a thing! I think I would cut the wires and run them to a different batt/ignition source and call it a day before even trying to figure that one out.

Re: Radio Shuts Off While Driving

I would remove the radio and check first if all connectors are inserted well.

Re: Radio Shuts Off While Driving

Mine just did something similar. As I was driving, I lost all power to radio and dash but the Jeep still ran. After about 5 seconds of me going
"Oh Sh!t " I had power come back up and everything was fine.

Any ideas?

This seems to be a problem with a connector or wire. Check if the connectors on the Junction Block are fixed well. Also have a look at the connections in the Power Distribution center under the hood.

You either have a bad earth, a bad connection coming off the ignition somewhere or it a speaker wiring earthing out somewhere.

My battery had a huge crack in it. Replaced with a new battery and everything is fine.
