Dizzy Stereo plays when it wants.

My stereo in my ion 2 works when it wants too. The Stereo will be on at all times and say its playing but it's not. Then some days the radio will be blasting when i turn the car on. It's not my amplifier because my car doesn't have on in the rear deck. And i tried an aftermarket stereo. Not the fuses either. Any idea on what i should check next? i'm tired of driving with no music... Thank you!!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2007 ION-2 Quad Coupe
Default Re: Stereo plays when it wants.

I'm thinking the radio is going into protect mode due to a short in one of the speaker circuits. The factory radio has a protect mode, but doesn't display any notification to inform you when it has entered protect mode. It will work fine aside from no sound. Aftermarket radios usually, but not always, display a message to inform the user that it has entered protect mode.

An educated guess would be that the short is in one of the front door jambs since it seems to be intermittent. You just need to figure out where the short is and fix it.
