Ok, I have a problem with my stereo that has been going on for awhile now. Basically, it is a third-party Sony unit that was installed by a guy at a Pawn Shop.
Anyway, when I crank the car up, I get the display for about 30 seconds and then the stereo turns completely off. Although it will occasionally stay on as long as the runs, but won't come back on if I turn the car off. Like it did today when my dad replaced the back tail-light. When I cranked it up to test the turn signal, the stereo turned on and stayed on until I turned the car off. But when I cranked it up again to leave, the stereo flashed the display then turned off as usual.
He thinks it might be a short or a loose wire, but is afraid to lift up the dashboard to fix it since the passenger-side airbag might accidentally go off.
Is there another way to handle this or do I need to take it to a professional?
have the same problem?
