Q: Radio sound fading

asked by on

My sound system fades out on any channel, for a few seconds at a time. It happens on the CD player too. What do you think is causing this?

Had the same exact issue on my Toyota and it turned out to be an internal radio problem. I replaced the radio with another one and it fixed the problem. If you need further assistance with this, have a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, inspect your car’s radio issue and make the necessary repairs for you.
