Hello, does the popping only happen if you have an external device attached by cord or bluetooth?

In other words, does the radio sound work without any popping noises?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No the popping happens when car is off or on. My issue is that the sound goes out . When there is no sound I can't talk on phone through the system blinker sound does not work. Some times it out for a few minutes or a few hours and the dealership says they can't find anything wrong

Sorry for the late reply, I though I had an answer for you, but it turns out the problem is a new one to me. I am going to send this back out on the board for someone else to answer.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The issues is definitely related to the amp. Sound is being lost because the amplifier isn't producing it, whether the issue is with the amp itself or a loss of power or ground to it.

The first thing that will need to be done is check for fault codes and from there it will take some testing at the time the problem is happening to know exactly what is going on. It's possible that the amp is losing a power or ground feed and they would need to be tested at the time the problem is happening, but odds are the problem is in the amp itself.
