My 2003 F150 Super Crew radio/CD keeps cutting in and out.

Customer Question
My 2003 F150 Super...

My 2003 F150 Super Crew radio/CD keeps cutting in and out. All the fuses labeled audio or radio are good I've pulled the radio and checed

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I thought it was the on off volume switch so I purchased an after market audio system and have the same problem the power comes and goes. could it be one of the relays

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not sure at this point

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.

9 dollars, 2 hours of my time, and I drove away. Your diagnosis was right on the mark. Thank you so much.
