#2 of 60 Radio problem
Mar 09, 2005 (11:49 am)
I am having an intermittent problem with the radio. When I first start the car in the morning the radio works fine! However once I turn the car off and restart it the radio no longer works and the lights on the radio blinks on and off. Any suggestions? It is hard to ride in a fine car without any music in the background!

We are having the exact same issue with our 2001 Sebring lxi. Have you tried talking to Chrysler yet about it? We have heard that this is a known issue, so perhaps we could get them to replace it.

I am having the same problem. Start the car in the morning and the radio works fine. Later in the day when I drive home, the radio just LED just flashes and it doesn't work. Sometimes it will intermittently come back on while driving. One time I hit the turn signal and the radio went off again and just kept flashing. Some type of electrical problem. Can anyone offer some help? hlo, did you get your problem resolved yet? Help
#5 of 60 Radio Flashes Blinks with No Sound Intermittently

I am having a problem with my stereo / radio. I start the car in the morning and the radio works fine. Later in the day when I drive home, the radio LED just flashes and it doesn't work - no sound. Sometimes it will intermittently come back on while driving. One time I hit the turn signal and the radio went off again and just kept flashing. Some type of electrical / power problem. Can anyone offer some help? Seems if the car is cold in the garage things are fine, but if its in the sun all day and really hot I see the problem more frequently. Help!!

I'm having the same problem. If the car is cold, or first thing in the morning -- radio works fine. After it has sat in the sun awhile - radio just blinks at me. I've searched the internet and have found others with the same problem; however, to date, no fix. Hopefully, someone will come forward to help us!

I've still not figured it out or heard of the possible solution yet. Would like to get a little more knowledge before I take it to the dealer and they simply replace anything and everything and charge an arm and a leg. If anyone has a clue please post to the board. Very frustrating driving a convertible with no music/radio/CD!

I have the identical problem. A service guy said it might be a cold solder problem. In Canada, to exchange the radio costs $ 330.00. I think it might be prudent to buy an after market system.

If it is any consolation I am having the same exact problem with my 01 Sebring LXI. Since the temperature is now about 70 degrees each morning the radio does not work at all. If you hear of a solution, please let me know. I am going to check the Dodge Stratus sites, I believe that they have the same radio. Good luck!

This has recently happened to me. I called the dealership and told them that in the morning when the car was cool the radio worked fine. After sitting out in the sun all day or even for a few minutes it does not work. The dealer responded that they did not know what the issue was. They further stated that I should go to Best Buy and get a new stereo as it would be cheaper than having them repair it. I went to Best Buy, no replacement stereo that would work with the CD changer. They at least gave me an explanation: The heat makes the mother board expand and will not allow the stereo to go on in the expanded state. When it cools down it will work again. My issue is why did this take 3.5 years for this to begin. I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. It heats up whether the top is up or down. I am also looking for HELP!!!!
