the ground connection from negative to chassis is weak, from chassis to engine is weak, or from dashboard to chassis is weak....please make sure that these things are corrosion free---you'll find that after removing the corrosion everything will come back to normal-

Hello, I own a 2000 PT Cruiser exhibiting the same problem you describe. The problem is not the radio at all, it is your ignition key cylinder that you use to start your vehicle with. Next time your radio acts up, all you have to do to prove that the ignition switch cylinder is the problem, simply push the key into the cylinder, without turning the key; your radio light should come back on. I hope this helps you. God luck!
