Radio Issues, what is going on?

Asked by Aug 13, 2017 at 08:02 PM about the 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am having trouble with the radio on my Chrysler 03 ptcruiser. When listening
to FM radio, it randomly cuts in and out or stops completely until I wiggle the
steering wheel up and down or turn it hard to the right or left. It does not lose
power; the clock still shows and I am able to listen to AM and play a CD without
any problems.

Loose connection from radio. Either power wire is loose behind radio or ground wire behind radio. But if you have radio controls on steering wheel then that would effect radio
