When I changed the battery in my 2002 Dodge Intrepid; the radio now has a

great just before the battery change then immediately after it didn't.

i would check your ground cable make sure you hooked up all the wires to the battery

I found the answer to my problem and THE FIX IS ... replaced the amp and my radio is good again. I wish someone would have told me this before I bought a new radio for nothing. Oh and if you ever have to unhook your battery for any reason FIRST pull the fuse for the amp... Located in the fuse panel left driver side.
