light it on fire, we have replaced 4 alternators on ours plus tsb repairs , replaced wires and it has been nothing but trouble

take it to your ford dealer,have the computer reflashed,45 min,$58.00.

to previous poster,yes it will,my sister has a blazer every time she pushed the break peddle her radio would go off act weired,even replaced the radio,nothing we tried worked,had a reflash done on computer,fixed it,that was over a year ago,no problems still.

who mentioned onstar,hers is a 95 so it dont have it.ok vicious1856,best thing to do as for the radio is take it to a indepent radio dealer,they can fix your radio problem.
