Asked by May 31, 2011 at 08:13 PM about the Nissan Altima

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've had my car for about 15 months and I stared having trouble with my radio. The numbers for the radio stations and clock first stared getting all blotchy, and now when i turn on my car or press a button to change a station it either goes off or doesn't turn up. The radio is on and it works I can change the station, but I cannot see what station it is or the time. I bought the car new. And when I last took it to the dealer to get the oil changed i asked to check the radio and described the problem. They said the radio was working fine. It did for a while and now its pretty much doing it all the time. What do I do, go back to the dealer to get the problem fixed or just get a new radio?

the car is still under the bumper to bumper warranty so bring it to the dealer and it should be fixed for free. if you want to get a new radio dont get an OE radio, go aftermarket with Alpine, their year-2 old models generally go for around 200 for the bsic head unit, if you want nav and the extras it would be more along the lines of 500-1000. for a complete system i would recomend JL Audio, they are considered to be the best speaker manufacturer at this point in time

How do i get my radio to work
