All electrical systems appear to be working fine with key on, except radio. I put ignition in start position and no response. Wait an hour or so and it starts right up. Happens on occasionally, driving me nuts. any ideas?

I would recommend looking at your alternator or your battery connections if that does not work try looking at the electrical wiring. if any of that doesent work send me a message.

Thank you so much. I found the problem, a faulty ignition switch. Your response was my first response, the battery connections, I should have included that in my message. So pleased for the quick response, and caring folks of this forum. Again, thank you.
