why does my radio go off when i turn the key off but if you dont turn the radio knob to the off position it will drain the battery
97 dodge ram factory radio am fm cassette after key is turned off if you listen when u turn the radio off it makes a popping sound in the speakers and the rear speakers dont work at all
Check for a couple of wires that have rubbed together. Sounds like a new path to ground has been created when the radio switch is closed. This could be in the radio itself due to a bad circuit board component or a speaker wire rubbing through a power wire somewhere in the body. I would check where the wires go between the body and doors first. Good Luck!
