Check the GROUND to the unit. Could have jostled loose or is in the process of jiggin' loose- also be sure your FM antenna is firmly plugged into the back.

radio is toast, ebay time or install a aftermarket radio of you choice

The engine was on. I was actually driving. My husband will hopefully take off the dash this weekend and look and check the wires. My check engine light was on and after having an O2 sensor replaced and the transmission taken out to be checked it turns out some type of rodent had chewed on the main wires and they had to be repaired. When they were repaired the radio worked upon asking I found out that when those wires were repaired that once the wire was jiggled the radio started working which leads me to thing that either a wire was chewed and sometimes they connect and I get the radio to work.
