If your battery cable is not making solid contact with the battery, or if the cable has a break in it, under the insulation, this can happen. Another possible problem is your battery terminal/post could be stripped. You will notice the radio turn off when other larger things are drawing more current than you alternator can provide. Ex. rolling up windows while a/c is on high
