Stereo scans endlessly

Asked by May 03, 2016 at 11:04 PM about the 2004 Kia Amanti Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 Kia amanti has the Infiniti 6 disc
stereo. It worked awesome but over winter
it would scan until the car got warmed up.
Now it's summer and it scans non stop. If I
continue to hold the power button in when
I turn it on it locks on one station, but
scans as soon as I let go. Won't load or
unload CDs.  What could it be other than a
done for stereo? Fuse I hope?!

perhaps the ground of the unit has some corrosion...you might check the ground spots on the dash..and perhaps the battery has corrosion...you might just check the Black cable to the engine block and the one that goes to the chassis/fender~ need 12.5 volts on a reasonably NEW battery as they stop accepting a charge after 10 years and reduced voltage may cause stereo problems...yep...a New battery and possibly NEW cables will be spot on~
