Default Radio issues in 2006 Touring Edition

Hi everyone,

This is my first post here. I'm having an issue with my radio in my Cruiser. My radio will be playing, then I'll here a popping noise and the radio will go off and on and it sounds like the cd player is trying to eject a cd. There is no cd in the player. It will keep doing that and I have to wait for it to stay on before I can turn the radio off.

Then, last night I had the radio on when I shut the car off, and when I went back out to move the car about an hour later, the radio would not come on at all. It eventually did turn on and started its popping noise.

I did not notice anything else happening with any display on the dash, it only seems to be the radio.

Hopefully it is just an issue with the radio and I can replace it with a new radio with a navigation system like I have been wanting to do for a while.

Thanks if advance for any help.

It may be in the wiring harness in the steering column. Try wiggling the tilt up and down when it does that and see if there's any effect.

Well, I tried the steering column tilt and jiggled it and I thought it took care of it. The radio played for a lot longer before it starting popping and turning on and off.

I did notice that when the radio shuts off, all the lights on the radio go out, but the radio station call letters stays lit on the dash under the direction
and temp.

I put a zip tie around the plug on mine (in the steering column) and pulled it as tight as I could. It fixed my radio and I never had a problem with it again. IDK remember which color wire goes from the radio to that plug as I suffer from short term memory loss due to two brain surgeries. I'm sure someone here can tell you what color wire it is, so you can try this if you want to. I THINK it was pink with a green stripe, but am not sure.
