Default Ignition Key and Radio

Coming back from taking pictures of my '04 Dream Cruiser today the radio quit. At first I thought I may have blown a fuse and it was getting no power, no sound or display.

When I got home and went to shut the car off, as I grabbed the key the radio display came on and off a few times. I tapped the key a few times and the display would show for a second then back off. I turned off the ignition and moved the steering wheel to different positions then turned the key to on at each stop, near the top of it's travel range the display came on and stayed on, but, no sound. . . senior moment. . . I turned up the volume and all was right again.

So, what am I dealing with? Wires, ground, ignition switch? Thoughts!

Thanks, Rick! That seems to be the problem I'm having. I'll check out the ground first.

It was your own fault and that's what you get for getting your PT recently detailed

Some other part of your PT is now feeling neglected and wants some attention, too
