I have bought a 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Sedan 4 door car. Recently the radio has started giving problems. Specifically, whenever I change the volume by turning the knob, the radio stops playing... and then all of a sudden after about a minute, starts playing again.

Please anyone who knows what is happenning and how can the problem be fixed?

  • It sounds as though there is a problem with the volume rheostat, but that would be very difficult to diagnose without tearing the stereo apart. If it's an electronic problem (no real knob rheostat), sounds like there is a replacement issue ... as in, it's just going to need replaced (ie: no way to cure it). Apr 11, 2015 at 14:45

Had a similar issue with a different car, the issue with mine was a blown capacitor on my headunit, it turned off, and then randomly on. If you're not an electrician / technically minded then easiest route would be to just buy a second hand part and replace it.
