#1: '96 JGC OEM radio repair/replace advice?

Posted on 2006-07-15 17:30:38 by bobmct

My original JGC w/175K still looks and runs very well. However, my FM tuner
portion of the stock Infinity sound system doesn't receive any longer. The
AM, CD and TAPE still work just fine. If I repeatedly press the AM/FM
button in/out/in/out (a lot) I can usually get it to work for a while.

So, my question to you guys is...

As this is not my daily driver, its my 2nd driver but I do use it on long
trips, errands, etc. what are my options here? What would it cost to
1) have the OEM repaired?
2) replaced with a used OEM?
3) replace with an aftermarket AM/FM/CD
3) purchase a used one from a junkyard and replace it myself? and actually
how difficult would it be? Once the dash face is off does the radio come
out from the front? or rear?

You guys are the EXPERTS. So what do you think?

Thanks all,

Bob

Take it apart and clean it.

Probably more than buying a new one. You could try it yourself.

ebay, but why? see later

Lots of good options at a much lower cost than OEM or sometimes
even used. Just be aware that the existing amplifier might have
to be replaced/removed. Then again with some of the new radios
you probably won't need it. www.jcwhitney.com has all you need.
Even so I'd check local sterio stores just for ideas. Who knows
you might want XM radio, DVD, MP3 with memory stick, larger speakers
some amplifiers, a new alternator, batteries, sound proofing material.... :)

a couple of screws and some connectors. not hard at all.

You really like commercial radio enough to restore FM functionality?

You could get a personal MP3 player w/FM (or just a portable FM radio)
and connect it with a cassette adapter...

Won't win you any contests but it should do the job ;-)

try going to www.car-part.com and search for a used replacement. I have had
some luck there. Always some risk with getting a used part, could also have
problems. I received a bad part recently, and the 'junk yard' quickly
refunded my money..
