Radio question

Postby spike » Fri Jul 04, 2014 3:21 pm

My 1989 LSC has been sitting for 10 years in garage with battery disconnected and recently took out of storage hooked battery up etc. and went to turn radio on and have no sound.Ran antenna up and still nothing but when you turn radio on the screen shows CD and radio stations show up but nothing.Checked tape player and have very little sound just out of drivers door speaker.Anyone know what's going on with radio as car only has 9000 miles since new?Wondering if battery disconnected caused something in radio?

The toggle volume control radio has known issues with the type of capacitors that were used in it's manufacture. It doesn't matter if the radio was used or not, it will fail with time. I believe Paul Protos refurbishes these by replacing ALL bad caps and any other components known to fail in these units. His e-mail is (polyscroll@hotmail.com). He does excellent work with fair prices........ 8-)

The trim piece around the radio pulls out. It's held in by spring clips.

I believe the two pair of small holes at the right and left edges of the radio face are where you put in removal tools. I got some in case I came across decent looking units at the salvage yard.

Image from Walmart, where I got mine:

When you insert the tools, it releases some clips so that the radio unit comes out. I got a radio from an T-Bird and it proved to be very difficult. Since the dash was beat up badly already I pretty much yanked it out of the dash with force. Wouldn't have done that if the dash was usable.

Snap in "clip type" radios where used in the 90-92 models where as a "bolt in " design was used from 89 and back. The tools are not needed for the "bolt in" version. 8-)
