no radio 2000 seville sts


Recommended Posts

Radio just decided not to turn on at initial startup and when restarting it displayed the channel for about 5 seconds and went out but never made a sound and the display just shows the clock only. Anyone have a direction to go in?

maybe something to do with the power knob? Maybe exercise it a little? My radio in my 99 STS and 00 DTS always did weird things when it got really cold. Weird sound coming from the speakers like bad distortion or display looked wierd sometimes.

Out of desperation and being tired of talking to myself I tried turning off the engine with the radio button pushed in and held it in while restarting the engine and the radio turned on and to the original station. Thank God, I was going man on the long trips.

Well done!! Sounds like you unearthed an "undocumented feature".

What year/model Cadillac do you drive??

The station presets were maintained because the radio has two power leads. One runs through the ignition switch and one doesn't. The unswitched lead keeps a constant flow of power to maintain the clock and station presets.

That leads me to believe it's an issue with the power switch. If it's just a buildup of dirt and corrosion, you may be able to fix--or at least somewhat alleviate--the problem by pulling off the knob and spraying some contact cleaner on the shaft while you push the shaft in and out.
