Re: Radio has very little life

Check to make sure the "always-on" power is still there.
There should be 12 volt supply even with the key off.

My F150 (company truck) radio was acting all weird also. It was pretty much hell with the radio stuck on AM talk. I thought about the portable CD player I have had for years with cassette attachment so I needed to know if the cassette worked. I knew where the only tape in the shop was, a 10 year old Halloween sound effect tapes. Stuck in the tape and there was my salvation, the tape player worked. I hit eject, then I hit eject again, instead of AM talk I was now stuck with cheap, badly done Halloween sound effects. Someone reminded me of the continuous power part of the radio, the power that hold the memory. The fuse in the dash panel was good but the fuse in the power distribution panel under the hood was blown. Replaced the fuse and the radio was still broke.
