I was out running errands today and at first, my stock radio was working fine. When I started my car after I got back to it, I noticed the screen on my radio was blank, no sound and the tape deck was running. The tape deck gets a regular workout since that is where I run my XM through. Anyways, I tried turning the radio off, nothing. I pressed the eject button to eject the tape adapter, nothing. I pressed every button on the radio, nothing.
The tape deck continues to run when the car is off. I pulled the 15a radio fuse, and it keeps going. When I got home, I disconnected the negative battery terminal and it stopped. Whew. When I reconnected it, it the tape deck started again!!!! @$$#%@#$!!!!!
I disconnected the negative battery terminal again and have since left it disconnected for the last hour. I'm leaving for work now and will update the results when I get there, about 1 hour.
Do any of you have any ideas what could be causing this? I mean, I pulled the friggin' fuse and it kept going!!!! I'm sort of at a loss right now as to what it could be. The bright side, is maybe I have to upgrade my radio....
Thanks in advance!
