Stereo sound cuts out until I hit it Sign In

Hi, It's my first time on the forum. I just have the stock system and all of a sudden the sound will cut out. It's still running, just no sound coming out. I jokingly hit it and it came back on. I've been doing this for about a month now :( Anyways, I've noticed that sometimes it seems as though the right speaker cuts off and all the sound pans to the left right befor cutting off completely (actually a pretty disorienting feeling). But if it's something wrong with that speaker or the wiring, I don't know why it comes back on when I hit the head unit.

Thanks a lot

Ah the "hammer test".... A great diagnostic strategy.....lol

That is usually the sign of an internal failure.....

You could remove the deck and double check the wiring to be sure, but if the deck is securely mounted,,,, you would have to be hitting it pretty dang hard to be effecting the external wiring.....

it sounds to me like you have bad solder connections inside the radio. do you have small children? if so there is also the probability that there may be coins or some other metallic foreign object inside the radio.
