New Sony radio stops working after one year
\015 1997 grand cherokee: Sony radio installed by circuit city. worked for last year. Went out recently. Pulled dash apart, appeared yellow wire had a surge. depending on how harness was arranged radio would/would not work. Rewired hard style. No power to radio? Short?\015
By "hard style" you mean that you ran a direct hot wire to radio (from battery or other known good power source)? if that does not work, did you ground radio case? If it does not work that way, either there is a problem where the radio's harness enters the unit, or there is a loose connection inside it!
