RE: E320 Radio goes on and off on its own: Help!
I too bought a prime condition 1994 e320 ( mine is a cabriolet)with 75000 original miles. I have come to realize it is a 11 year old vehicle in need of repairs. A new head gasket, wiring harness, water pump, 2 tires , front brake pads and calipers,and today I just finished a new top with new glass, are a few of the upgrades(some necessary and some just to make it right)..did i mention new motor mounts ... . This brings us to the radio... it is the original cassette with 6 disc cd player .. everything works , but not well.. When the car hits a bump in the road the cd player quits ..silence ...for several seconds... and then comes back on sans the right side of the stereo system. It only resets if I restart the car, although the car radio stereo will still operate..but the sound is still only 40% of what my 2004 Ford Expedition puts out. The speakers have some static and distortion when punched up just a bit... I would recommend a new sound system, which I intend to do after I replace my peeling chrome after market wheels...
