Radio quit working on my 07 zx3 help needed

Hi there!! I had a Sony radio on my focus, but it started to turn on and off randomly so I thought that I could be the radio, then it just went off. I thought that it was the radio so I popped in the original and that didn't turn on either. I checked the fuses inside and they look find. Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks

Did you check both the in-radio fuse, and the fuse in the Focus fuse block? You need to check continuity of each fuse, rather than just eyeballing them. If you did all of that, and all the fuses are good, you probably have a loose/broken ground wire. Good luck.

Need to check it because a couple of minutes it just started working, then with a bump turned off and with another bump back on.

That is a grounding issue IMO
