Same radio issues

I seem to be having to same issues that i have noticed other people have mentioned. My speakers make the loud popping noise and the radio wont produce any sound. Now the radio doesn't turn on at all. Is there anything i can do to rectify this issue. Also i just picked it up from the dealership and they told me there was nothing wrong with my car.

There seem to be two threads on this same issue. Is this the sound you're getting?:

I have an appointment this week for my car. We'll see what happens.

Right now, I'm wondering if the issue has to do with an amplifier or pre-amplifier module because:

1) it impacts all audio controlled by the head unit (i.e. bluetooth, usb, AM/FM). Once the crackle happens, there's absolutely no audio from any other controls

2) power-cycling the car restores the audio. Note, because of the retained power feature of the radio, this requires opening the door once the key has been turned to off:

I'm just thinking here. I'm a bit worried about the out-of-warranty cost when I visit the dealer this week.

Hi jmercedes,

Have you considered a second opinion? Please let me know, along with your mileage, and I'll check some options.

Ok check this out the noise was driving me crazy I found the fuse it was under the glove box third row / third fuse up 15 amp I pulled it out so I wouldn't have to listen to the noise when I got home I watched a YouTube video on how to remove the stereo it's very simple I remove the stereo and then took the top off of the stereo there is a flat ribbon cable that goes from the stereo to the CD player I unhooked it and plugged it back in I blew the stereo out with air I blew all of the plugins out with air by blowing on them I hooked everything back up put the fuse in and everything has been working fine. It all started almost a year ago the stereo would make a loud pop and just go off I could turn the key off and back on and the stereo would be fine for a long time it started getting more frequent then eventually it started making loud noise through the speakers even with the stereo off and even with the key out of the car I hope that it was just some kind of loose connection what made me think this was when the noise would blast through my speakers as I was driving it made me so mad I could beat on my dash and it would quit hope this helps oh and by the way when you take the top off of the stereo itself watch the Edge they are very sharp I sliced my finger open you will need a Torx 10 and a Torx 20 and a small flat head screwdriver just to pray the bottom panel off to get to screws
