What will cause a 1991 Dodge Spirit factory radio to short out even with a new power cable and a new ground possibly the antenna?
The antenna wouldn't cause it to short out, that just helps it
receive the signals to play music on the radio... How old is the
radio... if it is factory from 91 then it might of been its time to
go... i have a radio from a 90 Dodge Caravan, same as whats in your
Dodge Spirit cause they carry the same radio and it short out on
its own where the numbers and stuff wont light up but will still
play music... I took the radio out of my 92 Dodge Spirit and put it
in the van (since the trans went out in the 92 Spirit) and it works
great... it might of just went out because it was ready to go.
