Default 2007- Radio silent when in gear...

Hi all,

Jumped in my Ranger to drive home from work to find that the radio will play perfectly fine in park and neutral, but the second you put the car in gear (R,D,1,2) the radio will go silent. The clock will still be on, nothing changes or flickers. If you move the stick from Drive to Neutral, you will hear the radio like normal. Then when you put it back in Drive, dead silence. Any ideas on whether this is fuse related, wiring in the steering column...? Any direction would be really helpful.

Thanks,
Tom

Many cars and trucks have a system in where when you accelerate the volume of the stereo will increase automatically... in essence the stereo has wiring to the transmission to regulate the volume... if your stereo has this option you may want to try turning it off...

My truck had the same issue. It had been some hard heavy rain about 2 days prior and I got told by some friends that Ford started wiring random things into a port on the tranny. Try lifting it and checking a ll ports around your tranny
