Moving or not makes no dif. Radio speakers only work when in park or neutral. The instant i select rev or dr speakers stop. Cd is the same shows it's playing, but no sound until i select neutral or park.

Makes no sense at all. Who wired up your head, speakers, etc ?

Either your head unit is fried or there is something wrong with your wiring. This happened in my buddys truck and he had to buy a new head unit.

I have a problem that is similar in nature. I noticed this morning that the OEM radio with one disk CD player + satellite radio would not play right away. I think this has happened once or twice before, however, the radio has always played flawlessly. It did rain last night, and my 08' Ranger with 64,000 miles typically does not sit under a carport. Anyway, I got in my truck, hit the power button, and on came music but after a lengthy pause like 15 seconds. I stopped less than 1/4 mile away at the gas station for a snack, and when I restarted the vehicle, even AM and FM would not comee in. The ST button (Station) was flashing. I continued driving 2.5 miles to work and intermittenly the radio would start for 15-30 sec., stop for 15 sec., and then start again. I didn't have time to look at it until this afternoon, and the same thing happened. I started the vehicle, and I hit the 'Seek' button, but the stations would not lock in. I shut off the radio for about 10 min., and then I restarted it but to no avail. I then stopped the vehicle, placed the vehicle in Park, and I used the radio tool to remove the radio. I confirmed that the wires were not loose or frayed, and I unplugged the yellow satellite wire. I then plugged the satellite wire in and slid the radio in place. That did not solve the problem nor did I see any obstruction. Also, the radio was dry, so I don't feel that condensation is a problem. If I continue to have problems, then I will replace the radio, but does anyone have any ideas in the meantime? There is no rattling or other disturbance, and all the buttons light-up and function normally. Thanks.
