This is what I love about these cars...they all have the same problems! I'm
going with Phil on his diagnoses of the modulator being bad. I have the
same problem on my car and have all but given up on the CD player.
Sometimes you can eek a little more time out of the system by changing the
modulator "broadcast" frequency (ie 88.3 to 88.7 I think?), but eventually
the whole thing just goes t.u.
I'm wondering if there is a replacement unit that can be put in there
instead of the factory ones. It would seem that this is a universal part
with the only problems being make sure the connectors mate up. I thought
you used to be able to get universals like that from Cruthfield, but it's
been a long time since I was a high school kid mesmerized by stereo gear.
How do the wire runs work to and from the modulator? Obviously one side
attaches to the antenae input on the head unit, but does the other side run
all the way back to the CD player? If not, are the inputs on the modulator

2. When I attempt to listen to a CD, it will begin to play for anywhere
from 5-30 seconds before the music is replaced by static. Just had my
radio head unit overhauled by Brett Seamens (thanks to a lister's
suggestion), but apparently that wasn't my problem. Does anyone
recognize this symptom?
