You might want to try some contact cleaner on the harness that the ribbon cable slides into, or re-seat the other end of the ribbon cable.

Lasted almost 45K miles! But it's effing acting up again. In my defense I reseated the cables but didn't trim them.

I got about 6 months out of it, now I'm back to banging the side again. It looks like I have anger issues after hitting a pothole or bump, trying to get all stereo channels working again.

I hate it when people bring up old threads, especially noobs on a forum.

I found this last night while using the search feature.
I pulled my generic non-Bose head unit and cleaned everything this morning.

The radio now works 100%.

Thank for the tip.
I was looking at an expensive replacement.
Now my stock radio working will save me some money.

Just remember, it's temporary, so start putting money away for a real fix for the radio (aftermarket replacement). If it isn't this that kills your radio, there's about three or four other major failures that are very common in these radios.

And don't worry about noobs bumping this thread... IMO, it should be sticky'd.

I have been playing with electronics stuff for around thirty years...

Instead of clipping the ribbon cable, try two or three passes over a peice of emory cloth.
(For some of you, barrow you mom's nail file.)
That is just enough to scrape off the crud and make the leads abrasive enough to clear some of the crud from the inside connection.

I have been using this tip when rebuilding arcade game boards for as long as I can remember.

Contact cleaner never works.

I am going to buy a Bose system and play with it just to See if I can make it work in my Generic35.

good info, but considering the bose is inferior, there's no reason to put it in. all you'd need is a 50w, 4-channel amp that takes balanced signals to use it in place o of the non bose unit.

I have to add; Mine cut out on a long trip yesterday.

This morning, I pulled the dash apart and applied three strips of packaging tape to the back side of the ribbon cables.
This will snug up the connection between the leads on the cable to the connector in the radio.
I applied the tape on the plastic pull tabs and down to the end of the leads. Not the entire ribbon cable.

It is back together and working again.
We will see on the next road trip.

Start to finish is under two hours if you are pressed for time.
Getting the dash apart the first time is the worst.
After the first time it is pretty easy.
