4.7
Hello all. I have a 2013 1500 4.7. I bought it about a year ago and have come across an issue that I have been unable to solve. When I bought the truck the OEM radio did not work. I assumed it was a bad radio and bought a cheap replacement from Crutchfield. That worked well until driving one day and the radio quit along with the wipers coming on randomly. I had to pull the fuse for the radio in order to get it to come back on. Again, I made an assumption and believed it to be the TIPM. I replaced the TIPM and thought that it had fixed the problem as it did not come back for over 5 months until yesterday when the radio again died. I pulled the fuse again, but first checked power and the fuse was getting a full 12 volts. Reinstalling the fuse brought the radio back to life. What I don't understand is what am I resetting by pulling the fuse? Has anyone else come across this issue before?

Check under the fuse box for rust, could be bad contacts.
