    I am willing to do a write up on fixing the 89 style radio box. I have read that it is a capacitor problem but do not know which is the correct part. Anyone know which it is from the pictures? P1030615.JPG P1030619.JPG

    I'm no help on the board specifics. Just a thought though... IMO if you're going to the trouble of replacing any capacitors in a 20+ year old piece of equipment, I would do them all. Chances are there's a few of them getting tired by this point. Regardless this is a cool project and I'd be interested to see the write up. One of my dad's old TBI trucks had this issue and he just dealt with it until he traded it in on the next one.

    Like @df2x4 said, just replace all of the electrolytic capacitors, they don't age well.

    Go for a later amp section too. Seems every year was different, later years are streamlined. The EQ one I pulled for my '89 from an '89 has just one board. This one looks to have multiple boards. Don't know if any years were better than others.

    Looks like my antenna isn't seated all the way then, according to the pic.
