That might be an Antenna issue. Knowing how waves work, the fact that you're constantly changing from Mono <=> Stereo through motion of your car means that antenna is broken, or something's wrong with the radio decoder. Though, other possibilities include that the reception strength on the Lancer is weak or you're not getting good reception at all.
Like 6'deep says, get the radio unit checked, meaning both the cpu for the radio and antenna.
Yeah that is a natural occurrence. I have a few stations that do that apparently and they all are close to the frequencies that FM transmitters operate at. So basically it is radio interference in your case whether by other FM Transmitters or by other radio generating apparatuses...
I have the same thing on my Lancer. Took it in 2 times. 1st time they changed my
unit. same thing. snd time they had the head honcho from Mitsubishi come out here in Los Angeles and taste drive it. said it is normal. looked at the antenna and wiring. It is normal they say. Well next up for me is file a complaint and go to arbitration. Have to keep fighting.
i spoke with an audio friend who has been doing radio equipment for 15years and he thinks iits the amp. not that its bad, but may be a little weak and have a protection mode on it. im gonna snag an amp and see if it helps.
It might be, I have a new amp in my car and only listened to my ipod and then i had to take it out because of it going into the shop to get fixed and been listening to radio without amp and its been going in and out as well. IDK how i am running the speakers and everything without one but ill have to test it out when i get my car back and listne to the radio.
Any news on this topic? My Lancer ES (Invite in Romania) does the same thing... The ST is blinking on my radio display and the signla is very bad...
No one solved it?
Also, when I switch between radio preset nr. 1 to another one (nr. 3), very often the radio displays "WAIT" untill I press the preset button again. Annoying...
So, any suggestions?
