The problem might be the wires that plug into the back of the unit - or it
might be an internal problem. Removing the unit from the dash and making
sure everything is plugged in well is a good idea - also check the
continuity between the speakers and the plugs. If the problem is in the
head unit itself, you might consider getting one from eBay or
www.car-part.com instead of fixing it - unless you're emotionally attached
to this one, you can get mid-80's Audi radios for cheap, considering how
many of the cars were out there before the UA fiasco really took hold.
I repaired one of the (Canadian version - push button volume with a remote
control) radios using parts from a couple of inoperable ones I have in my
parts bin - one had a busted display, one had a 2 position volume (full or
off) and one had a busted security chip. The "Frankenradio" was created
using plug-in components from the other radios - forget about fixing
circuits. I got the parts radios for about $10 to $20 each.
1987 Audi 5kTQ - radio fixed, still lost some hearing.
1980 Audi 5k - radio to be re-installed
1962 and '64 Auto Union DKW Junior deLuxes - AM tube radio singing away in

thanks for responding..my problem is removing the unit from the dash
to get a good look at it. I removed the side panels but could find
what was holding the damn thing in. That's why I was looking for a
manual that could tell me. I think the problem is in the unit itself.
I have a cassette adapter which I hook my mp3 player thru the
speakers, it works w/o a hitch, but when I eject it and just play the
radio I get the cut outs ... very annoying ...
