Default 2011 Ram 430N Problems

I did a search for this and came up with nothing. Hope someone can help here.

Radio is the 430N with the full alpine system.

While I was driving around Christmas time, my front speakers cut crackled a few times and cut out all together. I just turned off the radio at that point and stopped shortly there after. Once I powered down the truck and restarted it, everything worked like it was supposed to. Today while I was running errands, I heard the front speakers cut out, so I turned the stereo down (I max out at 18 or so, and am not distorting, so I know the speakers aren't blown) before turning the radio off. Ran to a few places, tried the radio again, no dice. Still not working correctly. I really like my radio and want it back!

Please help!

likely it is your main connector where the wiring plugs into the radio
i believe that there are 7 screws total holding the radio in, if you don't have the full floor console, just a couple more if you do have that console

I went through and took everything apart this morning. Checked the connections to the radio and everything seemed solid. Got the fob and turned the radio in and all of the speakers are working now. Any suggestions?

I was running the defrost pretty much the whole time I had the truck out yesterday due to the crap weather we were having. Could the receiver overheat or is my best bet to take it to the speakership and tell them to make it right.

If your still within the 3 year factory warranty period, they may fix it for free
best way is to just tell them the symptoms, do not make any suggestions & always try to smile, no matter what you may think about the dummy that you are speaking with

My truck was built in 1 of 11, so it may have literally JUST come out of warranty. I am going to see if the will replace it under warranty. Will just have to see what happens. I now know it isn't a heat issue. Started cutting out when I went to the store yesterday afternoon. When I got home, I peeled off the upper dash cover and the metal case for the receiver was stone cold. So now we are back to a wiring or receiver issue!
