press clutch=radio turns off

Hello, at first I thought the radio the previous owner gave me was not working, but after i bought another I realized it had to do with my car. Whenever i push the clutch down and shift gears the radio will go off and turn on again, what could this be?

Faulty wire getting pinched by something else. Would be my best guess.

it temporarily mutes the radio so you can hear whether you're grinding the gears or not

Just look up where your clutch pivot points are. Probably something grounding out coming from the fuse block

I'm new
