Power cuts out on stereo
I have a 92yj. I had a jvc head unit in there for years and everything was fine. Then I wasn't getting sound to the speakers here and there. I figured it was the head unit going up. I bought another and installed and everything seemed fine. Now here and there the power just cuts out to the unit. It might come back on right away or in a few minutes. There really is no consistency. When I got the new stereo I got a new wire harness also and connections seems fine. Any ideas?

I would look for a wiring issue, either power wires, or speaker wires. Most head units will trip an internal circuit breaker if there is a speaker wiring short circuit.

Sounds like a bad ground. Check and make sure the connection is secure. Also make sure the radio is secure in the dash, sometimes they will slide in the metal sleeve and manipulate the wiring for a minute to fail then slide back into place and everything is normal.

Don't know how the YJ is set up but in my 03 TJ it was doing the same thing. Turned out to be the ignition cylinder. The key would back out while driving and the radio would go off. I found out I can start mine and pull the key right out. Once I figured it out I just lived with it. I just push the key back in and it comes right back on.
