Does anyone know why my radio keeps flickering on and off? It only happens once in a while but when it does it won't stop doing it!

bad connection somewhere. could be corrosion as well. turn it on and off at least 10 times and than see. batt is impossible, your car would not start with a batt that weak

I might add, as the ignition switch wears - particularly if you have a tonnage of keys and stuff on your keyring, the key can either be pulled out far enough, or from road bumps and such become intermittent as you describe - on my TJ, the only thing affected is the radio and display on it goes out - and perhaps comes back on by itself, but usually one mst simply push the key in all the way. I find since the lock is warn out to this degree, it is imperative I push the key in all the way ad I as well since I must carry a bunch of keys, I added a quick disconnect on my keyring with ONLY the Jeep key on it. After doing so, the only way to replicate it is to pull out on the key while the radio (and/or) truck is operating.

I would be shocked (no pun intended) to think that if your battery cable/connections were dirty that you would not be having far greater issues with the truck than the radio... That is of course unless you are using an aftermarket stereo and have just jammed wires in the battery terminals or some such ill advised thing...
