An Air-Cooled Fan, Too!
About a year or so ago, I installed something called the Scan Gauge II in the OBD II port of my '03 Turbo S. Sometime after the install, the AM portion of the Monsoon receiver started suddendly cutting out, then, after a while, going completely out for a day or so. This went on for a bout 3 wks. or a month. So, I de-installed the Scan Gauge and the AM was okay for a while, but then the more distant Seattle AM stations, that used to come in loud and clear, gradually started becoming weaker and weaker with more static interference so that I can hardly hear them now. The FM part has always worked fine, and still does, even when the scan gauge was installed. I installed the Scan Gauge in my '03 Ford Ranger P/U where it has not caused any AM or FM interference whatsoever with that Ford factory deck and receiver. Anyone ever heard of this happening before? Will I now have to get a new after-market deck/receiver installed or do you think the AM portion of this VW Monsoon deck can be repaired?
