Why does my 2011 Ford Ranger Sport's factory stereo stop working when the weather is hot?

Asked by May 24, 2017 at 08:24 PM about the 2011 Ford Explorer

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Only when the weather is hot do I have this problem.     The stereo stops
working but the speakers cut in and out when I hit bumps in the road.  Also,
connected to the problem is that sometimes when I roll the window up the
stereo stops working too. In the morning it works fine but once the temp goes
up it stops.  Any clues?
