busted kt18... repairable?


was wondering if anybody opened theirs up to try to fix...

had mine for the longest time... and it started acting up... first it was the throttle... cutting off then on... sometimes cutting out at full throttle, then when you ease off, it'll go back on... then experienced glitchy steering...

thought it was the batteries, but put in fresh ones and it still happened... tried it on another car... and same thing... really can't believe that it was the cars...

did a reset (several times too)... and it still happened... good thing i had a spare kt18.... and when i used that... problem was solved on both cars...

this led me to believe it was the kt18 at fault... (had this for the longest time when the mr02 first came out)...

so was wondering if anybody experienced the same thing... and if anybody opened theirs up and tried to fix it... and what did you do to set things straight...

thanks in advance...

It doesn't seem as though anyone has. If the radio was reasonably priced to begin with, I would simply suggest replacing it. What they charged for these new was robbery although I'm sure you can still find some new old stock as it's not like stores were selling through on these.

thanks for the info... planning to open it up soon to find out if I can fix it... hopefully it'll just need some cleaning.
