Quick radio question - '97 SW

Greetings all,

I have a '97 SW with a stock radio that is close to giving up the ghost - I think. Sometimes no sound comes out the speakers. There is always both switched and unswitched power to the radio (i.e. the anti-theft LED is always flashing when it's off, and the display is always lit up when it's on) so I don't think it's a power or ground issue. I've cleaned all the contacts, etc. with no effect on this intermittent problem. I think it's time to replace it.

Before I do, I want to know if there is a separate amp hiding somewhere. Did the stock radio come with a separate amp? Where can I find it?

TIA,

Spalding

In my '97 SW, my front speakers quit working. Turned out to be that the wires inside the rubber tubes front the frame to the door, had broken from simply opening & closing the doors. A quick splice repair fixed the issue.
