The victim is a Grand Prix 754.  PnP find from last year, installed, decoded 
and playing for seven months.  A few months ago, change of seasons…. the 
speakers would just screech, blocking any good sounds.  It would come and go, 
but seemed most coincident with cool damp days.  Would squeal for a day, then 
make good radio noises for a week or more.  Now the banshees have taken up 

I pulled the becker out and checked to see if it was speakers or wires.  Pulled 
the plugs out and no noise.  Put them back, it is noise.  Move it around and 
still bleats.  I swapped out other speakers, still plugged into car power, 
still makes the shrill retort.    Maybe the trouble is from the battery.  Bench 
test using test leads and speakers, and no better.

I guess it wants to visit NJ.  I would rather find a good one from PnP.
