Radio will turn off after hitting bump Just changed the starter on our 1996 Ford Taurus. Afterwards our radio will work sometimes. It will turn off if you hit a bump and then back on if you hit another one but will be on the same channel 101.9 (not a working channel) The dash lights will do this at night but not as often. What is wrong?

Believe it or not this problem can be caused by the neutral safety switch being defective under the hood on the transmission, There also was a recall for the light problem. Contact your local Ford dealers service dept for details on this recall.
