Default volume **** problem!

I posted this in the audio/video electronics section, no one seems to be too active over there, maybe someone can help me here. Sorry. Thank you.


When I try to turn my volume down quickly, or some times not quick at all, my volume will actually go up! It's really annoying! If someone is trying to call me, and I have to turn down my volume for some other reason fast, and I turn it down, it'll shoot up even louder! Does anyone else have this problem? How can I fix it?

It's because you have 4.10's. It has something to do with the speedometer electrical signal, I don't know why it does this but it does. Nah, not really, lol but I am with matt get a nice aftermarket deck and enjoy it. If you dont want to worry about the volume issue, get some lm 2's and a off road h pipe and say screw it, you wont be able to hear anyway.

Default RE: volume **** problem!

It's just in the electronics of the **** itself. It's not a specific issue of one headunit really. You will encounter this a lot on all different kinds of *****, turn them too fast and they go the opposite direction. I don't know for sure, but I have some ideas of why exactly it happens in electronics terms, but I wont bore you with that. Bottom line is you probably aren't going to fix it unless you desolder the volume control and find another one to replace it that's higher quality and resolder that on. That or just live with it or get a new head unit. I'd go for the get a new head unit option. That was one of the first things I did to my car, got an iPod plug and all.

Default volume **** problem

Had the same issue on my 2002 GT. Without dissasembling anything just used a fine nozzel with my air compressor set about 90 psi and simply blew air all around the edge of the **** while rotating back and forth. Did not fix it at first, kept blowing air and rotating for a few minutes and then it was fixed. Must have been dust build up inside the potentiometer.

Hope this saves people some time and money.

LOL!I like listening to the exhaust.It has a Magnaflow exhaust.The sound of the exhaust was a contributing factor in my decision to purchase the car.

That works for me too.

It only happens once in a while but man oh man there is nothing like your volume going to warp 9 at 0600hrs. That's more effective than the best coffee in the world.

I'm having the same issue in my 04 GT. It seems to be even worse now that the weather is colder too. I'm thinking about trying the air compressor trick. Has anyone else tried it with good success?
