Fluctuating Volume

Recommended Posts

So something is wrong with my stereo. It has now happened two times in the past few days that my stereo just magically starts bouncing the volume around. If I turn off the stereo for a second and turn it back on, it seems to stop fluctuating. Maybe electrical?

I have also noticed the beginning signs of the infamous LCD bleeding.

What do I do? Is this a sign that the stereo is about to go out? How much will it cost to replace? Can I get the replacement from a salvage vehicle possibly?

Thanks for the help!

well, it could be 1 of 100's of things with the stereo head unit, but if the LCD is bleeding, then yes it is about to go. A resistor is probably getting fried and it is causing the voltage irregularies which is affecting your sound. Your best bet is to just look for a used one if $$ is an issue, or just get an aftermarket. Probably a bit better solution, but will not look factory.

If I replace the stereo, what is the probability that the problem will not be fixed? If the stereo is replaced, am I pretty much covered?

Also, are there any aftermarket units that anyone knows of that don't look blatently aftermarket? I mean, I really don't want a big clunky aftermarket sticking out of the center stack. Is there one that still looks like it belongs in the vehicle?
