Volumen Control Knob Does Not Work...

Have a 2006 Civic LX with stock stereo and single in-dash cd player. About a week ago, the volume **** stopped working. It turns, but the volume does not change or if it does, it jumps by a few levels at a time. Turning it up, also turns the volume down. Very odd. It fixed itself for a day, then started acting up again. I pulled out the **** and tried some compressed air to clean out anything hta tmay have been there, but the problem hasn't gone away.

Anybody have any ideas on how to fix this? I would hate to have to get a brand new radio. The car only has 43k miles on it too. WTF?

Re: Volumen Control Knob Does Not Work...

are you still under the factory warranty? i checked ebay and most are $100 or less. dont know what yours looks like tho. could also try to clean the electrical parts when you have it removed and opened up.

They are so cheap they are not worth fixing. Bitch to Honda maybe they will help you fix it. Its always worth a shot.

Re: Volumen Control Knob Does Not Work...

It's already out of warranty. I went there last week so they can fix my airbag light which they are doing out of warranty already. I mentioned the volume **** and he said I would probably need a new radio. I'll swing by and try bitching to him again. If that does not work, i'll try pulling the fuse.

It works intermittently, so it won't work for 4 days, then work for 1 day. I'll try pulling the fuse and see what happens. Do i need the code when I do that?

Re: Volumen Control Knob Does Not Work...

To close the loop, I removed pulled out the plastic piece of the ****, sprayed the area with compressed air to get rid of any dust that might be in there then gave it a little bit of WD40. Volume **** works like new again. My guess is some dust or dirt got in the way and either the air or the WD40 cleaned it up so the rotary **** is making a proper connection again.
