Question about 2005 Mazda Tribute

Open Question

Stereo control knob not working properly.

There are two control knobs on the stereo in this vehicle. The left if pressed, turns on the stereo. If it is turned, it controls the stereo volume. The right control knob if turned controls the tuning for the radio. If it is pushed the stereo display should change to the settings for treble, bass, fade, balance, etc. However when the left knob is pressed it doesn't do anything at all. So, I wondering want the problem is and how I can fix it or do I have to take it in to the dealership for repair. If so how much would the repair bill be. My 2005 Mazda tribute has 99,000 km and I think it has basic warranty until 100,000 here in Canada but am not sure.

SOURCE: how do I remove the factory cd/radio from 2001

There are two 3/8 inch wide black trim pieces on either side of the radio - look at the sides of the radio and you'll see them. Carefully pry them off and you will see the holes.

SOURCE: My '04 Mazda rx-8 center console not illuminating.

Believe it or not this is a very simple problem to solve. The face plate for the center control unit has small black plastic studs with female threaded inserts pressed in them that the radio hed unit is screwed into tho hold the entire unit together. My daughters 04' RX8 display was going on and off when she would hit a bump. I followed instructions of you tube video titled DIY:OEM Radio removal first gen RX8 6mt. It is very detailed and step by step. When you get to the last step which is pulling out the complete unit be careful as this is where I am sure you will find what I did, The face plate will be loose on 1 side or both. On Mine it just was one side and I almost broke the black molded plastic studs on the back of the face unit on the other side. You will see the screws with the inserts still screwed on to them where they have pulled loose from the black studs. I used epoxy to reseat them into the studs, reassembled the unit and reinstalled. I have had no other problems.

The volume on the radio is staticky when turning the volume up or down. How can I fix it myself? It is a 1960 Magnavox stereo console.


Yes. Get a can of tuner cleaner. Remove the knob and with the stereo off spray the cleaner down the shaft. Rotate the control a number of times. Replace the knob, turn the unit on and check it. Most of the time that'll do it.

How do you remove radio, from my 2001 dodge neon, that just went dead, for no reason. I replaced the fuse on the side of dash board. Still nothing.


Safety Precautions
  • Before removing the stereo or any other electrical component, it is vital that you first disconnect the grounding cable from the Neon's battery. The grounding cable connects the battery to the frame or chassis of the vehicle.

    Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to loosen the grounding cable's camp from the negative battery lead. Make sure to rest the clamp away from the negative lead post until the removal is complete.
  • Remove the Dash Trim Panel
  • The dash trim panel that surrounds the Neon stereo needs to be removed to access the stereo. The panel contains, but is not connected to, the climate control knobs on the dashboard.

    Grab the panel at the bottom corners and pry it from the dash. You will likely be able to remove the panel without the assistance of a trim pry tool, but if you are having difficulty removing the panel by hand, wrap a thin cloth around a trim panel removal tool or flat head screwdriver to remove the panel.

    Once the lower edge of the panel is relieved from the panel, you can work your hands (or flat pry tool) around the perimeter to separate the remaining edges.

    Since the panel is not connected to the climate control knobs, you will not need to disconnect the wiring to the knobs. The panel, once free, can be set aside until you replace the stereo.
  • Remove the Stereo
  • The Neon stereo deck is held into the stereo mounting bracket by 10 millimeter bolts on either side of the radio. Remove the bolts and store them in the ashtray for safe-keeping.

    Pull the stereo from the dock. The unit will easily slide from the mounting bracket with an even pull from the left and right of the stereo. Pull the stereo far enough to reach the wiring on the rear of the radio.

    The wiring to the stereo includes the antenna, the power supply and the speaker wires. There may also be patch cables connected if an amplifier is connected to your stereo system. Pull the cables from the stereo. The antenna and power supply are single cables. The speaker wires (and patch cables) will be grouped by wire binders. The plastic wire binders should be pulled as a unit. Do not pull the wires themselves.

    Once the wiring has been disconnected from the stereo, the unit will be completely free from the Neon.

    If you plan to operate the vehicle before installing a new stereo or re-installing the factory deck; reconnect the grounding cable to the negative battery lead. Otherwise, leave the cable away from the negative lead until all of your work is completed.

    Need car stereo code for honda accord 1995


    stereo codes for Honda

    Method 1 (all applicable models except '03-07 Accords with the navigation system)
    1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
    2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see stereo COdE in the display. If you don't see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
    3. Turn off the audio unit.
    4. Press and hold the 1 and 6 preset buttons, then turn on the audio unit. The display toggles between two screens. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200). The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055). Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.

    Method 2 ('03-07 Accords with the navigation system)
    1. Turn the ignition switch to ACC (I).
    2. Turn on the audio unit, and make sure you see COdE in the upper display. If you don't see this message, pull the backup fuse for 1 minute, and then go back to step 1.
    3. Turn off the audio unit.
    4. Press and hold the top halves of the SEEK/SKIP and CH/DISC bars, and then press and release the PWR/VOL knob. This display toggles between two screens. The first screen displays a U and the first four digits of the serial number (for example, U2200). The second screen displays an L and the last four digits of the serial number (for example, L0055). Ignore the U and L, and write down all eight digits.
    5. Call Honda Dealer for Radio Code.
    6. Use the TUNE knob to enter the first four digits of the anti-theft code into the audio unit. (Ignore the last digit; it's not used.) When you turn the TUNE knob, COdE disappears, and a single digit is displayed. Turn the knob left or right to select each of the anti-theft code digits. When you press the TUNE knob, the system beeps and accepts each digit as it spells out CODE on the display.

    Help on ajusting the speakers


    If you have the factory stereo, push in the power button with the stereo on, and then turn it to adjust the balance between left and right. Then you can return it to the normal position. Then PULL out the same knob and when you turn it you will adjust the "fade" between front and rear speakers.

    Need to change the 12v supply by the Radio


    The Ford Focus has a stereo problem where the display blinks on and off, with or without the ignition on. This is not a power problem.

    This problem occurs when attempting to store a radio station when a blank RDS signal is being transmitted.
    To restore your stereo:
    • Insert a CD, stereo will turn on in CD mode.
    • Press MENU button
    • Select DEFAULT RESET by turning the right rotary knob and press to select
    • Select YES by tuning the right rotary knob and press select
    • Press BACK button
    • Press the RDS button once, display will read RDS OFF
    • Stereo will now work properly
    To prevent this problem from occurring again, be sure some text is in the top line of the display when setting a stereo station. Do not set a station when the station name is blank in display.
