Question about 1995 Dodge Ram

1 Answer

My radio volume goes from full normal to full blast when it wants. I have to turn it off to save my speakers.

My radio volume goes from a normal level to full blast. It does this when ever it wants to and nothing I do will cause it to happen or nothing will cause it to stop short of turning it off. Any ideas? Bob

I would replace the radio. Especially if its stock. Look on www.craigslist.com and www.ebay.com for a replacement. You should get a good deal between the two.

The radio in my 1995 jeep grand cherokee plays full volume on the right channel when turned on.


  1. bad radio amp
  2. bad wiring to speakers.
  3. or bad speakers.
the tests are easy, ask.
my guess is the weak side is bad, the load side is ok.
you can turn the volume down on the load side using volumn control
if yes that side is ok, fix weak side.

ask how, but make sure the wiring in all 4 corners are not damage
and at both ends of harness.

Tip

Motors. temperature rising/oveheating in traffic


When you observe your temperature guage climbing into the red while in trafiic, open your windows (depending on weather) and turn your heater on full blast until it goes into normal temperature again. once the traffic has cleared find a local garage and have you water level and cooling fan operation checked. Do not attempt to open the radiator or expansion tank when hot as this could result in serious injury.

The radio plays full volume on right channel when turned on.


Anything I tell you is going to be a guess, since there has been no testing done, and we don't have the model number of the specific radio involved. However...
For a 20 year old radio, the volume and balance is almost certainly controlled by a potentiometer that has input into one leg of the fixed resistance, and the other leg (of the fixed resistance) is grounded. The movable center tap is the output to the amplifier - and its position controls the volume to that channel. If the ground leg becomes disconnected (broken wire, or a cold solder joint, or even a break in the resistor within the body of the potentiometer) then instead of "dividing" the volume, it simply provides a slight resistance inline - short answer: It goes full volume.
You can try running the control full range back and forth, and even just the old time "slap it" approach, to see if you get any static or change. If you do, that pretty well confirms the diagnosis. [If not, it just means the break is not close to touching - still almost certainly the right answer though.]
Only fix is going to be disassembly. You then may be able to find the break (and resolder it), and/or replace the volume potentiometer. Note that if you have remote volume/balance control (controls on the steering wheel), then there is some extra wiring that can likewise be involved. jk

Volume won't go up on radio in 2009 Hyundai Sonata


If it has on the steering wheel controls, they are bad. They use a carbon type impregnated rubber and being in hot and cold can cause this. IT could also be the clock spring in the steering column or if none of those apply then it is radio itself.

Definitely sounds like the the PDB is getting wet. Simulate rain with a water hose w/ a nozzle gun. Spray it on the windshield and around the hood area and track where the water goes to determine what's getting wet.

I got a BMW 750i 2006 and when I got the radio on and give it gas the volume goes up and down... People say it's the amp is it...


The radio volume goes up when you give it Gas this intern hides engine noise. This is very common with higher end cars
There is a adjustment on the radio that will set the level you wish the volume to go up when accelerating, its a nice factory option to have there is nothing wrong with your BMW.
