My radio knobs and display stopped working, but the stations can be changed with the steering wheel controls.

Hello Monica Briggs,

I've been into three different "wheel control" sound systems...

One for sure had a SEPARATE FUSE for the radio (FACE versus STEERING-WHEEL) controls...
(that was ... Find THE OPERATED FUSE & replace it).

Two was a SIMPLE RESEAT (unplug/re-plug) of the REMOVABLE face plate...

Three most interesting by far was a STUNNED radio...
Last operated from the steering wheel ... would respond to no inputs (any-source).

Thanks to Bill Gates (BLUE SCREEN of D**TH) training the WORLD on the POWER-RESTART ... We simply disconnected the CAR Battery for a minute... put it back together... set the time & stations.. and pretended we knew what we were doing...

Hope this is at least inspiring... Good luck.

If perchance your vehicle is a popular USA model... look
on the BBB Industries FREE Wiring Diagrams & Technical Service
Bulletins***... (registration required (but well worth it)).

Otherwise search your Model+WORKSHOP+REPAIR+MANUAL
to get your technical specs.

***Bulletins: is where I found a clogged A/C drain was causing water damage to a HIGH-END Toyota sound system.

Did you find the problem with your radio Terry? I have a 2005 X type and the radio has just suddenly started doing exactly the same thing - cant change radio station or use steering controls, only the volume knob works.

Radio Crackles on Medium Wave on Ford Focus C-Max late 2004

If your on/off button is also the volume control. Pull on the knob as you turn the volume up and down threw this section, don't pull so hard that you pull it off the radio. Do this a few tims it seem to work for me when I get static at the control knob. It either gets dirty in there or corrossion, or just a bad contact. Usually it's when the volume and on/off button are the same button.

The volume not does not work on the infinity radio. I can control volume from the steering wheel but not the knob. Is this normal? Can it be fixed?

dear friend-the volume on the steering works from the back of the radio and the knob from the front,they work seperate but both can be used,so the knob on your radio is not working.

Volume control knob on radio turns volume up at all times

first of all if you live in a cold climate I never turn the radio on until the car warms up if you can remove the knob on the radio spray a light amount of WD 40 and then put the knob back on and turn it back and forth and if you have pop on your hand or water also dry your hands off before touching the radio the lights and the radio will last a lot longer also and also before leaving the car always remember to turn the radio off it will be alot easier on your battery as well
