Question about 1996 Dodge Ram
I have the upgraded radio in my 1996 Dodge Ram pickup. The volume will not adjust.When turning the nob up or down it only wants to get louder. Can this be an easy fix? If needed, how do I get the radio out of the dash?
Hello. If this is repairable, the radio will have to be removed anyways. Some radios can be removed with a butter knife. If you pry off the front dash panel, there will be 4 screws holding on the radio. If you don't have the 4 screw type look for and tabs on the radio that are pryed up on the insides, pry them down with butter knife. Pull out stereo and disconnect the clip on wire harness.
You can try blowing out the unit and the knob if you purchase a can of "Air Duster" (compressed air and c02 in can)
If this radio is equipped, remove screws and cover to gain access to inside. Blow out the entire unit, especially the knob. The knob should also come off to spray inside.
If cleaning doesn't help, I suggest going to the junk yard and get another one for $15, otherwise WalMart, Kmart, sell them for $35+
