Yep.....same problem. Owned car for six weeks. Dealer fixed it . Replaced a lot of different things - radio, Onstar etc - Not sure they really found the root cause. We shall see. Very disappointing. Worry about future probs with this car. BTW, dealer blamed it on faulty, low quality imported (made in China) parts Chev uses now. That's a real confidence builder. Detroit chants "Buy American"? Hah.

Why 06Tribeca audio button on steering wheel will not (+) volume but it will (-) volume. Also the mute button will not mute?


Suspect a steering wheel control issue if the volume will work directly from the radio itself.

No sound on radio


Has the star button on the steering wheel been pressed as this mutes the radio. just press it again to un mute. If this is not the issue, then more info on the radio model type is required.

You need to sync your phone. There is a video on utube on hoe to sync your phone with the Ford Sync system. It worked for me.

2008 eos radio with no directions


I am a EOS owner with a multifunction steering wheel.
I hope the following is helpful to you.
you have 4 buttons on the left and four on the right of your steering wheel.

left side
top and bottom left, volume up and down
top right (star) is the radio mute.
bottom right on the left side is the telephone button.

right side
top left on right side is the computer changer it has lines on it.
this changes the screen to setting, radio, telephone etc.
botton left is (ok) enter button
top right is the menu select up
bottom right is the menu select down to move up and down the menues
view outputs on the small screen between the rev counter and speed gauge.

Setting up phone
for phone use you will need a cradle for your phone which fits into the phone holder on your dash. it must be the exact one for the phone you have eg nokia E51if your phone has bluetooth, plug in your phone into the cradle and lock it in. set your phone to have bluetooth on, and start search for new bluetooth device. then with the car ignition on, press the left of the two buttons on the phone cradle and within 5 seconds the right one, what should happen now is the phone should show it has found a new device. select the device on your phone and when asked put in the code 0000 zero zero zero zero. press OK on your phone, this will allow your phone to be connected to the car via bluetooth connection.

using your phone, you can make calls, and hear the other end through your car loudspeakers, your microphone is integrated into the light panel by the rearview mirror. when have a call this it will mute the radio and you can control the volume of the call with the volume control on the steering wheel and end or answer calls with the phone button on your steering wheel. for phones without bluetooth the connection is made when the phone is placed in the cradle.

for other function press the top left button on the right side, this will scroll the different options, convienence options can only be changed when the car is stationary. audio is for the radio, using the far right buttons you can change channels with this and select with the OK button.

for a new manual ask at a breakers yard if they have a eos in maybe they have the user manual with it. or ask a car rental if they offer EOS and ask if you could photocopy the part of the manual you do not have.
i would send you mine but it is in German.

Mute Button ON


The phone button is what does the muting.
If you feel that is not the problem I would suggest contacting the jaguar dealership in your area.
