My car stereo won't stop randomly switching tasks


Did you check to make sure the source button was not stuck in a depressed mode. If it is an analog button then it may have caught the corner of the face. If this is a virtual switch then I would say a control board is fried and cheaper to replace the unit then to fix it.

Radio changing stations as well as tachometer at 0 or moving random while driving.


No, you have two separate issues. The tach is run by a logic chip in the instrument panel. This chip also runs other things, like the speedometer. So you have a bad solder joint on the tach motor(easy fix after the IP is out). The radio changing stations is because the button is stuck or moisture in the button. These aren't hard to replace either. You spend more time dismantling the radio than fixing the problem. Is the radio worth it?

Turn the radio off first and then disconnect the battery for 2 min then reconnect the battery. This should reset your radio and then you can eject your CD, and reset your stations and clock. Good luck

CD Player/Radio doesn't work right


I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem with our '04 Sedona. It just happened yesterday. I tried the reset button and it worked. My volume wasn't way up like yours, but my radio did reset.
We have an extended warranty, so hopefully if this is going to happen again, our warranty will cover it.
Thank you for posting your problem!

CD player is not working.


I would first try removing the fuse to the radio/cd player, see if that resets the system and get the cd out.

Hope this helps some.

Sounds like the head unit is bad. If the truck is under warranty , get it back to the dealership.
