Question about 2001 Pontiac Aztek
My wife's 2001 Pontiac Aztek has the factory radio. The volume control is a knob (not buttons or slider). It's becoming increasingly erratic; you turn the knob down, and the volume goes up, or sometimes doesn't change at all. I've found that if you turn the knob very, very slowly, it usually mostly works, but can still take a long time to actually change.
I've tried taking the knob off and using one of those spray cans of air to try to clean it, but no good. Is there any way that this is user-fixable, or should we just buy a whole new radio?
This is a common problem for this series of Pontiac radios. The volume control is a digital encoder rather than a variable resistor. There are services that will repair this for $50 to $100. Do a web search on "fix pontiac radio volume control".
