The ASL is turned on but the volume does not increase when road noise increases. I took it to the dealer yesterday and was told the ASL 'is operating as designed by manufacturer'. My next step is to start writing letters, beginning with the dealership general manager.

This word usually means "this model is provided with ..." For example:
1. For models equipped with power steering, a bracket is added to the mounting flange with two 1/4 inch bolts.
For models that were sold with power steering, a bracket is added to the mounting flange with two 1/4 inch bolts. Not all models of this truck were sold with power steering, so you may not find this bracket on your truck.
2. If your radio is equipped with automatic volume control, the volume will automatically increase when outside noise is can be heard in the car, or when road noise increases.
If your radio was purchased with the option of automatic volume control, the volume will automatically increase when outside noise is can be heard in the car, or when road noise increases. Some models of this car have a less expensive radio model, and, on those models, the volume of the sound will not change when the windows are open and the surrounding noise level increases.
This clock is supposed to have an automatically "increasing" volume feature (starts off low, gets louder over a minute or so).
If not sufficient, look on the top right side of the clock, there should be an up/down volume control. It is a black oval-shaped button with a picture of a sound speaker in the middle. Push it upward to increase volume and downward to decrease volume. Unfortunately, you have to have a flashlight or light on to see it because none of the controls are illuminated.
If the issue you are describing follows this pattern (when slowing down, the radio turns down in volume, and when speeding up it turns up in volume), then your vehicle is equiped with an automatic volume control. This function was to allow the operator not to have to touch the volume control while driving. The volume increases to compensate for road noise. You should have a function control button that will allow you to turn this function off. Hope this helps.
Not sure about your car, but they come equipped now with a program that will decrease the sound level due to the traffic around and increase the volume to compensate for road noise. The best thing is to look in your manual, under the radio section and see if there is a section for this issue. If so, it can be disabled. We have a car that does it and I flipped out when it started so I disabled it. Not alot of help but it will give you a little insight to a possible solution.
Do you accidentally have it muted? The Mute button, located on PASSPORT's top panel and SmartCord. Have you turned up the volume on it? Volume Control (VOL) To increase or decrease the audio volume, press and hold the (+) or (-) volume control buttons located on the top case. A
sample alert tone will be generated, along with a corresponding bar-graph on the display. Once you have reached your desired volume level, simply release the button. This level will be stored in
memory. In Preferences Auto Volume is the default. This feature will increase the audio alert level automatically when the ambient noise in the vehicle is high. Good luck.
I know what you mean. Used to be a source of irritation in this otherwise super-quiet car. It was like "hey... the music plays far too loud now please drive a little slower dad". Really irritating on the Autobahn, constantly fiddling on that volume knob.
Interestingly, the instruction manual for the business CD main unit gave no clues at all! Then I found the solution at the bimmerfest BMW forum:
" 1.Power down the unit (using the knob) and power back up in the radio mode
(either AM or FM).
2. Hold down the "m" button (right of the display) until your display shows
a serial # xxxxxxxxxxx.
3. Using the "+" or "-" buttons that surround the center "musical note
symbol" button to the left of your display, scroll until "GAL 3" comes up,
which is factory setting. Using the number buttons 1 thru 6 below your
display, press the number "1". Your display will now read "GAL 1 ".
4. Power down the unit again (using the knob) and when you power back up,
your new setting will be effective!
5. To confirm that the new setting is active, repeat steps 2 & 3 to check
your "GAL" setting.
6. Enjoy your HK unit's volume the way YOU want to hear it! "
I assume there are slightly different versions of this in different models but it goes something like this, the keyword you are looking for in the menu system is "GAL" which is a German acronym for speed-sensitive volume control (Geschwindigkeitsabhängige Lautstärkenregelung für Radio).
