To my knowledge, control called Speed Compensated Volume (SCV) raises the volume as the car's speed increases, and it can be set to one of several levels of sensitivity. It is meant to compensate for road noise.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Car stereo just randomly stop work doesnt allow me to turn up volume or change stations or set it to aux none of the buttons work but the stereos turns on.. what could it be???

Well knowing what stereo you have would help, but mine, the volume knob doubles as the settings knob if you press it. In some newer systems like mine, you should find a "back" button (small arrow) like on a cell phone. Trying using that to escape the settings mode that you might have activated.

I've got all the wires connected, like the manual says, turn on my car and nothing happens, what gives?

first of all what vehicle is it, because if it is a 2003 gm or later you might have to run a separate power wire to your red wire on your stereo. but if it isn't a gm. disconnect the wire harness from the back of the radio and make sure you have a constant 12volt to the yellow wire and 12volts on the red wire when you switch the ignition key to on. use a test light or a multimeter for this. you can find either pretty cheap at wally world or an auto-parts store.

Had a new battery put in my car and now when I press source only the CD and FM show up not the AUX for my iphone. Cant figure out how to get the AUX programmed back in there. Its JVC stereo KD-G310.

push the volume knob button in and hold it down until the psm menu pops up. your display should read "DIMMER" press the track forward button repeatedly until you get to "EXT IN" and then use the volume knob to select it. then hold down that volume knob button again for 4 to 5 seconds and your done

I lost the booklet for the radio in my 1990 Jaguar XJS. It sits all winter in the garage and the battery wore down. The radio says code when i turn it on. The dealer says i must remove the radio to get the...

Remove the two environmental knobs by firmly pulling them. Note that they don't interchange (they're notched 180' out from each other) - but figuring out which one is which is easy - the FAN should be off when you do this, and that one will have the indicator facing down when you reassemble.
Behind the knobs are keyed nuts. Remove by using an appropriatley-sized flatbladed screwdriver while pushing in on the face plate (reducing the back pressure on the nut).
Once you have the two nuts out (one on each control shaft), you should remove the stereo face trim. Use an allen wrench or some other small bent piece of metal and gently insert it between the stereo and the facing along the side of the stereo (there is some space there), and pull the facing forward a bit at a time (possibly alternating sides). You can also do the same along the bottom of the facing (near the console) and along the top (below the light switches and trip computer).
Note:there are wires along the bottom edge, and they don't have a long play, so you'll be pulling the TOP DOWN rather than the bottom up when you clear the front of the stereo housing. Be careful: there are fibre optics here for lighting.
To either side of the stereo are two screws. Remove them and slowly pull the stereo outward. Disconnect the stereo from the two harnesses (speakers and power/controls), unscrew the grounding strap and unplug the antenna. Remove stereo.

Change car stereo frequency from USA to UK

On many imported cars , the radios have options for different areas of the world (UK/EUROPE : ASIA  : USA+Americas  etc. )
If you have a MENU button  on your radio , see if you can find the Area choice option.
Once found , then it is just a matter of switching to the area required ( In your case UK/EUROPE)
