Re: silly question bout GM stereos
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.

With the stereo on, hold the large round button in to get to setting menu. When it gets to that, I believe clock adjust comes up first, just turn the knob to get to demo mode and then push the button in. Turn the knob to switch demo off and then push it again. That should do it.

Im not a techy, but i know enough bout music to know what 2 do. If your car stereo has a AUX imput 3.5mm jack, (headphone-like-cord) you need to connect your Vibe to the cord and the cord to the AUX imput. then make sure that ur car stereo is set to AUX. when it does, the vibe most likely will be on pause or wat ever setting you left it on prior to connecting it. Now all u need to do is.....Selec the song or playlist, and press PLAY.
The "SCV" you see on the knob outside of the volume is Speed Compensating Volume. basically it automatically turns up the volume as you speed up and the vehicle makes more noise. given the fact that you don't have an owners manual i would recomend visiting http://gmownercenter.yahoo.com. you will need to register with a yahoo id but the site is full of information including an owners manual that you can download on your computer. hope this is helpful for you!
