radio stuck on a channel

Recommended Posts

Well, the snow is gone, spent half the night on getting the car ready for its maiden voyage (aluminum pedals, door sills, ipod-fm modulator mounted, fresh coat of wax) but the PCM is stuck on a single radio station.

The only button that works is volume - can't change anything els on the radio.

It is a MY2006 997c2 - with the pcm/and Nav (dvd based)

Any suggestions - and yes - it was on a battery maintainer all winter.

I tried a soft rest with the "147" buttons - but nothing hapens.

THanks in advance

Brent

I would dis-connect the battery for about

5 minutes. This will cause you to reset all of your radio

stations.

disconnected the battery, but the radio still jammed on one station - now I need to reset a PSM light as well (not an issue- have acces to durametrics).

Also - If I have the car off, and open the door again - he radio goes on and can't be shut off unless I cycle the key?

Any other suggestions/fixes?

The PCM issue can be the result of the i-pod FM modulator, check also the fuse on the rear of the unit. If you cant see anything, a PIWIS should be needed.

RFM,

Do you mean that a griffin little FM modulator that plugs into the cig lighter could be the issue? Even though it hasn't been used?

ALSO, for the fuses on the back - do you have to pull the radio, or can you get at them with it installed? And can an FM modulator blow the fuses?

Thansk again Brent

The PCM should be removed to check the fuse. All works done related, or in the PCM area, can blow the fuse.

RFM,

Started to work on the PCM tonight - removed driver side panel (they sure made this an easy procedure), then went to work on the passenger side - radio was on as it could not be shut off and would turn on anytime a door was opened.

So as I was getting the passenger side panel off, the screen changed - low and behold - all the buttons worked, nav comes up - etc!

Gues I scarred it into working! It must have realized it was going to be removed and decided to co-operate! Or it just was a little late coming out of hibernation form the canadian winter

Thanks for all the input. I will keep an eye on things and if it recurs will try and figure things out again.
