fading head unit display

Postby lilojoj » Sat Jun 20, 2009 12:18 am

sometimes when i turn on my radio i can barely see what time it says or the radio station its on. its there but its just really really faded. after a while it will get brighter and back to normal. idk why it does that. also sometimes my radio doesnt work and i have to turn it off and then on again. i dont mind doing that but im thinking one day its not going to turn on ever. is this happening to anybody else? i have never messed with the electronics and everything is completely stock, electronics wise..

mine does it even when its cold at night. Was wondering if a ground kit and a battery upgrade would help with this. but then again its only a stock head unit so ill deal with it later.

Are you talking base stereo or Bose? If stock, I can say I've never had a problem and I see temps from -40C to +32C... I don't think temp is an issue.

I heard if you slap them the light turns up in faulty units

i have the BOSE one and it hurts cause I can't get the 2 line display when XM is on, nor can I get title to scroll when too long . Ideas ?

So my head unit started doing the same thing today for about 20 minutes. It faded in and out and then just stopped. Anyone took it to the dealer? I know its a small trivial issue but damn these cars have so many small issues with them....

Get an aftermarket head unit to replace your ipod, head unit, gps displays onto a nice 7" screen

haha i couldn't agree more thats alot of stuff -- just swap out the bose for a double din screen or a fold out, i think they both look pretty good.. I think bf is going to re-upgrade mine to a screen this christmas/birthday (they're a week apart) -- gotta love datin a car audio installer good luck - let us know what you decide!!

i couldnt handle havin this stupid Ipod wire dangling.. (i know it's not a bose.. but)

then it went to this..

now it looks like this.. hiding the ipod in the little storage area..

I think I'd gladly take the storage space instead of the 6-disc CD-changer they've got in there now. I only have 4 CDs in it.

So has anyone found a solution to this problem? Besides slapping the radio?
