Having problems with your 2004 Dodge Durango ?

This morning when I turned on my Durango, the radio volume would not increase when the volume knob is turned manually or with the steering wheel controls. The radio is on, I can change stations and to the CD player, but the volume dos not work. IT goes from 1 to 0 and back and that's it. I've tried turning the truck off, thinking the computer might need to reset and starting it back up, but nothing seems to work. What could it be?

Try disconnecting the vehicles battery for about 5 minutes.
This is no doubt a problem with the components used in the radio ,you will find that when it warms up it will function perfectly .The components used are not of top quality ,but no doubt made in china and when it gets cold the conductivity of the components change causing this problem that you describe ,once the vehicle warms up with the heater on it will work.My made in china car radio does exactly the same but once the inside of the car warms up its perfect.

I own a 1992 GMC Sierra Pickup still with the factory am/fm radio receiver and the seperate cassette player with graphic equalizer. A few years back it started to fail when turning on and now does work at all. When power is on to the truck and radio it shows a station, volume about 1/2 way up with no sound. Volume is not adjustable nor is the radio station by either pressing a different channel button or using the tuner (seek) button. With truck power on and the radio powered off the clock jus

Radio just stops working, then weeks pass and all of a sudden the cd changer starts making nosies and the radio starts to work again. In one instance when the truck was turned off the radio stayed on. This last time once the truck was turned off and then re-started the radio is back to normal - not working. from what I was told this is a known problem but with no recourse except buying a re-conditioned one - can an after market radio be installed instead? - very frustrating
