Stereo - Ghost in the Machine - 2005 Volvo XC70

Recommended Posts

The stereo in the wife's XC70 is skipping around between source, running through the FM 1, FM 2, FM 3 and AM.  It just scrolls through for a while and then lands on one and plays for a little while.  It then randomly cycles through again and lands where ever it wants.  I had this problem in my old 850 and a simple stereo replacement fixed the issue.  I have already replaced the stereo once in this car (about 2 years ago) so I am wondering is this just a stereo issue?  Is it happening again simply because the used stereo I installed is having the same issue, or is there something else I should be checking?

...also, how do I change my signature line?  My cars have a changed a little bit and I want to update it.

Its the radio. The tuner pot has worn out.

Thanks.  I was afraid of that, although, I guess it's better to know it's a simple fix (relatively) and self-contained than one that I have to track down.  (I did the same replacement in other cars and those new stereos never went out, so I guess I just got a bad used one this time around.)
