Default Re: Disabling/changing preset volume on stock stereo?

i dont know if this will help:
hold down both the preset 3 and 6 buttons at once for a few seconds,
push preset button 1, it will run a self test and will read any dtc's if it fails anything.
repeat, but push preset button 2, see if there are any other stored dtc's.

diagnostic trouble code, its like the codes that trigger the check engine light, but for the radio.

its probably different for each radio then, i know mine (stock 6cd) gives something back when i hit 1.
the codes should be longer, i think...
try hitting other preset buttons after holding 3+6 some of the things it will probably do are a display test, signal strength, etc, depending on what buttons you push. it can't hurt it, you just turn the key off to get out of that mode.

i have no idea what LIFE means lol

yeah that's why i said maybe it wouldn't help you lol,
i just thought it might have a code stored from something being broken, and that's why it does that. pretty sure it should go back to where you left it.
