I continue to have problems with my radio freezing. If it is ON when I turn the car off, let the car sit for a few minutes and restart, the radio plays. As soon as I try to change the station, it freezes. I have to power cycle the radio a few times to get it to work.<p>Volvo service did the software reload/upgrade. That didn't work so they changed the ICM. It still freezes. I showed the service guy again today. He is puzzled. <p>Has anyone had this problem and had it fixed? <br>What did they do to fix it? <br>What year car?<br>Which stereo system?<p>Thanks <br>Stan

Re: Radio Freeze - Anyone Gotten it fixed, I mean really fixed? (AutoGeek)

I have the same problem every few weeks or so: just no response, but after a while of being powered off it seems to work, sometimes if I restart the engine it will work right then.<br>Interested in a fix too. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Hi,<br>I had my entire radio unit replaced twice and the software updated. They could never fix it. Some field expert stopped by the dealership and solved the problem for my car and another one with the same issue. The fix for my car believe it or not was a switch in the steering wheel controls.<p>2005 S40 T5 FWD Manual 6<br>Premium Audio.<p>I will find my service ticket and get the exact info to you.<br>

That is an interesting fix. How did they ever determine that it was the steering wheel controls? Were your steering wheel controls working ok before the fix?<br>Stan

Re: (jdsr917)

Error is usually a fault with the actual CD player itself. Were the steering wheel buttons replaced due to the radio scanning randomly?

Re: (carreragt7)

Nope. I have just been living with it for now. I told my service writer that other folks here had the same problem. He asked me to find out if any of you had yours fixed and how. I'll have them look at it again the next time I am in for service.<br>Stan

Re: (AutoGeek)

Anyone get it fixed yet? <p>I had the car back to service for another issue and asked about the radio again. They hadn't done anything yet. Tuesday, the Volvo Tech Rep is supposed to be there to look at another car and they are going to ask him...maybe.<p>Stan
