: Stereo Problems

03-23-05, 11:00 AM
I just picked up my 2000 Catera sport. The stereo sounded great, but then I noticed that the seek button worked but the scan button did not. I later put in a CD it worked fine, but when I tried to switch to the Radio the "Band"button does not work. Then I tried to eject the CD and the eject button does not work :banghead: . So now I am currently stuck listening to the CD which unfortunately is an old copy of my original and it skips.
Any ideas on what I can do here?

Tear out the radio, take it apart, and see if you can find a break in the foil on the keyboard circuit board. That should burn up most of a weekend. :) This is actually a relatively common problem. It is tedious, though, but within the capabilities of anyone with electronics tech experience.

FWIW, http://www.carstereohelp.com/ does repairs and has detailed instructions on how to remove the radio. I have not used them for repairs, but others on this site have. If you decide to go that route, ask others for their experience
