    Radio controls

    Well we got the beast out of it's winter slumber. And while we were crusin down the road I noticed that the radio controls on the steering wheel were not functioning normal.
    When I push the volume up button the volume goes down. I then push the volume up button and it goes down. And when I push the mute button nothing happens. And then sometimes everything magically works as it should. WTF!
    Any ideas as to what the problem may be?

    I did have to change the battery in it before getting out. Would this have anything to do with it?

    Yup....been there done that
    It is the little red connector in your steering wheel...it needs cleaned....the ohms between up and down volume are minuscule and this connector gets "dirty" and voila...you get up or down regardless what button you push. You just need to clean the connector with contact cleaner and it will go back to working fine....No big deal to do....you do need a 30mm socket to pull the nut off the steering wheel.....
