    Volume knob on Monsoon retarded

    Something is wrong with my volume knob. It just seems like it only half way works. I turn and turn and the volume doesnt change. Then if I barely move it, it jumps up full blast. My steering wheel control works good though( God bless TA's! ) Any recommendations?

    Thats just a pontiac thing. My girlfriends grandammit did it as with about half the pontiac I've ever tried to turn down the stereo.

    Lol mine does somthing completely different. When I try to turn the vol down it'll go up a few notches then go down. So whenever I have a passenger trying to answer their phone, and I try to be courteous and turn down the radio I look like an ass.

    So strange. My '99 T/A does the very same thing if I try to adjust the volume from the head unit. I just use the volume buttons on the steering wheel, instead. No problems there.

    It's seriously gotta be a Pontiac thing! !! Every Pontiac I have ever owned and I've quite a few, the radio volume knob has always sucked. My 2002 Trans Am did the same exact thing so I just changed the radio... But like ya said, steering wheel controls have no problem. go figure.

    Mine acts funny, too. If you turn it alot, it does fine. If you're trying to do minor adjustments, though is when it acts strange. You might turn it down a notch and have the volume actually go up, or vice versa.

    Yup, that is EXACTLY what mine does. One guy on here suggested kinda pullin out on the knob. I tried it and it works perfect if you do that! How weird?

    Yep, I just tried the same thing and it works. If I pull back on the volume knob while turning it, then it works as expected. No more sudden blaring sound when I try to decrease the volume a notch or two! Thanks.

    you can try shimming the knob itself to keep it "pulled out" at all times. I don't know, it may work, it may not.
    I guess all you would need is a set to washer slightly behind the button itself.

    Its Hard To Keep It Shimmed In The "pulled Out" Position. I Just Keep Pulling The Knob Out. Works For Almost Everyone Else From What I See.

    mine does the thing where it started INCREASING the volume by about 15% when I try to turn it down... only when it's already pretty loud...

    probably need to clean the contacts on the knob... but instead, I'm just gonna get the DEH-P980BT
