Why does my stereo turn off at high volume?
If the car stereo or amplifier powers off when raising the volume, then there may be an issue with installation. This usually occurs when the ground wire is not connected properly. However, it also can occur when an amplifier becomes overloaded by connecting too many speakers.
Why is my car radio suddenly static?
There are various reasons that can cause static, including signal degradation as a result of RF interference, mainly due to an unshielded antenna cable or wire too close to the antenna putting out electromagnetic(EM) interference. Sometimes, the problem may be with the radio or accessories.
How do I get rid of interference on my car radio?
There are two ways to suppress interference from motors. First, try fitting an earth-bonding strap between the motor casing and the bodywork. Use a length of copper braiding, or a piece of heavy-gauge wire. Suppressor and power-supply choke fitted to an electric clock.
What does speed sensitive volume control mean?
MINI Speed Sensitive Volume is an audio technology designed to maximize audio clarity when traveling at higher speeds. Road and wind noise increase with speed, and can ruin the quality of your in-car audio. We have all had to raise the volume due to road noise, only to be bombarded with loud audio once we slow down.
Why does my speaker turn off when I turn the volume up?
In many cases, premature shutoff of your unit can be caused by a problem with the speaker wiring between the receiver and speakers. A single strand of wire in the wrong place (causing a short circuit condition) will cause the unit to shut off at anything but very low volume levels.
Why are my speakers making a static noise?
The most frequent cause of static noise in speakers is a loose connection. If the speakers use cables with connectors, make sure that the connectors are firmly positioned in the ports on the backs of the speakers and the amplifier or receiver. Replace loose banana connectors or purchase a new set of RCA audio cables.
How do I stop interference on my FM radio?
A change of aerial height may also reduce the effect. A higher performance aerial can help lessen interference caused by nearby radio transmitters. If you have an aerial amplifier, use the lowest gain amplifier needed, to avoid possible system overload caused by the nearby transmitter.
How do I stop radio frequency interference?
Thin amounts of plastic wrap, wax paper, cotton and rubber are not likely to interfere with radio waves. However, aluminum foil, and other electrically conductive metals such as copper, can reflect and absorb the radio waves and consequently interferes with their transmission.
What is speed compensated volume control?
The speed compensated volume automatically adjusts your sound system’s volume as your speed changes, to adjust for road and wind noise. Use the Up/Down buttons to select Speed Compensated Volume, then press the right button.
What does SVC stand for on a radio?
Speed-sensitive Volume Compensation
Speed-sensitive Volume Compensation (SVC) Controls the volume based on vehicle speed. The faster you go, the louder the audio volume becomes. As you slow down, the audio volume decreases. The SVC has four modes: SVC OFF, SVC LOW, SVC MID, and SVC HIGH.
Who are the hosts of Spike’s car radio?

When does the radio volume go up or down?
It goes up, it goes down, all on it’s own without any input from us. Here are some observations: Only happens when the car is in motion, at a stand-still it is fine. Only happens when listening to radio, not CD player or DVD player. The car does not have a “knob” for the volume, it is just buttons (rules out potentiometer thingy)
Why does my Honda radio change volume by itself?
Hondas have it as well, you just need to read the manual on how to shut it off. ok4450 July 6, 2016, 2:36am #4 Just throwing something out there but if this car is not equipped with a speed compensated volume control it’s also quite possible the problem could be a faulty radio head; manual potentiometer or not.
Is there a knob to change the volume on the radio?
The car does not have a “knob” for the volume, it is just buttons (rules out potentiometer thingy) There are steering wheel controls, but the fact that the volume changes only happen when listening to the radio, and not CD, make me believe it’s not those.
