I had a question about the radio, this is for everyone that has the stock radio. It is a 2000 so does your radio give you any trouble. Mine occasionally makes a noise and doesn't take the CD, is this the norm?

Dads 2000. Turns on or off at will.. Driving along and bang. Radio on. He never mentioned that it won't take a cd or making noise.

I am working on everything else right now, and not replacing the radio since it is functional. Yet, I was wondering if there was any temporary fix. It seems like it doesn't take CD's when its hot out.

Mine is just the opposite, when it is hot out it won't spit out the CDs. I have to work a spare CD under the loaded one and wiggle it out. I suspect some sort of physics going on here heat and expansion" but that is my laymans thought. Most from what I have been reading is about the stock unit...I was wondering if any aftermarket units have similar problems.

My volume **** is a bit touchy. It's starting to jump around randomly when I try to turn it up or down. Just the excuse I need for a nice new system....

My 2000 had cd problems as well, it has long since been replaced with an aftermarket unit. Now that I have an ipod hookup I don't even listen to cd's anymore.
