I have a Honda 2003 plate car which has the factory fitted (Type B) radio which leaves a lot to be desired. It powers on and works a treat apart from one glitch- there is no volume/sound on from any of the speakers. I have googled the problem and it was suggested that perhaps the knob is broken and doesn't rotate the spindle in the radio that adjusts the volume. I thought this may be it- but when turning the knob, I can see on the LCD the numbers going up and down (volume level) but no sound so its definately turning the spindle. The car had gone for a service a few days ago and the mechanic had a look at it (he's no electricion, mind..) said that the 'volume knob' was faulty and to replace the radio. I someohow have a feeling that there is sommat up with the wires connecting the radio to the speakers perhaps? Mechanic checked but said that was not the case.
Sometime last year whilst driving around in an area unfamiliar to me, I went over a 'hump' on the road which I didn't know was there- the bleeder was a pointy tringular one and not the round smooth shaped variety.. I noticed that the radio suddenly went mute, and then over time when I'd go over a rickety bit of bumpy road it would simultaneously sound on so I would hear the radio, but soon, if I drove over another bump it'd go mute again. So the radio was on/off as it desired.. Havent heard it turned up for a while now..
What could be the problem here?
Any suggestions/ help greatly appreciated.
