    my mates got an A3 , asked me to take a look at a faulty volume control. When i try and adjust the vol ,it either goes mega loud or silent. when you turn it off then on again it resets to an adequate level. It become very difficult to control these volumes.

    Anyone know how to fix it without having to replace????

    Its knackered, two of my headunits have done this, you need to get it replaced under warranty if you are still covered. I can get very embarrasing trying to adjust to volume in a busy public street.

    Agreed, it's knackered. Somewhere on here is a very technical explanation as to what has gone wrong and why. But you can't fix it unless you're an electronics engineer, so time to source a new one.

    Now a group buy is not a bad idea at all, count me in.

    well i'll have a look into the cost of these chips in a couple of weeks when i get back.
    if the programmer costs a lot then we could just send them off to a company to be programmed.
