    Car problems

    I have noticed ever since I got my 2000 sunfire about a month and a half ago, that sometimes when I slow down, my radio/cd player starts lowering the volume, and it usually picks back up when I get to a certain speed.

    I dont have the carputer in yet, so its not that. I was hoping that its not a weak battery/alternator because Im about to dive right into installing the carputer.

    It doesnt seem to happen everytime (atleast I dont notice it), but my wife noticed it today and pointed it out to me (I have heard it a few times before)

    Its one of the Delco factory radios, with the theftlock.
    2000 Sunfire build 100%, or is it ever really 100%?

    You haven't read your manual yet, have you...
    Some manufacturers install radios with a volume attenuator when you slow down. Very nice feature. Be proud that you have it! There was a discussion here a while back about creating that circuit, but I don't think anything substantial resulted from it.

    Lucky you!

    Edit: You may be able to configure how much it attenuates when you slow down. Check the manual for that....

    YEah thats a normal "feature" for a GM radio.. My dads chevy truck does that and it ****es me off everytime I drive it.. Im happy my stock radio in my colorado doesnt do it.. bet even if it did its being replaced by the carputer soon anyhow.
