Hello everyone - I'm new to the forum and hope someone can help. My wife has a 2005 S80 with the HU-650 radio. Recently it has started cycling between AM-FM & CD on it's own and we are at a loss as to why. I searched the forum and only found a posting in the S60 side where it was suggested that the battery be checked. Her battery is less than a year old - I understand it could still be bad - I'll check that out. Till then, are there any other suggestions?
My wifes 05 v70 wagaon HU-650 radio is also possessed. It also cycles AM to FM to CD and everything in between. Any answers? or comments......WIfe wants to trade in the car just because the radio doesn't work sometimes....HELP
The battery on ours checked out fine and (knock on wood) the radio hasn't acted up in about a week now. Speaking with local Volvo mechanics they say that it's the radio itself and not a larger electrical problem.
Same here - I bought my 2006 S-60 with HU-650 used (about 70,000 miles) and it always had a ghost that played with the volume - not that often, but obviously wrong. I added a XM radio and that works fine, up until a month ago. Now the evil spirit rolls through the AM/FM/CD sometimes - can't pin it to anything I'm doing. I just set the 3 FM stations to the frequency I need for the satellite, and I have a 3 out of 6 chance that when it rolls, it will settle on a channel I can use. (yeah, and 11 out of 10 times, toast lands jelly-side-down!)
Glad to hear I'm not alone - anyone try replacing the 650 with a replacement?
