    Hey guys,
    I have a 2006 GMC Sierra 2500. This has steering wheel controls also for the stereo. Out of nowhere, the volume was turning down on its own and radio stations were also changing on their own. This didnt happen until i used the volume button on the steering wheel. Does this sound like the switch (or buttons) may be shot and needs replacing??? Thanks,
    -Dan

    grounding issue going into the radio sounds like.

    I do this to people with the rear radio controls if I am in the back. Freaks em out:lol:. But outside of that I would start with some of the other suggestions
