Radio RANDOMLY ON upon Startup! :|

Recommended Posts

2019 Chevrolet Colorado.

Why does the radio sometimes come on at moderate volume level at startup EVEN THOUGH it’s either OFF or at a LOW volume when I shut off the truck!?

Seems to be intermittent and I can’t find any settings except for MAXIMUM radio start up volume, which SHOULD MEAN that if the radio is on LOUDER than that upon shut down, that that'd be the MAXIMUM it would turn back ON at… NOT the other way around (not such that if the radio is OFF, it'll automatically come ON at the selected volume).

Anyone else have this issue, or know how to fix it?

Thank you very much.

Very annoying.

Yeah, my 2016 Colorado does the same random thing.

I have many other complaints about the infotainment/(auto)HVAC system in these trucks.

 Mine randomly loses the USB media presets. It always keeps the AM/FM presets though. I have my music on my USB flash drive setup with artist/album/songs. The flash drive is never removed from the port in the console. Maybe there's a fix for this, but I never get any results when asking around.

Don't get me started on the HVAC...so many complaints.

This happens in my new 2021 Colorado... and I rarely turn the radio on. 
Drives me nuts!
