Problem resolved through outside electronics repair facility in Van Nuys CA.  Hi-Tech Electronics.  Found internal PC Board failure, replaced board with new, restored all functions to normal.  

I'd say that he took it to Hi-Tech Electronics in Van Nuys, CA.  There, they found an internal PC board failure and replaced the board with a new one.🤷‍♂️

Does it really matter?  The radio is from a truck at is more than 20 years old, it would be cheaper to just swap in another oem or even third party radio vs paying someone to take the radio apart, figure out what and where the problem is, fix/replace that part, then reassemble and reinstall.

I fixed all the issues with the factory radio by removing it and installing a new double-din head unit.  It has Android Auto and a reverse camera.  It sounds better, displays my GPS, and is really handy when hooking up to a trailer (9' flatbed and I can put the ball right under the hitch using the camera).  With the wiring harness, dash install kit, and new head unit, I spent $140...

      Phone connects to truck via bluetooth every time with no issues.
      When receiving a call, it will always ring thru the truck and display on the cluster & myLink screen but SOMETIMES after answering the call volume will be out of the phone speaker only. During this time, the call will still show active on both displays and the radio volume will be silent.
      Look at the phone, it shows connected to bluetooth and no matter what I do on the truck or phone I cannot get the volume back to the truck.
      The hangup button on the steering wheel will still end the call.
      Once the call is ended, the radio volume comes back.
      Same issue when making a call, again, the issue is intermittent.
      Doesn't matter if I make the call from the phone or using the voice commands, audio has reverted back to the phone on occasion both ways of making a call.
      I always answer/end calls with the buttons on the steering wheel, the phone always connects to the truck, and the call audio problem is intermittent with no obvious cause.
      Anyone experience this and have a fix?
