Default Radio Volume

New to us 2014 QX80. Love it, except for an issue that we have found with the radio volume. For no reason the volume fades/lowers. I'm not sure if the volume is lowering throughout the vehicle, or fading to the rear and only lowering in the front. I turned off the feature that raises/lowers the volume based on speed and it didn't help.

I'm wondering if there is a short somewhere.

Any thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated.

Just a thought, have you tried resetting the radio? if not I would try there first. Don't disconnect the battery cable as that would not do a full reset you need to find and pull the fuse. If that don't work you may need to run a system test, because something internal might be the problem. I another good ideal is to get your hands on a service manual and follow the diagnostics in there.

Yo I have steering wheel controls. If that is flakey it may cause this.

The volume knob on the HU may also be flakey and could be intermittently causing this. Perhaps a can of compressed air under the knob may help?

Does your volume knob feel more “loose” than , say your “folder” knob button on the right side?
