Customer Question

Radio comes on, but sometimes no sound. Have changed the amplifier but still happening.
JA: Is this an aftermarket stereo, or did it come with the car?
Customer: Factory installed
JA: What is the model/year of your Cadillac?
Customer: 2007 CADILLAC STS
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Went to Cadillac dealer, they said it was amplifier, replaced amplifier, worked for a day, then started happening again. They recalibrated something and seemed okay for a week. Now sometimes I have sound and sometimes not.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Can't think of anything, it doesn't seem to have any reason. Drive somewhere with music, get out, come back and no music

IF you have changed the Factory AMP, then the issue can be the Radio, BCM or the Communication Module.
The BCM powers on the AMP & the Radio
The Communication Module enables the Radio, AMP & BCM to communicate with each other.
There is NO Customer Input for testing, other than checking connections & voltage
Use of GM Dealer Scan Tool is needed to Update, Test & Program

apprx 1 hour labor
Could be as simple as a Software Update
