Do all the radio buttons on your steering wheel function correctly?

Is yours a in dash stacker 6 disc, or boot mounted stacker 10 disc?

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

It sounds like you have a low volts condition straight after start up, or whenever there is a quick demand (high beam, braking etc).

There are many faults with VZ/WL, so we need a TECH 2 to scan the vehicle for codes.

Your local Holden dealer will do this for you for a small charge, can you do this?

I would be more concerned of the ABS lamps than the radio at this point.

Hi again,

I know I would find your problem if I could see the car.

Yours is unusual, quite possibly low charging output of alternator or a poor ground that becomes hot.

I hope I was able to provide you with some guidance.
