Hi there,

My name is***** am a Gold Certified Holden Technician.

I'll try to help you with your problem.

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?

6 stacker dash all buttons on steering wheel function also when braking sometimes the radio will cut out sometines when first starting car it will alarm abd say thet the traction control is off or there is an ABS fault or both just by turning off the ignition and restarting the car these faults go away

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.
AU Auto Mechanic: Gary, Australia Car Mechanic replied 2 years 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.

Regards

Gary
