Hi and thank you for the question. My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. Does the "FRONT AUX INPUT" message come on by itself while you are driving? Is this issue happening each time you drive the vehicle?

Not EVERY TIME. But much more frequently

Ok, this is good information. I have seen this particular issue several times before. What is happening is, the AUX input connection in the radio is coming loose or breaking apart. This is causing an intermittent connection. When this occurs, the radio sees an input from the AUX port and will then switch sources to play the AUX source. This is happening, obviously, when the port is not being used. The radio will have to be replaced in order to correct this issue. Unfortunately, GM radios are very expensive. A less expensive option to have the radio replaced, would be replacing it with an aftermarket radio. This option is less expensive. A professional car audio installer can usually install a nice radio (one of your choosing) at a fraction of the cost of a GM radio. I hope this helps. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
