Just installed a new avh-x3700bhs and the remote controls

Customer Question

Just installed a new avh-x3700bhs and the remote controls are weird when scrolling through the preset stations using the buttons on the steering wheel, or the wireless remote control that came with it, it will sometimes go to a random channel that is not assigned a preset or go back instead of next, or next instead of back
It is installed in a 2004 Cadillac Deville
using a Metra gmos-06
and an axxess aswc-1 steering wheel module

Hi there,

This can happen if some of the buttons are sticking.

Try pressing all buttons on the remote firmly and release them again.

If that doesn't help, try wiping the touchscreen on the system - if there is any contamination on the touchscreen, it can cause random selections.
