Customer Question
2001 f-150 with radio...

2001 f-150 with radio with a 6 cd changer. The volume on the radio doesn't work.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

No, the radio shows to be on, just no sound

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your F150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, I am. The radio was replaced by a dealership 2 years ago and has not been used much since then.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Nothing I can think of.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

As far as I can tell, just no volume.
Ford Mechanic: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

ok with pressure push in and rotate knob, fully depressed push with pressure and rotate to see if you get any of the volume functions back

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
