The radio doesn't work. Started with the steering wheel

Customer Question
The radio doesn't work...

The radio doesn't work. Started with the steering wheel controls and the volume would go down anytime you hit any button. Fuses are good.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

Fuses under the hood are good. not one for the radio in dash.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2012 maxima SV

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

I am trying. She had a mechanic replace or repair the switch in the steering wheel.

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

Is there a way to disconnect the steering wheel controls.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
