GMC SIERRA RADIO PROBLEM

2005 GMC Sierra • 50,000 miles

The door chime is barely audible. I can only hear it through the right door speaker. I have adjusted the volume to high with the#6 button on the radio and am barely able hear it. I have owned the truck since it was new and recall a significantly louder chime?

You're stuck with the dealer on this one. Beginning with the '94 model year GM stopped allowing us to buy radio service manuals because they wanted to lock up all the repair business for their two grossly over-priced repair centers. Starting with some 2002 models they built the Body Computer into the radio so you had to get it fixed instead of buying an aftermarket replacement. Repaired / replaced radios also have to be programmed to the vehicle so the dealer can charge even more money from unsuspecting owners. This is just one of many reasons GM is having trouble finding repeat customers.
