I have a 2002 Wagon with the Monsoon audio system (Double DIN head unit). It has 115k miles and is a recent acquisition. I have been dealing with getting the regular maintenance items up to par and now working on less critical items.
I have read a few threads on the audio system and believe I probably need to forget repairing it and replace it; this is a last ditch effort for second opinions before doing that.
The head unit will power up.
It is in FM mode and reads the lowest FM frequency (and there is no FM station on that frequency).
The volume knob works and when I hit "min" I get the chirp tune through the speakers.
No other buttons function.
I have tried a fuse 37 reset. No change. But it also didn't ask for the code. Should I try that again? Am I pulling the correct fuse?
Any other thoughts?
Should I just call it a day and replace with a modern aftermarket unit? A replacement Monsoon from the dealer is 1/3 of what I have in the car, and I don't know that a used head unit is a good idea.
Thanks for any additional advice you have.
