  • Check if the number of broadcasting stations changes depending on time and place.

  • Does it change?

Yes

The system is normal. (Explain to customer that SEEK sometimes does not stop depending on the signal reception condition.)

NOTE:

  • Signals tend to reach longer distances at night. (It is conspicuous in AM signals, several audio functions may stop due to foreign broadcasting station or noise.) Though the audio system restrains sensitivity of SEEK and SCAN functions at night, the audio system may select broadcasting stations other than those desired when signals are considerably strong. This function is linked to the parking light. When the parking light or the headlights are turned on, SEEK and SCAN may not function for weak signals.

No

Replace audio unit.
