    The radio has been acting up for a while now. The volume control wont lower or raise correctly. Volume will go up or down regardless of which way I am turning the dial or which steering wheel volume button I push. Now the CD changer cycles through all the discs each time the truck is started, does it if radio is off or on, very annoying, and there are no CD's in it. One CD got stuck a while back and took forever to get it out. And the CD player skips badly.

    Can this unit be sent anywhere for repair? I would prefer to keep it original if possible, but am open to an aftermarket head unit as long as I dont have to cut anything up.

    I had great success with sending the one out of my 06 with the changer in to infotaiment.com. They fixed the joystick and the changer. I had a couple of disks that were stuck in and they went through it and fixed everything. Works flawlessly now.

    They go out after awhile, my screen started getting garbled awhile back but everything else still worked...If you're wanting to stay stock and easiest fix then just get a take out unit off of ebay, you can usually find them for ~$200-500. I just swapped out my REC NAV unit on my 06 QC with one from an 08 Jeep Commander and it worked perfect, plug and play! Had it swapped out in about 15 minutes.

    I have 2 nearly new 6 disk units sitting in a closet. I put the nav units in to replace them. If anyone is interested let me know.
