This should be a gm recall. Nearly all fail. I'm contacting gm to question them about repairing it as a recall. Thousands have reported this issue from the beginning of ownership.
Has not been fixed. I was told by an audio repair shop that they would have to completely replace the system and it would cost over $500.00 to fix. I cannot afford that so it has not been fixed.
