Is there any reason the stereo volume resets to 18 whenever the car is turned of and on, no matter what volume it was at before?

I found most of these anomalies usually are related to a loose plug on the back of the ICC and stereo unit itself-worth checking anyway.

So it's not just some setting that you can program it to come on at a certain volume?

So it appears to be a feature stop a heart attack or ear damage if someone turns the car on and the stereo was on full volume before.
If you have the volume set below 18 it will stay at whatever volume you had it on, but if you have it above 18, it will default to 18 next time it's turned on.

:? I don't follow... Whatever I leave it on (above 18) it will just be at 18 when I next turn it on. But if I leave it below 18 it will stay at whatever it was on.

It's only loud if you're using the factory stereo... Meaning if you're running something through a phone, to a headunit and then into the factory amp, you can lower the volume on the other devices so that the car volume of 18 is quite reasonable :mrgreen:

You shouldn't have to run it through an amp if you are using the AUX setting.
My volume resets to 13 EVERY time the bluetooth says something. I have never figured out how to change it. Not many people ring me anyway..
