Is it possible to repair a "short" on my 2010 Acadia radio?

Asked by Jan 24, 2015 at 10:55 AM about the Buick Enclave

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

CD/Aux button is malfuctioning, switches between radio and "aux imput device" at random. Have to keep a mp3 plug half way in to have any chance of keeping the radio on.
Very annoying, REALLY don't want to pay and install a new radio because a tiny little wire is bad.
Thanks for any suggestions

Chances are you won't be able to fix it yourself, most radios today contain "Logic switches" they just send a pulse to an IC chip that determines what mode you are selecting. If you have a really good electronics repair shop they might be able to fix it but most likely you are going to have to replace the unit, a new one is going to be rather expensive, a used one you never know if your getting a good one or one with problems all it's own, or you could go aftermarket ie car toys, best buy, etc. personally I would go aftermarket, they have some really good equipment out there now.
