Has anyone that has had the fm fade TSB applied and got the new radio had the problem come back? I got my new radio installed about a month ago and although the problem isn't nearly as bad as it was before, the reception does still fade in and out on occasion. Just curious if anyone else has had this problem. I haven't bothered talking to the dealer yet, been real busy.

I had mine changed back in August, and have been very happy with it since.

Had mine switched out too and the fade problem has not returned. I assume you are talking about the fade between Stereo and Mono; and not the speed sensitive volume (SSV) that seems to be inconsistent at controlling the volume (I leave the SSV off).

I also have the SSV off, don't care for the way it acts.

yeah, I do have the SSV off, it's pretty much a worthless feature and seems fairly inconsistant. With the new radio it still seems like the treble is fading in and out, it's more an annoyance now than anything else. I'll probably worry about it the next time I'm at the dealer for something else.

I think the deal with my SSV is that I don't crank up the volume much (don't max mine above volume setting 12). When noise levels in the cab go up, the SSV increases the volume too loud for my taste. So I'm sure it works fine for most people. I'm just one of those rare people that likes my driving music to remain in the background.

I almost added a line in my last post saying that I'm not an old fuddy dutty, but I figured I'd let you all have some fun and take a stab at me. I'm only 36, well 37 next Saturday, so maybe "old school" would be the PC term. However, my hearing is excellent (tested yearly because of my job) and I score much higher then the 20 year olds I work with. It used to piss me off when I'd get into one of our pool work trucks after they used it and the volume would be jacked up really loud. I bitched to one guy about him being deaf so he jokingly kept leaving the volume way up on a rap station. I had enough of that so after I used the truck one day I set all the radio presets to the Mexican and Korean channels, turned the volume up where he liked it, then pulled both the volume and tuning dials off.

THAT's A GOOD ONE! I'm pretty much the same way with my music....very seldom is it higher than 10-15. And, I'm only 34! :eek:

hell, I'm young and don't crank my music up very loud... it takes away from the driving experience. I like to hear the road and the wind and the exhaust note, that's the real music.

Yes the 04's with RF system had some issues. Not sure about the 05's

I've been wanting to ask about this on my truck. I have a 2005 Titan that I bought a week ago. My build date is 10/04, so it must have been among the first 2005's built because I have seen others with a 2004 truck and the same 10/04 build date. I know I have some 2004 parts like the steel differential cover.
Anyway, the radio on my truck sounds like crap. CD's sound great, but my FM reception sounds muffled like a speaker in a barrel. I have seen the TSB, but as far as I know, it is only for 2004 trucks. Does this sound like the problem that others are having? I don't have the stereo fading in and out problem, just my radio sounds bad all the time. BTW, I have the 6 CD changer without the RF option.
