#100 of 127 2006 GMC Sierra 1500 Radio has power but won't work
Dec 07, 2011 (6:48 am)
When I went to start my vehicle this morning it barely turned over because the batter didn't have enough juice and when this happened the display went out on the radio. When I hit the tune button the time will pop up but then it just goes back out. I am able to eject cds and insert them into the player so it has power but it won't turn on. I tried unplugging the back of it but thought my there is a way to reset it??????? Someone please help!!!!!

In addition to considering a new battery, a few other factors to keep in mind include a possible tune-up (especially spark plugs/wires: I've experienced difficulty with my vehicle starting before due to this) or the alternator. Please don't consider this an official diagnosis, however. If you should decide to work at a General Motors dealership, send us an email with more information and we'd be happy to assist in the process.

i don't believe there are RCA jacks on these, but you can tap into the speaker wires to send signal to the amp. had an amp installed in my truck and that's how they did it.
#104 of 127 Aux port on 2011 GMC sierra Radio with Nav
Dec 26, 2011 (4:56 am)
I don't have a subscription to XM radio with my 2011 GMC Sierra, instead we have a portable XM radio that we move from vehicle to vehicle. When I plug this portable radio into the Aux port, sound only comes out of the left front speakers (drivers side). Thus sound for music is not good and passenger can't hear it so well unless too loud for driver. Is this normal? I would expect the sound to come from all speakers...

Is it possible to swap the stock radio in our 2010 Silverado for the one in our 2011 GMC Sierra and if it is, how do we do it?
#106 of 127 Ipod songs will not play
Jan 21, 2012 (2:52 pm)
I have a new 2011 Seerra PU with DVD player, onstar and GPS map all built into the radio and screen. I use an Ipod Nano 8g to play most all my music. I have several other devices that play these same Ipods. Including and alpine radio plus the stock radio on my motorcycle. The motorcycle displays the songs and gives me complete control over the Ipod like this radio does. However in my truck about 1/3 of my songs will not play. it is just nothing for the time each song is suposed to play. All my songs are ripped with Itunes and are the AAC audio. Any Ideas what I need to do. The mechanic thinks I need to convert to a differant format or codec but can not tell me which format.

I'm having the same issue with my 06 envoy after changing the battery. I've had it happen a couple times before when i've boosted it where after the boost the radio wouldn't turn on but it would correct itself after i start the engine two or three more times, I'd always assumed that it was some kind of power save feature where the on board computer would detect a low battery and disable the stereo until it had a chance to charge (never really looked into it, might have just been a glitch) but I changed my battery a few weeks ago and it hasn't come back to life yet. Like you said, if i hit the power button the back lights come on, if i hit info the clock comes up for a bit and it has the right time and I can load and unload cd's just fine. I've noticed the security system indicator light doesn't flash either so maybe it's not communicating with whatever unit it compares VIN's with to make sure it's the right head unit. I'm trying to exhaust all options before i bite the bullet and bring it in. Have you had any luck with yours?

Per page 7-36 of the owner's manual, it looks like the supported file types are those with an .mp3 or .wma file extension, or. AAC files stored on an iPod.
Hope this is helpful for you!

I understand wanting to find the root cause on your own, and wish you luck! I wasn't able to find any trouble-shooting resources on my end.
If you do end up having to go in, let us know!
