On my 97 Dodge Ram 1500, the radio volume knob is broken. Turning it either direction only raises the volume.

Now I accidently raised the volume too high, and have no way to lower it.

Will disconnecting the battery (or removing the radio fuse) reset the volume? This type of radio has a knob that does not stop when you get to the min or max volume. It can be turned forever in either direction.

    The best I could tell you is to try it. What do you have to lose? Secondarly, I'd bet a used stock head unit would be cheap to replace in this ... that'd solve your problems completely. I'm thinking you'd have to disconnect the battery in the vehicle. I don't know if there's a security aspect to your head unit, though. I'd hate to see you pull the power only to figure out you don't have the security code for it. Nov 30, 2019 at 16:46
