2009 Malibu Wakesetter Head Unit Volume Stuck


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I have an 09 Malibu Waksetter VLX and the stereo is all stock. The head unit volume up button no longer is clicking and is almost like it is stuck down. Every once in a while it will automatically turn up the volume on the stereo to full volume which is a problem. I have taken the head unit apart and the button is not fixable.

Is there a new inexpensive head unit that you guys recommend (would love to have a bluetooth feature)?

Is there a way to get another stock one?

Any advice is appreciated to remedy this annoyance.

Hey Jace,

Just went through a no power up issue with my stock stereo in our 09 VTX. Unfortunately there is not a head unit that is compatible anymore. Something to do with the interface code. I searched everywhere for a replacement stock unit and couldn’t find one. Do the MUX buttons still control the stereo okay or is it completely unresponsive? To solve my issue I ended up having to replace the media box down by the amps and the remote head unit. Added a second head unit by the throttle too so I could control the stereo while driving vs having to reach around to the bow walkthrough. Much happier with the newer equipment but obviously a more expensive solution. Maybe eBay or another Bu member might have one laying around.
