2011 Honda Odyssey: The Sound of Silence

December 15, 2011

Odyssey Radio Screen.jpg

I'm playing my morning podcast in the Odyssey and then nothing. The info is still showing on the screen, but there is no more sound. I try a different podcast, still no sound. Maybe I pressed some radio mute button, but it doesn't exist. I go to a different radio source, but there is music-a-playing out of XM. I unplug and replug in the USB wire and it works again, picking up later than when it conked out, meaning sound stopped transmitting even though the track kept playing. Several minutes later it cuts out again. Bugger.

That's enough of that, switch to the aux jack, problem quasi-fixed. Not sure if this is an issue with our Odyssey, or if it's the faulty result of Odyssey + iPhone + specific Apple wire = Not Working.
