    Hi there
    I have Ve commodore and I was playing around with the Ve iq systems..
    and now I can’t get my radio to work..
    watching your vid you said not to touch tuner aglinment. Well I did lol…
    How do I fix my radio and get it working again??

      Hey! From what we know, park the car outside away from objects, turn the radio on and enter engineering mode on the IQ. Run the tuner alignment and leave the car alone for at least one hour. This should ‘align’ the tuner, and your problem should be fixed.

    I can’t get the factory reset to start.
    Can you please give me any tips?

      Hi Bill – We’ve seen this issue before, and unfortunately don’t have a solution.
