2016 ltz

Just bought a new LTZ, the salesman did a poor job of explaining the controls in this car which almost resembles the cockpit of a 747. So I've been reading the manual !!! EKKK! two issues I can't seem to figure out.
1. when I turn off the car (and the radio is turned off as well. ) every so often when I start the car the radio comes back on?? I'm sure its off and not in the mute position, dash says audio "off" but still it comes back on. any suggestions>?
2. the air conditioning according to the manual, has a "eco" mode, it says to press the AC once (light is amber) then again with 5 seconds the light should turn "green" for the eco mode, mine doesn't do that, it just goes off.
So far the ride is fantastic, just getting used to all these electronics is kind of over the top for me.

Last I want to do is give bad advice

I would start with this and I am not saying this will work... Turn off Car, Leave door open for 10 minutes and then Enter car again start the car and see if that helps... If it don't

It maybe a problem with the Radio and a way that could be to fix it is to Remove the Battery Cable an leave it off for a few minutes.. I know not everyone wants to reprogram the radio stations but I have heard this could fix it...

I am not 100% on this but the ECO from what I know was done away with in 2015 and a AC with Humidity Sensor was added. so I would guess that is just an over sight on your manual...

Just found out from dealer its a universal problem and no fix for it as of yet. issued july 2016 #PIC6186C

states "Radio turns on unwanted at start up"

seems strange to me that they dont know how to remedy this and its been on going for over a year.
doesn't give me confidence on GM products at all

Oh the horror!
That issue should be GM's top priority .. Who needs correctly functioning air bags or ignition switches

Lucky me...so far only effects 60% of them, I never heard of a car company that is aware of a problem, and has no idea how to correct it.

New update came out in march but i was told by infotainment department at gm that most people don't have the update and most new cars aren't shipping with it. Might be worth a shot if you don't have it.

I was told by the service manager that since this issue is not universal its not a top priority. Looks like Ill be making a call my self to GM customer service.

Have you been to the 9th Generation Discussion page on the site?

There are discussion on such things as

1. My Links problems that owners have which Chevy calls a computer glich...

2. There's a rear window deck warp problem which Chevy calls an inherent Impala problem.

3. There are two different vibration problems, both of which Chevy call them "normal"...
Vibration problems were brought to Chevy's attention back in 2014.
In 2013, Cadillac had the same vibration problem, they chose to solve the problem.
It's 2016, Chevy refuses to acknowledge the problems.
NOTE: A forum member test drove a 2017 Impala and could feel the same type of vibration
that is in his 2015....

So , YES, we have heard of such a company...it's called Chevrolet.....

I still have Pandora on mine too. Works great with my Samsung s7edge. Just wish gm would make more apps available. Seems like a waste to just have a couple apps as an option

Most of the limitations are what are set by android or apple.
