Shouted at to renew subscription

New Contributor

Every year the OnStar audio system springs to life a month before renewal and shouts at max radio volume to renew.  It's timed at the worst possible moment - just as you are pulling out into traffic.    I might be safer to let it expire.

But for realistic solutions, I suspect the global OnStar volume is fixed too high.  I may check that out when I get time.

It turns that OnStar's volume is separate from the radio (for no good reason).   Apparently it was set that way by pranking service personnel.  (because by the time it goes off blasting at full volume, the one who set it is long gone).   I'll have to put that on my checklist after service so the pranker can be caught!

This is not the experience we want you to have with your OnStar hardware, Mike. If you need any additional assistance regarding in-vehicle voice messaging, please email us at with ATTN: OnStar Community/MikeN_7700 in the subject headline.
