    As the title states, I think my radio is possessed! :rolleyes: My radio has decided to change stations whenever it feels like it! At first I thought maybe it didn't like the song playing ;), but then it continued to go backwards one station at a time roughly every 45 seconds. :eek: Called the dealership and this was a first for them. Have to take it in for a checkup.

    There is probably a radio flash for that.

    That's what I'm hoping.

    One day I watched mine turn the volume up on its own. Just sitting after start up. Only that one time though.

    That's crazy too. At least it only happened once.
    Took mine in for a flash. No good. They have to order a new steering wheel control.

    I had a garmin GPS do something similar once. Kept jumping between map and menu.
    I was gonna yank it off the dash, and through it out the window, but the $250 I had spent on it the night before told me to be patient.

    Did that for 30 minutes and quit. That was 2 yrs ago. Still using it today.

    I think the touch screen goes weird, or, the clock spring has a malfunction. That would be the same reason sometimes an up shift command will cause a downshift. The steering wheel controls only change resistance in the wire. So, a 5ohm drop, might be a downshift and a 6ohm drop a up shift. A 10ohm drop might change the radio volume, a 20ohm drop the station.......

    Just my two cents.
