Has anyone had this problem before? I will have the radio on one of my presets and it will start changing the station on its own! It will change up and down 1 station or so (ie 92.5 to 92.3 to 92.5 to 92.7). This can last 15-30 seconds at a time for no rhyme or reason.<br>I have taken it in to the dealership twice and both times had the software updated and that helped for a little while. Now at 76,000 miles I am out of standard warranty and not sure if my VIP covers it or if they can really even "fix" it.<br>I took a video with my cell phone of what it does and will post on Youtube when it is back up from maintenance.<p>Any ideas? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

This happened in my S40 as well... I don't know what to tell you... I would just push some buttons, turn it off and turn it back on... It was just something I learned to live with... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

Happened with my 60 too. Brought it into dealer and they replaced the entire radio b/c it was a known issue. It was under warranty, not sure if your VIP will cover it. Doesn't hurt to ask.

I've had this happen to me when listening to cd's, where it would change tracks randomly +/- 1 track. check the tuning knob and make sure its on a (can't explain well) definite setting when you turn it. Seemed to fix my problem also.

I would also advice that you make sure you have the latest ICM SW as many random ICM/audio failures have been fixed in recent years.
