    Has anyone else experienced the radio changing to 87.7 FM when
    switching from a normal music CD (not MP3) to the radio? The screen
    will display preset 5 and a frequency of 87.7 FM, which is just
    white-noise up here in cow-hampshire.

    I have tried several times to duplicate this, but it only seems that it
    happens when the car is first started and the CD is turned on directly
    (by pressing "CD" or by normal power button and CD resumes), then
    switched over to the radio (via the FM/AM button). And it only happens
    with a normal CD, not an MP3 compilation.

    Any clues?

    (more thoughts to add to my previous post)

    When switching to FM from audio CD, the radio will display whatever
    preset I had it on last, however, 87.7 FM will be the frequency. If I
    press the preset shown on screen, it will change to the correct
    frequency for that preset. And this only happens after the CD is
    started after the car is started. I can not duplicate this action any
    other time.

    Just another reason to get rid of the crappy factory stereo.

    Sounds like a defective radio. Be sure to explain the necessary steps to
    the dealer so they can verify your radio is defective.

  5. Not that it is of great help, but I agree with that.
