Hello and thanks for using JustAnswer! My name is ***** ***** GM factory trained technician. I will be happy to help you with your Acadia. I have seen this happen before, it is somewhat common for the radio amplifier to have a intermittent fault causing the symptoms you have described. The blinker sounds are also produced from the audio system, this is why they stop working also. It is very likely the radio amplifier will need to be replaced. I have attached a link for the part. It is located under the dash and is difficult to replace. Also the amplifier must be programmed to the vehicle after it is replaced or it will not work. Some independent shops and all dealerships can reprogram the amplifier for around 80- to 100 dollars. If you could kindly rate my service it would be very appreciated so i can receive credit. I will continue to work with you even after rated, and get notifications about any other questions you may have. I only strive for excellent service, Thank you for being a great customer.Derek W
