Hi,here is what we do when we are having quirky electrical problems with the radios in general .Remove both battery cables and hold them together for about a minute or two this drains all capacitors in all components in the car and is sort of a reboot to the system.After this is done you should return to normal operation ,let me know if you are still experiencing problems or you would like to discuss this further,thanks.
