I have 2005 60R. With 80k miles. All is well but the radio is misbehaving. Th issues is that it switches between the various fm/am/cd settings on it's own. Pushing the FM button will get it back briefly. There is no clear pattern to the issue. Any ideas??

  • Thanks, let's get started. If I upload dropbox links, without the app use the box in the top right for direct download.

Although others have reviewed this question and passed on it. I am willing to try and assist if help is still needed.

The issue is as described above. The radio will sporadically shift between FM 1,2 or 3, am or cd modes. Pressing FM again will get it back to FM1 but only for a while and it will shift again??

Do you have steering wheel controls for your radio on your model and if so does this seem to be affected by steering inputs?
