    Anyone else have this problem?I have a 2013 Tacoma with the entune radio and JBL speakers, occasionally it will turn itself off then back on again.I had an automatic headlight kit installed about a month ago,I don't think that has anything to do with it,but,I hope Toyota don't try to blame that for this weird problem, anyone else experience this? thoughts?

    I've had my 2013 with entune for a few days now (totally stock) and notice that happening during my test drive. If I pull up somewhere and stop and then turn on the headlights, about 1 in 5 times the radio would turn off. I have the tow package so it already has the larger alternator and battery. i haven't been able to get it to shutdown on me since the test drive, but I'll sub and post if I can track it down further.

    My 2009 non-Entune did that AND would spontaneously change stations, show weird text (like on the Predator's gauntlet thingy), and when I went to have it replaced, it spontaneously barfed out the CD right when I pulled into the dealership.

    Not the same radio, I know. Just info.

    I read somewhere that it has to do with having to download too much data from your phone ie. call history and text messages. I deleted all my texts and call history and it quit doing it.
