    Mods, feel free to move this if it belongs in audio/video section.

    New problem came up this afternoon. I started up the truck and my radio was off. The power button didn't respond at all. After about 30 mins of driving, I noticed the display was back on. All my presets were erased. All buttons were now responsive, but I had no sound at all. I tried switching to the CD player and it worked fine all the way home.

    When I got home, I cut the truck off, turned it back on and the same problem started over again -- no power and it won't cut on. So I turn the switch to Accessory and it sounds like the CD changer is cycling through the entire tray. After about 5 secs, the noise stops, and I can turn the power on, but again there's no sound.

    This has baffled me. This is the first issue of any kind with my truck. I'm calling the dealer in the morning since I'm still in the 36 mo./36,000 mile range. Hopefully it's a simple fix.

    Anyone with ideas, please pass them along.

    I wouldnt worry about it. If it's under warranty, let toyota deal with it.

    It is a problem that many have ran into if you search you will find numerous rants on it.
