    Any chance you're hitting and holding down a steering wheel button (MODE, I think)? That will cause it to beep and turn off. Also a long list of problems with the stock radios so if you're not hitting a button while turning or moving your head you may want to mention if to your local dealer.

    I had it happen to me twice... first time I had no clue but the second time I noticed both times was when I was turning. I hooked my thumb into the crook of the steering wheel next to the button and held it down for the few seconds it took to turn the corner... BEEP - OFF. :eek:
