    Last week my stock radio started having an issue where the radio station will jump around at random... for example, if I'm on 93.7, it will jump to 93.5 or 93.9. Taping the display screen puts it back in it's place temporally (which also seems to work to temporally fix the volume issue), but it doesn't fix it permanently... not that I would expect it to. Just curious if anyone else has had this problem?

    it happened to me twice on different days. I was going to take it in under warranty, but it hasn't happened again for months now.

    I think I understand what you're talking about. I don't remember having it in my truck, but potentiometers with the 'detents' on them are known to do that kinda thing often. I doubt theres anything you can do about it, or toyota for that matter.

    I've had this problem a couple of times but it looks like it stopped. I asked the dealer about it, they said if it continues they will replace it for me.

    Maybe the truck is trying to tell you you're listening to the wrong music :p

    Kinda what I thought, but it didn't seem to help for me.

    I hope not, it's bad enough that the girlfriend always changes the station :(
