    Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    Hi All, i've clocked about 200 miles on my new 997tt that I just received a week ago. Love the car ... it's an incredible machine. Can't wait for the break-in period to be over so I can really see what she can do.

    Anyway, my question is whether anybody else has had problems with the radio randomly changing stations periodically (every 10-60 minutes)? It also swaps between the CD and Radio randomly as well. I'm wondering if my K40 is somehow putting a signal through the electronics causing the radio to swap stations or inputs (CD->radio etc.).

    Any thoughts/feedback?

    wow...i thought i was losing my mind before reading your post!! I've had mine about 9 months and i few times (less then 10) my station changed by itself. I was wondering what happened, but i guess it could be some kind of internal screw up now that i see your post!! I wonder how many others are having this problem?

    Re: Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    Porsche radios have always been a bit quirky,

    check with your dealer there may be a TSB addressing the issue.

    Re: Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    FWIW, maybe review the manual where it discusses headings similar to "auto station search" or "set up?" Worth a try - before heading to dealer.

    Re: Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    Yep, have had exactly the same problem. I haven't done anything about it.

    Re: Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    Yup, it happens all the time to me at the same spot. The manual mentions it can happen in certain circumstances.

    And I wonder what those circumstances would be?

    Re: Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    it happens in my 06 C4S Cab all the time.. If a station is weak (even momentarily) the radio will go to the next station. It is ridiculous... Even if you manually tune the station it will do that...

    Re: Problem with Radio Randomly Changing Stations

    Does it always go to the same station? If so, according to my dealer, it has something to do with the traffic program that some stations send out.
