Car radio jumping presets
 
I have an 09' Dodge Ram with the stock Sirius radio, This morning on the way to work my radio would randomly jump from one preset channel to another. It doesn't seem to have any rhyme or reason. At first I thought it might be happening when I hit a bump but it happens on smooth roads to, but totally randomly. Does anyone have any idea what might cause this?

Also, has anyone purchased an after market Sirius radio? I've been thinking of changing out my stock speakers and possibly adding a small amp. This might just be the excuse I've been looking for.

Thanks.

My wife's car radio was freaking out the other day. Its a UConnect model so might be somewhat like your truck's. I pulled its fuse and reset it. Been working fine ever since.

Pulled the fuse and was still jumping presets. I read on a Dodge forum that it happened to someone else and it ended up the dial was between detents. I spun my dial and hit a preset and it hasn't jumped since.

Weird.

I have a remote control in my truck. I usually put it in the cupholder in my console. A couple of times I've dropped my phone on the remote and it started running though the presets or sources, etc. Freaked me out at first until I figured out what was going on.
