Question about 2006 Hyundai Accent
One radio station keeps changing. If I turn on the radio station, about 10-15 seconds later, the radio retunes itself and moves to a different station. The radio station works perfectly in many places. I live in a town and Beat (the radio station that always changes) works perfectly in the town, no frequency issues or anything, it's perfectly clear but it just keeps changing in my car. If I drive outside of the town I can list to Beat easily, without any interruptions, it works perfectly. I don't know what is wrong with it. It used to work perfectly until a little while ago when suddenly, any time I turned on Beat, after a few seconds it would just retune itself. Help Please
Hi there is a option in the settings to automatically search for the station if frequency changes try turning it off to see if that helps

I would look for a ground that is inadequate.
If any part of this is operating essentially without shielding due to a bad ground, then cell towers, a radio or TV station transmitter, CBs, land mobile radio, amateur radio - any of these can inject enough signal to drive modern electronics completely bananas.
The onboard electronics used for just about everything that is remotely controlled by switches generates a ton of digital garbage and can interfere with anything.
The kind of problem you are experiencing started when we stopped using vacuum tubes 50 years ago operating at high voltages and started using semiconductors that use much lower voltages.
A tech with a common multimeter should be able to locate the missing ground connection without too much trouble.

I had problems with my tiburon gt when I first bought it. Radio would turn on randomly. I looked around though and found rings right above the shifter where he would set his coffee in the morning because his cups wouldn't fit. I bet they would spill now and then and ruined the radio. Simply replacing it should not cause a problem but if you have the radio out get a flashlight and take a look at the wires in the back. I had a friend whos radio would not turn off even with the key out. There was a vacuum line behind his player and it rubbed on some wires in the back and caused him to have a short. Also if you have the factory sub in the back you should still have use of it with a new head unit.

SOURCE: no sound from new stereo
check the speakers in the rear deck, in the rear hatch or trunk, often the two wires that come out of the speaker touch if that happens it will short out the speaker drivers in the radio most times no permanant damage will occur. separate the wires so they do not touch,or touch the metal speker base, that may not be the problem but its a start..
