I have been running into this alot. I Have the Base GX (canada) with the con package, AC and auto. Once in a while my whole dash resets. My radio turns off and then greets me with that soon to be infamous hello message. The clock also resets (to 10:10 for some reason). Anyone else run into this problem or have any guesses? I'm going to go to the shop either this week or next week, but since its not a constant error and appears random, I don't know how long it will take to fix. :cry:

Take your car back to the dealer man... its something intermittant in the wiring. I'm guessing a loose fuse but it could be actual electrical wires

Ive seen this happen with many of the newer Chevy's (mostly Impala and Silverado) where the factory HU would reset every so often. One of my dealers found out it was a bad connection at the fuseblock. Another one found it was the HU itself.

Take it in and let them check it.

There has been cases (3-4 times) that the radio station changed by itself. But it hasn't happened recently and is quite random for me. Dunno if it is related.

That could be cause of the controls on the steering wheel, maybe?

The wheel may be rubbing the buttons, or shorting a wire, when you turn.
