Random deleting of saved radio stations

Post by SailorDoc » Mon Jul 09, 2018 4:07 pm

My MY 18 DS has developed an odd quirk over the last few weeks. It keeps randomly deleting the saved DAB radio stations. I’m not sure if it happens on every restart yet but will check this today. Anybody got any clues before I book in to the Stealer?

It shouldn't, as they are stored in a ROM. Even after a battery disconnection or SW update they should still be stored. Get it in for a check.

Hi
Mine did this some time ago and a software update sorted it out along with a few other niggles. ;)

My 17MY has now started doing this; It's pretty annoying, to say the least.

Losing radio stations is one thing. Not being able to listen to them on my non-Meridian audio system is something else. :evil:

The only time this happened to my ds was when the AA plugged in their code reader.

No, my car has not had anything attached to the OBD port. Still happening, but not at every engine start. Bizarre.

Happens about every month to me, did on my second car as well. One first you couldn't actually store any stations unless the engine was running! If you are really lucky it also resets all the volumes and sat nav settings back to default.

Long since give up on this car, not premium and actually fairy s*** when you dig below the surface. Roll on September and my new car.

I haven't had this problem on the DS, but have periodically had over the last 5 years or so something on the FL2 (Meridian Sound System 825w) which may/may not correlate.

Randomly, and for no known issue whatsoever, when I turn on the Audio system in that vehicle, my pre-sets display as a bank of 6 boxes filled with ---- in each one. A momentary press of each box not only tunes to the previously stored station, it also restores the station name over the dashes. I have to go through this palava every couple of months...some on Freel2 think its battery charge related, but given that I keep mine on a C-tek trickle charger when not in use find that somewhat hard to believe.

Just as a matter of interest, what exactly does your screen display (or not as the case maybe) and does touching the blanks restore the pre-programmed stations by any chance?

Bizarrely, Radio 1 has never been deleted, even though all of the other presets have been! All apart from the first saved station (Radio 1) would show - - - . Tried pressing some of those just now - nothing happens. However, it doesn’t seem to have reset again over the last few days so have stored a few stations and will see what happens....
