Stereo on full volume, then fixes itself

After trying to adjust the volume and the fade/balance to no avail, I shut the car off and opened my door so that the stereo would fully shut down. I let it sit for a minute figuring it was just your typical MFT/Sync brain-fart. When I turned the car back on, it was still blasting at full volume. I then tried the factory reset option, but that didn't work either. I was able, however, to flip the source over to A/V for no sound.

This morning, I got into my car to head to work (a 1 hour drive into Los Angeles w/o raido = no bueno) and figured I would try to flipping back over to my FM presets to see if the problem magically fixed itself. Abra-ka-fricking-dabra it was back to normal.

IdunnoWTF happened. I've never heard of this problem from all my lurking here. Perhaps I missed a post or two somewhere.

I am still taking my car in today to get its first service done and to have them check out some suspension creak coming from the front. I'll be sure to bring this issue up, although I have serious doubts they'll actually acknowledge my complaint.
So yesterday we took the Focus to the mountains and stopped for a bit of shopping on the way home. Everything was fine all day. Got in the car, started it up and this happend. Full volume right front speaker and no control, the volume bars showed nothing, as in zero. Had to shut the radio off. Drove the 5 minutes home, tried it again; same thing. Got out of the car, locked it, unlocked it and same thing. Then, this AM on the way to work, all is fine.

I did notice the door wouldn't unlock without pressing the key fob and the proximity sensors were not as loud as normal when entering my garage yesterday. This morning, all is normal.

So I found this thread, but don't see any resolution. I have the latest software. Anyone know anything further?
