sound system went nuts

After engine shutdown, with a droid4 phone NOT connected to Sync, the touch screen display started fluttering, and the speakers began pounding without the radio on. This went on for about 20 -30 secs until i started the engine and then shut everything off. Anyone else have this or similar experience?

Clearly, you've got Christine's younger and prettier sister on your hands.

If I had to venture a guess though, it sounds like a grounding problem, I.E. the radio's grounding cable/wire has broken or come undone. That will cause some really weird stuff with the radio itself.

Granted, this is from experience with a 70's model truck, so... Take the advice with a grain of salt.

Hi, Clemenza -

I'd like to look into this further. Please send me your VIN via PM.

I'm not here on the weekends so if I don't hear from you before 4:30 p.m. ET. today, I'll look for your reply on Monday.

Jaclyn
