Later in the day the temperatures rose to approximately 25 degrees at which point the stereo worked fine. Is this normal? I'm assuming it was the factory amplifier acting up but haven't experienced this before, even in my other vehicles at the same temperature.
When it got to 3 degrees F here a few weeks ago I had the same experience with my 2004 Bose system. Very erie as the screechung circled around the Suround system. Shutting off the system kept thing quiet in my car though. And when it got warmer that day everything was fine and it has not happened again even with the current cold snap.
So I am not concerned about it.
