2017 Yaris: Radio acting up

Hello. I have a 2017 Yaris L with 16K miles on it.

I had the radio replaced shortly after buying the car as it didn't really work well. Today, the "repeat" button starting activating by itself when listening to a podcast in USB mode. When switching modes to radio and CD, the repeat button keeps activating by itself rather maniacally, with a near constant beeping and flashing of the "repeat" button.

Any ideas what could be going on? Thanks.

Yes, if it keeps giving me hell I'll give the dealer a call. Lemon Law might be a stretch, though

Short of some kind of mechanical damage or a spilled soft drink it sounds like a issue for the warranty to resolve.

Is it the touch screen radio ? Have you cleaned the screen

Does the L have audio controls on the wheel if, so they could be faulty

Hi everyone.

Now that it's getting colder, my touchscreen has started to go nuts for a few minutes upon startup. After the cabin warms up, the problems appear to go away. I'm going to talk to the dealer soon, but I'm curious if there's anything else I could/should consider first.

I had the radio replaced once already for a similar issue, fwiw.

Tips are much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi everyone.

Just an update for anyone that may be interested. The dealer is going to put in a new radio again (this will be my second new radio in this car) in hopes the problem goes away.
