New problem just happened. Opened the door, got in and started the car... as soon as the radio turned on there was an extremely loud static noise coming from the speakers. All I could do was turn the volume all the way down to make it stop. Also, with the volume turned completely down, anytime i touched the screen it would make the loud static noise again for a split second.
Doesn't sound like the ghost speaker problem as this didn't happen until I turned the car on.
