Volume intermittent, volume drops out, comes back when car is restarted for a short time?
This was an interesting problem! The stereo is programmed to communicate with the car computer. (There may be a glitch in the Matrix). Disconnect both main battery terminals and touch them together. This discharges the system. Reconnect battery terminals may reset the system. The problem should correct itself.
