There's no way this story will make me look good so I'll just be honest
One evening, while my boyfriend was inside Dairy Queen ordering us some blizzards, the red glow of my radio caught my attention and before long I was randomly mashing buttons to see what they would do. By the time he returned to the car I had somehow activated the P-type feature and was unable to disengage it.
As far as I can tell, the P-type feature allows you to surf for stations of whichever programming persuasion you choose which I suppose could be useful but it's really not something I'm interested in. Unfortunately this setting has taken control of my radio. For no reason my stereo will just randomly display P-type, thereby preventing me from using the pre-set (1-6) buttons on my steering wheel while simultaneously either raising or lowering the volume. My clock also stops displaying as well.
I read through the owner's manual and it implies that P-type can be turned on and off by simply pushing the P-type button which in a way is true because pushing the button at least temporarily stops it. For some reason though, the P-type setting seems to be the default. Every time I start my car it seems the P-type gremlin just sits and waits for me to be distracted before making an appearance. Oftentimes it will even give me a false sense of security, making me believe I've won, before popping up to say hello.
So I beg...how do I permanently turn the P-type feature off?! Is there even some easy way for me to just return to the default factory settings? Really...I'm willing to tweak my audio settings and reset all of my buttons if I can regain control over the P-type troll!!
thank you thank you thank you
