It you can repeat that problem over and over, get it back to the dealer. Obviously something's not wired quite right.

pretty common problem these days,, the radio antenna is part of the rear defroster grid, there is a module that seperates the 12v to power the grid from the actuall rf signal for the radio, the module can cause that issue ,, also we see alot of defroster grids with scratches in the grid that cause an open circuit and no radio ant signal
