Is there a way to reset the radio?

So nothing "aux" on my stereo works at all. Bluetooth audio (phone works), USB, or aux cable...None of it. The stereo doesn't even acknowledge it exists. It just says no cd inserted. Won't do anything if I hit menu or anything. So I need to reset my stereo. I was going to pull the fuse, but it looks like a pain in the ass. Anyone aware of a way to reset the stereo?

I don't know myself how to do it, but you might need the PDIM module itself disconnected from its power source, and then discharge any current left in it. You might also want to try grounding the USB connection to discharge any static buildup that may have occurred. I think a fuse pull would achieve mostly the same thing, but this would probably be your next recourse.

Grounding the USB connector can WRECK the module. DON'T DO IT.

I took it to the dealer and they reprogrammed it. Back to normal, for now. I only have about 2K left on the warranty...I'd be really pissed if it happens after the warranty.
