Hi All,

1997 Taurus. When starting it may or may not crank slowly but the radio will switch to station 101.1 of which there is no station for that in this area and the volume will switch to the one third position.

Could this just be a low battery?

It could be the battery. Do the presets reset to factory also? We used to have an Aerostar and for like a couple weeks, the radio would tune to static and the presets got reset. Then one day the can wouldn't start and we took the battery to Kragens and they said it was deader than a doorknob. Funny thing was, it was driven for like 5 minutes before it died.

No the presets are all ok. It is just the volume and switching stations that is weird. You would think that as cold as it has been around here the battery would quit.
