Blinking radio / sound cutting out
Just went through 30 miles of gravel road on the reservation and now my radio is blinking and the sound is cutting out. I have a lockpick installed in the GC that has been working well for about 2 months now. Also, my center console accessory outlet seems to be dead. The strange thing is the radio didn't start blinking up until 40 or so minutes later while I was in the parking lot with the ACC on and have an inverter plugged in.

Should I try and pull the radio fuse? I'm 300 miles from home :(

It could possibly be the fuse, but it very well may be a loose wire. Sounds to me like you've got a connection that's become compromised and it's causing electrical gremlins.

No power at all now on the radio, fuse is good. The fuse for the armrest power outlet is blown but that is another issue that I just noticed.

Just an update, unplugging the lockpick (rebooting) revived the media center. I haven't driven around yet to see if the fix is permanent. I need to move it to glove compartment for easy access in the future.
