RD3 Radio stations selection problem.

Created: 11.10.2003
Updated: --.--. ----

Peugeot 206, 207, 406 with RD3 radio, Clarion or Valeo.

When attempting to select a preset station with the buttons on the radio or the steering wheel stalk, the memorized station display screen keeps flicking back without locking in for the usual 10 sec. It can at times be very difficult or impossible to make a selection as the radio bounces back to the same station.

We suspect this phenomenon is caused by changes being made to the transmitted -Station Information Data.- It is not a defect in the radio.
Find more information and links about RDS on our FAQ page.

Re-enter all your stations in all memorized positions. This should completely rectify the problem.
