Is she turning the Radio out using the volume/power knob or just turning off
the ignition?
If the former I have no idea if the latter she probably has the volume
turned up loud and it's the sudden loss of power to the speakers causing
them to move/relax. Happens with all speakers.

That is the reason the power knob is also the volume knob. You have to turn
the volume down before the power goes off.

Re: strange noise!

G'day,

Does she have the 'Traffic Alert' function switched on? (See a 'TA' in the
radio display)

Regards
Pauly

Re: strange noise!

OK all you bright sparks problem cured!

Clip came lose under dashboard fell into radio and kept shorting it out
until eventually there was big bang and loads of smoke. All came to a bit of
a head today when fire brigrade called out. Wife and car was escorted, blue
lights and all, to the local lookers garage nearby. Fortunately car intact
but a lesson to be learnt for all those disco II TD5 2003 owners out there!!
watch out watch out there's a clip about!
