Dead/dying radio. The Delta's suck, and this is their typical
failure mode.

The dealer will replace it for about $75, but why bother? It's
an inferior unit. When mine died, I pitched it, and put in a
sweet Kenwood CD player. No other changes needed (the stock speakers
are really good with a decent head unit). $300 and 2 years later, 
I'm enjoying much better sound than before....
