In my experience these Blau units ('84 through '86) are notoriously
intermittent in electrical circuitry, have very poor tape transports and
sound terrible. Other than that they are really nice. I have gotten them
to come back to life by opening them up and cleaning all of the
connectors, but your time is probably better spent just getting a better
radio unless you don't mind the channel changing that you mention.
'91 200 tq with Sony sound (That was a fun install)
'86 4kq same old Blue sound.
'84 4k  had Sony sound 'till a local punk liberated it.
