Blinking outside temp light is an indication you need to pull climate
control codes to find the error indicated:

Aftermarket radio with stock speakers (sedan?) may indicate some sort of
impedance-matching adapter that perhaps has given up.

Could be whoever "installed" your radio attached a wire to something in the
climate control harness where "perhaps" they should not have.
