Radio Defaults to AM everytime I turn truck off

Has anyone had this problem. I have a 2017 6.7 lariat and the radio always defaults to AM when I turn the truck off and start it back up.* My sirius is also constantly acquiring satellite signal.* *I constantly comes in and out under clear sky's with no obstructions.

I would try to use the forced reset of the SYNC. Try holding down the Power button and the FWD Seek > button till you see the screen resets.

But radio still changes to different station on start up. In for an unrelated recall now, see if the dealer can find anything

Sorry the simple fix didn't work. At least it's getting fixed now.

Replacing the apim fixed my radio issue. Good to get done under warranty
