    I'd guess you have a problem with your clock spring.

    Agree with greenac, not familiar with this model however it probably still uses a "clockspring" assembly as a means of electrically connecting the wheel mounted audio controls to the fixed wiring harness in the column. Maybe the "common" connection going through the clockspring assembly is making/breaking contact causing such erratic behaviour of the audio controls. My VYII had same issue a few years back.

    I have seen this once before and it was the buttons on the steering wheel that were faulty. The springs in the buttons where a bit weak and turning the wheel or going over big bumps would cause the radio stations to change.
