    Very easy fix for this.Problem is bad solder joints.When its cold the solder joints shrinks and makes poor contact.When warm the joints expand and make soild contact.All you have to do is resolder like six joints.

    Alternate Option

    My CD player runs really slow and makes a high pitched noise when the CD starts to spin. I bought a FM interrupter (not those garbage transmitters) for my iPod and it works great. Damn subs need to be replaced if you have stock.

    Mine started doing that about four years ago and went away after my battery charged up a bit. I replaced it with a 1000amp cold start battery and now I just have to clean the terminals every so often. If your battery voltage goes low the radio display goes on the blink. So, sometimes I just have to drive it around a bit to get the charge up or, you might have to replace the battery.

    I'd say clean the battery terminals and try another battery. If that fixes the problem go out a buy a new battery. It's worth a try.....
    Now, if you have extra amps or extra bright lights, slow window motors that cause extra draw to drain the battery down or drop the voltage temporary .... your gonna get the same issues even with a new battery.

    Another good possibility.... I assume they are the LED leads that need to be reflowed?
