What did my Rav4 do with my radio stations?

I own a 2006 Toyota Rav4. On Sunday I discovered it had conveniently updated my clock. I later discovered it also wiped out all my programmed radio stations. I am now in the process of having to program my car radio all over again. I have owned this car for over a year now and this is the first time this has happened to me. Has this happened to anyone else? What is going on?

Sounds suspiciously like someone unhooked and then reattached your battery cables.

I live out in the boondocks.

You are connecting the clock update to the loss of presets but you really don’t have any technical proof that the situations are related. Loss or radio presets can be caused by an issue with the constant voltage source,an internal failure within the radio (this is my bet) or someone “hacking” into your radio(and perhaps your bank account) through your tire pressure monitoring system :0).

Re-set your presets and motor on.

Thanks for the input. I will be watching (I mean listening) to see if happens again.
