Default Radio buttons failure

Hey, guys. I have my radio buttons (stock radio) programmed to go to certain stations, but today it all went wrong. I hit button 5, and nothing happened. Then I tried to seek down, and nothing happened. I can't seek down, manually tune down, or choose my presets except for 1. I can only seek up, and this is extremely inconvenient.

However, the radio had just before then been working fine, and it abruptly quit. I believe the buttons came back to life, but I'm concerned. Then again, it is a 1994 stock radio on a 14C/~50F day. Will this recur, or at least has it happened to anyone else?

Thanks.

I'd think it has to do with the extreme cold

50*F is extreme cold ? anyways, it sounds like maybe one of the control cables to the faceplate came loose, or there'* a problem with a circuit board in the radio. See if it continues and next time it does it, see if hitting bumps in teh road makes it work again?
