2008 Cayenne - radio issues

The radio/cd player in my Cayenne, started to dim recently. At times it takes longer to turn on compared to when new.
Would anyone know what causes this condition?
If the radio head unit is going bad, is there an aftermarket replacement?
Thank you
RG

When my 2005 began experiencing electrical gremlins it turned out to be an old battery

Haunted Cayenne; CRAZY Electrical Malfunctions

Hope it is as simple as this

RNajarian,
Thank you for sharing your experience.
I will have the battery checked this weekend.
I have had this Cayenne for 2 years now. I don't know how old the current battery may be.
I appreciate your help.
Thank you
RG

My pleasure. Hopefully it is the battery. If a battery lasts 5-6 years then likely your car is in its second battery. . . . Which means it is 5-6 years old.

there is an ambient light sensor to the upper right of the screen. If that is covered (made dark) the screen will dim.
