Lately, I have been having a problem with my radio presets. Sometimes when I start my car I notice that ALL of my presets have been reset, even the EQ settings.

It only happens when it rains. never when it's nice out. Has anyone else been having this problem?

I'd start simple. Check your battery terminals. I had a similar problem. The battery terminal was not tightened onto the battery.

If not the battery, then start looking for leaks and/or bad wiring. The fact that it only happens when it rains points to a short somewhere. Is anything else resetting? Like the clock, trip OD, speed/mpg averages?
Maybe water is getting in around the antenna mount? If water is leaking it should leave some kind of a trail. Either a path through dust or a dirty path through clean spots (leaves crud behind when it evaporates).
