Is it only the radio, or does it do it also when playing a cd, or ipod?
If it is just the radio, is it both am and fm, or any and all stations?

Well as a 2008, I'd take it in for a warranty claim. The worst that they can do, is indicate no trouble found, but then you have it on record as having this problem during the warranty period. I'd try to notice whether when this happens, whether the whole radio is loosing power, or it just appears that the output gets lost. Start documenting how many times this is happening and when it happens. Intermittent problems which a dealership can't recreate, are sometimes hard to get them to fix it.
I had a little bit similar problem once years ago with a Chrysler mini-van, I took it in and they ordered a replacement radio. Never had the problem after.

I have a 2007 Tahoe doing the same anoying thing going from stereo to "mono". The dealer replaced the stereo 3 times, fm tuner, coax and rear window which contains the antenna. I did HOURS of research and am finding that it is most likely the rear antenna which is directional and looses reception. Mine only does this while moving not parked. The dealer told me it's a GM "glitch" and basically we all must live with it. While they had the vehicle I had a 2009 Suburban rental and it did the exact same thing. Car Toys recommended a power antenna I don'y know what to do now.

#56 of 58 After rear-ended, no song/artist identification
May 18, 2012 (4:22 am)
My wife has a 2008 LS and she got rear-ended last month. We just got it back from the body shop, but now the radio no longer lists the artist and song when playing FM radio stations. I'm about to go digging in the manual, but does anyone know if this could have happened when they disconnected the battery perhaps, or is there a chance that the impact caused this to malfunction?
#58 of 58 Intermittent High Frequency Noise Coming From Rear
Oct 23, 2013 (12:18 pm)
I have a 2012 Tahoe LT with 23K miles on it.
I have an intermittent high pitched/frequency noise coming from the back left portion of the vehicle. The noise started so soft that my husband could not hear it. Eventually, the noise became louder and more frequent that he could hear it.
Took to the dealer and was able to create the noise. They replaced the amp. Took care of the problem for about 30 miles. Then the noise came back - although, softer.
The noise is generated most often during the following situations, but not always:
*When turn signal is turned on. The sounds turns off when the turn signal flicks back to the normal position.
* Switching channels in XM radio (between each station there is a silent pause, so you can hear the noise more easily).
*Turning radio volume up
*In the middle of driving on the highway. Radio does not have to be on.
*The car has to be on for sound to occur.
Now to top off this whole problem... Today, we drove about 45 miles away from our house. Same noise came on and off about 15 times in our trip. Then we parked the car, it rested about 90 minutes. We drove home and the noise only occurred once (when we turned radio volume up) during our whole 45 miles trip home.
My husband is thinking it could be the capacitor??? What do you think? Has this happened to you?
