Radio not on (battery?)

2003 Nissan Altima

This morning when I started my car, it started fine but the radio was not on and wouldn't go on. Yes...I even pushed the button (so it's not a defective user). I actually pushed the button a million times! I then turned the car off and started it again and it worked. Could it just be a battery issue or something else? Something that's probably no biggie?

I was all set to say, "check the fuse", but obviously that's not it since it worked the second time. Probably a one-time glitch.

Was there anything in the radio display like the clock showing?

Nope...no clock...nothing. Seemed like it was just dead... None of the buttons would do anything. No light displays on the radio was on...

I could settle for a glitch. I just didn't want to be talking to myself all the way to work or humming to nothing.

I have had this happen occasionally when the key did not fully return to the run position after engaging the starter.

This morning as a matter of fact when nothing wants to move at -27 degC!

Burrrrrh!

I don't think it gets THAT cold over her in sunny CA but it felt that cold! I'm sure the key was fully turned. I had the car running for 5 minutes to get warm before I got in.
