Crazy OEM radios. Take it home and take it apart on your work bench and let it dry out. Reinstall and should be good to go.

Check firstly with your auto insurer as your coverage should include the radio for you. As well, don’t go into a panic thinking about any supposed increase in your insurance premium as this is NOT necessarily the case... one buys insurance in case it is needed. Good luck and post back with whatever route you take ie: Tom’s suggestion or insurance.
