I'm not sure you can "deselect" in the sense of making the button un-assigned / empty, but to change the selection just go to the desired station press and hold the applicable memory button.

If you hold down the 1 and 8 keys is should delete them all. Otherwise, like others have said, you have to reprogram each one

The radio presets are stored in your key fob.

If you have a spare key that has not had the presets, set yet, you will have a blank slate to start with.

Otherwise the HU needs to be reprogrammed. Not coded, reprogrammed.

You know that there is this wonderful thing called the Owner's Manual? Not trying to be a jerk, just want you to save some time by going to the source . . .

The owners manual does not tell you how to de-select shortcut buttons, since it is not possible.

The valet key does not store settings like the normal fobs do. They only contain the authentication chip to start the vehicle.

I think that with the time that's been spent on this thread, we could have all gone out and programmed all 20 FM presets to a random station and reprogrammed them again.

There's always everyone's favorite - disconnecting the battery and waiting for all the car's remembered settings to be lost.

Now, considering how many things can go wrong when you connect / disconnect a battery on one of these cars, I'd live with the wrong stations. Or program new ones. Still.....

Pulling the battery does not reset radio presets or seat memory or any user settings on these cars.

These settings are stored in the key fob.

The only thing a power loss does in these cars is reset time and some adaptations.

The FM radio only tunes within the range of 87.7 - 107.9 MHz. You cannot tune 000.00 ...when you press 'm' the radio only permits '1' or '8' or '9' as the first digit!

So why not manually tune to 87.7 (the default 'no station') and memorize that frequency (or whatever frequency results in no-station)?!
