If you have ever travelled through Louisville, KY you may have notice that we are constantly doing road construction that is honestly accomplishing needs from twenty years ago. This morning while on my way to work, I hit a bump in an expansion joint on the I-65 project. Immediately my audi quit playing on my radio. I had my iPhone plugged into the cassette tape deck. Power was not lost, I can still turn the volume up and down and change to AM/FM but still no audio.
The "this day sucks already" mode kicked in and I beat the dash a couple of times and it came back on. I work at an airport and hit a bump where they just paved and the asphalt is thicker than the concrete causing another bump and the audio went back out.

Any suggestions? I've done a google search, TRS, and on the forums here. Nothing seems to match.

Sounds a lot like the biggest PITA electrical troubleshooting problem: the intermittent short. You could try pulling the H/U out and jiggling wires while it's on, hoping to find the right one. If it's in the head unit itself, I would think about replacement. If it's in the wiring harness (less likely) then you may have to replace that specific wire.
No fun, any way you cut it.
