I had to laugh at this one. I worked at a car dealership in the past. This was such a common problem. Sometimes the radio would go up in smoke as the coins short out the circuit boards.
Customers would come in all ticked off because "the radio just started smoking." Then they would be even more angry when they where told it was not covered under warranty. They would say "I do not know how the money got in there. You guys must have put it in there so you don't have to fix it."
One day my wife told me the radio stopped working in our mini van. You can guess what happened.
