2004 Scion XA Stereo turns off by itself

I have a 2004 Scion XA with the stock Pioneer Radio and for a month now the radio turns off by itself anytime I turn on my turn signal, press the brake, or change from: park, reverse, neutral or drive. The radio seems to reset by itself on when it turns back on it shows "Scion" on the screen. Does anyone know what it could be? The battery on the car is less than a year old and I've tried cleaning the battery cables but it still turns on and off by itself.

Sounds like it could possibly be a short inside the radio or maybe you've got a wiring problem behind the dashboard where something is touching something it's not supposed to be touching.
