#134 of 143 Radio unit blinks off
Aug 15, 2012 (5:00 pm)
I have an REN unit in my 2009 T&C that has started turning on the MyGig system. It will go completely off and then come back one. Sometimes it will do it every 3 minutes, sometimes it takes longer. Sometimes the screen will just go black, whereas other times the unit reboots and the Chrysler logo reappears.
I have application 9.214, grace notes 881
The system is 6826 006 3.3
I've visited http://mofv.com/mygig/ and downloaded the most recent application available. I'm burning it to a data CD now to try the update. This started just a day ago but has been consistent during the day.
Any thoughts? The stations are not being lost, just the unit is turning off and turning back on. I feel there is a loose connection somewhere but I don't know where to start. Again this is a new problem and we have not had any service done on the car prior to this problem.
#135 of 143 Radio Random Reboot update...
Aug 16, 2012 (6:34 am)
I had posted about my radio blinking off, or randomly rebooting. I think there is an issue with the internal HDD as I can get the unit to freeze up by trying to access the HDD. Thanks to the http://mofv.com/mygig/ site I was able to download the latest application and Gracenotes updates and apply them to the head unit.
Today we will see what's happening and if it made it any better. I found one other case of this happening and they had the same version of both. REN 9.214 and GraceNotes 881. Well I'm not updated to 2.292 which I believe is the last of the REN updates. We will see if this helps the function of the unit.
I did try to erase all the music off the HDD, it seemed to take forever and never completed on it's own. I ended up deleting some songs manually which now shows a clean drive with almost 29 gig of data.
So if anyone has any thoughts please share~

Hey there. I was able to get the unit reassembled but the untitled still doesnt work. I had to take two of the broken little disc out. They are the discs that the CDs move up and down on. However, I thought I could reassemble it and maybe work without having 6 disc and work with 4 instead. That was a no go. Maybe I didnt put together right. Who knows....

If you can give some details on the reassemble, that would be great. I think I didn't reassemble it right. So I still have the blinking lights.

We deleted everything off the internal HDD and the head unit hasn't given us any problems. All updates were a success and the unit is performing just fine. I do believe the internal HD is the problem, but I don't need it and would rather not take it in to fix something I don't use.
SO I have not idea what the real solution is, however removing the data off the HD resulted in the unit working right.

#140 of 143 Navigation System Add on

Is there an aftermarket add on for a 2013 Chrysler T&C's Uconnect System? Apparently some of the later 2013 Chryslers had an inactive system that required dealer activation...but not mine. I was told $2300 to remove the old system and install the one with Navigation.
THere must be another option utilizing the Uconnect System.

Have you ever found the solution to this problem? I have had the same problem, and would really love to use the DVD player again.- thanks

I just wanted to say that you are not alone. So far my 2008 Town and Country has been nothing but a pain. I will NEVER buy another Chrysler vehicle. The VES system stooped working and I'm scared to even ask about how much fixing it would be, plus they are always rude when you call. We are hoping to trade ours in soon too.
