Hi, I am having the same problem with 2011 Overland. I called the dealer and they said they never heard of that happening before. Did changing the instrument cluster help?

Hi, i have a 2011 GC overland with similar problem but sounding like i might need to bring this back for service soon. Its very annoying driving without control of the radio and all display.

I took my 2011 Overland to the dealer. They re-installed a fuse. They said the fuse was not properly installed during dealer prep. 2 days and a bunch of left turns and everything is still working. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

I have the exact issue with my '05. I've had it for 3 years and this just started. Did you ever find the solution?

My parents 2005 JGC does the same thing. It was intermittent for a while, but is now completely blank. A new radio will cost $2500. We would like to exhaust all other possibilities before spending this.
It has never had any of the firmware updates (dealers didn't know how to do them!) and it is the radio that has the cd player, sirius, and navigation system included.
If anyone has any ideas of what to try, please let me know. I have to drive their jeep every day and it's really annoying to listen to their radio station!

You may want to try contacting Navtec and asking whether their update, Version 3.0, will correct the problem. I have just completed the update myself by purchasing it through them at $149. It will uodate the Navigation Radion as well as the navigation maps. Do NOT have a dealer do it because they charge $100, and it just involves inserting 2 discs and waiting for the system to reboot several times. Good luck.

Both drivers side doors speakers don't work. The passenger side doors speakers and in dash speakers work but only at max volume and faintly.

I have a 2006 Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7, and I am experiencing the same issue. When I start my vehicle sometimes the radio will turn on. If I turn the car off to "go into a store" or "get gas" the radio may not come back on. This happens on and off throughout the day. Any corrections for this problem? Your help is greatly appreciated.

I had same problem and same symptoms. Knowing the fuses were not blown I went a step further. Knowing 12vdc was available at the ACC pin on the gray radio plug, I assumed it was not getting to where it should be going. I removed the top cover, took out 4 screws that held in the CD player and unplugged the ribbon cable. Removed all the screws from the diecast heatsink on the left hand side of the radio. There are two more screws to remove that secure the radio harness plug bracket, and a module that plugs into the main chassis. Remove the module, then slip out the harness plug bracket and unplug its connector from the main chassis board. This was enough to put my radio back in operation when it was reassembled. Contact cleaner may be of benefit, but just the unplugging and replugging of these components restored contact and the current flow through the ACC connection.
