I am having the same problem on my 2011 overland. I turn left or right and radio shuts off, turns back on in about 20 seconds. It even resets my equalizer settings which is annoying the heck out of me. This seems to happen 1 or 2 times a day. I am taking it in for service tomorrow, hopefully they can fix what is wrong with it. If they find the problem, I will try to post their solution.
#56 of 84 speakers and remote opener related???
Jun 26, 2011 (4:37 am)
I have owned this Jeep for over two years and been very happy with it. I purchased it used; it's a 1999 GC with a 6 cylinder. The previous owner had installed an aftermarket stereo, and I have since installed a new Sony unit after experiencing the following issues. My issue is this: The front door speakers would intermittently not work and now don't work at all. The remote door lock would ALSO intermittently work to unlock, but always lock. Now the remote does not work to unlock at all. BOTH of these events seemed to happen concurrently. I'm wondering if the passenger control module could be the source of my problem as the two seem to be part of both systems (at least according to what I read in the manual). I would appreciate anyone's input as far as a resolution for the issue is concerned. Thanks in advance!

#58 of 84 Radio/CD display not lit & CD player/changer not working
Jul 24, 2011 (4:41 pm)
I have an 04 GC. Bought used 4 years ago. The radio/CD player is original. The Single CD slot over the radio has had issues for over a year not playing in the winter when the heat has been on and not wanting to eject. It finally quit working, it just didn't show up on the display, so I use the CD changer in the back for CD use. Last week I started the car and the radio/clock display was not lit, but the radio & CD Changer were operating normally. This weekend my boyfriend checked the fuse which he said looked fine, but changed the fuse anyway. During the process we were checking the CD changer/radio which were working but still no display. When I drove the car home, the radio & CD in the slot were the only things that would work. It's been a year since the single CD worked and it had a CD stuck in it. Now, on the way home it's playing and the CD changer won't. When I ejected the CD it would not go back in. So now, there is no display, the CD Player & Changer will not work and it will not eject out of the changer. Radio still works. Good Grief! Does this sound repairable at the dealership?

Sometimes pulling the fuse will "reboot" the CD player so try that again.
The How to Remove a Stuck CD discussion has some tips that may help.

Both of my remote openers stopped working after working intermittently. The problem was caused by a cold solder joint where the battery holder is soldered to the P/C board in the remote. Easy fix, if you know how to solder. Disassemble the remote. Remove the P/C board. Remove the battery. Note which way it is inserted so it'll be easier to re-install. Examine both battery clips to see which of the legs has come loose - both could be loose. Clamp an alligator clip so that it pushes down on the loose battery clip. Turn the board over so the loose solder joints can be heated with a low wattage P/C pencil soldering iron. I found that the battery clips snapped into place as soon as the joint was heated. Be sure to examine all legs on the clips to make sure all are down tight to the board. Add solder as required. I've had to do this twice on my remote and once on my wife's.
Replace the battery. If it's a couple of years old, now is a good time to get a new one. Reassemble the remote. I haven't had to re-program mine.
#61 of 84 2011 Firmware Update CD Failure
Aug 22, 2011 (6:26 am)
I have a 2011 Overland with the 430N radio. Received a firmware update CD in the mail from Chrysler/Sirius that promised to add new feature - TravelLink. Followed instructions on disk jacket exactly, after pressing YES to the prompt “Upgrade …” the radio appears to have locked up. That was over 60 hours ago. It won’t finish update, never powers down, is unresponsive to all controls , won’t eject disk. Chrysler 800 number “service” no help – only wanted to reread me the jacket instructions. Anyone else receive this update disk, did it install properly for you and what can I do to get my radio/nav/backup camera/clock to reset?

I received the same update, haven't loaded though. I think someone in the 2011 JGC forum said they received and had no problems loading.

Anyone else having Uconnect issues? I've had my 2011 JGC Laredo 26X with th 430N radio for about 9 months now. Back in May, the Uconnect stopped linking to my phone. Just noticed all of a sudden one day that it wasn't linking to my phone. Didn't see the battery and bars symbol like on a cell phone. Took it to the dealer. They "reset" the radio and then loaded updated software that they had to order. No problems since. Then in the last couple of weeks, when I leave work the phone appears to connect (NAV screen shows battery and bars). When I hit the phone button (on radio or steering wheel) there are several things that may happen...
- Uconnect doesn't respond at all (sometimes the bars and battery go away)
- Uconnect responds, but as if no phone is connected
- Even locks up at times
Ususally have to drive a while and even turn the car off and back on to get uconnect to work.
But it is not the 10 or 15 seconds that it used to be.
Thinking I will take it back to the dealer in the next week. At least maybe they can "reset " radio again. Not sure how they do that. I tried removing the fuse to cut power, but that didn't change anything. I reven set Uconnect back to factory settings and re-paired my phone. No help.
Other than that, no problems. Hope they can fix this. Nothing major, but an annoyance!
