2011 Jeep GRAND Cherokee overland .I am having problems with everything electronic.Monday they are going to replace the instrument cluster! they hope that will fix the problems. All the setting are gone haywire. My alerts dont work i have no sound. My uconnect is always doing the same where it wont work then it will. nothing in the setting is working. I have just over 4500 miles on this overland 2011.It sound as if they are guessing on all of it. This car went threw quality control. Does anyone know what they do during quality check?

I bought a "new" radio unit for around 100 Euro and now it works fine.

I own a 2005 Grand Cherokee. It seems that the satellite module has gone bad. I would like to know exactly where the module is located so I can replace it. I have been told it is in the rear quarter panel, but need to where and which side to limit all the work involved in getting to it.

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.
