    Intermittent Radio

    Our JLUR started having an issue where the sound would cut out for about half a second every 3 seconds or so. Of course this happened the morning of our 12 hour drive for the holidays!

    We spent some time online and found very little information about the issue:
    *check the electrical connection for the rear wiper for moisture if running a hard top.
    *Disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 seconds to reset the radio.

    We disconnected the battery and that fixed the problem... for a while. It's back!
    Has anybody else had this problem? What is the real cause of this and what is the permanent fix?

    Thanks for your input and good luck with your radios.

    Today at lunchtime, I did nothing to try to fix those issue, the radio worked fine. Go figure.

    Radio cuts out

    I had a JK that did the same along with the cruise control shutting off.Simple fix-check that all tha fuses are well seated.During shipping the fuses that handle all the time power like the clock aren't seated.

    I checked our fuses when this first started. I pulled the ones for the radio and checked to make sure all was okay. I'm wondering if there is a loose ground somewhere or just as bad/corroded connection.

    According to the build date, our Jeep is almost a year old; built December 2017!

    I'm pretty sure JeepFan had the same problem. Had something to do with the switch panel being that it's connected to the headunit.

    Driving to dinner today okay; after dinner intermittent again. Turned Jeep off and back on and it worked okay. Phone calls work okay. After three phone call, stopped working again.

    Tried to turn off to reset it and the radio would not shut off, even when I opened the door. Cycled through the start deference a couple times without for on the brake to get the radio to turn off with the Jeep off and door open.

    Radio still intermittent. ☹️

    Have you tried taking a video of it when it does that?
