My thoughts as well as the smarter people I've talked to lean towards this being more a software issue. I had my whole radio replaced, but that could just be the head unit and maybe something is wrong with the wiring or a component that maybe wasn't changed.

Kitty...try a PM to a member named xsdbs. He is the man, in terms of Wrangler stereo options. Haven't seen him on here in awhile, but I've been gone for months, so...

My 2014 430 RBZ has done this twice now. I'm actually glad this is a common issue and not some sign of a larger electrical problem. Anyone else have a 2014 with the radio resetting occasionally?

I have a 2013 Sahara with the 430N and I have the same problem.

My 2013 has reset the eq settings 3 or 4 times now over the past year. Presets and everything else remain the same.

I just came across this thread today and it caught my eye because on a couple of occasions I have started the Jeep and the radio is on AM. I leave it on a certain FM station. Usually the radio is off when I turn the Jeep off. WTH. Mine is a 2010 Sport.

The 430 in my 2014 Sport has reset the equalizer to 0 several times now. I hope it's just a reflash. Also about a week or 2 ago it took about a minute to turn on then when it did the channel it started up on was just something random.

This has happened twice to me in the three months I've owned my Jeep. It happened about 5 days ago on a trip. Just resets the EQ and puts the volume at 0. It's not the end of the world, but it's damn annoying. I have the regular 430 radio.

Glad to see I'm not the only one.

There was another thread that someone brought this up in. He mentioned loose connectors fixed the issue for him.

I tried to get more information, but there was no response. A more technical person than me might feel the urge to look into it and report back.

I've had my 13 Jku Sahara for a year now, 12k miles on it. never had a problem with the stereo...until I paired it with my iPod this past week for a trip. Now my EQ and balance/fader settings have reset 3x over the past week. Maybe I'll take all my Bluetooth paired devices off and see if that does anything.

I have a 2014 JKUS. This happened to me today with 2000km's on it. Got in the jeep, radio on AM (which I never listen too) and volume down to 0. Presets in tact, but eq reset.
The only thing different about today, was a boat and trailer being disconnected. I drive to work with it hitched and wired, then turned off the jeep. About an hour or two later, my buddy came disconnect the hitch and wiring and took the trailer. I wasn't there, so the jeep was locked and armed. Then about 6 hours after that I went out and started it to find the reset happened.

Could be random, but I don't have a trailer now to try and recreate this.

Next oil change, I'll ask the dealer if there is a TSB and/or flash update for the radio.

2014 JKURX, happened to me twice so far and I've only had it for 2 months. It happened yesterday. I noticed the radio was off, didn't think nothing of it because the wife was with me and she sometimes turns the radio off when she gets a phone call. Well after turning the radio back on, it was on AM, all setting EQ setting back to default. I guess I'll have to pay more attention and see if there's a pattern when/what, it happens again.
