Hello guys, I have a 2012 Unlimited Sahara with 2,000 miles and just noticed a problem with the UConnect system. I have the 730 model.
I was washing my Jeep the other day and had my iPhone plugged in listening to music and noticed the usb connection in the console constantly power cycles. It will stay on for a while, then cut off for a few minutes, then come back on.
I noticed it because the iPhone makes an audible beep when it starts to charge. So when I started paying close attention, it does it all the time when the keys are out of the Jeep.
Just to make sure it wasn't an issue with my phone, I tried my wife's iPhone and a friends Droid X. All the same problem.
So I remembered our Office Depot had Apple 30pin connector cables with LEDs in the ends, so I bought one to monitor it. When the power cycle happens, the fan on the UConnect system also starts running, and it sounds like it is trying to read a disc. Anybody else's do this? Check out the youtube video below to see what I'm talking about. You can jump to the end to see the power come back on when the keys are out of the ignition.
Any ideas, thoughts, or help would be appreciated. Thanks!
