LMH I discovered them and didn't tell my husband they were there. Then when we took a trip in the "new Jeep" - me driving- he went to change the stations and I had some fun with it. He said, "MAN! These controls are sensitive!!" I stopped, and then when he found a song, I said, "OH I LOVE THIS SONG!!" and turned it up. He caught on what was going on. I suggest you guys have some fun with them first before letting the cat out of the bag. :-)

Yea they aren't that great

CA3 My stereo started playing music the other day that I recognized but the radio wasn't showing a station. I was like, "WTH?" It was streaming from my iPhone. I didn't realize the N130 had the streaming capability. Talk about Christmas!

PA ARCTIC like them. but agree. a mute/on/off would have been great.
06-26-2012 11:21 PM
AZduck yeah - I 'find' them all the time too, especially when turning.

Every once in awhile I accidentally hold it down and find myself 20+ channels away

My other cars have mute button but since I don't play CD (which might take more time spin up the CD again?) but only USB, I found it's useless when you can do the same using the power button.

The power button in fact is better because it will resume from where your music is stopped, but the mute button will keep playing for no reason but not going to resume.

Animal Chicken I was asking the same question until I happened upon them by chance today.

to cycle only forward is a bit annoying. i find myself using the touch screen more than the back buttons. i only listen to the same 4 am stations and 2 sirius channels tho.

about unlocking the door. i would think if u set the alarm then unlock by hand from the inside then open the door it would activate the alarm since in the book its says the only way to deactivate the alarm is with the key fob or inserting the key in the ignition and turn to accessory mode.

Steering wheel audio controls don't work

So my steering wheel audio controls stopped working today. Another post on this site said to honk the horn and it will reset the controls. It worked! Apparently there is no fix, so if you're audio controls stop working just honk your horn.

When I do that the horn starts honking like an alarm

Merlin75 Can I take a 12 wheel and retrofit it on an 09 to get these controls? That's the only thing I'm missing on my JKUR.

ShoreWrangler The Grand Cherokee has them there too, I actually like it better that way, more intuitive gripping the back of the wheel

fan of fanboys Slightly off topic: if you have the doors locked and attempt to open door from inside what happens?

My wife has a Murano, which we are trading for her 2012, and the doors remained locked. You have to manually unlock. And it annoys hell out of me.

Smshly616 What an awesome surprise!! My first car was a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder and it had audio controls on the back of the steering wheel. The sales guy never told us about them. I was cleaning out my car in the garage one day and noticed them, it was like Chirstmas!!
