|spackler||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?|

|darticus||2013 Moab with 430n radio and have it one month. Today it was off and on an AM channel with no signal. Haven't checked other things as yet. What should I check??? Sounds like it the radio not the jeep wrangler. Going out to check. Does the 730 radio do this also??? Ron|

Mine has done it probably a total of 5 times since mid October and every time it happened while it was off.

|KittyPrawn||The reset button on the steering wheel has nothing to do with the radio. It is to reset things in the EVIC. Also, the issue for me happens when the vehicle is turned off, I'm definitely not hitting reset when I'm not in it.|

Found this post on jeepforum site.
2012 jk electrical issues anyone? alarm & radio issues - JeepForum.com
User Layth posted the following
I just got a radio update for my 430N for the "resetting" issue. Same symptoms. Radio restarts, background image resets and it goes to a different station (but presets remain). This update was *supposed to* fix that very issue. Got it done 2 weeks ago. Too soon to say it worked for sure, but so far it hasn't done it.
I will get the actual update number next time I go out to the Jeep. But there is a update for sure.

|lesgoff||Well anything is possible... my controls are different|
|05-21-2013 09:23 AM|
just by chance, it may not have anything to do with it, but there is a reset button on the left side of the steering wheel... any chance you guys could be hitting that? I know I did once, but on purpose to see what would happen. I noticed when I got my jeep while trying to get the ECO MPG estimate to show, the units were all set to KPH and I set them all to MPH and when I hit the reset button on the wheel, everything reset...lol imagine that? anyway its only a 3 band EQ so it was an easy reset. So maybe you guys are hitting this button getting out of your jeeps?

|lesgoff||My 2012 Sahara (Arctic) also does this randomly. The EQ, Photo and presets are reset randomly. I had it do this once while driving. Maybe I will get the dealership to check it out during my next service.|

My 2012 Sahara does this occasionally too. No real rhyme or reason to when or what causes it. Mine will reset the equalizer and kick you to the Sirius info station, but it keeps my presets and usually never has an issue with the iPod functions.
I just chalk it up to things that are quirky on the Jeep, like when the AC just cuts off for 3-4 seconds when you stop at a light and then kicks back on again. I thought that was a serious issue, but thanks to this forum I know lots of other Wrangler drivers experience it as well.

|CharacterZero||On my 430N, I like to listen to a USB drive (MP3s) on random play. Every time I start the Jeep, I must switch off AUX (select radio), then go back to AUX, then select menu, then select random play. Pretty lame design flaws that it can't remember random play across restarts and that I must leave and return to AUX to enable access to the correct menu.|
|01-14-2013 03:40 PM|
My 430N radio acts up too.
The EQ has been reset twice. I thought maybe I wasn't hitting the SAVE button correctly or something.
It's randomly lost my iPhone 5 as a media player while connected via the wire.
It never picks up the iPhone in time when doing bluetooth streaming. It'll try, then default to radio, then I have to bring it back to AUX if I want to listen to it.
I'd like to keep it stock to deter theft, and I honestly don't care too much about it. it'd be nice if it just worked as intended though. I'm thinking about getting a Lockpick at some point. It'd be a shame to waste it on a half broken system.

This is what I know they did to my Jeep:
1. They flashed it. I think this was an update for it.
2. They replaced the radio. I couldn't get any confirmation as to why this was necessary. It may have been as instructed.
I can't tell you if this has definitely fixed the issue. I know I didn't have this problem all last month between when they flashed my system and when they replaced the radio. But, with something this inconsistent, I don't know if it's fixed or luck. I don't know if the radio replacement was necessary, and I suspect that it may not have been.

Happened to me a second time. First time was a month or so ago coming out of work and the jeep had sat for about 4 hours. This time I ran in a store, bought some ammo, came out and eq was reset. Only way I know is that the radio was off and I never turn it off.
Let us know what they say when you take it in, Deb.

|SoFlaJeep||I also have the 430N in my 2013 Sahara JK and it has all sorts of little quirks. If I'm listening to the iPod and have "Random" selected then turn off the vehicle, when I return "Random" is deselected and when I press the Menu button the screen that allows one to select Random is gone. I have to select something besides "AUX" then select AUX again and it's back and I can select Random. Frequently it will completely lose my iPhone (usually when I'm Bluetooth streaming) and that requires some jockying around to get back. All in all my opinion of the unit is pretty low given its cost and all of its quirks. It also completely loses the iPod which will require that I disconnect the USB and reconnect it and then it's rediscovered. I intend to bring this up when I go for the first service.|

You should be able to do that without returning to the dealership yourself. Call Sirius, have your ESN number handy, and tell them that you are on a trial membership and the manufacturer had to replace the radio and that radio needs activating. When you give them the ESN number they'll confirm your membership and send a signal to the radio telling it that it's okay to receive their signals. Simple as that!

|JandS||Our 2012 Rubi does it occasionally|
|01-04-2013 10:56 AM|
So, just as an update to this...
I brought my Jeep in for my free first oil change and mentioned there was this issue. I also mentioned that I did not think it was a hardware issue.
So, they're replacing my radio. If you guys bring it in and they decide to replace the radio, there is one thing you should check if you use Sirius at all. The dealership decided to transfer my radio at the time. I went in on Dec 19th. I can't get back to actually replace the radio until Jan 12. That's 3 weeks where I have had no access to Sirius.
It isn't a huge deal for me right now because it is still the free trial and I have other radio options. But, just something to watch out for!
I'll let you guys know if this fixes anything with the random turn offs and resets. But, I have a feeling that it won't.

|termite||I have a 2012 Sahara and it has done it occasionally. It does not seem to matter whether the Jeep has been left overnight or if it was only shut off for 10 minutes. It is pretty random. Maybe once every couple of months.|

|Riccochet||Mine is a 2012 Rubicon and it does it from time to time.|
|12-14-2012 12:42 PM|
|KittyPrawn||The most interesting trend I've seen so far... is that we all have 2013 Rubicons. I'd like to see if some people without Rubicons have this issue. If they don't, what could be related to the problem that only exists with the Rubicon?|

|SouthTJ||Happened to me once. I came out of work and the 430 was off and I always leave it on. Stations intact, bluetooth still connected and just EQ settings reset. Hasn't happened since.|
|12-14-2012 11:09 AM|
My Bluetooth hasn't lost the links to my phone/ipod. So, the EQ is really the only problem I've run into.
I have a scheduled service appointment tomorrow for a free first oil change. Maybe I'll ask them to take a look at it, or ask them if they've heard of this problem.
