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.

|misterlime||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.|

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.

|220combat||2014 JKUS, purchased in September 2013, 16K miles so far, happened to me 4 times already. Only EQ settings were reset.|
|07-07-2014 12:00 PM|
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.

|rocknjeep||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.|

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

|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 08:23 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.|
|01-18-2013 01:58 PM|
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 02:40 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.
|01-14-2013 02:03 PM|
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.
