AmIgone 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.

Larry_D Haven't had the radio reset but the navigation reset to factory defaults after a short stop. All was fine, restart and the nav. had totally reset. Had to reenter info and so far so good.

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

scope11 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.

KittyPrawn Here's the other thread I was talking about: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f274/an...is-671025.html
07-07-2014 01:22 PM
KittyPrawn 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.

BSuk 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.

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.

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.
01-24-2014 02:13 PM
AverageJK My 2013 has reset the eq settings 3 or 4 times now over the past year. Presets and everything else remain the same.

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

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...

Mine has done it probably a total of 5 times since mid October and every time it happened while it was off.
Yes, it happens less often, but the issue hasn't been completely resolved.

I have a 2013 Sahara with the 430N (October 2012 build) and the radio is completely bonkers. It loses my iPhone, randomly starts the voice recognition and asks for input, loses menus and on and on. I don't think that it's a problem with a specific model it's just a badly designed and implemented radio. My question is whether or not the folks with the 730 series nav/radio are seeing anything like this. Yesterday I made an appointment to drop it at the dealer to have it diagnosed and while I was speaking with the service advisor I asked how many of these he had seen "Never heard of a problem with these radios before." was his reply. Got a feeling that this is going to turn into a huge "fuster cluck" real quick.

lesgoff 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.

LewdDude 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?

05-20-2013 10:12 PM
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
siddious33 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
kappaknight 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.
