Thanks again.

Update:

It was a ground.

If you can not get it working and want a replacement for an '04 Rubicon, PM me as I have the OE unit from my '04 Rubicon out and sitting on a shelf in my garage.

And a big welcome to WF DM MKV.

Sorry to bump old topic but Just purchased a 04 rubicon and this happened to me. Grounds check out and so do fuses. Any other suggestions. Eject works on mine however nothing else does. Just displays time if I press the Time Button.

stevens243 It sounds like you:

Have a bad ground to the radio, or

Have a short, or

Have a radio you can throw away.

Pull the radio, check the connections on the back and the ground wire that connects to the firewall. While there, look for stripped wire etc.

IF that doesn't change anything, see if you can find a place that will diagnose the radio for free/cheap.

Problem With Radio - On But Not Working

Currently the issue with my stock CD player in my 05 wrangler is that it's as if the buttons weren't working. The radio's clock displays, but the power or no other buttons work in order to power the radio on. Eject also doesn't work, and I have a CD inside of the player.

I tried to disconnect the battery and let it sit for about five minutes in order to reset, but still the same issue.

Has anyone had this problem in the past? Hate to have to buy a new radio when this one was working fine up until now...
