See if you have a little tiny hole somewhere near the CD player which is where a pin is inserted to manually release the CD if one is stuck. A stuck CD can cause the radio not to work. I used to have the same radio but I don't recall if it has that CD release hole or not.
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.

|Jma20a||if its not the ground and is a problem with the unit just upgrade to a new headunit, something that has more features, like a built in ipod interface, an other inputs and out puts. if you do end up getting a new one find one you like on crutchfield that is a little over your price range and then go on ebay and see what kind of deals they have. i saved close to $700 for all my upgrades and stuff.|

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...
