Left Wheel Audio Button FF instead of Skip
2016 JK with standard audio package connecting through USB to IPhone XR

When I press my up button on the left side of the steering wheel my music skips ahead a few seconds instead of changing to the next song. If I wait for a couple seconds and press the up button again, it will skip to the next song. It didn't used to do this. Did I accidentally trigger some annoying mode!?

Are you perhaps holding instead of simply pushing the button? There are separate functions for "push" vs. "hold", but I have forgotten what the stock settings are since I installed an aftermarket stereo and reprogrammed my buttons.

It's also possible your button is sticking slightly, perhaps a splash from a sugary drink or something?

In the manual, it means it also does something different depending if you are within the first 8 seconds of the current song or not.

Also, it might simple be a case of how the commands are mapped to your third party device. I mention that only because your head unit was designed at least 10 years before your iPhone XS.

Interesting on the first 8 seconds of the song....I may have to do some trial and error with that. I don't think it is the device because I used the same device and it worked before. Also nothing has been spilled or gotten on the buttons between that time. I also tried holding vs pressing vs double pressing and nothing seems to make a difference.

How do you reprogram the buttons?
