The radio on my 2015 wrangler will not turn on after the battery died and the car was jump started. The RADIO fuse is fine there is also 12V at the fuse. Trying to figure out where to look next. Is there an inline fuse behind the radio that could have blown?

Did you just look at the fuse or did you actually test it with a multimeter? Sometimes they look OK when they're not. Try temporarily swapping it with another fuse of the same rating and see if the radio works.

Another thing you might try is to disconnect the battery for a minute or so. The surge caused by the jump might have screwed up something in the radio's firmware... Rebooting it like this might bring it back to life.

I ohm'd out the fuse and it was good. Disconnecting the battery for a minute did the trick... the radio is now working! Thanks!

anti-theft feature, disconnecting the battery for a few minutes (or more) usually resolves it
