Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

The vehicle not being completely off until after opening / closing the door is the difference. I did not know that fact. The 7" EVIC screen is operational today, although I had to restore my preferred user settings. Thanks all for the help.

Earlier this week with 820 miles on my Overland my air system started to give me over heating warnings in the highway. Took it in and they couldnt find anything. Then this evening my 7in dash screen goes out along with all tach, gas and temp gauges. Immediately contacted the dealership and dropped it off before they closed so they could personally see it - also got it on video. Ill post their findings...

Ugh. Odd that when the LCD is blank, the other "gauges" all show null. Wonder if it's a connection or something? Hope they figure it out quickly for you.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

Mine went dead this morning. They are not providing a rental. Other than this the jeep has been flawless through 3000miles. Awesome, fun to drive and 20mpg at 80 mph, Im happy. Hope they can sort out the issue, I would buy another in a heart beat. 2014 Overland V8

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

My 7" screen went dead yesterday. After shutting it down and letting it sit for 15 mins., the screen came back on. Used the vehicle a couple of times today and it worked fine. I didn't lose any personal settings when it went down yesterday. Akrenegade1, please post what your dealer discovers. Thanks.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

Isn't it strange that these glitches seem to show up in clusters. There doesn't seem to be any correlation with build dates, mileage, etc.

I still think that Jeep, or uConnect, or maybe Sergio himself are doing stealth updates as they gather information for the next fix.

Or maybe I'm crazy.

Or both.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

I hear ya Bill! Sometimes I think the Jeeps just like to screw with us to see if we're paying attention.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

Although posted once before, while driving if you hold down the mute and tune buttons at the same time it will reset the Uconnect. I'm not sure if this would reset the 7" screen though. Might want to try this as it has had the same effect for the problems I've had.

Update: I've driven mine about 25 miles total since reseting to factory defaults and i havent had a problem... keeping fingers crossed.

Thanks all.

Mine was replaced and no issues since - knock on wood.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee 7" Screen Dead

I have had the same situation with my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. I have 3,600 miles on it. I have had several instances where the screen goes dead or freezes and you cannot do anything. It has always reset after turning Jeep off. I finally took it to the dealer and they did a software update but on the way home it happened again. I am headed back to dealer on Wednesday. Its very frustrating. They said they may have to check the ground wire. Does anyone know if they have to take the dash apart to do this? I really hate to think they will....seems like once you do that you end up with rattles and noise.

Yes, they had to take mine apart to replace the unit. So far so good... but took about 2 1/2 weeks to get the part in.
