You don't have a 2014 cherokee do you? There is no power button.

Re: How to turn the radio off

Here is a little trick I picked up from my reading to turn off the radio and even keep it turned off on a restart. Insert a blank USB thumb drive in the USB slot. This is small enough and handy enough you can keep it in the Jeep for when ever you want to do this.

Hi Macfan, how does inserting a blank usb drive help you to turn off the radio? Which button do you press?
Thanks

Re: How to turn the radio off

The radio does not turn off. You can blank the screen and mute the sound, but the come back on when vehicle is restarted.

The suggestion below is using a source with no music on it. I haven't tried it, but it makes sense to me.

Innovative.

I guess you could use a blank SD card if you're using the USB port?

Re: How to turn the radio off

If all you are worried about is the music or sound playing when you turn on the vehicle you can choose any input like MacFan suggested or simply turn the volume all the way down. Muting it only lasts until the vehicle is restarted but turning it all the way down sets volume to 0 and it will stay there until you turn it back up reagrdless of number of restarts.
