REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

I just had a new starter motor put in my Jeep after it failed at 60,000 miles . When they went to replace it they cleaned up corroded ground wires. When I got the car back I noticed the my head unit will change modes when I shut the car down and then start it back up, usually it only changes from Satellite mode to FM mode. It is pretty random. The dealer gave me a bullshit answer that because the car's battery was disconnected it messed with the computer and I would most likely have to replace the entire radio. Any help with this? I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland.

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

Do you have memory seats? Maybe it's going to the first or second memory seat and settings by default.

I have memory seats, but if i turn the car off then immediately turn it back on it should still be on the same memory setting...it's baffling me and slightly annoying.

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

Well if your key is programed to the mempry setting than is your settings are programed to memory #2 and it's on SAT, and you're using key #1 programed to CD it's going to go to memory setting #1 which is CD. Did that make sense? LOL

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

I'll try resetting the keys and memory (i've set it a couple times since it started acting up) but i have a sneaking suspicion it's not the memory system

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

start simple and just reset the system. Disconnect the negative terminal on the battery and push the brake pedal a couple times in 15 seconds.

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

I haven't (yet) had the pleasure of this "glitch" on my WK, but I've had it on my LX (Hemi Magnum) since new. Over the years I've just gotten used to it. Makes me wonder if it's fairly common to all DCX vehicles. Anyone else have this???

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

You know what. Now that I think of it mine jumps too. But I think it's because I'll have it on iPod mode than I shut the jeep off and it goes back to FM. but in some cases I think when I leave it on SAT and I go to get in the jeep again it's on FM.

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

This happens to me as well. It started once I added SAT & iPod. Isn't this the reason we can't save SAT presets, Due to the mulitplex splitter thingy? The REC sees sat/ipod as aux and can't tell them apart? Do you have iPod too?

Me too on the starter @ 58,000

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

Mine does it only if I am using the Uconnect bluetooth and shut the car off before the call ends..When I turn the truck back on it will be on FM, when I know it was on SAT before...

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

Mine does it when using the Uconnect as well and I shut the car off before the call ends. it just started doing this recently and I never heard of this issue till now. Apparently it's quite common. I'm very particular about my jeep running the way it should. I'm going to try and reset the system as suggested earlier. Does anyone have a solution?

Re: REC NAV Unit Changes modes when Jeep is turned off.

Just to keep everyone updated, my the head unit seems to have corrected itself. I haven't had any incidents lately of it changing modes. Weird.
