RER radio powered off

So we are driving up to Cannon yesterday listening to music on Hard drive and at about an hour 45 in the radio shuts off and can not be turned back on. It is hot to the touch under the LCD. After skiing all day the radio was working again and stayed that way the whole way home. Although I did not have it as loud and switched from HDD to radio at an hour 20 in.

Anybody else experience this?

thanks

Re: RER radio powered off

Happened to me a few time with my 2011 GC HEMi, I noticed that I was fully loaded in the back when it shut down...Camping and fishing gear most of the time...Would turn off the GC and 15 or so minutes, I would restart and all would be fine...Spoke to the dealer at the time about it, told me to go see him when it happens again...ya right... So, I strongly think that overheating is the issue with the AMP...I would still see on the LCD the radio and all other apps, but just no volume output at all....Not much to go on, but hope it helps...

Re: RER radio powered off

my whole radio went dead, no screen, no controls or anything. I wonder if it was hard drive causing heat. the amp or just plain poor cooling in radio. Dont want it to happen on longer trips
