06 Grand Cherokee Overland radio display not working
FYI I have posted this in the audio forum as well. I am hoping to get multiple recommendations about this issue.
I purchased a used 06 Overland about a year ago and have had to real huge problems with it. A few months ago the display on my REC just went out. I can still listen to the radio, change the stations through the presets only, and change the volume on it. I cannot change from NAV to CD to Sirius Radio and back to the regular radio. The tuner and the seek features are not working and in general the display is not turning on. Every once in awhile it flashes on for maybe 5-10 seconds, but then it powers off again.
Following the instructions on wkjeeps and some of the users on here I took the whole radio out and checked the fan that is on the back of the radio. I turned the vehicle on and noticed that it was not spinning. Is there a fuse for the fan that could have possibly been blown or could it be something else? I understand that the radio is just one of those cannot be fixed but replaced items and I really don't want to spend the $800-$1000 to have it replaced. Any tips??
