Re: Programing new key Fob ?

Re: HDD stopped working 2011 GC with RER radio

I'd try the simplest thing first. Pull he radio fuses (check the manual for which one(s). That might reboot the hardware.

Re: Chrysler Recalls 867,795 SUVs Worldwide for Brake System

In another thread it was mentioned that the fuel pump fuse failed (loc F70) and the vehicle had to be towed.

Re: 3 prong 110v outlet in rear

I keep a 'three to two' adapter with the car just in case I need to do an emergency charge on my laptop, but would never use it unless I'm in the car. Works great for low current requirements.
