The radio randomly starts scanning for no reason. All good…

Customer Question
The radio randomly starts...

The radio randomly starts scanning for no reason

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

All good in that department, only happens while driving

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2010 grand Cherokee limited edition

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, just scream at the radio n then switch it off

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When it starts to randomly scan, the voice recognition lady says no voice activation can only be done while the car is stationary or something similar

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

You will need a factory scanner or equivalent to run a diagnostic scan & retrieve fault codes from the Vehicle audio module modules and based on these fault codes we can pull up a Pin Point troubleshoot and be accurate on it ,If you do get it scanned ,you can post the fault code back here for me and I can help you further on it and be more accurate .

now with that said, these audio units are common issue with them on what is it doing with you , i do suggest the scan using a jeep or equivalent scanner on 2010 it will show faults , it could be radio itself, rear connectors pins ,needs harness replaced or ,it needs a software updated

You are very welcome :)
