Thanks for the info. Dealer said they would have to start taking it apart to diagnose. The fm radio either works or it doesn't, when it doesn't, it seeks through the entire radio range as if there is not antenna then lands on the one station where the tower is 1/4 mile behind my house. sometimes after several minutes it gets reception and then I get every station. The sat radio spins looking for signal.@digger
Just so your understand the setup...
The satellite receiver on the JL and the AM/FM radio antenna are two different animals.
You have a mast antenna that is solely for AM/FM reception.
As far as Sirius/XM satellite radio, the "satellite radio receiver" is what is used for SiriusXM reception.
DO KNOW that MANY JL/JLU owner's here have posted that SiriusXM reception is very poor in regard to their vehicle.
On the Wrangler JK and JL, the "satellite radio receiver" for use with SiriusXM resides up on top of the sound bar/roll bar, just above and behind the passenger.
Can you share pictures of the spot you found the fix for? My AM/FM doesn’t work either. Thank you.I've had my JLU for a little over a week and just noticed the FM/AM radio was not coming in on any channel. I checked the lower passenger kick panel and sure enough, the antenna coming in through the fender well was disconnected from the cable running into the back of the UConnect. I reconnected and everything is working fine now.
I realize you posted this 6 months ago, but I'm having the same issue in my new JLU. For the first week, everything was fine. Now all of a sudden, I can't get jack sh!t for FM reception!There is an option on the screen for “HD” however I’ve not noticed a difference when turning it off and on.
It has to be a wiring issue, just today I tuned through all FM channels and was lucky to hear anything besides static. I will contact Jeep to see if anyone else has reported a similar issue.
I have had that same problem, went with an aftermarket stubby antenna........no help. Did you get a resolution?Just wondering if this is a common occurrence or just an issue with my JLU, but ever since I have owned my new Rubicon I have had TERRIBLE radio reception. I realize that a large amount of people will just use Carplay or Bluetooth for music...but sometimes I take a quick trip and forget my phone or just want to listen to the radio. Extremely static/white noise/terrible reception for nearly every station. Also, I live in Houston, TX so its a major city, i'm not in the middle of the wilderness.
Anyone else? Potential fix?
