2013 Sport 8.4AN suddenly stopped working????
Hey guys,

Wondering if anyone else has come across this issue?

The last 2 days I noticed that when talkin on my cell through the uconnect then shut tithe truck off and transferring call to my iPhone when I leave the truck the radio would stay on.....?

Now driving around this morning everything was fine. An hour later I start the truck and the 8.4 just stays black there's no acknowledgment that the truck has turned on. I've driven the car about 5-6 different times today and same thing. Stays totally off. Radio doesn't work, phone buttons on steering wheel, nothing.

Any ideas?????

First off, make sure the button to turn off your 8.4 screen wasn't accidentally turned off. It is right below the screen.

Second, I did have to take my truck in at some point for an update, free from the dealer, because my screen was freezing and doing weird things

Screen off button was te first thing I checked. No luck there. I ended up taking the negative terminal off the battery and tried.... It worked, back up and running. But I'm definately worries this will happen again especially if it's out of warranty because I'm sure those radios cost a small fortune.

Wish there was a direct problem to pin point since many others are have the same issue as well. I don't understand why some people are having no problems at all and some are. My truck is 11 months old and all of a sudden this starts out of no where.

My 8.4 went black last week after I had the radio on as I was on working a field job for almost 2 hours. I started it up, dash around the speedometer went black, along with the head unit. It came back on after idling for 10 minutes, turning off truck, restarting, It makes me nervous.

I am again confused as to why your post got moved. It seems totally relative to 2013 Ram.
