That is strange. I don't think my radio lost any presets even when I disconnected the battery. Google around and see if you can find any discussions of someone who has had that problem and fixed it.
For instance, from a jeep forum:
For over a year, since our vehicle was purchased 9/2011, we've had this same problem of irregularly losing sat presets when going from Driver 1 to Driver 2, and on rare occasion vice versa. Twice last year the dealer we bought it from called Jeep, which said said they were working on a fix. The third time I went to that dealer they refused to discuss looking into it any further unless there was a TSB, so I went to another dealer, arguably the best in our area. For months they changed firmware (2.110, 2.116, 2.120 and now 2.126) and replaced radios -- we're now on the third radio.
Nothing has worked. So now, after having beavered away on this for nearly a year, they're no longer returning my calls. In bygone years Chrysler's customer help hotline was actually effective in resolving issues like this, but from what I read online they no longer respond meaningfully.
After 14 months of this I am ready to do something with more teeth in it, like filing a formal BBB complaint with the Detroit BBB office
(link underlined). But before going down that road I wondered whether there might be a better solution; or, barring that, whether those of us who have run out of patience would like to band together to file a joint formal complaint or several individual formal complaints against Chrysler with the Detroit BBB
I suspect the problem has various stages. First, it may be present solely in radios made before a certain time or otherwise having some sort of unique production characteristic.
Second, folks who've had this problem have had their radios replaced. Those replaced radios get "refurbished" and put back into stock as service replacements. So when defective radios are replaced they are replaced with these earlier-returned radios, most or virtually all of which were returned because of the presets defect. So you send in a radio with defective satellite presets and they replace it with what? Another radio with the same satellite presets defect.
Would replacing with a brand new radio, rather than a refurb, end this cycle of replacing radios with radios having the same defect? Perhaps, but we don't yet know because Chrysler is adamant they won't replace a defective radio with a genuinely new radio --only a refurb. It's Detroit's answer to Catch 22.
IMO, with all other options having failed they should at least try replacing with a new radio, not a refurb. If that doesn't work for two or three weeks, they can take it back and reinstall the earlier radio. But their rules say using a new radio is verboten, so here we sit like idiots and dealers' hands are tied.
