My Ipod has been working on my system since I bought the truck almost a year ago. Just recently, it will not play any of the songs on it. I can browse all the files/artists/songs/playlists...etc on my Ipod, but whenever I try to play any songs, it just freezes and will not play. I can hit the pause button, next song button, everything, it just will not play. I took my ipod out of my truck and it played fine on my Bose system in the house. I also hooked it up to my itunes to make sure it was updated. It works fine everywhere else except in my truck wether its connected to something or not. Does anybody have any ideas as to what the problem could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :4-dontknow:

check the plug connection where it plugs into, mine jiggled loose one time and did this. if not that make sure the ends on each connection are strait and not bent! good luck!

I would check all the plug ends for any bent connection, but try your dealership to see if there is an update for your head unit if it is an RER/REN mygig unit, those updates tend to fix some hiccups from time to time,

either that or since your truck is a 2100 there may only be a fix in the future hahahaha sorry buddy couldn't resist.

Have you tried doing a full system reset. (disconnect battery cable for 30 minutes) ?

I have also noticed that an iPod with large memory (greater than 16Gb) and fully loaded with music does not behave well. I purchased a 16Gb ipod shuffle and all my iPod issues disappeared. The odd time when I need to hook up my 64Gb iPod Touch, I have random issues.

I went to one of the Ipod forums
I had typed something into Google like

Chrysler RER radio Ipod issues

at one forum it read something about turning the ignition key, connect Ipod, turn Ipod off & do something else, it reboots something
I'm sure you can find out what it is by using a Google search

You radios ID is located at the lower right corner of your radio, 3 letters

By the way there is a site that you might also check out

Good Luck

2100??? doh...:doh: i meant 2011 :D


got it fixed. it ended up being an apple problem, not dodge. i tried my wifes ipod on my cable and hers worked fine. i tried my ipod on her cable, and the same thing, no play. i ended up reseting my ipod, and it started to work again. my ipod worked on everything else except in my truck, and i couldn't figure out why, so i ended up doing a reset of my ipod. i'm glad i had my wifes ipod to do some testing with. atleast that way i didn't have to reset the computer or anything. every thing is again working like it should. my ipod is a 8gb 5th gen nano. thanks for all the ideas, and i hope this helps if someone else has this same problem.

Now there is a suggestion that I 'Should' have mentioned....speaking of a :doh: moment!

Good troubleshooting on your part. :smileup:
Really good to hear that you have it all up and running.
