    I have a 2017 JK and I'm having some type of intermittent problem. warning bell sounds, radio turns off and re-sets(aftermarket kenwood with garmin gps) warning lights flash, speedometer drops to 0 and cruise turns off. each time, different assortment of lights stay illuminated on dash each time. turn key off and it resets most times, others it will not start, then after a minute its fine. anyone had anything similar??? of course it never does it predictably. Not sure if computer keeps a error log that a tech can review. waiting for dealer to get me in for service....

    It's under warranty, an issue like this, I would have the dealer look at.

    Nice to have FCA warranty to cover computer glitches but hope the other electrical problems are not linked to any aftermarket installation

    My first thoughts also. Who did installation? You should have some type of warranty there also.

    It's most likely not the after market head unit. I have a 2016 that I have been getting the Christmas tree dash on for about a year. Dearler can fix it short term but it returns for me. Let me know if you have any luck so I can tell my dealer.
