Uconnect problem-2005 jeep grand cherokee

My UConnect is all of a sudden dead. Doesn't do anything.. no sound.
Everything else (radio/cd) works fine. So far I have tried to fix it by:

1) Pressing both phone/voice button together when ignition is on position and also off position.

2) Remove Ignition draw off fuse (#27) for couple of minutes (10 seconds to 10 minutes) and put it back.

2a) Replaced Ignition draw off fuse at Autozone (even though the person at autozone said fuse is fine)

3) Took out the battery for sometime (couple of hours) and connect it back. All the radio/cd setting are reset but Uconnect doesn't do anything.

4) Pulled out uconnect cables from rear view mirror and put it back to make sure connect is tight.

Appreciate any suggestions on how to fix it.

Thank you for your time.

Same with mine (with RAR radio, same as RAQ)

So far tried the fuse

Have been searching and there might be a dealer update to be done to fix it

The U-Connect module is behind the passenger side kick panel. You may want to check mounting and connections.

I had mine out over the weekend to check it.

All connections were fine. I took the plastic cover off and there didnt look to be anything wrong with the electronics like burned out things.

next time I am taking radio out and checking connections behind there

The bezel just pulls off, exposing the radio. Easy to remove. Just be careful. One guy dropped it on the shift lever and broke the screen. After doing that, he recommended putting it in "D" while removing the Nav/radio.

Mine does this sometimes and I just disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for about 2 minutes and then reconnect it and u-connect starts working again. Thats what has worked for me.

All the connections are fine in passenger side kick panel. Still no response at all from Uconnect button. When I press it, it's like dead.

So far I have done:
1) Took out Ignition draw off fuse for few minutes (20 minutes) and put it back several times.
2) Replaced ignition draw off fuse
3) Tried to reset by pressing both Phone/Voice buttons with ignition off position and on positions as mentioned here.
4) Removed the battery connections for 1 hour and put it back.
5) Checked all the connections on passenger side kick panel and driver side under the steering wheel.

Still not able to make it work. Dealer want $160 to check the problem and don't know how much they will charge for the repair.
Now I have VES error, Navigation says can't read the dvd-rom.

Greatly appreciate any suggestion on what I should do next!

Maybe it's time to unplug the harness from the mirror and try to "ring out" the wiring for the U-Connect button. Do you have access to the Factory Service Manual? I think you can find the info. on line. If not, I'll see if I can find something on it.

Thank you for the reply. I unpluged the harness from mirror 3 times to make sure it's connected properly.
Appreciate if you can provide a link for Factory Service Manual to fix this.

Many thanks

I don't know the link to it, but I've heard folks saying there is one. I have the actual CD and a hard copy too. Try a search and in the mean time I'll try to look it up.
