Fuses mislabeled?
 
I feel like an idiot. I installed a Lockpick CHR550 with rear camera. Worked great. Tried the 0-60 timer and it froze on that TV "Channel" would not leave. To reset I looked online and the simplest thing to do is pull the radio fuse. I have a 2013 JK, so the book clearly says it is a 15 amp fuse in M10. Pulled it - nothing. Thought I did not have it out long enough so I tried again - this time with the radio on - it is not M10. Unless I am totally misreading the fusebox, that fuse is not controlling the radio.

Did I miss something? Was able to reboot by pulling the Lockpick cable, but still confused.

Try fuse M12, 30 amp.

Thanks! I was looking in the owners manual that just arrived. Will have to see if they sent wrong year.

It's M12 on my 2008, too, so I imagine it's the same on all the JKs.

ok just to prove I am not crazy - I assumed RADIO meant radio.

My 2008 owner's manual shows the same thing.
Fuse M10 doesn't appear to be radio related in the 2008 or 2013 wiring diagrams, though.

RADIO has two circuits - always hot and switched.

Always hot (M10) does not completely remove all power (pulling it should still allow the radio to play when switched circuit is powered to acc or ign - and radio will turn off instantly with key regardless of delay setting - but will not show the display or answer phone etc when the radio is off) - switched (M12) is the one that should fully reset it - may even need BOTH pulled.

Very poor labeling.

Thanks! That makes sense. In any event, I got it rebooted - their customer service is suggesting i need a firmware update that should fix the problem.

Do you have a wiring diagram that shows what is fed by fuse M10?

No - the only wiring diagrams I have are the ones on disc that only show whats needed per trouble code.
