I've had my 2012 Jeep Compass Altitude for almost two years now and have never run into issues, however at the beginning of the year the stereo audio cut out while listening to the radio. Next time I turned my car on it worked just fine so I didn't think much about it, until after a few minutes it cut out again!

Fast forward to now, these are the symptoms I've noticed.. if anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate the help!
  • All displays work fine & completely normal, I can change between CD, Radio, Bluetooth etc.. just no sound.
  • When I turn the volume knob the display doesn't show the volume bar & numbers when there's no sound.
  • WEIRDEST SYMPTOM Volume will work completely normal for CD's & Bluetooth ONLY when car is started under 0°C outside, however if I park and turn off the car and turn it back on, it will not work - car MUST cool down and reach 0°C before volume works. However, while the volume works for a CD and I change it to a radio station, it will stop working.
  • Now that it's warm outside it hasn't worked in about a month or two.
My biggest concern is if I buy a new stereo head that the issue won't be solved if it's another internal wire or fuse... I'm open to suggestions on what I should look at before spending money!

You have a poor connection somewhere where when cold it’s making electrical contact. When warm with expansion of plastic parts and diff types of metal there is no contact. Replace radio
