Check fuse, may be loose, or ground wire is loose, plug connector, something is loose if you can hit it and if comes back on. Could be PC board IC chip solder connection, another common problem with electronics these days in vehicles.

Good luck, FREE-PPV

SOURCE: amateur radio installation in 2009 jeep patriot

To run any wire through the firewall, find a spot that is both reachable and unobstructed on both sides of the wall. I generally use a very short bit so after penetrating, it does not accidentally plunge into other wiring or components, or I use a collar over the bit (a small piece of tubing, leaving only 1/4" of bit exposed) I sometimes also "cheat" by poking a hole in the rubber boot where the steering column goes through.
Whenever passing a wire through sheet metal you must install a grommet. (if none are available, you can make one by using a piece of rubber tubing or the cut off end of an old tire valve.)
When tapping power from the battery, you will need to use a relay and switch attached to the "accessory on" side of the ignition switch, to prevent whatever you are installing from remaining on after the vehicle has been turned off. Use fuses in all new power sources as well to protect the vehicle and your new install from damage.
In creating a new circuit, you have the opportunity to use shielded wire, which will prevent stray electrical "noise" in your set" not a bad idea to do that.
good luck

SOURCE: Heater, AC & radio suddenly stopped working....

Fuses are in the kick panel on the passenger side. If it blows again, you will need to find the malfunction (don't put in a higher rated fuse) Most times the blower motor will cause fuse failure as when the motor gets older it begins to draw excessive amperage...but don't change it till it is actually verified as being bad.

I installed a Kenwood radio into a 2014 jeep patriot latitude edition. Radio works fine, but there is a "radio off" message on the dash. How can I correct this?


i guess you didnt know the cars master PCM ./BCM brains.
talks to the radio, on the CAN-bus network
you killed the radio brain, now the brain is missing and dead.
so it complains. (all do, hacked like this.)
there is a radio liar box, they sell for this.
it plugs in to the radio
ebay has lots for sell as does every car store on earth.

google finds this easy
first hit,
even walfart sells them. (common devices)

make sure you know the jeep radio model number
the match that to the correct adapter.

not saying this is correct. but is what you need.

Jeep patriot won't crank


I had this exact same issue w/ my 08 Patriot. Had it towed the first time and mechanic changed the starter. Worked for about a week, then same issue. Found that moving the vehicle, even just a couple of inches, or putting in neutral helped start it. Issue stopped once weather warmed up. This all occurred last March (2014).

Until two weeks ago that is. Horn stopped working so I started looking for any corroded connections. I came across some relays under the left headlight. When I pulled them out, I found two had corroded pins. One was so bad that there was no pin left. It had barely been making a connection before I pulled it and now it wasn't going to at all. The wires to that pin were completely shot too. And guess what, car wouldn't start! Same symptoms as in March.

I ended up going to my parts recycling place and piucked up the whole relay enclosure w/ 4 relays and about a foot of the wiring. I used my smallest watch screw driver to carefully remove the spade connector from the recycled relay enclosure. The corroded connector in my Jeep completely destroyed its slot. I ended up having to gently remove the other spade connectors for the relay and relocated the surviving spade connectors to an open/unused location (luckily there were 2 open spots) and splicing in the salvaged connector. I used some dielectric grease on all of the relay slots, before putting everything back together, and was able to relocate the entire enclosure up next to the fuse enclosure (as recommended by by someone in anothe post. I apologize for not being able to find the link to it at the moment).

It's been working well for just over two weeks now. I hope this helps someone else.

BTW - horn turned out to be dead and I just ended up replacing it. Not related to the relays at all.
