Intermittent power loss.

Post by chris.d.reynolds33 » Tue Mar 26, 2019 9:38 am

About once a week my Maestro refuses to power on causing the radio to not power on. I have to take the dash cover off, unscrew the radio to gain access to the unit behind the radio and unplug the power connection and then plug it back in. After that everything works as advertised. The unit is only two months old and the firmware is current. Has anyone had this issue?

Looking up your flashing history, it appears that the initial flash may have had some packets of data that were corrupt or failed validation. Please try to reflash the RR with a different vehicle, like a Tahoe or F150 or other non Chrysler vehicle first, then back to your Ram afterwards and see if that resolves your issue.

Hi Zack, can you mess something up permanently when doing this?

No; you can re-flash the RR as many times as you'd like with no ill effects.
