Asked by Jun 20, 2015 at 12:26 PM about the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The touch screen works fine, but the controls & knobs below do not work/respond
(Volume, browse, A/C, etc...).  Any body have a clue as to why this would just stop
working?  Hoping for a quick fix, supposed to be 90 degrees today!

Se Photo : Anything below the screen is not responding/functioning. I'm lost when it comes to fixing stuff myself, just looking for some insight. Jeep dealer said it could be a bunch of different things since vehicles are over computerized these days. I just want my A/C to work!

I have a 2015 Grand Cherokee SRT and I had the same issue happen last week. I could still do the Nav/AC/radio tune/etc on the touch screen, but no manual buttons worked except the hazard light button. I assumed it was a fuse. I pulled out the fuse and it was fine. I put the fuse back in and everything worked after that. So I have no clue. This was after starting/restarting the vehicle as well. Maybe the fuse was loose, but not sure. Hope you found out what was up!

Same story with my Grand Cherokee as described by Jim. I pulled the fuse F49 (ICS/Climate control; it was fine) out and put it in and it started working again. I think its a cold reset of the integrated control system, by pulling the fuse one disconnects it from power, same effect would be done with disconnecting it from the battery and have a cold reset right there. The whole ICS / electronics section of the Jeep seems not very software robust in my opinion.

I had the same problem. Touchscreen worked, steering wheel controls worked, console knobs and buttons did not. Pulled fuse F49 as described above, fuse was fine, reseated the fuse and everything worked again. Thank you Jim.

Right on. I haven't had the problem since and loving the Jeep more and more (or I should say my wife is...it's hers). :)

Hopefully somebody will still read this thread!...But I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. Had the same problem just occur, all buttons on steering wheel and touchscreen work fine except for the center controls underneath the touchscreen. Tried this fix above (pulling and putting back the F49 fuse) and had no success. Still have the same condition. The fuse was also fine as in everybody else's situation. Any other ideas?? Thanks.
