    I have a 2012 Jeep Patriot Sport with the base radio package. The system sounds good when I use the AUX input but when I try and listen the FM radio, my reception is horrible.

  8. Cruise control not responding

    Electrical and Audio
    I just installed a factory cruise control on my 08 PAT. I checked the wiring twice and still nothing. Does the computer need to be flashed or will it recognize the cruise control after a few hours of running?
