Hello everyone. I bought a 2018 Dodge Challenger from the USA with the uconnect 8.4 system
There were only 3 lang in the system: English French and Italian. For a very long time I searched the forums for how to make a German language and I got it with the help of Alphaobd. But now the sound in the radio does not work for me, nothing at all. There is sound from the phone and from the flash drive. It is the radio that does not work.
Can anyone come across such a problem?

First thing I would check is the volume switch on the back of the steering wheel. Press the upper portion to increase the volume. Try the simple things first.

I put the sound and 30, but the radio does not play. There is music through bluetooth, only AM FM there is no sound at all. I think the problem is in the amplifier.

Welcome to Challengertalk ;) Do you hear chimes? Seatbelt chime, etc? Did the radio sound disappear as soon as you made changes with AlfaOBD?

I hear absolutely everything except the radio. Music from USB flash drive, bluetooth from phone ..... only there is no sound in the radio. This happened after changing the settings in alphaobd

As far as I remember, there was an error in the radio module, loss of communication with the amplifier. I think this is some kind of protection against coding. By the way, when I changed the region (this is how I did the German language), I still lost autorun, turned off in the configuration. I returned it, Maybe from the radio you also need to change the configuration somewhere

Maybe ChallyTatum has seen something like this with AlfaOBD?

Does "hear nothing" mean cannot tune a station? Do you hear static?
I suspect the region change caused the radio (alone) to set different internal parameters - how AM FM work, center freq, distance between channels, etc - and fudged the radio alone for your local area.

Everything is much stranger. The radio can tune to any frequency (95.7, 95.8 full step) even shows the rds, the name of the song that is playing on the radio, the name of the station and you can even save the station. There is simply no sound even when the volume is set to 30. I can't even hear the static

I drive a 2018 Challenger SRT in Germany.
Before I could use the radio here, it had to be converted so it could receive the radio stations in Germany as the US radios can't tune to 0.1 MHz like they need to here in Germany.

Suit yourself.
I gave you the solution to your problem, if you don't want it, you're going to have to live without radio reception.
Good luck.
