Anyone have their usb port fail? I've had this car about 2 weeks and it worked fine until today. Now it won't recognize any of my zip 'flash' drives. (tried about 8) Don't know if it matters but it's a 2015.
Hi artee345,Anyone have their usb port fail? I've had this car about 2 weeks and it worked fine until today. Now it won't recognize any of my zip 'flash' drives. (tried about 8) Don't know if it matters but it's a 2015.
Thanks for the advice Skeet. Pulled fuse 12 and 38, tried it, no go. Inspected fuses, both good, reinserted, tried it, no go again. Guess it's off to the dealer for me.This literally just happened to me on Saturday... I read a few threads here and apparently this happens from time to time. Pull fuse 12 and 38 I think, in the trunk fuse panel. Beware, they are really a bit of a pain to get in there.
I pulled mine. Started up the car. Voilla! No issues. Brand new car to boot, but It was an easy fix.
Here is the thread I found regarding this... Page 2 last post.
Hello,The samething keeps happening to mine. I plug the phone up to the USB and the 8.4 screen either freezes or resets. It happened more than one time in a 2 hour car ride a few days ago. The USB actually kills the Battery of the phone instead of charging it when using the GPS? Any reason why the Screen is so hot also?
I never got a display code but the radio display did not recognize that there was a flash drive inserted. The solution was embarrassingly simple. Using a mirror, my son examined the USB port in the console. He found that the center (male) portion of the port was bent over, not allowing the drive to insert properly. He pushed it back to center and now it works fine. Surprisingly, the flash drive felt like it was perfectly seated at all times. I remember that it stopped working when I was blindly changing flash drives while driving on the expressway. I guess I pushed a bit too hard and bent the innards of the port. This is the first USB port I have ever experienced that can flex and bend. Probably not the solution to your problem, but this post may help someone, sometime.What is the failure you experience? I have tried multiple flash drives with music on them and they fail. I can't remember the exact error message but all the drives work in my desktop and laptop. My wife gets the same error in her '13 Charger.
