I don't know.
Have you checked the stored "messages" screen to see if that particular amber "telltale" indication is leaving a message behind each time?? If not, there may be a non-stored message on the screen for 5 seconds after the light appears each time.
You are right that it is not in the US manuals for the Renegade. This warning light is however in the UK edition (EU-english) of the manual on page 56.I am also see this warning light and it is not in the user manual as you said.
The dealer tech will be able tell you more once they scan for fault codes via the diagnostic port. The more they try to make modern cars fool-proof they manage to make them more complicated than necessary. It could be something minor... or it could be the tip of an iceberg. Since it's in warranty, best to have it checked out.Sometimes it stays on for just a minute sometimes the entire trip. I will keep you posted if I learn anything further.
Nick, my dealer could not resolve the issue. The "Sound System Unavailable" light still comes on occasionally. They are communicating with Chrysler, but they are not getting very far. Could you please give me more specifics about how they fixed your issue. If you could tell me what you invoice says (what exactly did they fix), I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.I had 2 messages. This was one of them for the sound system. The 2nd was 4wd service.
Took it in.
"Poor connection on a panel that is under the feet of the passenger seat."
Picking up today.
Thanks for the suggestion. However, the warning light comes on immediately when the car is first started, before any gear is selected. It comes on with or without the seatbelt on. It is very random. I'll keep watching it to pinpoint when it is coming on, but so far it is very random.It looks like the Seat Belt not on nag warning. In many Automotive computer program, the sound system is disabled if you engage a gear with your seat belt off. Make sure your belt is on prior to selecting a gear, or check the seatbelt switches. This seems to potentially fit the problem described.
