    The stereo display on my 2012 w/ JBL entune stopped working yesterday. The display works when on AM/FM/CD but not USB or navigation and Bluetooth no longer works. I've also lost all controls on the steering wheel except the volume control and I can't fast forward or rewind songs using the stereo buttons when playing off the USB.

    Tried to disconnect the battery to see it it'd reset but it didn't work.

    The owners manual is zero help and the CPO warranty expired 4 months ago.

    I assume the stereo is fried and I'm going to have to replace it but thought I'd check here to see if there is something I can check before I throw money at this.

    In the event that I do need to replace it, I'm looking at the Kenwood Excelon DDX9906XR. Will this work with the factory sub, GPS antenna, camera, and steering wheel controls?

    As long as you get the PAC or Maestro harnesses and adapters, you’re good to go. Be prepared to drop +/-$250 for parts.

    What's the difference between the two? Crutchfield has both.

    The Maestro will also show a lot of vehicle info (gauges, tire pressure, fault codes, other cool stuff)
    I like the Maestro better, but it's marginally more expensive. Be sure to get the adapter for USB, Sat antenna, and backup cam.

    I replaced it with an aftermarket unit. Ordered the Kenwood Dnx996xr from Crutchfield along with a maestro, wiring harness, and new stereo surround.
