Thanks. I didn't mean to hijack this poor guys thread! I wish I could answer his question. I know with the non-touchscreen radios, there is an "aux" button that you have to select in order to listen to something through the aux port. Plug something into the aux port, and then select it by pushing the aux button. Is there such a button or switch in order to use the USB? I would think that just by plugging in something via USB would not necessarily over-ride what you are listening to. I would think you would have to select it.
I looked at the links. The part number for the same radio, on the Jeep link, the only difference being chrome ringed knobs or black knobs, is completely different! No wonder I am having the part number blues! The RES radio for the Caliber is the one that I have (it looks the same!), but it probably has a different part number, and therefore won't work! If and when I ever solve this, I'll list the parts by Mopar number so someone else won't have to go through this.
If you go to "For Owners" and then to the "Mopar buy it link", select 2011 Nitro accessories, and all of the radios are there. It's weird that there are only 2 choices now, if one were to order a new Nitro.
