On my radio we can have SAT radio on channel 57 and then turn the van off. When we start it back up it always defaults to an FM station we don’t even listen to. Trying to figure out if that default can be disabled.

I would say the dealer should look at and replace something. The radio should retain the last tune, both station AND band. When you switch to SAT, does it go to 57?

I just got the 2019 Pacifica. Radio has an off button now but it blanks the clock too. I often listen to audio books on my iPhone. Each time I restart the car, it returns to the radio very loud. I have to go through the media/select source routine every time to try to get back to where I was. I'm coming off a Honda Odyssey which was much better in that department.

I have the same problem, when listening to XM radio it always changes back to the last FM channel I was listening to on startup. I have 2018 touring L . I thought this was very strange and wondered if they all were like this.

Thumbs down back to Fm after each restart

My 2019 Pacifica does this too and it's maddening. If I'm listening to XM and turn the car off and on again it goes back to FM Radio. I can't believe it won't remember the last input.

While we are at it, I would like the clock to light the UConnect screen when the radio is off. That black screen doesn't look good to me.

Snow? Palm Sunday and last Sunday, each day we had six inches of heavy unshovelable stuff that was virtually gone the next day.

Are you saying there is a way to stop the radio from turning on an FM station when you start the car? This happens in my car. I NEVER listen to FM radio. Only XM. But sometimes when I start the car FM radio is playing VERY loud. Is my radio defective or is this normal behavior? If it is normal, how could the dealer fix it?
