My 2015 Chrysler 200S AWD has lost all functions contained within its Uconnect Climate Control Faceplate that is at the head of the center console. It just went out all of a sudden. You can't even adjust the radio volume or tuner. These controls can be accessed on the touch screen so that is a plus, but I am hoping it is something minor like a fuse. Could I be that lucky? Also noticed about the same time: my odometer is flashing on and off. Could they be connected? Has anyone else experienced any of these issues? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Probably not a fuse. The flashing odometer may be related to the Climate/Radio controls going out.
When a module loses communication with the BCM (body control module), a flashing odometer display is a common symptom of CAN bus communication loss.
There have been radio and HVAC software updates to improve module operation.

I disconnected the battery for 15 minutes and it DID stop the odometer from flashing, so thanks for that. However the Uconnect Climate Control Faceplate is still dead. I guess I may have to call the dealer...

I understand you, my air conditioner broke down a year ago in the summer. It was awful. I didn't know what to do. The air conditioner was five years old, and I was not very upset even thinking about buying a new air conditioner. I decided to tell my mom about it, but when I told my mom about it, my dad was in the same room with us, and he jumped up and said that he would fix it himself. But it didn't work out and then I decided to contact the service. I turned to this *** , and they did everything for me very quickly and most importantly efficiently and all the features worked perfectly they even added a couple of new features.

Did you ever figure this problem out, I'm having the same problem.

try pressing and holding the temperature up and temperature down buttons (on dual climate hold the drivers side buttons) for several seconds and see if the radio diagnostics page comes up. this will let you know if the panel itself has lost all communication, or something has just been disabled or gone wierd.

see if the BCM has any codes stored for loss of connection. you may need to pull the battery, unplug all the cables from it and reseat them.

especially if you've left you window open or had an especially rainy season.

Did you find out the reason for this problem?? It's just that I almost ran into such a situation, and I would like to find out the cause, first of all, to anticipate and avoid the problem. It doesn't sound perfect. I once had that my air conditioner was dirty; another time, there was a freon leak. On the contrary, there may also be an excess of freon, which leads to the termination of the compressor operation. Do not forget that contamination of any filter and any part can lead to damage. You can read more on Aircon Not Cold - Marvellous Aircon Servicing Singapore. Here the problems with air conditioners and their solutions are described in more detail. I hope you will find the correct answer here. Good luck.
