I found a chrysler TSB for a firmware update on RBZ radios. This will probably not apply to most of the 2011+ vans.


  • Confirm you have RBZ RADIO (Model# located next to Aux Input)



  • Check your firmware (See TSB below)



  • Download firmware 8.05.01 (15.9MB) from
http://www.mediafire.com/?z3mrb86kem6rdsk


  • Open the .ISO file with your CD burning software and burn a CD. You can download a free version of Nero here:

  • Turn Ignition to On position (not accessory) and insert the CD. Further instructions are listed in the TSB below.



  • After the update is complete it will reboot and come back to the upgrade screen. Select No and eject the disk.




  • The only setting that went back to default was the radio EQ. My Sirius radio presets and blutooth pairing did not reset
