I brought this up as an aside in another thread, but don’t want to hijack since this is becoming a bigger issue.
Problem: I lost any display from the 8.4” screen, it is completely black. The hvac controls are not responding, the heat is blowing with no way to stop it. I can get the backlight on the controls to briefly illuminate when I press the disk eject button.
Solutions tried: Pressed and held each button on the hvac controls. Started and shut down the car as a daily driver for a full day now. Pulled the radio fuse and replaced after 1 min. Pulled the - battery cable and replaced after 1.5 hours. All to no avail. Waiting for the rain to pass so I can pull the dash and check physical connections on the off chance that is it.
Before ordering new another radio, I thought I’d pick your brains for any other options.

Also tried holding vol/power+tune/scroll for 10-20 seconds with no luck. It appears the only button that works is the hazard light switch

Similar happened to my daughter's Jeep (Uconnect). Lost GPS also. They had to replace the entire unit. Was about $400 (we had $200 deductible) if I recall correctly.

Good luck
