HVAC system was not responding to controls. Heat would come out of the vents when set for fresh air, AC would go on by itself. USB port lighted up but no power or connectivity through it. Unable to synch phone to bluetooth. HVAC was not responding to temp or system controls. Tech later linked this to the radio. Radio replaced later, after wrong radio was shipped and a visit wasted. Then USB malfunctioned. 
Aug 2014

HVAC as earlier reported linked to radio linked to USB which also had a bad cable which is being repaired Aug. 26. At least six visits to dealer for these repairs. New radio presets NOGO. USB still NOGO. Neither is dealer's outgoing phone apparently since they rarely manage to call me. They supposedly contacted Chrysler and ordered another part for USB. Dealership sold 8/31. Good luck!
