MyGig died...thoughts?

I was traveling out west today. On the trip out, everything was working fine. Stopped to take a leak at a rest stop and when I started up the Jeep to take off, the MyGig wouldn't work. The screen was blank. I hit the power button and the Jeep logo came up briefly then it would shut off. I disconnected the battery for 10 minutes and nothing. I can't even get the Jeep logo to come back now.

Thoughts?

Nothing happened out of the ordinary (bumps, water, hot, cold, etc.)

Do you have power windows? If so are the 2 little lights on the front 2 window switches still working? I know it sounds weird but I had my mygig die several times and replaced all under warranty because of this
If not I have no clue

Pull the fuse in the fuse box for the mygig, then put it back in. Should work. Unless it's actually toast, but this happens every now and then to almost every mygig owner. Happened to me once, tried pulling the battery cable, didn't work. Pulled the fuse, put it back in and magically it was working again.

Edit: Just in case you don't know which fuse, I believe it's M10 or M12. HOpefully someone will chime in with the exact one, but just pull both for a second and put them back. Should do the trick.

Craziness!

Windows still worked. I pulled the fuses and they looked fine so I didn't think that was the problem. Got back to the computer and read your posts. Since the fuses were fine, I didn't try the unit again. I went back out and turned the key. Sure enough. It's back up and running. Hmmm..."dat sh!t is wack!"

Thanks for the info!

Cheers!
