Uconnect random reboots, resets
 
Hi, I have a new 2013 Ram with a Uconnect 8.4an. It randomly resets. The dealer doesn't seem to know what to do. Anyone else have this issue?

Not sure if it is updating and freezes or what but if hold in the volume and channel search buttons for 4-5 seconds the radio resets and all is well.

Yes this has happened to me.... I was on the phone and the 8.4 shut down and did a complete system reboot twice... Also when it was could out and i had the head on full blast the screen was getting to hot and it displays a warning "screen hot" shutting down and it does this over and over and over. Dealer ordered me a new screen should have it next week.

I found this on another forum (thanks boomer135). I Was having issues with my radio reseting at least once a day. After reading another forum, I competed the following.

NOTE: do at your own risk!!

"Hold both the Heating and cooling buttons for 5 seconds, I have dual climate so I held both drivers and passenger side heating and cooling, for 5 seconds.

Then you will enter the "secret" engineering menu.

You can scroll down and reset to factory settings

the system will reboot, and you have now reset your system."

After The reset the radio and menus were completely different from when I received the truck. I thought I really screwed up. Prior to doing the reset I had the ram logo on the screen and everything was orange and black. After the reset i had the uconnect emblem and everything was blue and black. The buttons in the bottom menu were different as well. The settings were complete different too.

The next morning I called and made an appointment to bring my truck in. Well, when I got off the phone, I went out and started the truck. When the radio came on everything was back to normal. The only thing I can think is the radio download the correct software over the air through the night.

So far everything has been working great. Hopefully this will correct my reset issues.

Again do the following at your own risk.

Thanks for the Info Rimlakota. Sounds like it went to the default internally stored program, then got an update. Please keep us posted if you know any further results, that is, were there any further resets.

i also received an error on my radio that said truck phone failure. took it to the dealer and there were stored codes for communication lost with autoheadlights. Tech notes were followed from dealerconnect and resulted in rear view mirror replacement. No problems since.

Did you have trouble with the autoheadlights? Mine has been acting up and the dealer said they had to do a re-calibration of the system. So the problem would be in the mirror?

I've had my iPhone 4s cause the system to lock up a few times already and I've had it less than a month.

Something weird with the Bluetooth and when I plug it into to the USB/Charge port for iPod.

Typically I'll get in the Truck, I usually start it from the remote indoors so it's already running. Then, I'll plug my phone in to the port.

The radio will stop and switch to Media and start playing the 1st song in my iPhone.

BUT, on at least 3 occasions it's locked up. I've had to shut down the truck and wait for the radio to "Shutdown" then power it back up. I've not tried holding the Volume and Channel search buttons yet. (Thanks for this by-the-way)

It also has only happened with it was cold as hell outside.
