Default 2014 Radio default to on every startup?

Every time I start the truck, the radio, heated seats, and heated steering wheel all come on automatically (it is below 40F). Shouldn't at least the radio be selectable? The dealer was no help. I can't find anything in the owners manual and I'm tired of shutting everything off when I drive away. It's a bit of a distraction while driving. My truck is a Sport with the 8.4a display.

We have an Express (5.0 radio) and it does the same thing with the radio; haven't found a way to turn it off.

I got the Outdoorsman(5.0 radio) and I can turn off the seats and steering wheel so they don't come on if is below a certain temp(in the more settings on the radio). Don't know about turning off radio though, always left it on.

Turn the volume all the way to the left if you don't want the radio on when you fire up the truck.

That occurred to me tonight when I was updating the UConnect software. I spotted the mute symbol on the knob. So when I thought I was shutting it off, I was just actually muting it. I'll turn down the volume from now on.

The newest update for uconnect (13.48.3) has supposedly fixed the issue so you can hit the mute button and it will be muted on start up. But since the "radio" also controls and needs connectivity among other modules throughout the vehicle, the radio is set to be always on.

There's an option in "Settings" if you don't want heated seats and steering wheel to automatically come on at startup.

I updated to the 13.48.3 version - and still had the issue. It doesn't remember the muted function.

Anyone know how to send Chrysler a message? I would sure like the ability to be able to let them know they have an issue, and, to be able to submit suggestions that they might not have thought about.

Leave the volume turned all the way down. When you get in the truck, if you don't want to see the radio display, just hit the button that blacks out the screen. I think the button says "Screen Off" or something similar.
