Default Uconnect 8.4 Radio Reboots whenever

Hello All, I have a 2013 Ram 1500 Crew with the Laramie package. It also has the 8.4 Uconnect entertainment package with Navigation.

Does anybody out there ever experience the computer rebooting when ever it wants to and all the gauges on the dash going to zero and then the Ram Head shows up on the dashboard as if you just started the car, even when you are cruising down the highway at 60 MPH?

I have also noticed the Thermometer (outside temp) gets stuck at a temperature that is definitely not right the real temp outside was 94 and the truck was telling me it was 77.

Also the navigation had me off route by close to 100 yards and was getting pissy with me because I was off route and trying to get me back to the road that I was already on.

This also affected my use of the WiFi as well because it could not receive the signals for my purchase.

Just wondering if anyone else out there had experienced this problem and what was done to fix it.

Ram has replaced my head unit and the rebooting still happens. The navigation has improved. They also told me that along the firewall there is a wiring harness that connects the computer to the truck and that sometimes people kick it with their foot causing a bad connection. They installed some wire ties to hold the connector in place, but yet I still have the issue.

Please let me know if you have similar problems and what the resolution is.

steveo00 will become famous soon enough

Sounds exactly the same as the issues I'm having in my 2011 Laramie. And they only started after they updated my ECM. I'm going to try to record the issue and take the video to the dealership next week to see what they can do. Anyone else having these issues.???

I had the U connect reset a couple of times. The other day I was putting up my driver's window and when it got up halfway and I let go of the button, the window went down by itself. It happened at the same time the UConnect was resetting.
