Default 2013 Ram 1500 Electrical & UConnect 5.0 issues

Just bought a brand new truck. Within 50 miles of leaving the lot the ESC warning light came on & stayed on. Cruise control will not function while ESC is in trouble mode so no cruise control. ESC on/off switches also do not function while in trouble mode.

Dealer claims they reset the ECU and the problem is resolved. 50 miles later same problem reappears and no occurs every day.
Now dealer says they are waiting on a software fix from Chrysler.

UConnect 5.0 radio system stopped working today. Backup camera stays on after you put car in drive. Then after a short while the camera goes out and the screen turns black and then blue. Intermittently, the back up camera will pop back on while driving. None of the UConnect/radio/compass/voice features will work.

This is driving me nuts! Even more so because Dodge seems to have no idea what is causing the issues.

Has anyone here experienced similar problems with their 2013 Ram?

Thanks.

I don't think you ESC is a software issue. And I doubt the Uconnnect is either. Find a dealer that knows what they are doing.

My uconnect 5.0 started doing the same thing last week, took it to the dealer and they ordered another radio. Going to have it installed tomorrow and will let you know if that fixed the problem.

My new Ram does the same thing; also kills the battery 'cause all media/dash lights stay on; have to disconnect neg post everytime I use the truck. I have returned to dealer for updates 3 times/ everytime problem repeats itself--last time two days ago and last nite gone again; it is a 9 hour return trip to the dealer for me and this gets old fast// drove chevies for 35 years and am beginning to think i was wrong to switch-
