Cool other questions

my other half is excited to go to the drive in with the ram because we upgraded our sound to Alpine audio system.. the thing is we can turn off the 8.4 screen but the 7-inch reconfigurable in-cluster display monitors is soooo bright.. can we turn it off or does it have to stay on while watching a movie?

my wife loves the part that if someone text you, you can hit the screen and it will text read to you, of whatever that person says.. but she found out that you can reply back with a voice text.. how you guys do that?

how do I know if I have the Active Grille Shutters?

sorry for all the question's..

Turn your headlights to off, that is the "O" on the dial. Also go to the radio, choose settings, display and you might be able to mess around in there with day, night etc. There is also a setting for intensity.

If you have an iPhone you cannot reply with voice texts.

If you have the 8 speed transmission then you have the Active Grille shutters.

You shouldn't need an app, but I have an apple phone so I won't be much help on what you need to change.

I contacted Chrysler Canada , and I asked them few questions

about the Uconnect system about vice texting, and this what he said:

With regards to your inquiry pertaining to the text messaging feature of
your Uconnect system, regrettably the ability send voice text reply is
not available at this time. In addition, the ability to download apps is
not available to the Canadian market. We apologize we cannot provide you
a more favourable reply regarding this matter

also I asked about the Active Grille Shutters but the answer he said is what I already know! and their were few things he didn't answer what I asked. . which is kind of nerve'racking because I asked if the shutters stop working by cold (freeze up) or break down over time (which everything does), and will the truck tell us If isn't working, and will the engine overheat. . he never answered me :\ . . . anyone know?

Well 2014 RamBoy, you bring up another question about the 8.4, how do you turn off the radio other than the mute button?
