Default Voice Command/Bluetooth Question

so I just got my build sheet from Chrysler for my '09 SLT. It says my truck should have option "RSPP Uconnect Voice Command w/Bluetooth" I do have the REN radio, but when I push the Uconnect buttons nothing happens, I just assumed I had the REN radio without the bluetooth.

I did buy the truck used, so is there something I'm missing, or should I take it back to the dealer?

Thanks.

Heck, it says you have it. Better go find out why it ain't workin' as long as you have followed the steps outlined in the owner's manual on activation and set up for the UConnect system. If not, try that first!

Dealer time! The Uconnect system, if working, allows you to setup the bluetooth via voice commands.

So, just for my understanding...The uconnect hardware may be present, but the dealer has to activate it?

thanks.

just to "add to the story," took my truck to the dealer last night after the MIL light came on. Pulled 3 codes, 2 for vacuum leaks and 1 for "radio has lost bluetooth connection with phone" I am dropping it off Tuesday morning for them to take a look at.

I have my radio on & then press the symbol with the profile of a guys face speaking, as long as my cell phone is PAIRED to the radio, a list comes up on the screen & then the gals voice asks what i like to do & than reads the options, then i say CALL & it confirms my request & asks me who to call, i can say a name that i programmed in, or give a phone number, it repeats the number asks if it is correct, i say yes & the number is dialed
NOTE:
my hands free sound had to be reset after i got the Ram, it was too low to really be heard, i forget if i did that using the radios main menu or the radio settings.
the Navigation voice is the same volume as the phone volume

with the navigation using hands free voice, you push the hard key Nav button & the screen comes up, then press the profile of the guy speaking, it will pop up a list then read it to you, you make your choices as they are asked, it will allow you to change destinations, etc. while moving

The VOICE will not work well if your windows are open or your ac/heater fan is above the LOW setting
