Can anyone here explain any of this?

I've got a couple head-scratchers. This will probably be a bit long, but maybe someone here can help with this strange behavior.

1. Back when Rocketrancher was doing some research on how to disconnect his Sierra wireless, re potential hacking into our vehicles, he posted some info. He built a "dummy" anenna that fools the data card, and prevents connection to the cellular network, including the "911" button on the mirror (which now is always red).

OK; I made and installed one of those, and know I no longer have a connection. It reminds me of that, every time I start my vehicle. Yet when I'm using Nav, when appropriate, it announces "traffic jam 2 miles ahead, at ... ", etc. Which turns out to be correct. How is it getting live traffic updates without a data connex?

2. I had the "autopark" recall done; the one that puts the vehicle in park if you leave the trans in neutral, brake off, and open the door. I know it works. Sometimes.

The other day, I drove to the mailbox, stopped, put trans in Neutral, foot off brake, and wife opened her door. Vehicle didn't go to park. OK, I thought, that's bc I didn't open my door. So then I did; vehicle stayed in N, and actually began to roll (we have a slight slope).

I drove about 20mph for a block or so, stopped, put trans in N, foot off brake, opened driver's door, and Jeep stayed in N. What's going on? I saw it work correctly after the recall , but now, maybe it will, or maybe it won't. Can't trust that.

3. Also, while having that recall done, they did the TSB on the U-connect. Told me it corrects many issues with radio, media player, nav, etc. Cool. One pet peeve of mine is if I'm using usb media player, and select "SHUFFLE", it loses that setting after shutting off the engine. So I'd need to press 'shuffle' again.

After U-connect update, I noticed it saved that setting. Well it did for a while. But now it don't.

Anyone explain any of this?

Re: Can anyone here explain any of this?

Back when the 14 was new, you could get shuffle to stick if you used voice control to select it. After a firmware update that went away and you had to select it each time. After another update it seemed like shuffle was working. It turned out that instead of shuffle, it play song title in alphabetical order, but the setting stayed.


Try the voice command, although I'm not too optimistic.

Easier to point you to the thread. Lots of reading, but you can start around page 8 or so, but best to read the thread from the beginning.

uConnect 15.26.1 is buggy; I want to downgrade.

Sirius traffic and weather are separate from the radio subscription. I believe those are good for 5 years now?

Going to try that this morning, as I have never used the voice command for anything audio. I just usually touch the screen's button, and after the TSB was done, I noticed it was still on "shuffle" whenever I started the engine.


on edit: Activated shuffle via the voice command, and that setting is not saved, once the engine is shut down.
