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?
