Re: Parasitic battery drains

See that, if you spent more time reading the owner's manual instead of taking voltage reading, you would have had one less problem.

As for not being able to turn the radio off, it is not a radio, it is a head unit that has many modules in the car sending info to it.

Power drain is inevitable with the Jeep. Jeep and uConnect have the ability to push some updates over the air using the 3G connection. uConnect Access receives commands via email. You can open and start your car with the fob. Something has to stay on to receive these signals. I'm not sure about the alarm, but it might even draw power while the car is turned off.

Have a Happy New Year!

Gee Bill, sorry to disagree with you but IMO you are not correct. I wouldn't have had any fewer problems. It still has to be updated. Ours will get done on Jan 2 so hopefully it will be a Happy New Year.

We don't get 3G in Canada. I was highly critical of the faulty Chrysler reasoning in another thread. 82% of the globe uses GSM. The USA is in the 18%. We are part of the 82% It will be interesting to see what they do with Australia which is GSM.

Here is the list of items the update is intended to correct. Can you let me know how spending time with the manual would have given me a leg up on these problems?
