UConnect Hard reset

What's up guys!! I've had my jeep GC Overland V8(max steel/Blu brown) for about 2 weeks now and the Bluetooth stopped connecting to my iPhone. I was on the phone with UConnect and they tried the soft reset which didn't work. Then told
Me to take it to the dealer and have them do a hard reset. Anyone know what this is or how to do it? Or will I just be taking the car to the dealer for them to disconnect the battery for 10 mins?

Thanks for the help!

Re: UConnect Hard reset

Uconnect Re-boot:
Hold Mute and Tune buttons for reboot.
This makes no changes to your settings, it is just a reboot procedure.

Uconnect Factory (Engineering) reset:
Hold temp up and down buttons to access engineering menu.
This will wipe all of your personal settings and take it back to factory default. It will also load with the SRT logo and take several minutes to hours before it will look the same as it did before.

Does that also revert the current software version, back to the original?

Re: UConnect Hard reset

It just reloads the firmware last installed. There's no roll-back as a result... you need to revert via USB as per a firmware upgrade.

Cheers,
Steve
