Missing options in Uconnect 5.0 after upgrade

Hi guys,

I've recently upgraded my Uconnect 5.0 in my 2015 JGC with firmware downloaded from driveuconnect.com. After the update, i noticed that some features which were in the original firmware (e.g. Headlights Off Delay, Lock with Horn) went missing in the new firmware. My current firmware is now 07.03.05.

Has anyone ever had this issue? How do i get those features back.

Please help.

Yongski,

Are these features still available in your Uconnect settings? You can check by pushing the “more” button on your Uconnect system and selecting the lights button for the “headlights off delay” settings or by selecting the Doors and locks button for your “horn with lock” settings. You can find this information in your owner’s manual on pages 310-318. You can view your owner's manual by clicking here: Jeep Owners | Download an Owners Manual 2004 - 2011 | Jeep

Thank you,

Hi.

The feature i mentioned are no longer available in the Uconnect settings under the 'More+' option (Lights/Doors section) after the upgrade. I'm not sure if those features were removed on purpose in the new firmware. However, generally, an update should add more features or intoduce improvements (and not remove useful features).

Sometimes after an update features may be missing until the radio is reset a few times (after a few ignition cycles).

It's been almost a month now (and maybe a hundred ignition cycles) and still those features are missing

Re: Missing options in Uconnect 5.0 after upgrade

Someone from FCA called me up today and explained to me that the firmware I've downloaded from driveuconnect.com is for US market. The Uconnect firmware that came with my JGC is Australian version.

I will just ask the service centre to install the original firmware on my next service. Hope i don't have to pay extra for that.
