UConnect rhw on jeep grande cherokee 2013

My UConnect was working perfectly well with an iPhone 4.

In the last couple of weeks the Bluetooth has stopped working as has the usb socket in the centre compartment.


When I try to pair a phone the button (on UConnect) is greyed out and the iPhone will not detect the UConnect Bluetooth although it is perfectly capable of finding other sources.
I also can't delete a previously paired phone as it fails although it refuses to connect to it.

My question is does anyone know how to get to the engineering menu to reset the system on a 2013 ltd grande cherokee. I've read online and every method I've tried doesn't seem to work with my system.


Or is disconnecting the battery the only real way to do this successfully?

I've got a sneaky feeling it just needs a hard reset and I'd like to try this before going to a dealer.


Any help greatfully received.

Re: UConnect rhw on jeep grande cherokee 2013

Probably. UCinnect works horribly with apple products even in the newest Jeeps. I have a 2011 WK2 (JGC) and I have to hardware input my phone as the Ycinnect uses and FM modulator and is only capable of playing MP3 or WMA. So stupid as MP4 doesn't cut off the high and bottom ends of music. Why have great system capabilities when the RER is a terrible system. I'm thinking of just tearing mine out. With all of the recalls and such I'm still wondering if I will keep the WK2 any longer than needed. Extended Warranty ends in July. Amazing machine yet they cut corners in such basics to make it have nightmarish weaknesses.

Thanks for the reply .

For reference for others I tried removing fuse m12 did nothing.

Disconnected the battery and left for an hour completely fixed missing Bluetooth and ability to pair phones.

Must be a software lockup. Amazed they don't make it easier to reset the hardware. It's there but hidden so only engineers can get to it.

Mine by the way works pretty well with an iPhone 4s.

No text messaging but can stream spotify through it reasonably well.

Only noticeable issue being a slight lag in skipping tracks.
