Surround Sound on 2014 Overland keeps going back to Off
 
Every time I try to turn on the surround sound option in the uConnect, after about 5 seconds, it reverts back to Off. Is this function something that should only work on a specific type of audio? I have tried it on the sattelite radio and regular FM and it always does that.

I have found various settings that do the same thing, when the ignition is on ACC, but works correctly when running.

Do you have the 8.4AN or the lesser 8.4A?

If the "N" means "NAV", then I have the "N".

Yes, the "N" means NAV.

With all these horror stories I'm reading about the 8.4AN, I'm glad I got the lesser 8.4A...

...and I think I'll take that $595 Chrysler wants to activate a lesser form of NAV on my 8.4A and put it towards a high-end Garmin unit, one that has traffic and 3D...all for half that $595.

Mine seems to revert back to OFF regardless of the mode I'm in. And I do have the nav version. I was hoping somebody would know how to fix this issue. I guess I'll just have to ask the dealership to fix it for me.

My new Summit remembers that setting, maybe the latest software update fixes that issue? Though the software version I have has its own irritating bugs...

How do we know if we are on the newest software version? I have a few things that are glitchy as well.

There is a screen within the menu that should show the version, else wise of you go to the UConnect website and go to the software update page, you can enter your VIN and it will tell you if an update is available. I am not near my GC, so can't check what version I have installed.

Just an update. The dealership did a full reset of my uConnect and this fixed the problem. The other good thing about it is that even though they did a reset, it did not erase any of my previous settings, be it radio/navigation/climate/apps/vehicle settings.

Does anyone know how to reset the uConnect so that we can just do this on our own as needed? I equate this to rebooting my Windows computer. :) Hopefully it doesn't involve disconnecting the battery.

Edit: I found this but am not sure it is correct...
1- Turn on ignition w/doors closed
2- Press both buttons on mirror for 15-20 seconds
3- Shut off ignition
4- Open door for 5-10 seconds
5- Close door and restart car, Uconnect is now reset

They wouldn't tell me how they reset it. The info you gave may be worth a shot though. I figure a lot of the problems that people logged in this forum probably could have been fixed with a simple reset.
