2014, Uconnect 8.4 13.19.0, missing setting?
 
I wanted to see if it's possible to disable the paddle shifters as I tend to hit them accidentally. I checked the manual :eek: and it indicates this can be turned on or off and that it's found under Safety and Assistance. This setting does not appear there for me and there is no indication that it is an optional feature. Is the ability to disable the paddle shifters really an option, and one I don't have?

I also noticed that the the Uconnect 5.0 appears to have a setting to control the brightness of the interior ambient lights but not the uconnect 8.4, is that correct?

the interior lights brightness control is the dimmer wheel next to the headlight control??

unless you mean the screen brightness, which can be set in the settings. I didnt see shifter controls in my settings but not 100% positive i looked at all of them

Ah, I didn't consider that the wheel you mention might control the ambient lighting too. I figured it was just the dashboard brightness. Ill need to check that out.

The paddle shifters are my main concern. According to the manual the setting for them should be here:

That photo was from last night but here in Phoenix our lows can be in the high 80's low 90's in the Summer.

Which explains this post from me yesterday.

Hello,

Was that a photo of your U connect screen? If so, this is just a guess maybe the option is missing becouse hill assist is checked? I know hill assist and hill decent use the paddles. Like I said just a guess.
