Re: Staples in the fender flares?

I have no staples in my 2/13 built Limited with black moldings. Perhaps a different supplier for the moldings that wind up being painted?

Re: I think my UConnect is bricked.. any suggestion welcomed

I meant via the engineering menu, but given your situation if that doesn't work I'd pull the neg terminal off the battery and let it sit 15-20 minutes also. If neither of those work, get it to the...

Re: I think my UConnect is bricked.. any suggestion welcomed
