Re: Bluetooth pairing with LG G3 not working?

The problem isn't LG per say. The problem has to do with the version of bluetooth. Not buying a LG phone is no guarantee your new cell phone will work with Uconnect. As most people have reported here...

Re: Looking at a 2015 Outback- comments?

I will tell you my real problem with your statement. My 92 year old mom was the executive secretary for the president of Desoto during WWII time. The Dodge and Desoto were built on the same assembly...

Re: Looking at a 2015 Outback- comments?

Re: Bluetooth pairing with LG G3 not working?

I think you missed our point. There isn't anything you can do except take your new phone back and get one that has a version of bluetooth that will work with Uconnect.

Re: Bluetooth pairing with LG G3 not working?

Exactly what I was pointing out a couple of posts back. It seems the older versions of bluetooth are recognized better by Uconnect. Uconnect is an odd mixture of things. Some things are the latest...

Re: EVIC tire pressures

Re: May need to buy another key fob 😒

If you wind up paying for it yourself I have seen them go for less on eBay. In the $50 area.

Re: Liftgate question

This is an enhancement that Chrysler needs to add to its products. My 2014 Cherokee Limited's liftgate has 1/2 inch clearance when opened in my garage.

Re: ACC recall +trany flash

Re: 2014 Cherokee Mopar Accessories Catalog NEW

I would think so but they may also take a credit card or check/money order as well if you ask nicely in your email. I don't see them turning down a sale if they can help it.

Re: Extended warranty 100,000

You are correct in that miles and time make a difference. I had about 1,500 miles and my Jeep was about 6 months old when I bought the Service Contract.
