Re: 2014 8.4AN Uconnect Update to 15.06.1

Bummer. A free USB key preloaded with Uconnect for the '14s and new maps would be a very nice gesture along the lines of the parts certificates for victims of the recalls.

Re: MIL Light On

Autozone reads for free.

If solid, it should clear soon, but if you are loathe to go to a dealer, pick up a scanner/reset tool at Autozone or similar.
