I believe you may be in the wrong forum, but I know with my 2017 WK2 Overland, the owners manual does say that if it's left open for a long period of time, you won't be able to close it via the...

What kind of phone? BT supports multiple profiles, like Phone, Messaging, Audio, etc. When a connection is made the two devices negotiate the profiles each support, and the connection information on...

You also need to check the volume on the phone itself. My Android phone "helpfully" lowers the Bluetooth volume ("to avoid hearing damage") and if you crank it up during a call so you can hear, it'll...

I believe, but have no real way to prove it, is that the temperature setting is always "automatic". As in; no matter what else is set anywhere; if you have the system set to 77F, then it will always...

Thanks for that report. I've spent many hours inside dashboards of various vehicles over the years, so I have no concerns about the install.
I seem to recall last year Infotainment had a "Black...

On my '17 Overland, they don't go off, just dim. Depending on the photo, they might appear to be on.



I used AppCar to disable the "winking" effect when signaling, which I always found...

Cool. I recently jumped from Windows Phone to Android. My wife's vehicle has CarPlay/AndroidAuto, and I can see the benefit. I can see myself doing this upgrade in my Overland, since it *appears* I'd...

To clarify, you only lose remote start via the uConnect app right? Normal remote start via the key fob still works?


I ask because I'm toying with this option for my '17 Overland. Being in...

I'm pretty sure the USB ports on the UConnect aren't beefy enough to provide the current requirements to charge today's larger cell phones. So a "slow charging" isn't a surprise to me. But I'd try a...

The EVIC won't be aware of the battery status of the fob. Would be nice, but not currently something it does.


If you have the keyless entry system, remember that your fob is basically...

I do indeed, and I activated the "fogs with high" feature. I live out in the country where critters like to lurk on the shoulder in the tall grass just waiting for the right moment to leap out. :-)

Yeah, I wish too.


My wife's '19 Jetta has ACC as well. But when it cancels, it does the more intelligent thing of keeping the brakes on, rather than letting you hurtle forward. Then, when...

I put the Mopar ones (front & rear) on my 2017. Driving over a curb (because, Jeep) cracked a front one.


I'd like to find a set that's made of *soft* rubber that can take moderate flexing (say,...

The cruise control fix is completely unrelated to uConnect. Separate module entirely. There were no outwardly visible effects at all.

The U65 recall is a simple software upgrade. You'll be in and out in less than an hour. You don't need to wait for the letter, just call your dealer and when they run the VIN it'll come up. Got mine...

As discussed in other forums, this is an as-yet-unadmitted product defect. There's a plastic retaining bracket that's fatiguing and letting go. The bracket is molded in so can't be repaired, leaving...

Interesting. I'm having the exact same problem with my year-old 2017 Overland. Except for me it can sometimes take multiple button pushes for it to lock. And with either fob. But since the fob is...

In fairness, 7 years and 120k miles and I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see CV problems. I've owned multiple brands of FWD & AWD, including Japanese, and I don't think I've ever gotten that...

Doesn't setting "Active ParkView Guidelines" to No (unchecked) do what you want? I assumed it does, but I never actually checked since I prefer active.



You must not tow trailers. The active...

My 2017 Overland with Hemi is also on the list. Just appeared (within the past couple of weeks) on the Mopar site. However no letter yet. I'll get mine in soon.
