Resetting your Chrysler UConnect is a relatively easy process, but you should proceed with caution. If you perform the reset improperly then you could wipe out any upgrades that were installed on your UConnect computer by the dealership, you can lose your phone contacts and pairing, and you may lose access to some critical features.

To ensure you’re doing the reset properly, it’s always best to check your vehicle’s owner’s manual first to see if there are specific instructions for your CDJR vehicle’s model and UConnect version. If you are unsure if you can perform the reset properly, you can always schedule a service appointment with Key Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT near Beavercreek to have your UConnect reset by our certified technicians.

Five Easy Steps to Reset UConnect®

There are different ways to reset your UConnect system depending on your vehicle and the UConnect software version you have. These resetting instructions are for the latest UConnect version – 8.4. If you have a different UConnect version, then you should check with your dealer to see if these resetting instructions will still apply.

If you’re ready to reset your UConnect 8.4 system, follow the steps below:

  1. Ensure your vehicle is in park and in “Run” mode.
  2. Press and hold down the volume and tuner knob buttons at the same time.
  3. Hold down the knobs for 10 – 20 seconds.
  4. After holding down the knobs, the screen should flash your vehicle brand name and then go dark.
  5. After a few moments the brand name will return, the system will reinitialize, and it will return you to the main UConnect screen.

The above instructions are for a soft reset of your UConnect 8.4 system, this type of reset will help with bluetooth connectivity issues, minor navigation issues, and minor glitches in the UConnect system without wiping your presets.
