The unit stopped working when transferring a call re bluetooth only static.

The transfer case is no longer a simple device controlled with a single manual stick shifter.Just like the engine and trans,fuel system,exhaust system,electrical system...etc etc....It is a complex electrical world/circuit all unto itself.There are approximately 2 sensors,two switches,and an electric MOTOR and a computer,that all work in unison to provide the luxuries of "shift on the fly" transfer case abilities.As a complex electrical system,it must be diagnosed as such.Basic steps in diagnosing a problem follows in order of sequence....1:pull Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)'s from the transfer case system 2:For every dtc is a diagnostic route to verify all the electrical sensors and controls and COMMANDS are in place anf functioning. 3: If all external electrical componenets are tested and verified functioning,the last diagnosis is 4: Internal transfer case failure.

Check with to make sure it is compatible. The phone is the problem 9 time out of 10. The cell phone provider can upgrade the software to make it compatible with the uconnect.

I can’t download my iPhone 8 phone book into my 2012 Grand Cherokee Uconnect.

Turn iPhone Bluetooth On:First you want to make sure that Bluetooth is functioning on your iPhone. Click on the Settings icon from the iPhone desktop. From the settings screen click General to show the iPhone General Settings as displayed in the below image. Notice you can see if Bluetooth is on or off from this screen. General Settings screen you can click on Bluetooth to configure the Bluetooth settings. On the Bluetooth screen shown below click to the left of Off to turn Bluetooth On.
  1. Begin Uconnect Setup:Now that Bluetooth is operational on the iPhone you can start the Uconnect process. Click the Uconnect button on the rear view mirror to begin. The voice from the Uconnect system will ask you to verbally select one of the options from the menu. Once Uconnect asks for your input say "Setup" to begin the process of syncing the iPhone.
  2. Start Phone Pairing:Once you say setup in the above step the Uconnect system will list numerous options available from the setup menu. One of these options is "Phone Pairing" so when the Uconnect system asks for the choices from the setup menu say "Phone Pairing".
  3. Pair a Phone:In the Phone Pairing menu you can modify current entries or begin pairing a new phone. After Uconnect lists all of the choices you should say "Pair a Phone" to begin the process of pairing the iPhone.
  4. Uconnect Pin Code:The first step in pairing a phone is setting the Bluetooth Pin Code that authorizes that phone to pair with the Uconnect system. When asked for the Pin Code say any four digit combination such as "1 - 2 - 3 - 4". Uconnect will repeat back the Pin Code so you can verify it has recorded properly.
  5. Connect iPhone To Uconnect:After you have set the Pin Code for the Uconnect system you need to view the iPhone's Bluetooth Settings screen which you can get to following the steps in Step 1 above. Before the Uconnect system shows up in Bluetooth the Bluetooth Settings screen will look similar to the below where you may have other Bluetooth devices showing or not.After a couple seconds the Uconnect system will display as "Hands Free" as shown in the below image. Notice it states that it is not yet paired,,,,,
  6. Click on the Hands Free device showing in the Bluetooth devices list above. This will open a new screen as shown in the below image that prompts you for the Pin Code you specified in Step 5.

    Enter the Pin Code and then click the Connect button in the top right corner of the above window. This will pair the iPhone with Uconnect and take you back to the Bluetooth devices screen where the Uconnect Hands Free device will now show Connected as shown in the below image.

    After the device is connected you will be prompted by the Uconnect voice again so proceed to the below steps.
  7. Phone Name & Priority: After connecting the iPhone you will then name the phone and set a priority between one and seven. Name the phone anything you would like and if this is your primary phone set the priority to one so this phone always connects at a higher priority than any other phone.
  8. Verify & Test:Now have a friend dial your cell phone while you are in your car to see if the music volume lowers and the Uconnect voice tells you there is an incoming call from a certain number. To make calls you can press the Uconnect button and follow the voice prompts.
  9. The Uconnect system is a great way to safely use your cell phone in the car.

My uconnect stop working. How do I fix it?

Try to turn off and on your Bluetooth on your phone, uconnect might not connect your phone automatically if it's not your favourite. You can see on your settings on uconnect. If that doesn't help, take it to the dealer, it might need a quick update. Good luck

Uconnect terminates when "Bluetooth streaming audio" command is given in my 2010 dodge grand caravan.

Select Bluetooth on both devices. Seams the uconnect is being canceled out by your Bluetooth. Or use uconnect as opposed to Bluetooth. Maybe seek further advice, I am not the expert on this one :<

Why won't uconnect work in 2013 chrysler200

There are a few things to note. The pairing has to occur between the Uconnect device in the Chrysler 200 and the Samsung S3 using bluetooth. I noticed there are 4 possible Uconnect systems available. Depending on which one you have you can check the recommended cell phone to go with it. Samsung S4 is defnitely compatible to all of the of them and SIII also with some. But that does not mean SIII will not work with others. It just means it may not have been tested.

Go to this link and select the vehicle model and year and then follow the instructions to get to the correct pairing instruction. If SIII is not listed I would still check S4. Should not be much different.

How do you hard reset the uconnect?

My Uconnect is factory installed on my 2005 Dodge Truck. There are two control buttons on the rearview mirror for the uconnect. For a long time my uconnect would not fully function with my bluetooth phone and then lately it quite working most of the time. I did a bunch of research adn found this procedure to do a hard reset. After doing this the uconnect came back fully and all functions are working. I now this sounds stupid and you feel stupid doing it, but it did work for my vehicle.
1- Turn on ignition w/doors closed
2- Press both buttons on mirror for 15-20 seconds
3- Shut off ignition
4- Open door for 5-10 seconds
5- Close door and restart car, Uconnect is now reset

UConnect stopped working

There is most likely a fuse, i don't have a Cherokee manual handy for that model year but i know on the Liberty of the same year there is a fuse for the UConnect in the interior fuse box. If you have your manual in the glove box check the glossary for fuses and there is a diagram showing what each fuse is with a number and an explanation of what each fuse runs in a chart. If the fuse is ok it might just need to be reset, pulling the battery negative cable and waiting 10-15 mins and then reconnect will usually clear up any issues and reboot everything, just be aware that if you have antitheft lock on the stereo that you disable that before pulling the battery cable otherwise the radio will be locked after reconnecting the battery cable. You can also try just pulling the fuse that supplies power to the Uconnect and leave that out for a bit.

However, i kinda doubt its a fuse, because usually the Uconnect and stereo are on the same fuse, so if everything else is working that might not be it but its worth checking before taking it to a dealership.
