Proceed with Caution

Before we get started, it’s important to note that you should proceed with caution when trying to reset Uconnect®. If the reset isn’t done correctly, there may be a risk of wiping out any system upgrades that have been installed or any personalizations you’ve put in place for your system, like your phone pairing and phone contacts.

Before you read the steps below, we recommend checking your owner’s manual for Uconnect® troubleshooting related to your specific model and model year. If you’re not totally confident in your ability to reset the system, it’s best not to take any chances. You can always schedule an appointment at our service center near Chapel Hill! Our technicians are trained in FIAT, Dodge, Ram technology and can get your system running like new in no time.

How to Reset Uconnect®: Step-by-Step

Depending on which Uconnect® software version you’re running, the steps for how to reset Uconnect® might vary slightly. For the latest Uconnect® version 8.4, this is how you can perform a soft reset of the system:

  1. Turn your key in the ignition to “Run,” but leave the car in park.
  2. Simultaneously press the volume button and the tuner knob at the same time.
  3. Continue pressing them down for 10 – 20 seconds.
  4. After pressing the buttons for 10 – 20 seconds, the touchscreen display should flash the brand of your vehicle (FIAT, RAM, or Dodge), then proceed to go dark.
  5. A few moments will pass with a dark screen, then the brand name should reappear. At this point, the Uconnect® system is reinitializing and will soon return you to the main Uconnect® screen.

Once you’ve completed these steps, your Uconnect® system should be running seamlessly once more! Keep in mind, these instructions are for a soft reset of Uconnect® version 8.4. They should resolve any issues with Bluetooth® connection, navigation, and small mishaps with the Uconnect® system without requiring you to entirely wipe the system of all the settings you’ve enabled thus far.
