    Static Noise throughout all Speakers/Radio

    Today, while driving I was trying to scroll fast though a list of folders on a USB media source and everything now that comes through the speaker system is static sounding and garbled.

    Uconnect not automatically playing from bluetooth, changing audio source

    This issue just began in the past week, and it's driving me absolutely bonkers. In every other bluetooth enabled vehicle I've ever been inside of, when you turn it on it just goes back to your bluetooth or whatever was on last as your source. My truck has recently began turning to FM or XM radio...

    UConnect - contacts disappearing from radio

    2020 Ram - 8.4" UConnect - Samsung / Android Auto I will "save" a contact after a phone call in the top tabs of the UConnect screen. The contact will be saved for awhile, maybe a day, maybe a few days. At some point all the contacts will just erase and the "HOLD to save" will be back up. Any...

    Just wondering if anybody has all the part numbers necessary to make this conversion as well as any information I may need to do so I’ve read through a lot of threads but haven’t seen it just laid out in a simple form. My truck is a 2028 Dodge ram 5500 diesel rollback.

    Distortion/Static through all speakers

    Earlier today for the first time after 37k miles out of nowhere my speakers started to put out a high pitch distortion sound when anything played though the speakers. This would happen with computer speaking commands, Bluetooth, AM, FM, Sirius XM, and USB media. Note that turning the volume to...

    Hey guys! I have searched all the threads about conversion from 5 inch to 8.4 inch. I was able to buy on this forum a 8.4 radio that has the dual zone bezel. My original radio has a single zone 5 inch. After searching I found the confirmation that a single zone bezel works well for the...

    Why does radio power button turn off display?

    I don't understand the point of the radio power button on my 12" UC. In our BMW, the radio power button is basically a mute button (or play/pause button when CarPlay is connected). In UConnect, it seems to both mute/pause the audio as well as turn the entire screen off. This makes no sense...

    When listening to XM radio the volume is significantly lower than other inputs. Even maxed out it just isn't as loud. I thought about making a STAR case but figured I would do a little research first. Mine is the first Longhorn that has landed at our store and one of our customers has a Limited...
