Fellas,

I was playing around with the uconnect today while my wife was shopping. I can't across the "tire fill assist" option. It was selected from default by have zero idea what it does. Can anyone enlighten me?

Operation:
• The horn will chirp to let the user know when to stop
filling the tire, when it reaches recommended pressure.
• The horn will chirp three times if the tire is over filled
and will continue to chirp every five seconds if the user
continues to inflate the tire.
• The horn will chirp once again when enough air is let
out to reach proper inflation level.
• The horn will also chirp three times if the tire is then
under-inflated and will continue to chirp every five
seconds if the user continues to deflate the tire

Does the truck need to be running or on ACC or anything for this to work?

I’ve only done it while it has been running. Never tried any other way. Works as advertised.

Okay, now that's a pretty cool little feature. And it was right on the money with my favorite tire gauge.

My truck has tire fill assist listed on the build sheet, but no option for it in the u connect

I have sporadic success with that feature (about the same as I had with it on the prior Acura). Bigger issue for me is that my TPMS is about 3# off (heavy) at my elevation (7,800'). I use a gauge to check pressures, fill with a Slime compressor that has LED pressure reading as you fill, then I note the TPMS readings and base future 'on the go' actions on any change in the TPMS readings.

I went to fill up with air the other day and this didn't work at all. I even had my screen on the TPMS. Am I missing something?

I want to turn it off, but don't have the option in my settings. I am not running original equipment, so it beeps like crazy as I continue to fill it.

I found mine out the hard way and had to look into it (and then read the F-in manual to confirm it existed) ..
LOL

We had a few below-freezing nights, so I pulled into work before we opened and I had the rig running and grabbed my tire inflator. After a bit (as I was watching the gauge) it was like the truck alarm was going off .. or it was reading the gauge along with me .. HONK ..

OK .. weird ..
next tire ..
HONK ..
WTH!??

Master Tech came over and was like, "yeah it is telling you that your are at the proper pressure and you can stop filling." I was like, "BS DUDE BS - what is wrong" LOL

Perfect Idea if you ever have to stop at a Quik Filler-Up'r and they don't have a gauge, just the filler hose .. Nicely done, FCA .. nicely done!
