Learn how to reset your Chrysler Uconnect® with the experts at Gunter CDJR Martinsville.



How to Reset Uconnect®

Wondering how to reset the Uconnect® system? Whether you’re looking for a Uconnect® 5.0 reset or you are driving a newer model, many (if not all) of the same steps apply. Here’s how to perform a soft reset:

  • Put your vehicle in park and ensure that it is in “RUn” mode.
  • Press and hold both the volume and turner knob buttons simultaneously.
  • Hold down the knobs for roughly 10-20 seconds.
  • A screen should flash with your vehicle’s brand name, then go dark once more.
  • Next, the brand name will return and will return to the main Uconnect® page.

The above Uconnect® reset is considered a “soft reset” and should help remedy any minor bluetooth or navigation issues without clearing any of your preset functions.


Uconnect® Hard Reset Procedure

Now that you know how to reset Uconnect® in terms of minor issues, let’s discuss the Uconnect® hard reset procedure. This process will restore your system to factory settings, therefore wiping any presets.

  • Press the hot and coup up and down buttons simultaneously for at least five seconds.
  • Scroll through the menu that pops up and select the choice prompting you to reset factory defaults.
  • Once selecting this option, wait roughly 30 seconds while the system reboots.

Note that using the Uconnect® hard reset procedure will change any specific settings you have updated.


Before You Reset Chrysler Uconnect®

Whether you’re looking to reset your Uconnect® 5 system or 8.4 system, there are a few things to keep in mind. If you have been looking up how to reset Chrysler Uconnect® online, you may come across a variety of posts and forums created by owners of Chrysler vehicles. Before following their advice, take note of the following:

  • It may not work: The year, make, model, and version of Uconnect® could all impact the reset instructions. Because of this, there is a lot of information out there. Be sure that if you are following directions you saw online, they are specifically for your particular make and model.
  • You may accidentally wipe out upgrades: It’s possible that by following improper directions, you could end up erasing any Uconnect® upgrades that came with your vehicle.
  • You can lose contacts and phone pairing: If you paired your smartphone through Bluetooth®, Andriod Auto®, or Apple CarPlay® your contacts could be lost due to a faulty reset.
