    wow, obdIII is almost as bad as living in nazi germany back in the 40's. Do anything to your vehicle which you bought and own, and the police will be banging on your door to arrest you. Holy cow, what is this world coming to?

    All the more reason to not have OnStar and those big Ram screens that upload satellite information.

    Another example of California's spiral into totalitarian government. The text states clearly that the objective of ODB-III runs squarely into the 4th Amendment's protections against surveillance. Don't think California politicians view that as a deterrent though...

    Unreal.

    Cds13ca, Yes the Marxist progressives in our government & abroad is evolution of the same tyrannical objectives. But believe them circumvention of your constitutional rights so they have more control over us is for your own good and were not going to be a disarmed populous in a police state but rather happy lemmings in utopia. See every take over by progressive government through out history most recently Venezuela. It’s for the greater good don’t-cha-know.

    The aftermarket will find a work around for OBIII. The question will be whether the benefits are worth the costs.

    FCA gets information on our truck via Ram Care, I don't know if it's in depth enough to tell them if the vehicle is tuned.
    All I get is a monthly email about current tire pressures, fluid levels, recalls, etc. Part of the cellular system that works with the nav i think.

    I guess OBD III will be one way for the EPA's Clean Air Act to still reach out and touch owners living in states and counties without any emission testing. The new 2020 ecodiesel might be worth the upgrade just to avoid OBD III.

    Over-The-Air is already happening on all vehicles with U-connect. The degree in which it happens is minimal compared to what might be coming down the pike. This is what we have on our trucks currently:

    *The available Vehicle Health Report (Disclosure25) is an email report about your vehicle that is delivered once a month. At a glance, you can review the status of some of your vehicle's key systems and quickly determine if you need to take further action.

    *Your vehicle will send you an email alert if it senses a problem with key systems under the hood. In an instant, quickly determine if you need to schedule an appointment with a qualified service technician.

    *By regularly monitoring key systems and scheduling required maintenance, you can help ensure that your vehicle’s key systems are performing properly, and potentially save time and money on future repairs.

    *The report will provide you with your vehicle’s VIN, mileage, tire pressure levels, scheduled maintenance and closest dealer. It monitors key powertrain, oil, fluid, brake, suspension, safety and security systems. The report will inform you if action on these systems is required, suggested or needed urgently.

    The specific systems it monitors are as follows:

    Powertrain
Malfunction Indicator Light
    Charging System Warning Light
    Electronic Throttle Control Light
    Transmission Temperature Warning Light
    Oil and Fluids
Oil Pressure Warning Light
    Gas Cap Indicator Light
    Hot Oil Warning Message
    Oil Change Warning Message
    Water in Fuel Warning Message
    Diesel Particulate Filter Warning Message
    Diesel Exhaust Fluid Warning Message
    Brakes and Suspension
Antilock Brake System Warning Light
    Brake Warning Light
    Safety and Security
    Airbag Warning Light

    *If your Vehicle Health Report( Disclosure25) recommends that you take action, you should do one of two things:
1. Contact your preferred dealer and schedule an appointment.
    2. Push the Assist button inside your vehicle and speak with a Vehicle Care agent. This agent can help answer questions and connect you to a dealer.

    *An Over-the-Air Software Update is a method of delivering new software to a vehicle through a wireless cellular network. Common reasons for updating software include improving quality or adding new services to your Uconnect® system.

    *Every Over-the-Air Software Update contains a list of what is new and/or what has changed. When your Uconnect® software update is complete, look for the What’s New icon on your Uconnect touchscreen.

    *If your vehicle is equipped with built-in Uconnect® Access (Disclosure43) or SiriusXM Guardian™ (Disclosure27) connected services, you may receive Over-the-Air Software Updates. Vehicles with Uconnect Access have a 9-1-1 button (Disclosure44) and an Assist button located on or near the rearview mirror; vehicles with SiriusXM Guardian have an SOS button (Disclosure13) and an Assist button located on or near the rearview mirror. Vehicles must be located in the US and in range of a useable cellular network.

    *For the launch of this new capability, Uconnect® will send out a communication to all customers via email. It will be sent to the email address used to register for Uconnect Access or the email address for you on file. The communication will be sent out in advance of your vehicle receiving the Over-the-Air Software Update so that you will know what to expect.

    *You need to have your vehicle in the park position, or have the vehicle in neutral with the parking brake engaged if equipped with a manual transmission. The engine does not need to be running, however, the ignition must be in the ON position. The vehicle should be outdoors if the engine is running.

    You must press the Update Now icon to start the first phase of the software update. You can select the Later icon an unlimited number of times. The first phase will take up to 20 minutes to complete. If the ignition is turned off during the first phase, you will be required to restart the entire process from the beginning.

    Once the update has reached the second phase, a message on the touchscreen will tell you to turn the vehicle off, exit the vehicle and let the process complete on its own. The second phase may take up to 70 minutes to complete.

    *Don’t worry. The pop-up is letting you know that your vehicle is eligible for a software update. This is a new enhancement to your Uconnect® system that allows the latest software updates to be sent to your vehicle via a wireless cellular connection. This is not unlike your smartphone or other computing device, which notifies you when an update is available.

    *After a successful update, you will see a pop-up on the Uconnect® touchscreen indicating that the software update was successful. If you want to know more, select the What’s New icon on the touchscreen for a summary of the improvements that were made to your system. For your safety, this information cannot be displayed while the vehicle is in motion.

    *The Over-the-Air Software Update can take over one hour to complete. You will see a progress bar indicating approximately what percent of the update remains. If the screen gives you the option to schedule the update at a later time, you can set it to update overnight, or anytime. The vehicle will wake up and can complete the update on its own.

    I've never seen any pop-up, but I'll be sure to press "Later" lol
    We really only keep the Uconnect going for the live nav traffic updtates when travelling...we don't use any of the features like remote start / unlock (with the phone) or find my vehicle.
