Have you pressed the uconnect button on your rearview mirror and asked them?
Wow! Never even knew the button existed....

I press the button and it calls and rings but I can’t hear anything!!? Goes on for a minute then they hang up.... Unbelievable

So is mine 3 days in a row after doing the schedule trick, Will do it for two more days till the service visit. Also has a break light out now on the screen, but its not out. Guess the truck is mad at me for leaving it 28 days at the dealer and 20 minutes later another 3 days. I did wash it and clean out all the pine tags frorn everywhere.

Check your 3rd brake light on the cab. Check the bulb and look for any corrosion.

My uConnect updated without any drama.

Thank you
I will check it out as soon as I get another set of eyes. Although it shows the right rear being out and I can see both lights work reflecting off the garage.

yes mzk502 , when upper 3rd brake light goes out , FCA chose to have the right side tail light out in the dash image , they
did not include an other image for specifically just the 3rd brake light , so they had to choose right or left , they chose right ,
when removing that 3rd brake light it is never a bad idea to add some sealing to avoid the frequent 3rd brake light water leaking in .

there are a whole bunch of threads where water came in and carpet got mold , cabs had to be taken apart to dry everything up
then add a little weatherstrip to seal properly .

Stop

Schedule your update and wait one hour after it was supposed to update

Check vehicle and radio will still be locked

Disconnect battery negative terminal for 10 minutes

Reconnect battery terminal

Radio should be unlocked!

Got another set of eyes and it was the third break light.Replaced it, no leaks, but did the seal trick. It works now, THANKS THANKS but I still have the message on dash, how do I clear?
After trying every thing above, I got the Uconnect to update today. Question is what have I updated, have I added big brother FCA to my monitor my world.
I still have not added my new static wrapped box.
Thanks once again.Did the google search, tried several different things one of them worked it seems. May have been the key/ pedal three time.

I too had same issue. Had actually scheduled update for what I thought was 6:00 PM Left Coast time and mistakenly put 6:00 AM . Well driving on the freeway at 6:00 am and the update started while driving. Wasn’t my intent but continued my drive and update said complete after about 10 minutes.Once at my destination the message appears again as if the update never occurred. Now radio locked and no volume. Once home I disconnected battery for about 20 minutes to reset radio. For me that didn’t work and read about pushing the volume button and tune button together at same time for 5 seconds then release. That was the fix for me. Screen went blank for a few seconds then came on all working!

Here is the deal. You can update when "update now" comes on. It takes about 10 minutes. Then the schedule update screen comes on. Your truck has to be off and in park for the update to upload. So, schedule the update when you are going to be out of the truck for a bit. Schedule it for one or two minutes later than the time you pull into your work or home (grocery store etc.). Turn truck off and go do your thing. It should be unlocked and updated when you return. My mistake was that I didn't initially understand the truck had to be off and in park.

Sorry missed question. Only one light out, Break Light. I do a number of longer to real long trips. Going to start the spare fuses and lights trick, saw a thread on same. Cant be too prepared.
Thanks again for all the help.
