Uconnect Security/Anti-Theft Code
I own a Jeep renegade model 2015 with a "UCONNECT® 5.0/RA2".
I read in the manual provided with the car that for security reasons the Uconnect Radio locks in case of theft attempt (or when the car is out of battery) and needs a 4 digit security code to unlock. This 4 digit security code is written on a card which is provided together with the service manual.
Unfortunately when I bought the car, the card with the 4digit security code was not included in the car's service manual.
I contacted my dealer and he advised that the only way to order a new card is to take the Uconnect radio out of my dashboard in order to view the product code (serial number). With the product code they can then order the new Uconnect card with the security code.
Do you know if there is any other method to view the product code without having to take out the Uconnect radio?
Is there any other way to order the 4 digit security card? Maybe I can see this info in the Uconnect System settings? Maybe they can do that if I just give the Vin code of the car?
The car is brand new and I would not want to cause any damage to it, or create any creaking noises in the dashboard etc by taking out the Radio.
Any reply will be very much appreciated.
