I have remote start and Uconnect 5.0 and there is no way to do this. I have a feeling that Uconnect 6.5 allows this. The manual should be more explicit.
There is nothing the dealer can do about this if you have Uconnect 5.0 since the menu options have nothing to do with the heated seats or steering wheel. If you have Uconnect 6.5 you have the options to shut this off. My dealer is putting this problem into some FCA problem system since it looks like somebody messed up on this. Hopefully we will eventually have a Uconnect 5.0 update that can address this issue.There are no TSBs released for the heated steering wheel feature not turning off. I would definitely recommend a trip to the dealership to have this diagnosed. Please feel free to reach out to me for assistance in scheduling an appointment.
No its not broken. Its just poorly designed. Some dumb engineer thought it would make sense to automatically turn on the heated seats and steering wheel when it is cold without providing the means to not have this happen. I am hoping enough people complain about this so they make a change to all versions of Uconnect to disable this function.That's broken.
You can hit the dash buttons to turn off the heated wheel and seats. However it would be nice to not have them automatically go on every time you start the car when it is cold.Have some people not reported they can switch some of the features off?
There is supposed to be a Uconnect update coming for this to disable the automatic nature of this. This ability to turn this on or off thru the menu should have been there from the beginning.I have a Latitude 1.4T 6-speed manual, with Cold Weather Package. Build date is 7/15. When the temperature is below 40 degrees, the heated seat and steering wheel come on automatically. I am able to turn them off, though. So the feature is working as designed in my case. But having the heated seat and steering wheel come on at all is rather silly, since this Renegade, being a manual, does not have remote start. Jeep, I appreciate your help, but I am perfectly capable of turning on the heated seat and wheel.
Good luck with your Cherokee. You will need it since it has its share of problems.No...they are not working on it. I know because I work at the Chrysler Tech Center.
Doesn't matter....I took delivery on a real American Jeep Cherokee. The Renegade is Italian crap.
As I said previously a software update is in the works to fix this issue. It will be configured as a comfort feature in Uconnect. They will not comment until the fix is completed.Just got a call from the dealership where I bought my 2015 Renegade Trailhawk. There is no way to turn the heated steering wheel off through u-connect, whether you auto-start or push the button to start. And there is no software or any other kind of fix. Chrysler just told them they are aware of the problem and they are working on a fix; release the car.
