Unhappy Uconnect stopped working

My Uconnect stopped working the other day. I thought maybe it was the phone but no joy. I press the connect button on the rearview mirror and nothing. After playing with it a while it finally says "Uconnect, ready" I check for installed phones and it forgot mine. I go to setup and it gets like 3 steps into the setup and goes off. I reboot, same thing at different points in the menu it just stops and the radio comes back on.

Anyone else have a similar problem? It seems to me like the software menu is locking up. It is especially odd that it only sees the button being pushed on occasion not every time.

What is the button with the mouth next to the Uconnect button supposed to do? Mine does nothing.

Please help!

One of the last couple of times I went to the dealership they used a DVD to update my software. No idea but maybe something like that can help you out.

Are you not entertained? Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here?

I'm hoping it is only software related. My car is out of warranty too, wonder how much they will stick me. Either way I lose my car for a day.

Mine stopped working the other day. I shut my phone down and restarted and It still didn't work . I went in the house and tried my wifes phone and that one worked.
so i removed the battery from my phone and then reinstalled and reconnected to the cars uconnect and it worked. So my problem seemed to be the phone.... might want to check another phone on your car....

Hello Fellow LX-er,

Probably not a solution to your problem or you may have already tried this, but in my 2006 Magnum R/T with the REC radio it states in the owner's manual on page 80:

"RESET
In rare instances it may be necessary to reset the UConnect system. The reset feature is exercised by pressing the and holding the UConnect and Voice Recognition buttons simultaneously tor 15 seconds. Normally, you do not need to exercise this feature."

This might help

Considering that you have a GoMango chances are that the module was built prior to 10/2/2005.
