So now there is a little tug of war in the beginning of the song. Uconnect has the same buffer time they have been using and Apple has a shorter time, Apple keeps trying to force play and Uconnect is not ready yet. This has been taken care of by the suppliers and will be applied with the SW update that Chrysler will be sending to the service departments. I don't know the time frame of when that will be yet.

On the initializing, this is normal and on some players it may take longer depending on the amount of media that you have. Uconnect rereads the iPod with each key cycle because it doesn't know if you have taken it out of the vehicle and added or deleted material so it needs to read and compare. The comparing goes on inn the background after it has been read.
Hope this helps

May have to make a trip to the dealer

Kaisoboy There is a flash for this. Mine was doing the same thing. I also had some leaks, so I phoned the dealer for an appointment for the leak TSb and they also said there was a flash update for the steering controls and Uconnect they would perform. Mine is a 2011 so this may not be the fix for a 2012 but it never hurts to try.

Mine now works flawlessly ever since the update.

Cheers

xsdbs Yep, the iPod goes into a "I don't know" state and usually the reset of the iPod works great and other times it causes the Uconnect to spazz out and it needs to be reset.

xsdbs YAY. Glad it worked out. It's similar to when our computers or wireless gets screwy. They just need a reboot and we had to figure out which item needed it.

Can you try something for me? Can you play music using from a thumb drive? (I apologize ahead for asking questions, I have been criticized for it in the past, but I'm not at the vehicle and I'm trying to duplicate it.)
Does the USB connector still light up?
Would you mind trying to reset the Uconnect module by removing the M10 fuse (I believe that's the number, it'll be a double gang fuse in a white housing) or disconnecting the battery for about 5 - 10 minutes, then reconnect it.
Thanks for your help Four Flusher.

tiger3 Mine has done that on occasion, I just reset the ipod. Like powering it off so it has to boot back up. Sorry can't remember the button sequence, but this may help. How to reset iPod
I use a USB cable with mine. Once it is reset I plug it back into the jeep and I am good for another few months.

That's exactly what I get. elapsed time clock keeps going like song is playing. When it gets to the end of one track, if goes to the next, but no sound. So far, I have always been able to find a "fiddle fix."

Please let us know if your dealer finds a real cure.
02-05-2012 09:34 PM
FOUR FLUSHER Tried all that, song seems to be playing but no sound, also, The track button on the steering wheel doesn't work, guess I'm dealer bound.
02-05-2012 11:14 AM
Up Hill Bill Happens to me all the time. Sometimes it corrects itself on the next track, sometimes turning the "radio" off and back on cures it, sometimes I have to disconnect and reconnect the IPod. Been happening since day one (6 months)

Edit: I use the UConnect USB port in the center console.
02-05-2012 11:14 AM
kbwwolf Is it plugged into the USB port? Try wiggling the plug connections, see if that does anything...

Weird IPOD is playing but no sound, anyone seen that?
