Need help! My Scat packs software "upgraded" last night and now I can no longer select sport mode for the engine. In other words when I'm in sport mode I can only change the traction to sport and steering to sport, when selected for engine it goes back to default. I no longer have that deep exhaust note that I love so much. Anyone have any ideas?

What year scat? What software are you referring to?

Hi dharley77,

Can you provide more information about the update? Was this the over the air update?

Had radio unit replaced today . Engine sport setting still not saving and goes back to "street". Next step is more detailed investigation with dodge hooked up to some other diagnostic computers they say. Anyone had any luck with this problem being resolved? Car does not drive the same after update.

Hi gqmoneygrip,

If you wanted to have a customer care case opened with us so we can follow up with your dealership, we're happy to make that happen. Is your Challenger still at the dealership right now? If so, send a PM with your VIN and the dealership name.

Was there any resolution to this? I have the same thing going on since the update and just now realized it wasn't switching to Sport mode for the engine setting but stays in street 100% of the time.

Car is back to dealer to get checked out. I think software is written wrong and instead of engine settings being norm and sport, it's saying street on another screen and not letting it mesh. I'll update as soon as I find out. Everyone with this issue contact dodge so they can update this software glitch .

This is unacceptable. There are similar problems being reported with the updates (not over the air) for the 17's. Heads need to roll at whatever Dodge office is responsible for this.

Dealer keeps saying no one has seen something like this at Dodge after having my car plugged in all day. Dodge wants a screen shot of what is happening. I'm sure this is happening to thousands of other Challengers who have not figured out that their sport settings for the engine are all messed up. Let's hope Dodge hears all of these issues and gets it fixed fast. My dealer said there is absolutely no way to go back to a previous version of the software. I had no issues with the previous software and the car was running amazing. I don't need the Uconnect or any of its features except the sport mode! I have several high-end cars and I tried to stay away from cars that have these unnecessary computers and the ones that have everything integrated into a navigation system radio/system. If I could have ordered this car without the navigation screen I would have. I would prefer just analog gauges in its place. I don't need the navigation screen or all the other hassles that come along with it. Amazing how one little software line error can ruin a car.
