I am in Dayton Ohio and my Challenger Scat Pack has a nonworking sport mode and I have had my car out of the garage and running every day that it has not been raining since the announced bug fix update was being put out over the air and I have not gotten a prompt to download it yet and my sport mode is still not working. do I have to post my VIN and request the patch at some Dodge or Uconnect web site to get the fix?

4 weeks. I think DodgeCares abandoned this post. Dodge has really dropped the ball on this.

Fortunately for me, my 2016 Scat Pack was not affected by this OTA upgrade fiasco. Fortunately for Dodge as well, I doubt that I would have purchased a Scat Pack if I knew that faulty software would remove one of the most important features. Have been contemplating upgrading to a HC but will wait and watch to see if & when Dodge gets this right.

Well Everyone,
I was told by Mike M. (works for Pietro Gorlier Chief Operating Officer Components) from Chrysler/Dodge that my car is "one of a few" that is still affected by this software glitch. He is contact with an engineer who is looking at my car specifically. Mr. M. is supposed to call me back tomorrow with an update from an engineer.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Just received an email from Dodge saying to expect an over the air update for uconnect
in the next couple days.

I am in NE florida
car is a 2015 SRT A8

Think I will delay it as long as possible

Are you a uconnect subscriber, or is this something that all of us 2015 SRT owners should expect. Mine works fine, and I don't want an upgrade. Ugh. Did they describe what it was suppose to be fixing?

I am not a uconnect subscriber
I attached the over the air FAQs they sent

these are the updates


This software update to your Uconnect system includes some important updates and adds
features to vehicles earlier than 2016 model year, including:

 Adds Apple Siri Eyes Free capability for iPhone owners. To enable Siri push and hold,
then release the Uconnect Voice Recognition (VR) button on the steering wheel. After
you hear a double beep you can ask Siri to play music, get directions, read text
messages and many other useful requests. https://youtu.be/Ha_Ur29ld-w

 Auto Play can now be configured. The Auto Play feature begins playing music as soon
as a USB Media device is connected to one of the vehicle’s Media USB ports. The
default setting is ‘OFF’, you can turn Auto Play ‘on’ by going to Settings, then selecting
Audio.

 Adds Do Not Disturb text message feature. You can disable notifications from incoming
calls and texts, allowing you to keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

 Adds Drag and Drop Menu Bar. Just press the Apps icon, then press and hold the
selected App. Drag the app to the main menu bar for quick access.

Does anyone know if you can downgrade to version 16.33.29 which I pulled off the uconnect site for my 2016 Scat Pack? I really don't want to make matters worse, but I haven't seen any updates on this issue. Thanks!

Nope. I already tried it. If you load it into a USB and try to install it the car will give you a "lower version" error and won't install it.

I just got my car back today. Dodge technician traveled to my dealer and fixed the Uconnect/Sport Mode problem. :)
Thanks Andrea (Dodge Cares) and Michael MacDonald (FCA.)
Can you send that Dodge technician to Dayton Ohio the service people here don't have a clue to what is going on with this glitch or the patch to fix it that we were told was being put out weeks ago and my Challenger is still in lame duck mode.:frown:

Hi everyone,

A software patch was sent out to 2015 manual transmission Chargers and Challenger to fix the sport mode deletion concern, if you are part of this population and have not received the update yet please send us a PM with your VIN.

If you are not part of this population but are experiencing the sport mode deletion concern please send us a PM with your VIN if you haven't done so already so I can pass it along to our engineering team for further investigation.

To get a little specific for a moment, has anyone with a 2015/16 R/T A8 STP, installed the OVA patch recently and not lost sport button functionality? I am still hesitant to upgrade. Thanks.
