Thanks SO MUCH for your efforts in keeping owners informed. Much appreciated!

I'd like to get the Satellite Radio button off the screen of my 500L, since it's not really equipped with Satellite.

Do you have the TSB number so I can tell the tech?

Wow, I forgot that! Use this TSB # 08-031-14. This is the latest bulletin from April 8, 2014 and supersedes previous bulletins.

Hey, thanks for the quick reply. I'm dropping off my 500L Trekking for the P06 Automatic Transaxle Safety Recall in the next couple of hours. Because of your diligence on this forum, I'm also going to ask them to perform TSB 18-017-14 (Improved Engine Starting) and TSB 08-031-14 (Radio Software Enhancements).

I'm at 12,600 miles and have been so frustrated with weak engine start from day one. Also, my UConnect resets without warning, usually while using the Navigation. Hopefully these TSBs will remedy!

Question for you: Do you have any reports of drivers experiencing a 'crackling' type sound when using the radio? It's random and quick, sounds like a pebble hitting the windshield. No matter what station, no matter what location. Any TSB for that?

Thanks again for your work here!!
