Uconnect Screen Delaminating

16239 68
Curious how many have had the Uconnect screen delamination issue and what you did to get it resolved. My 2018 Challenger Hellcat delaminated randomly last week and it also doesn’t seem to work properly anymore. My Apple car play flickers between the Apple interface and the Uconnect interface and doesn’t work properly when I answer calls now.

My car only has has 3300 miles on it but is out of warranty as of April of this year. I’ve read this is a widespread issue. I tried to reach out to Dodge Cares here but they didn’t respond. I’m not willing to spend over $1000 to have this pile of junk screen replaced out of pocket and then have it happen again. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

My 18 Ram just went through same problem. Screen delaminated from the top and spread down. Before it got too bad I ordered a new lcd monitor online. Local car audio shop swapped it out in 30 minutes. Common problem on 17 and 18 model years in all FCA. From what I’ve read LG has updated all the new replacement monitors with new part number. Sounded like they used bad adhesive in original part number. It’s a shame that FCA and UConnect doesn’t address this major problem. Only covered under warranty which is sad because this is such known widespread defect. Lots of folks get suckered into buying entire new 8.4 head units and it’s a simple 6 screw replacement of the LG monitor.

Could you give a link to where you purchased the screen. Thanks

While I was at the dealer while they got the screen info downloaded from the unit, a guy in a 2017 Scat Pack rolled in.
We had a great conversation of course, anyway, his car had the screen delamination issue as well.
Unfortunately his car is out of warranty. I told him to push Dodge to cover it (or at least partially) since this is a known issue.

I installed the slx02 screen about 6 months ago and it just started ghosting and delaminating again, it's the middle of the winter right now and 30-50 degrees out, so I don't think it was heat that caused it. Really tired of this problem because these screens are 6-800$ a piece. If anyone has a fix, let me know!!!

Where'd you buy it from? Maybe they have some sort of warranty process at only 6 months. Even the original (01) lasted a few years. I think they may have recently discontinued the (02) and you can only get new stock of (03).

Another option may be to bring it to a computer repair guy and see if he can just replace the touchscreen portion; keeping the LCD. If you have your original, it might be worth a try bringing it to someone...Although it's probably harder to find a good hardware repair tech these days.
