Question UConnect on my Cherokee

Hi there. I guess my model Cherokee is a LOT newer than the model pictures on the website as mine is a 2018. LOL Anyways, my question is will my key fob still unlock/lock the doors, start the vehicle remotely, and lift the tailgate (all from the key fob) if I dont keep the UConnect? And Im guessing that the integrated bluetooth in my Cherokee will still work even if I dont keep the UConnect subscription that came with it. Just wondering. Thanks!!

good question. it should, but i'm not sure. i've only owned my 2018 for a couple of months. maybe ask on a new cherokee forum. i'm on the new JL forum and haven't come across this question yet.

My 2016 does. The only caveat is that the remote start must be done from the fob, not from the UConnect app...meaning you have to be pretty much line-of-sight to the vehicle and it definitely works better if you and the vehicle are outside than you being inside. But doors, lift gate, still work if you drop the UConnect service.
