Does it affect QL suspension?

Still leaking. Now advised the leak is coming from the upper sump seal. Parts ordered.

I hear you. Make sure they dont damage your crank position sensor or it will be out of action for 2-6 weeks as Chrysler Aust dont think its a part they should carry in stock... btw, this is the second time they are replacing the upper sump gasket on ours. Apparently they will fix it properly this time.....

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

First post.

About to take my MY14 GC Overland back.

The alarm has gone off almost every night since we got it.

We picked it up on Tuesday. I can't work out why this is happening. All doors are closed, I've double checked.

No real other faults. Pretty happy with exception to the alarm...

See this thread - Alarm that may contain your answer, it has helped a few.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Now the weather has been hot in Melbourne I have noted the outside temperature display doesn't update for quite a while when I leave work of a night. It is interesting that it seems to respond at the same point in my journey home which is about 20 minutes after I head out of the office and I get up to "aero" speed on the freeway.

Any one else seeing this?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

hi...i spowk to Jeep about this. im also in Melbourne...they informed me that you have to be driving for approx ten mins at about 60kmh for the temp gauge to change...this is because when sitting idle you get the heat from the cars in front exhausts so doesnt give a true indication...my car hasnt changed in three days becuase of this cause my business is stop start in the city and never drive for ten mins straight without stopping. hope this helps

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

After a fantastic 6000kms of ownership, I have just succumbed to the dreaded limp mode.
Electronic Throttle control (flashing) and diesel regeneration message along with the check engine light.
Stuck in forth gear and little power.
Tray back to Jeep tomorrow…..
The car has been great until now. Owned diesel cars for some years and never had a regen problem. This car was on the freeway only over a week returning from a trip and hash't done extended city driving in the meantime. I did however have cause to move it around the front yard three times yesterday (started and stopped each time) and didn't drive anywhere. Not long periods of idling though…..
:-(

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

I would raise some form of official complaint.
This is not warning as it should. In the US, the warning comes on before limp mode is enforced. As a warning should, tells you there is about to be a problem, and you can now fix the issue yourself.

Did your past diesels have DPFs? Many don't now, and most didn't in the past.

Last car of five years was an NS Pajero - well known for its DPF issues but didn't get me.
Just thankful we weren't away or towing the van like last week.

On the way home from taking delivery, I leaved the EVIC display in Message menu. Guess what suddenly pop up on this screen. It's '...regeneration in progress...' the total mileage was only 15km. So my hunch is that there is early warning message but only visible in Message display. Since then I always select Message as default display in EVIC.

No, it comes up on any screen, there is a pic form an Aus user on the speed screen where regen in process comes up.
