Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

I have the latest version of the Uconnect software installed a week ago and a couple of TSB which fixed the randomly missing SRT performance app and the speakers dropping out all except drivers speaker.

Drove from Brisbane to Bundaberg this week and just before we arrived the car went a little mental. Wipers came on at top speed and lights went on. The wipers stopped but the headlights stayed on so I pulled over, turned carawong off and opened and closed drivers door.

All good I thought, headlights off and all seemed to be working until next stop I realised the easy exit (where the steering wheel goes up and the seat slides back) didn't work anymore and the memory 1 & 2 had deleted. A real pain because I am 6'3 and the better half is about 5'nothing.

Anyone else had anything similar happen or know how to reset it all so I can get the easy exit working? It is ticked in the menu options.

SOFT RESET:
This reset will retain your settings.
Hold MUTE and TUNE buttons for reboot. .

If that does nothing.... then:

FACTORY RESET:
This engineering reset will wipe all your settings.
Hold TEMP up and TEMP down buttons to access engineering menu.
When it restarts it will do so with SRT screen, and take a few minutes to get back to normal.

Sounds like a bad earth somewhere.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

You have the option ticked in the menu "lights on with wipers", so when ever your auto wipers activate your head lights will turn on.

Why your wipers turned on at max speed (for 2 wipes and then 1 wipe at slow speed i assume) when no water was over the sensor on the windscreen,i don't know, but it happened to me once only. I was going through some roads where the trees were shadowing the road on a sunny day, so
not sure why it did it, maybe some water fell from the overhanging trees and onto the sensor

Other than this issue and the cruise control fault it performs WELL.
It's the nature of the beast. Your probably used an underpowered Prado or Pajero.
I personally don't mind it. Reminds me of my 2stroke motorcross bike when I was a kid. Yeeha!

Exactly what it's like! Thanks everyone for your comments, great to know your not alone forum. Have had Hill assist and ECO OFF as discussed and it does improve it slightly. The reason for questioning the turbo lag is that it was supposed to have been improved on the 2014 CRD and I find mates 2012 GC CRD has a more predictable acceleration, especially in slow traffic.

In our experience (7 months of ownership), it is only the 'nature of the beast' in the first few months. I'm not sure when it came right but in the first few months it had my husband cursing and swearing.

When they (ZF that is) talk about it being 'intelligent' and 'learning', I think ours has.

We no longer have the 'lag' followed by the huge acceleration at a particular T-intersection (stopped), turn right and then needing to accelerate up the incline leading into a steep S bend. The unexpected acceleration was also exacerbated by the gravel dropped on that corner by the mining trucks each day and the orange traction control indicator would appear on the EVIC to give you some idea of the acceleration speed.

It's hard to explain, but it was the perfect environment that had the transmission going... well not to my husband's expectation nor anyone else's possibly, hence the cursing and swearing and carry-on like a robber's dog.

However, as I said, it no longer happens and whilst one could argue that the drivers methods have changed, I don't think that's the case. It appears to have 'learnt' and is now smooth as smooth accelerating from a stop and heading up the hill. The mining trucks still drop their gravel of course, but the traction control indicator no longer appears.

This is just our experience though. The transmission gets a workout on that particular corner minimum twice a day every day, sometimes 4 times a day - plenty of time for it to 'learn' and it does appeared to have done so.

Mine had the same problem until I took it in for the 1k km check up. They did a software update and hey presto when I got it back perfect. Not sure if it was a coincidence or not but all fixed nonetheless.
