Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Well it's been running absolutely great for the last few months with NO major issues. Have been noticing a slight increase in Diesel clatter during its warm up cycle but disappeared once reaching normal operating temperature, so was not to concerned. Then yesterday after a 100km drive, turned it off for about 10 mins and restarted with a much louder clatter than normal, began to drive off and the clatter became excessive (again sounding like an engine with collapsed lifters) and was noticeably down on power for about 10-15 seconds until it all came good. This was an issue I had before and had the updated done for detonation that re-programmed the ECU earlier in the year and has been fine since for the excessive clatter. Due for it's 20K this month so back to the Service Department I guess?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Yesterday i had the Service Air Suspension light come on at start up. After driving noticed it was still on and the Air suspension would not raise or lower. Also the cruise control would turn on but not lock a speed.
The orange warning light on the dash stayed on as well.

I was booked in to get the sump plate fitted yesterday anyway so the dealer was able to squeeze me in and put the computer onto the car. It looks like it will need a new Steering Control Module (SCM)
Luckly again that it is in stock and in sydney so getting it fitted this morning.

Slight delay on my long weekend away 4wding but hopefully should be back on the road by lunch time.

Throttle body service light on at 3000 D said a hose had come off
Throttle body service light and blocked exhaust warning at 6000k. D did a diesel burn to clear exhaust, using my diesel, then found a exhaust temp sensor was faulty...3 days later.
Had recall number 4
Changed plates to "RECALL" today.

This got worse and the A/C became less effective. It is all fixed now by the dealer. It was a faulty TX valve. Apparently it is not an uncommon fault, so something to watch out for.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - San Diego

1st: When I plug in my phone to get a charge while listening to Bluetooth music, it will automatically start to play through the USB.....no Problem.
although my phone doesn't seem to recognize that music is playing so my phone wont show a playlist......I have no issue with that.
the PROBLEM is, after a song or two (or for the first three months, track 2 on Drake's, "Never be the same" mixtape) it freezes up, and remains that way for hours. When this happens both Bluetooth and USB refuse to play leaving me the use of regular, XM radio or the CD player.
What's up with that?
It is to the point now where [god forbid] i must charge my phone, I will switch it immediately from the auto USB once plugged to anything but in fear of freezing my music.

2nd: I live in SUnny California, and after 6000 mi. I changed my oil (filter, reset monitoring etc..) and now at 8836, my oil gauge says that I've reached 51% oil life, which is lower than when I changed it, 2-3 months ago.
What's up with that? Is that normal?
From work to home and back is less than 6 miles, and I don't cruise too tough...................help please.

3rd: Now when driving over my complexes speed bumps, my overhead light will come on [chime included]. I do not fly over them, so
WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Probably a question Snuke can answer - how can I tell by looking at my vehicle's build sheet, whether my GC has the load-leveling rear suspension or not?


Cheers, Simon

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

If you don't have Quadra Lift, you have it.

Actually, that is technically wrong as QL will also level the load. It's standard spec on all Aus 4x4s.
