I've told the dealer about this after I had it in to get the towing wiring checked. It works ok when the techs look a tit but of course not when I use it. Also the radio will suddenly not turn on when the car is started. I have to restart for it to work.

Any suggestions for the aircon given it's coming into summer?

2014 diesel Laredo.
I have the same problem with A/C. Only seems to happen when outside temp is below the cabin temp. As Gustlock said it appears to chase the outside temp to guage it.

I find after 5mins it comes good, I just turn the fan down during that time.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Today Jeep told me the part " exhaust sensor ??" was still in USA and should arrive early Jan and I should get GC back by mid Jan !!!!
So they have arranged a "warranty replacement car" being a hire car from Hertz until car repaired. It is meant to be ready Monday.. we will see...I keep seeing other GC diesels driving around so why me???

Hopefully the part moves quicker than anticipated. You never know your luck in Jeep Lotto.

Be careful, that false sense of everything going well with a Jag is usually just before the door falls off from rust you never knew was their.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Went to collect the hire car arranged by Chrysler Australia on 23 dec... They wanted me to pay $240 week insurance for the car use.....Im still paying $240 a week for the car payments so I said " Not taking it"...... Called Jeep again who said part still in USA so clearly they are in no hurry and are waiting for a fast boat to deliver... The Truth ??? I do not believe they have a solution...... Jag still going well..... made by ford of course....

Tell them you will happily pay insurance if they in turn pay your car insuranfe zip aswell as repayments and inconvenience fee.... can't believe that they would even suggest that. We had a hire car for a month Jan 2014, and they didn't ask us for a cent.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Problems - Australia

Picked up the GC Limited 2 weeks ago, and from day one the Volume control on the steering wheel didn't work. Taking it back tomorrow, but I doubt it would get resolved so quickly.
Also, glitches in the U-connect. Pushing up on the steering control for the indash display causes the radio to go to AM stations. I didn't even know those were connected.
When my phone pairs with the system, it automatically goes to my playlist.

I knew there was a risk when purchasing the car considering all the tech it has. It just annoys me when something doesn't work from day one. Mechanically though, it is perfect.

Could be the clock spring. There have been reports of them playing up, particularly with cruise control buttons.

With what problem are you referring to IRT the 'clock spring'?

To add, I've also discovered that the Paddle Shifters aren't working at all... I thought I just wasn't using them correctly, but then I remembered that I'm not a F@<king idiot, and they actually don't work.
Like I said, I'm taking it in tomorrow, hopefully it's just a software issue, (but I seriously doubt it).
