Easy Exit Steering Wheel Not Working

2015 Limited with Lux II Package...

My easy exit seat works, but not the easy exit steering wheel. It is "stuck" in the raised position.

I searched around here, tried moving the seat forward and backwards to reset that, tried pulling fuse F82 for an hour to reset the steering wheel electronics, figuring to let any capacitors discharge.

I can telescope the wheel just fine, but it does not move up and down. When I move the switch up or down, I can hear the relay engage, and after a few seconds click off. The steering wheel is just stuck in the raised position.

Anyone have some advice about another way to reset? Should the car be off, in ACC, or running?

Re: Easy Exit Steering Wheel Not Working

I tried the seat reset with the engine off, on, and acc position.
I tried moving the wheel in and out like the seat with the engine off, on, and acc position.


I pulled the 10A fuse F82 for the SCCM, let it sit for 2 hours, didn't work.
I pulled the 30A fuse F24 for the Driver Door Module for 5 minutes, didn't work.
Was hoping for capacitor discharge, no luck.


I tried turning on and off the Easy Exit and doing the seat reset procedure, no luck.
The wheel telescopes, but will not move up and down, with our without the memory system.


Next, should I try pulling fuses for the Body Control Modules or just disconnect the battery for a bit?


I am dreading this because of the blatantly incompetent morons at the dealership, and the requisite 4 trips it will take to fix, just like every single other issue I have ever had with my previous 4 Grand Cherokees. Once to troubleshoot and order parts, second visit to not fix it and be told they have to order more parts, and third to finally fix it, then the always extra-special fourth visit to fix something they screwed up or didn't reattach properly.


Anyone from the NYC area who has ever dealt with Manfredi Jeep (Now Island Jeep) will know EXACTLY what I am talking about. Biggest clown show of a service department on the planet.


It's easier to trade in the car and get a new one.

Found fuse F87 is another Steering Control Module, along with some other accessories, tried pulling that and then doing the reset procedure.


Any thoughts or ideas to try are welcome...

Hehe... Happen to know something about it. Every time I have to go there I stock up on Rolaids. Makes me question buying MaxCare ...

Go through the entire process I mentioned above, doing the reset procedure on the drivers seat as well as pulling the fuses I said.

If that doesn't work, it needs to go to the dealer.

Mine ended up being a "loose wire".

Mine was there for 3 days, as it always is for any and all repairs. Day 1 to look at, Day 2 to wait for parts, Day 3 for the fix, followed by the traditional phone call an hour before they close to tell me I had to come get it before they close.

They were even nice enough to park it outside on the street overnight up the block from the dealership in front of someone's house. I guess they forgot about the vehicle locating included with UConnect. I even went and took some pictures of it on the street at night so in case of any damage I had a leg to stand on.

Re: Easy Exit Steering Wheel Not Working

Sounds like its simply broke. Dealership visit it is I would imagine. Haven't had that issue though on any of my WK2s. 2012 Overland, 2014 Summit, and now 2015 Overland HA. Also worth noting, I do not use easy exit feature simply because I think moving the seat all the way back is a goofy idea. Nothing like crushing anyone sitting behind you lol. It would be nice if the feature maybe only moved the steering wheel in and up instead of both the wheel and seat.
