Re: Keyless entry buttons

At least they gave you a courtesy car , if I bring my jeep I have to pay for one. I always got courtesy cars with my gm vehicles when there was warranty work done. Let me know what the problem was on the rear button. Thanks !

Re: Keyless entry buttons

Jeep dealer just called. Seems to be no resolution to the issue and they had to call chrysler as multiple electrical issues seem to be happening, from the security alarm, to remote start. Dealer currently has the car apart and going to use a trial and error method on my Jeep. I can't believe I spent 40k to drive a Ford Focus.

I got rid of my last jeep after a year because of electrical problems and bought a BMW 3 series which was a dream. Thought the quality would improve with the new WK2. Now I'm back with annoying electrical issues. So far I'm not happy.

Re: Keyless entry buttons

Mine still work. So I'm happy.
However, for myself I wait several months for the factory resolve issues and issue updates parts before having the dealer touch my vehicles. I have had bad experiences over the years with dealership mechanics fixing who knows what while trying to debug problems. You end up getting things messed with that aren't broken and they usually don't do a good job putting things back together. You end up with rattles and squeaks and missing screws etc.

Whenever I bring my car in I tell them to touch NOTHING at all without my permission, even if there would be no charge to me.

Of course, that is just speaking from my experience.

Angry Re: Keyless entry buttons

This is what I hate about buying 1st year new model none of the mechanics know how to fix the things . I don't blame them because there should be training for all the mechanics when a complete revamp of a vehicle comes. Technology has changed dramatic over the years and if the mechanics don't know how things operate, how are they suppose to diagnose the problem. For me they said that they want to start by changing the module under the seat (as stated above) but as said also in this post if all the other doors and keyless entry functions work, why would the module be a problem of why the back button does not work. Just don't make any sense. I think I'm going to tell them to skip the first step and go directly to changing the whole assembly on the lift gate where the button and rear view camera is . (If they take my advice that is ).

I was hoping Jeep had improved their quality since the last WK, however, i'm beginning to wonder.

Any suggestions?
Just go my Laredo back from the dealer tonight and they had to replace the entire trim unit on the tail gate. The button itself isn't seperate, I now have the sticker on the "JEEP" trim piece again by the buttton as when it was new. Works fine. I don't know what was wrong, they just sait it had to be replaced. Lucky for me they had one in stock.

Re: Keyless entry buttons

Was the camera part of the trim or did they use the original one. Also how difficult was it to replace the rear trim , was there a lot of work involved in taking it out?

Re: Keyless entry buttons

I hate seeing these keyless system threads, it uses the same system as my CLS did and it was one of the things that pushed me over the edge to get rid of it. Multiple dealer trips to replace multiple handles/keys/modules. Typically it would work for about 2-3 months after a repair and get progressively worse.

I think the angle is a bit of a bad design, noticed while it was snowing that it would just pile up at the bottom of the window. I'm sure the same thing happens with water and it is somehow managing to get into the electronics.

Re: Keyless entry buttons

Everything is fixed. I had a bad hood sensor which was causing the alarm and remote start to not work properly.

The rear liftgate chrome trim piece needed to be replaced (can't imagine how much that would cost out of warranty) which included the button. Everything is working fine now.
