Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

My dealer told me my jeep didn't come with the led in the doors. Mine was built in Sept with the X package.

Your dealer is mistaken - You have them.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

this is what someone needs to get some ATTENTION about.

ALMOST 7 thousand views and still the dealers have to be SHOWN.

this is like the first step in winning and keeping customers.........called CUSTOMER SERVICE.

Yep next time I go back for my free oil change I'm going to talk with the service manager and have him show me my vehicle doesn't have the LED. I can see them using a flashlight.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Anyone have any pics of these at night? Could just show the dealer on your smart phone that other cars have them

When the scan tool is connected to the jeep, it brings up a bunch of modules, like a wiring schematic. The Tech simply went into the TIPM box, went into the ambient lighting, and noticed it had NOTHING for it. So, he went back into the TIPM main page, and found the button named, RECONFIGURE. He pressed that, disconnected the scan tool, turned on my lights and they worked.

My work order said, TIPM RESET!

The service writers name is David D' Ambrosio, the Tech's number is 435. The dealership is Rick Hendrick Jeep in North Charleston, SC. The number directly to David is 843 - 818 - 5858. He said he would be more than welcome to assist any other dealerships in solving this issue.

I have to give a little bit of credit, thanks to this dealership. They have been absolutely awesome from day one. They gave me what I paid for my trade, and also discounted the jeep down to $1000 below USAA pricing. When my WIN went out, they got me a rental, kept me updated daily and had it fixed in 8 days, including the back-ordered key fobs. Simply awesome. They also worked on the ambient lighting twice. Last week when I got my FREE oil change, and yesterday, after they completed a rapid fix for my upper strut mounts.


simple schematic the service writer drew to help explain to my wife.

Thanks to the OP and everyone else in this thread. I picked up a 2011 Laredo X last week and the door led's were not working. I wouldn't have known without seeing this thread.

I had to take the Jeep in to get a paint chip touched up (dealer had already agreed to fix when I purchased), so I had them look at the led's as well. Apparently I was the first person to report this problem at their shop. I was a little worried when the tech said he didn't believe there were led's in the door and then followed it up with something about the door lights only coming on with the key in the ignition, not when the headlights were turned on. I simply repeated the information I had learned from this thread to the service consultant and gave him a print out of heywaitfourme's post and diagram.

A couple of days later I got the call that my Jeep was ready and the door led's were working.

Thanks again everyone.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

You can't find info or people like this on any other site. That is why I became a Lifetime Member. Best $100 I ever spent. I still have a bunch of issues that I am sure will eventually be resolved thanks to jeepgarage and its members.



Bob.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

I'm amazed at the lack of competency from some of these dealers. I hope you guys that don't have them eventually get them working. They are a nice touch.

I wish the rear door handles had these lights. Retrofit from the front handles maybe? Maybe my first mod?

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

My driver door LED was actually tucked up in the door panel, but on according to my dealer. What is up with these lights being so difficult?
