Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

After taking it in to a new dealer and explaining in detail that it appears to be the TIPM causing the issue they decided to... order in new door cards. I said over and over that others were having it fixed this way and even talked to a US based service manager who had already fixed one GC - but still no go! They did hook up the wifi device to check modules for updates but it came up empty. When I asked if they could reload the current file they didn't seem to think that could be done.

Chrysler Canada and Chrysler USA must be on different service bulletin systems or something becuase nobody seems to know what to do up here and cannot find anything within the "system".

I am thankfull this new dealer is giving it an honest shot and are tying to fix the problem. They have at least acknowledged there is an issue and told me they are looking into it further so I'm going to wait it out for now. Still don't quite understand why they can't blank out the module and re-config like everyone else who has had it fixed is being told.

This would be excellent! Keep us posted!

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

My lights are fixed. There are not written instructions, so I'll try my best to describe what the service writer showed/described to me.

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,

Now, if someone would just come up with something like VAG-COM for the Chrysler products those of us who love to tinker could have a field day......

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

Glad to be of assistance. The more I tinker with the jeep, the more I'll post on here. I'm a very hands on, person. My parents used to say I have F#(#-with-it-itis...since I never LEFT anything alone, ever.

Re: LED in the door **UPDATE**

I finally have fully functional LED's!!

heywaitfourme's diagram and directions are spot on - big thanks again to you and everyone else involved in finding the solution.

I should go crazyglue the instructions to the original service mangers office window as a friendly reminder of what a stubborn ass he is.
