MY2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit issue with Blind Spot

Hey Guys-

I am perplexed and disappointed. Approx 2 weeks ago with only 2700miles I have been having issues with the Blind Spot Detection on my MY14 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit.

It started with going off with the error message "Blind Spot Alert Unavailable" every other day to daily to hourly and now all the time. I brought to dealership after two visits with new mirrors and module, it still not working. It remains on all the time.

I have found one post on here about an astronomy zone however the dealership has NO idea what that is. They are sending a call to Chrysler to report the problem.

Yes, I have washed the truck many times which is pretty normal keeping my ride clean and garage kept.

Irritated.

If your problem is the same as the one I had, one of the side mirror BSD triangles should light up and remain lit when the system faults.

The fix for mine was the replacement of a module in the driver's door.

Yes, that is what they did today and it didn't fix the problem. I have new mirrors and new module.

tsk tsk

Where are the actual sensors, anyway? Where do they emit from? Been wondering that.

There is 1 on each side under the rear bumper fascia. I've noticed that sometimes a vehicle will be coming up fast in the lane on my left and they will brake quite suddenly, then after a minute or so, they then accelerate past. I've read where some radar detectors will give a warning and that would explain why I've noticed this occurring.

I am having the exact same problem. I haven't bothered going to the dealer yet because I never use the feature but glad to know what the fix is so I can arrange for the part from my guys at Chrysler HQ before brining it in.

Replacing the mirrors or the module did not correct my problem. They have sent an inquiry to Chrysler. Hopefully I will have a resolution soon.

Quick question for all those with this issue...

When the BSD system faults, do your front power windows also stop working?

Update


My service dept has not update or response from Chrysler and their START system. They sent another email. They feel my issue is unusual since replacing the module didn't work. Disappointed.

Re: MY2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit issue with Blind Spot

I have a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland, My blind spot monitoring system is not working either, had it in for service while I was out of Town because the MIL light was on also, was told the part was on back order. Brought it to my Dealership when I returned home. I was told the same thing. Part was on back order. Contacted Chrysler Customer Service and they had the parts within a week to "fix" both issues. Just had the car in for service today, The issue causing the MIL SEEMS to be fixed, however, the blind spot monitoring system message came on again on my way home. I contacted service but they said I will "have to set up another appointment. Has anyone had this issue and has it been resolved yet? This is one of the features that I purchased the Overland model for. I am upset that I am paying for a feature I can not rely on.
