I also get the delayed locking sporadically where I stand there and have to press the button multiple times before it locks, I was going to mention it to dealer when I got my shifter update but if its something that a uconnect update made happen then I'll just leave it alone

Yep, exactly my issue after uConnect update. Looks like it's normal then. I hate it

I tried again, leaving enough time between closing the driver door and pressing the small lock button, doors didn't close, only on 2nd press.
Back to the dealer. I know there is an issue, I'm not stupid :-)
I hate the feeling when the dealership is trying to talk you into a situation where you almost feel guilty about an issue, this Jeep has/had many issues...
I locked many doors but know when pressing a button twice something is probably wrong...

So since it takes me two presses of the lock button on the door handle, something is wrong with mine too??

Re: Poblem with Keyless Enter-N-Go. Need to press door handle lock button twice to lo

I've noticed that when I simply touch the chrome door handle with a finger (not the small lock button) it also unlocks the doors (turn signal lights flash) right after I close the door (and only in that scenario). Weird!
It shouldn't do anything, after all I'm not touching the capacitive strip on the rear of the door handle...

I've noticed mine does the exact same thing. This is sounding all too common and has to be a design flaw.

Re: Poblem with Keyless Enter-N-Go. Need to press door handle lock button twice to lo

For whatever it's worth, I've had the shifter recall done and am NOT running the Siri Update. I rolled back to the version prior to the Siri Update after having used the new firmware for 3-4 weeks until it gave me problems.

I just tested this and can unlock the door and lock it within the time it takes to move my hand from behind the handle to the button on the door handle. This would appear to effectively eliminate the shifter recall from the equation on its own. That's not to say the recall and shifter update aren't the combined culprits.

Maybe it's you're electric personality....



For what it's worth, I had the shifter recall done and my locks act as they always have - which is to say, correctly.

Ok so I have not had an issue with this in a while now. I chalk it up to user error. I didn't know about the capacitive sensor on the inside of door handle. Now I dont press the button entering and only hit the button when leaving. All is working fine. Just don't grab the handle and hit the button at the same time.

Re: Poblem with Keyless Enter-N-Go. Need to press door handle lock button twice to lo

It's for sure not user error for me.

I use only my thumb, nothing else, no press the lock button on the door handle.

The lights will blink but nothing happens. Do it again and the light blink and the doors look like it's suppose to.

It doesn't always do this, sometimes it works the first time I press the button. I never had this issue before the recall.

Try pressing it with your index finger...
