So then I grab the shifter, miss reverse and wind up in neutral, then push if forward into reverse. After backing into the street I try to shift into "D", but the shifter usually stops in neutral. A second attempt gets me into "D" and I'm in great shape all the way to my first destination.

After I do my shopping I still struggle to get the flipper glass to open, so I throw everything in the back seat.

The best thing about driving the Jeep, now that I turned off HD;



There Ain't Nothin' Wrong With My Radio!




Love it!

I would believe all of that except... your first destination is the beach, so if you had have said you struggled with the flipper glass to get your rods in, I would have bought right in

My tailgate came from the factory with what seems to be perfect alignment.
I've been experiencing the same problem with my Limited since June. So far, the dealer has replaced what they call the Liftgate Module and the Main Control Module. Today marks the 5th time the dealer has worked on it and they are telling me that I will get it back tomorrow with a solution.

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

my Summit has almost always taken 2x2 clicks.....dealer has no idea how to fix...one way to get 4 clicks down to at least 3 is unlock door with one then lift gate opens with 2 but it upsets me that a $52000 car doesn't work as it should.

I have a 2014 Overland that behaves the same way after sitting for a while. I suspect the 2x2 click after the jeep sits is caused because the fob has to "wake" up the jeep from sleep mode. That is why the second set of clicks works.

After the jeep has been running or acknowledges the fob it works flawlessly on 2 clicks.

I suspect that your analysis is spot on! Problem is, dealers don't know how to fix it and I believe that Jeep chooses not to fix it due to high cost. As I said, my dealer promised me a solution by today. We'll see what happens but I'm not holding my breath since they told me they can't fix my satellite radio either BTW, there is a Limited sitting in my dealer's showroom with a power liftgate that works flawlessly.

Yep I bet it is not an easy fix since it is in the softwear or antennae or both. Good luck!

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

Just got it back. Still no joy! Dealer says that Jeep is sending a Tech Guru from Boston and that Jeep is committed to fixing it.
