God bless your dealership for letting you do that. I stopped by a showroom in New York this past week and they basically said "no way" when I asked if I could try out the '14 SRT. I asked how they ever expected to sell it, and the super-arrogant sales manager's reply was, "we'll be able to spot that buyer when he walks through the door."

Was he wrong?

Does anyone else with the 4-click problem, also have a problem with the passive entry on the liftgate's handle? I noticed that when my truck is in 4-click mode the passive entry doesn't work. Makes me think its really a problem of the jeep just not waking up fast enough, or maybe sleeping too quickly after I get out of the car.

There is a thread on here somewhere about that. Yes, lots of us are having that same issue.

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

I occasionally need to click four times. I have never had a problem with the handle.

After leaving the tailgate open all day (which I do often)I do have to close it manually. When I first got the Jeep I could hit the button or the remote. Oddly enough, the way it works now is exactly the way the manual says it should be.

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

Is there a way to manually open the liftgate? Seems I'm fighting the motor if I do try, either opening or closing. Hate waiting on it sometimes!

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

Same issue with my 14 Limited. Rarely opens on first two clicks except at the Dealer Garage. Frustrating!

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

Same here, 4 clicks to open the lift gate. Or unlock doors first, then only 2.

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

Yup, that works. Same for closing with remote. Maybe other posters are right with FOB going to sleep? Still frustrating!

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

Sometimes, if I am far away and can't hear the beeps, I think it didn't open on the first 2 clicks so I click it two more times and so it starts to open and then immediately closes. Ugh!

Re: Remote Liftgate Opening

I've had that happen as well, but most the time now I'm having to do the 4 clicks to get the gate to open.
