Jacking a QL Jeep

I know the manual says to lock the QL before jacking. I've done it both ways and can't see the difference. Obviously I wouldn't have the engine running so how could the the QL settle? My question is, what do people find best, locking or not locking and which QL setting is best.

Also, I do my own wheel rotations and have just about killed the tinny jack provided. What jacks have people found work best?

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

Bob, it's not necessarily settling... it's locking the QL in whatever position it happens to be in. The objective is to NOT have it try to level itself while you have it up on a jack. And it will attempt to do so even with the engine off.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

It's really not "settling". It is "leveling" and this apparently can happen after the vehicle is parked and engine is off.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

Holding the up and down buttons down at the same time until both lights come on and Also you will get a evic message saying air ride disabled.

Driving over 5mph will return back to normal.

Correct! Mine usually levels 10 to 15 minutes after pulling into my garage. This happened one day last week. A couple of hours later I unloaded five, 64 quart bags of garden soil. A short time later it leveled itself again.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

How do you guys lock the QL? Someone is suggesting pressing the UP and DOWN buttons at the same time. What about the feature in UCONNECT?

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

Take the levelling thing seriously. I watched my QL go from offroad2 to normal height by itself 2-3minutes after shutting it off. We had a big discusdion on this or the other forum to gigure out what could have caused it. Never found a good answer. Disabling QL for jacking is a good idea.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

QL is set up to level the vehicle after it's parked and shut off... for "appearance purposes" according to Jeep.

LOL...

"After the engine is turned off, it may be noticed that the air suspension system operates briefly, this is normal. The system is correcting the position of the vehicle to ensure a proper appearance."

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

Open any door and the air pump will stop(motor on or off)until the door is closed.

Re: Jacking a QL Jeep

I go into the settings and check jack mode. I beleive this disables the leveleing. After you put the car into gear, this automatically disables (unchecks itself).
