Quadra lift "park" height and EVIC

I've read the user guides and searched the forums I suspect the answer is no but I figured I'd ask.

Is there a option EVIC or not where you can set the vehicle to automatically go into the park lowered height when you put the transmission in park?

Re: Quadra lift "park" height and EVIC

There is the Easy Exit option but I believe that only moves the steering wheel up and seat back.

I don't have it turned on in mind so I'm not sure how the QL moves.

Park height is only available by using the 'Lower' button. It will start when you are going below about 15 mph, so you can hit the button as you approach destination and it may be done by the time you stop.

Thanks, I had read that in one of the manuals. It's seem a bit "odd" that the designers would not give you a option to set it automatically, seeing park height is for when you want to park it. Maybe hopefully the crawl some of the forums looking for user feedback.

Re: Quadra lift "park" height and EVIC

If you put gear in Park and should wait for it to be aut. lowered, by time its lowered you could be out of the car and in your home.
Also when off roading, you select P, it lowers and you hit the rocks.
If its automatically lowered when driving under 15mph, you will hit speed bumps.
I believe Jeep has thought it trough.

I'll give ya the autoamtically lowered when driving under 15mph that could be a pain and over excercise the quadralift system. But I do think they missed it as a option for park mode you should be able to set it as a option. Like power folding mirrors, (ya we don't have them, bummer) if you have them there should always be a setting to automatically fold them in when parking, my Enclave doesn't do this, but it's got power folding mirrors and I always have to hit the button.

From Page 62 of the user manual. You need to remember to hit the button.


"• Park Mode (Lowers the vehicle approximately 1.5 in (38 mm) – This position lowers the vehicle for easier passenger entry and exit. Press the
“Down” button once from NRH while the vehicle speed is below 25 mph (40 km/h). Once the vehicle speed goes below 15 mph (24 km/h) the vehicle height will begin to lower. The Indicator lamp on the “Down” button will be illuminated when the vehicle is in Park Mode."
