Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

WK2 comes with one-touch turn signal that blinks 3 times and I was wondering whether it can be reset to blink 5 times.

Re: Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

anything is possible, but, as above, not easily.

Re: Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

Hit it again after the first three and Chrysler will give you one extra blink for free, for a total of 6.

Re: Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

With the StarScan a dealer can set it to "Elderly Mode" where it will blink 150 times with one touch.

Re: Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

We have a GTI and 328, both with the 3 blink feature. Both can be set to 5 blinks if you want. I think the GTI has to have the dealer do it though. I thought 5 blinks would be better but honestly I realized I was just taking too long to change lanes. Look first then hit your signal and it should be plenty of time. Otherwise the dealer might be able to do it for you.

Re: Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

Ok, it turns on the lights, dims the lights, turns on high beams, turns on drl, turns on heated seats and defrost when cold out, turns on wipers, adjust mirrors and seats automatically, adjust 4 wheel drive, and checks the tire pressures all automatically while i talk on my bluetooth phone while rubbing one out while driving. I can manage the turn signal with the other hand.

If this thing had a beer fridge and a grow room i would be set! Damn jeep for not thinging of everything!!! I should report jeep to rip off report, i feel taken advantage of.

Re: Can I change turn signal blinking pattern?

In theory you should be able to increase the number of blinks. I did this mod to my Touareg increased it from 3 to five blinks.

It is more than likely possible to do, the question is does the service manager or the tech at your dealership aware of the possibility.
