'Parking brake on when in park' UConnect setting

I could have sworn i saw this feature on my UConnect, but i may have read the owners manual so many times that now i think i have/had it.

Anybody have this feature on a '14 limited with 8.4an. And for those that have it, how effective is it? (As appose to what i have to do now, neutral-set parking brake- release foot brake...but then put foot brake back on to be able to shift into park)

Al

Re: 'Parking brake on when in park' UConnect setting

Al,

If you mean that the parking brake automatically sets when you shift into park, I don't think that is a Jeep option. I seem to remember a discussion here several months ago talking about some other vehicles offering it.

In case I'm wrong ....

Yeah i know, but i didn't know if higher trim levels had a fancier U connect /magic wizard option that had it. Maybe the owners manual is forecasting an E Brake for the future.

Re: 'Parking brake on when in park' UConnect setting

Mine has the 8.4AN and does not have a parking brake option listed. Can't imagine how they would engage/disengage the parking brake, as it is mechanical, not electric.

From page 330 UNDERSTANDING YOUR INSTRUMENT PANEL "Auto Park Brake (automatic vehicles)--When this feature is selected, the vehicle will automatically set the Park Brake when the vehicle is shifted to park. To make your selection, touch the Auto Park Brake soft-key, until a check-mark appears next to setting, indicating that the setting had been selected. Touch the back arrow soft-key to return to the previous menu."
