Keep working on this - and BTW pre-2014 also have the forward facing camera for the ACC system. It's used for redundancy.

Re: CROWD PROJECT: Retrofitting "STOP" on the 2014 JGCs with ACC

I am still working on it.
I got a message recently on this subject matter from Chrysler, working the dealership angle.

ANSWER
Quote:
Chrysler would not advocate modifying a vehicle with options that were not available at time of purchase, especially whensafety would be involved. We would not be able to track the vehicle for recall purposes.
QUESTION
Quote:
I have a technical question. I have a customer that purchased a Jeep Grand Cherokee (EC160968) that is equipped with adaptive cruise (NH1) and he wants to change it to adaptive cruise with stop (NH3). He gave me the vin number to a Jeep Grand Cherokee (EC183329) that is equipped. It seems there was a mid-year change in the Grand Cherokee. Hardware wise I see the ABS modules are different. My question is if you can tell me what hardware is different and is there software we can install to make the customer’s Jeep have the adaptive cruise with stop feature?
I understand their answer, and I respect it. But it will not deter me and also serves to confirm my suspicions: it is possible. I will attempt this swap sometime in 2014 after, allowing Chrysler more time to clarify and solve any possible recalls for this system. The worst that can happen is I pay twice labor and once for this particular newer ABS controller - in case I have to go back to the non-STOP original configuration.

Do you really think that changing to the updated ABS controller is all that is needed? and that the rest of the systems will just sink up with the updated controller? If so that would not be that bad. You could do that on your own install it bleed the system, it cant be that easy though can it?

Re: CROWD PROJECT: Retrofitting "STOP" on the 2014 JGCs with ACC

It will also need reprogramming. That is where schmoozing is involved - because I believe that the individual systems can be flashed and made functional.

But like the official statement was...Chrysler would not know that my car has NH3 if there was some update down the road, to send me a recall letter. Or maybe there is a way to update their knowledge database but the first attempt is to discourage people. Put it this way - they don't want to pay for it or assume liability. And I am cool with that. As far as tracking is concerned, if I purchased a non-navi enabled RA3 and I later decide to activate Navi, they have a way of tracking that right?

I will work on this in spring/summer.

I also want tor retrofit SUMMIT trim front Parksense sensors, though I will likely start with a camera and the Lockpick. For now, I only have funds for the ACC and Lockpick projects.

Changing out the controller is easy/affordable enough but reflashing associated modules with firmware that was not intended for that vehicle that is the show stopper. My dealer and I am sure most would never touch that. If you have an in with your dealer I could see why it would work for you. Good luck let us know how it goes.

Re: CROWD PROJECT: Retrofitting "STOP" on the 2014 JGCs with ACC

I drove to northern California from southern California last week and used it for much of the trip both ways. It is what all of us have probably always wanted from cruise control. You set a following distance, then a maximum speed. Being able to move your legs is very helpful on long trips.
