Either way, I dont care. Jeep drives like brake new now.
That is great. There also was an issue with counterfeit mats, but they looked a lot like toasters so no one got stuck with one.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

In spite of the warnings issued here, with great trepidation I removed my mat last Saturday, laid it carefully on the driveway and washed it gently with a dilute mixture of simple green, rinsed, shook the water off and carefully laid it on a dry spot in the sun to recharge and thoroughly dry. As this process was occurring I vacuumed its mounting surface, carefully removing all traces of various debris from my work, play and travels.

Reinstalled. Success!

Glad it worked out for you as washing instructions were not in the box. I learn something new everytime I am on this site. Thanks.

I've still got my box. You can have it for free but you need to pay the postage and packing from Australia. Let me know because my wife is on my case to throw it out. I moved it from the bedroom to the garage but she found it and is NOT HAPPY!!!

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

Help! The "Check Mat " light came on and the GC went into "limp home" mode, with a max speed of 25 mph. I removed the mat and used the evic to try and reset the mat mode but it didn't help. Since I self installed the mat the dealership said that wouldn't cover the fix as a warranty repair. It worked fine for several months before this problem occurred. Any ideas?

Have you checked your mat fluid level yet? Mopar has a very specific fuild change interval which requires a SZT additive for proper performance. After the fluid change, you may reset the EVIC as follows:

After topping off the mat fluid resivour with Mopar approved friction fluid......
1. Open the rear liftgate.
2. Open the driver's rear door.
3. Switch the ignition to RUN (no start)
4. Open the hood for 5 seconds, then close within 10 seconds.
5. Close the rear liftgate.
6. Close the driver's rear door.
7. Switch the ignition to OFF.
8. The end.

That did the trick. I did add mat fluid but I didn't have the reset sequence.
Thanks a lot.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

I forgot to mention assuming this is your first time changing the mat fluid.... The mat *may* run a lil hot and you *may* experiencing some ticking for the first few hundred miles. After that, you should be fine. Mine only did this through the first few changes. Has been whisper quite and normal temps from then on out.

I notices a slight burning odor coming from the mat originally but I assumed it was normal. It has since gone away. I had been thinking about adding front slush mats but given the issues I've had with the cargo mat I think I'll hold off.

Re: Installation: Mopar cargo mat

If you want front slush mats, you must also install the rear slush mats as the rear mats activate the front mats.

Thanks, I would have spent hours trying to get just the front mats working.
