I do not have it either, but there is a module towards the front half of the box. Does anyone know what that module is for? The back half of the bad is empty?

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

In another thread but will add here. There is a lock button in the lift gate handle (right hand side) on the 2014's.

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

Maybe that's what it's for or maybe not but it sure does come in handy sometimes.

The module in the front is the 4x4 module (Quadra Trac). The one in back, if you have it is Quadra lift.

Thank you. I had no clue.

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

I notice today that you can adjust the NAV volume without going into the menus. All you have to do is wait for the NAV voice guidance and turn the volume up or down with the volume buttons/knob. The volume button reverts back to "radio" function after the voice guidance is complete.

Re: Things you might not know about the WK2.........

Just found out today that if you are on a Bluetooth phone call it will not auto disconnect when you turn the engine off/ open the door. The BT will continue working until you use your phone to switch to handset (or the power off time delay elapses, I assume). It was kind of nice to be reminded before it switched to my handset while it was still in my pocket.

The only thing is that it reverts back to default voice volume when you switch ignition off and then back on.. It's just a bit loud for me..

Mine always went to default after setting in EVIC. Since I set it with the knob, months ago, it has stayed put.

Sun Visors: When you unclip them (to swing towards the window) they also slide out to get into position where you need them so that light isn't coming between the door and visor. - Luckrider

Rear Window Switches: With the lights on, they get lit up. If you lock the rear windows so that the rear passengers can't operate them, the light goes out.

Center Console: There is a little cubby in the lid. It looks like it would be a great place to hide papers or something like a small map (or maybe some hidden emergency cash). The actual purpose is to house a small package of tissues - Luckrider (Thanks to Justal13 for the exact use).

Front Windows: You can roll them down with the remote. Just unlock the Jeep, let go of the button, and them immediately push the button and hold. It takes about 2 seconds before they start going down, and then they go until you release the button (not everyone knows this). - Luckrider

Rear Glass Latch: Just because you don't have the fancy auto glass and hatch doesn't mean you can't unlock just the hatch. If you take the remote apart and click (2x) the lower left button with the black part that is normally used to contact one of the other buttons, the latch will pop and you can open it without unlocking the Jeep. That would be useful when dropping stuff off... now if only you could find the rubber skin to make it work without taking the remote apart (I am sure you can actually do that). Found that out while waiting in the Jeep bored playing with everything I could.-Luckrider

Super Sexy Electric Speedo: If you have the 430N (might work with the other nav radio), if you touch the box that displays your speed (when on map) it will bring up another screen that shows an odometer, speedometer on the left, average moving speed, average speed (includes stopped), and fastest speed driven. - Luckrider

Massive Hidden Cargo Bin: There is a huge cargo compartment under the driver's seat. Same size as the battery compartment under the passenger side, and the lid even has instruction for changing the battery (which isn't in that compartment). - Luckrider

Spare Cover Flap Hook: There is a sweet hook in the lid for the spare tire that can be used to hold it up when you need to get stuff in the cargo area there, or for getting the spare out. You guys know there are 2 cargo bins there right? - Luckrider

Rewind the Radio: On the 430N while listening to the radio... Hit The rewind button ie '<<'. You have to hit the button marked replay before this will work though. - Celly

Headrest Adjustments: That headrest does more than just go up and down, you know. It has the ability to tilt forward and back too. - plynn7

Got the info from Jeepforum.com

Possibley a silly question, but how do you get to the storage bin under the drivers seat? Is it difficult to get off? Also, I have a 2013 Egroup base so no QL for me.
