Supposedly there was a loose ground somewhere... so far so good so I guess that was the problem causing the electrical freakouts

Good to know. That's not the first time I've read of bad grounding on these WK2s in other threads on this forum. Thanks for the update!

I'd like to know how hard can it be during vehicle assembly to tighten a ground properly to the chassis? Ridiculous

Re: '14 SRT Problems... Extremely frustrated...

You hit it on the head Bob! Took delivery on 14 JGC Summit on May 3rd. I was setting up with a new hitch receiver when I noticed no power to the hitch. First thing I checked was the connection and it had not been plugged in. just hanging there. Plugged it in and everything was fine. Also finding trim that was just never seated. Having to go over everything. GROUND connection has now jumped to top of list!!

Not hard, but as Marlon pointed out, these cars are often in a each station for less than a minute. I'd guess they have to tweak those times a little to make sure that the average worker can get to everything required before it moves on. And, do it for 10 hours a day.
