Launch Control Problem on '14 JGC SRT

Hi, I have been in the market for a '14 SRT recently and finally got time to go test drive one locally today at a dealer.

The vehicle I looked at had a little over 12K miles, 1-owner, and was in good/normal shape. I thoroughly looked over the vehicle and it is pretty solid. It was my second time driving a '14 and I am still caught off guard how well it performs. Simply put I want one. Lol

Let me just cut to the chase though - Upon further inspection I wanted to make sure that the launch control was functioning as this is a fun feature I've been anxious for.

I tried pressing the launch control button in Auto / Sport / Track and it responded the following way -

*Launch button LED blinked once and went out.
*Info screen under the speedometer on the cluster screen went black for a couple seconds and then reverted to the past screen it was on.
*No warning/alert chimes were heard in the vehicle

I tried restarting vehicle a couple times, same outcome.

I'm not sure if there is something I'm missing here and the salesperson I worked with was uninformed about the SRT features since this was being sold at a different make dealership.

I know the vehicle is still under warranty, but I would like to get some possible insight to this before I get more time to make a formal offer on this vehicle.

Re: Launch Control Problem on '14 JGC SRT

Going to ask a silly question but was the car completely stopped ? Did you try and put your foot on the brake before pushing the button

Lol, yeah the vehicle was at a standstill, steering wheel straightened. In addition to that my foot was on the brake.
