SRT Adaptive Headlights work on 2014 limited

Just wanted to share my experience with my headlight swap on my 2014 limited with the group here

I wanted to go with the "blacked out " look so I decided to swap out my factory HIDs for the black SRT (2014) ones...I bought a set here on the forum and as it turned out...one didn't work...so I've spent the last 4 weeks driving with one SRT headlight and one factory HID(without Adaptive)

Before I did this swap I asked a few people if the adaptive part would work when I installed the new SRT lights and was told "NO"

well...let me tell you that this is WRONG-

The adaptive WORKS - When I was running just one SRT headlight the adaptive didn't work...but today I finally got another SRT headlight so now I am running a matching set of adaptive SRT headlights and the adaptive actually WORKS!!!

Didn't do anything but plug the new SRT lights in to my factory HID setup...so if anyone is thinking of going to the SRT headlights for just the "black out" look you'll also get the adaptive feature...as long as you have the factory HIDS!


I just wanted to share this because it actually is a SUPER cool feature when you have it...

Re: SRT Adaptive Headlights work on 2014 limited

Excellent!
That's good to know, I'm assuming the blacked out High Altitude OEM headlights will not have this feature.... but the SRT blacked out OEM headlights do??

Can you post part numbers please. Thanks

Re: SRT Adaptive Headlights work on 2014 limited

I'm not sure if the ha's have the adaptive lights or not but here's the srt lights I have

http://www.justforjeeps.com/20srhe.html

Part numbers

68142491AE

68142490AD

They sell for $1000 each new but I was able to find a couple sets here on the forums ..I paid 1300$ for the first set which consisted of one new one and one used one..only to find the used one didn't work..so I found another used one off eBay for 300$

So right now I have one new one and one used one but I was able to find 2 new ones here for 1000$

I'll be receiving them tomorrow so I'll probably put those on next week..I'm planning on sending one set to be customized with some LEDs and to have the side markers blacked out as well

Re: SRT Adaptive Headlights work on 2014 limited

Not that it's something that you need to turn on and off regularly, but obviously you won't be able to turn adaptive feature on and off in your uconnect settings right? I mean I can't imagine just because you hooked up the adaptive headlights now all of a sudden it comes up in the menus right?
What I'm saying is adaptive headlight equipped Jeeps have the option to turn that feature on/off in the uconnect settings.

That's awesome that they work for you. Must have been a real treat to see that when it totally wasn't expected.

Re: SRT Adaptive Headlights work on 2014 limited

Glad to hear it worked for you.


I'm also happy to see more forum speculation debunked. Too many people spread rumors on here as gospel when they don't have any data to back up their claims. I'll assume it was guys swapping from Halogens to HID's saying the adaptive didn't work, but not many people just swapping limited HID's for SRT/Summit lights.

I never checked out the menu...i'll check that out today and see if there is anything there ...

YEAH...totally cool to see this feature work when I wasn't expecting it at all...these adaptive lights move ALOT so it's super noticeable compared to the stock non AFS lights...

weird thing is that it didn't work when I had one SRT light and one stock non AFS light hooked up...but as soon as I got both SRT lights connected it works...at first I thought something was wrong because I was taking a left turn and the drivers side headlight moved like 45 Degrees...

I'm thinking how I'd like to add adaptive cruise to my jeep now and am wondering if all the hard wiring is there and just need the front cam...I guess i'll just have to try and see...like this headlight swap

Now that I wouldn't get my hopes up on. Man, that would be a complicated install as I'm sure there is a LOT that goes into that system. I could obviously be wrong, but off the top of my head you would think there are different computers and/or software and wire harnesses involved, then I'm sure the vehicle would somehow have to be reflashed and programmed for that feature. Obviously the steering wheel buttons, the radar sensor in front alone costs like $1300.
Again, I don't want to be one of those people that starts the rumors saying it cant be done, but adding adaptive cruise doesn't sound like a simple thing. It would be much easier to just buy an entirely new Jeep that has it factory installed....and maybe cheaper lol

You're prob right about all of it ,,,,I was just wondering if the adaptive piggybacks on the existing cruise control ?

I have never looked at the adaptive cruise buttons but are they different than the non adaptive?

just like these headlights...wondering if all the circuitry is there just not enabled or plugged in?

So your headlights turn side to side now? You sure you aren't confusing auto leveling (up and down) with full adaptive? Just want to be clear on what functionality is working on your jeep? For others looking into this since no one else that has done the swap in the past has reported additional functionality!

Yes...they turn side to side(left/right) as well as the auto leveling up/down

I will try to do a video so you can see...but they turn left/right A LOT when you turn the steering wheel...

Yeah if you notice on your steering wheel under the right side cruise buttons there will be a set of 3 dummy slots which are where the adaptive cruise buttons are on equipped vehicles.

And based on your description of the adaptive lights sounds like they are doing what they are supposed to be doing. For those that don't have them on the Grand Cherokee here is what they do.
When you turn left the drivers side headlight only will aim left into the turn. The passenger side stays stationary. When you turn right obviously the opposite, the passenger side headlight aims into the turn to the right and the drivers side does not move. And as ajag said they move pretty far into the turn. Whn you start the vehicle the start sequence however is no different between AFS equipped vehicles and non-AFS vehicles. They only cycle down then back up....not up/down and side to side like many other AFS equipped vehicles.
