WOW, learned something new, VENT BUTTON!

So I've had my Jeep for almost a year now and today I just now discovered the Jeep panoramic sun roof has a VENT button!!! I mean, I always knew it was there, but never realized it was actually a button, I just thought it was a description/image of what the AUTO buttons were for. (like the sun shade buttons on the right are, the middle part is not a button but just an image indicating it is for the shades).

Anyways I discovered this on accident today when I went to open my garage door and accidently hit the vent button instead, and much to my surprise it vented the window up!!

Am I the only one who didn't know this!!?!?! lol

Anyways, it's always nice to discover cool new things about the Jeep

Vent is the best! When you want some fresh air but don't want to open up the windows it comes in handy.

Yeah I agree, before, I would always open the window a few inches to get some air flow, but at higher speeds the window net that pops up would always flap around, plus created lots of road noise.

This vent feature will be nice for times like that!!!! (still can't believe I didn't discover this sooner lol)

Just think what else you might find out about your Jeep if you sat down and read through your owner's manual!

Re: WOW, learned something new, VENT BUTTON!

To answer your question.... yes, I think you're the only one that didn't know this

Is this your first vehicle with a sunroof? All the power sunroofs I've ever used or seen have this feature.

I'm a guy, we don't read those things. Just kidding, I actually did read through it, but didn't really think there was much to learn about the sunroof as it was self explanatory, so skipped past that part. Guess I was wrong!

Actually my last two vehicles both had sunroofs (Isuzu Axiom and Pontiac G8 GT) but neither had a panaromic sunroof, just had a standard sun roof.

So I guess I didn't realize the panaromic opened up in the middle, because it was dual glass, I just thought it slide back and forth only.

Re: WOW, learned something new, VENT BUTTON!

There was a rather long thread shortly after the '14 was introduced where 'discoveries' were posted. Many were clearly documented in the owner's manual, but there were a few surprises.

I never read the section on the sun roof, because I don't really like them. The vent feature might come in handy when the Jeep is parked in hot weather.

A lot of cars/suvs/trucks have those.. For years now.

The 'vent' option on the moon roof has been around since at least 1993. My Audi 90S had it.

I use it in the winter here in MN a lot when driving in a snow storm. Crank up the heat on windshield defrost and pop the moon roof to vent out the massive heat. Windshield stays warm and you don't roast.

Next question...
How many of you know that the rear seat lights (inside the grab handles) can be pushed in to turn them on independent of them lighting up as 'dome' lights when the doors are open? Push in to turn on, push in again to turn off.

The vent really helps get some of the hot air out when you turn on the a/c

I had no idea. Great tip!!

Now if only the entire panoramic sunroof could open, not just the front part.
