Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Blackhawk

Off topic a bit have noticed my power steering fluid was down to low after only 4,000 Klm.
So went and seen jeep and the lines into the pump for the brakes and power steering were loose and seeping. He said he had not seen that before so maybe make sure yours are tight.
Brakes were also low just some thing that got missed when leaving the factory I suspect

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Blackhawk

Hey same...I thought Jeep were just being tight on the fluids...Will check more tomorrow, cheers Madmick.
Other than that it's running great, just over 2000km and purrs along like a lion nicely. I even switch off the stereo when driving to listen to the engine, haha. Proper sad but this is the best vehicle I've ever owned. Such a pleasure to drive!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Blackhawk

Hi,
Own a white Blackhawk diesel. Bought it new about 2 months ago. Can not stop smiling. Have to say the various threads regarding all aspects of the GC definitely helped my decision to buy. First question though, can anyone direct me to threads regarding the poor radio reception and possible fixes. No matter where in Sydney metro, the static and "scratchiness" of the sound (all stations) is terrible. Happens all the time but when it doesn't the sound quality is pretty good. Dealer can't or won't elaborate beyond "cleaning the aerial contacts". Has made zero difference
BTW, Blackhawks are one the most awesome looking vehicles around.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Blackhawk

I think there is a thread re radio reception. There is no fix, it's shit.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Blackhawk

To install an external antenna is probably the only way you'll improve it, though I think I recall hearing that there was a TSB for AM radio reception. No?

Thanks. The dealer said (about a 3 weeks back) that there was no TSB for this. Do the higher grade models have the same issue? I assume if the reception is universally crap, then upgrading the speakers etc will be pointless.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Blackhawk

I'm not going to comment on the rayjo... no shit I've never used it. They're all the same unit though.

I will say that concealed antennas and cheap RF stages in head units are not a good combination. Get a better signal to the electronics and you might have half a chance.

Cheers,
Steve
