If you've had 3 regen failures then your DPF is cactus, it happens, they will replace it and generally that is that. From the few reports of owners who have had their dpf replaced there is no more problem.

The car asking you to keep driving at highway speeds isn't a common thing, and in most cases you can stop, unload your groceries, then when you are ready take it for a nice long drive to allow the regen to go. But normally the regen *should* occur well before getting to an almost clogged state where this message appears. If you take it for a long drive once a fortnight or so, then the regen should be doing its thing then.

There were problems where this wasn't happening, even at highway speeds, but it seems this software update has fixed that.
Thanks for your reply. Well they have finally decided to replace the DPF. I'm looking forward to getting my Jeep back at the end of the week so that I can finally start enjoying it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Well my parking sensors are chucking a fit tonight, continually chiming and showing something up against the front driver side of the car. I wiped down the sensors, but still showing a red indicator and chiming. I stopped and let it sit for a while and started the car again and its stopped complaining now, hopefully it was a one off.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Got skid plates fitted today at the dealer after the last 4wd trip i managed to scrape the fuel tank.
Unfortunately there was an error with the order and had the skid palte kit for the petrol and not the diesel so will have to go back to get the sump plate done as it is different.

I nearly got overcharged for the whole thing as i think they messed up the labor amount. For the kit less the sump plate it was $100 more than originally quoted, upon further investigation it was sorted out which was good.

Also got fitted to my two spare 2014 Laredo 18in wheels two new Yokohama Geolanders g012s so ready to go 4wding weekend after next.

Can vouch for the skid plates. Gave them a fair old workout the other weekend!! The bash plate worked a treat as well. So far so good Will be taking her off road again in the near future. Looking to fit a UHF radio, will have to investigate routing the aerial cable in from the engine bay. Next project!

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Been thinking about skid plates, and have the Chief sump plate so far. How much would the rest cost from the stealership? Practical to self-install?


Cheers, Simon

Simon, whole thing was just over 1k installed at the stealership.
It is easy to instal yourself as it is simply bolting them onto the car.
