Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Stall speed is simply how many RPM are required to engage the engine's drive to the gearbox. Lower is better when traction is reduced. Higher allows modern diesels get to their stronger output range.

You turned off hill hold, didn't you?

Night,
Steve

Sure did, it was revving like nuts before moving and lurching horribly when it started to move.
Lost too much control with it on.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

the average fuel consumption is not 'whole of life'. it probably averages out the last x kms. this used to happen with my 300 SRT8 as well - a long highway drive would drop the average fuel consumption significantly even when i was at 10000km on the clock never having reset the meter

I reset ODO B, while ODO A has never been reset, so contains full history.
ODO B told me I drove 92.6kms today, averaged 8.9lts.

ODO A average changed from 7,9lt to 8.6lt.

Considering I added 3.6% in kms, i am surprised I managed to have an 8.9% increase in the overall average usage when I was only 12.7% over the average.
If I am doing my math correctly, i should have had a .457% effect.

%%

just thought i would throw a couple more percentage symbols in there for fun.
I'm not sure how the vehicle actually calculates the economy………in our 2012 I notice a similar issue with A and B ODO figures. Particularly when towing our van, I use the transmission and coolant temps, and the consumption figure to check regularly on how hard the vehicle is working, so I notice when the figures are updated.
Last trip was over 5000K and I noticed that the economy figure would still change fairly frequently, up and down, reflecting the terrain the combination was in.
I've come to think the vehicle only shows the recent history, maybe last 10 minutes or less, not a figure amortised over whatever the trip ODO shows.

Last year we travelled extensively (22,000K), in the US and Canada in a rented 2013 Ford Taurus Limited. It had all the electronics anyone could wish for, and this vehicle only showed recent fuel consumption - - not the average consumption over the whole travel period - despite trying, I couldn't get it to do that.

Does anyone have a definitive answer re the JGC consumption calculation?

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I think the only way you can really be sure is to manually calculate yourself.
Reset one of the ODO at refuel (I usually chose A), then when you fill up again, see how many litres it takes, and see how many kms you drove with that amount of fuel.
This of course makes the assumption that a full fill up is the same volume each time.

And first check your odometer... they're not always right on the money, even out of the box.

My Prado taught me to never calculate fuel consumption

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

You will get a very accurate figure if you add up all the litres of fuel you add, then average that over say 40,000 - 50,000 klms. May take a few weeks though.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

When having the Fuel Consumption display on, I have noticed the "Range" reading to alter depending on what type of driving I am doing. For instance, if I am doing some highway driving, and then turn off and stop at traffice lights, the "Range" km readings will drop. This looks like this reflects the recent drving activity, and I notice my averages will reflect the time from which it has been reset.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

MY14 Laredo Rear Park Camera Installed

Finally had my camera installed at Frankston Jeep.

The usual fishbowl view with no grid lines.

BUT, I must say it is a help in reversing up to van hookup and tight spots.

The resolution in my view is not bad, but I have never had a rear park camera before to compare it to.

So, not sure where to now??

Bit tired, think I might go home now.

Hi Bluey, contrast looks good during the day - just need to see what it looks like at night.

Bluey,
Have you had any problems with your ALKO hitch touching the vertical plate on your tow bar?

I have Jurgens Van with a similar hitch and the hitch clamp case touches on the tow bar tongue. There is very little room between the ball and the vertical edge of the tow ball plate. I had to change my tongue. Will flick you pic on PM later.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

All,

I had rear shocks (PRT 68069680AE) replaced on December 20 2013 under warranty and within 200 kMs the clunking noise returned; dealer looked at it today and said that they need replacement again, but have raised a 'case' with Jeep, and now it is a matter of waiting, waiting.
