MY14 GC Overland ACC/ FCW info
Hey Guys & Gals, just an FYI, whilst traveling from Perth to Albany several Roos jumped out in front of the car and the ACC/FCW did not respond at all and I had to brake hard to miss them. Not what I expected, I was under the impression that the ACC/ FCW would pickup the Roos jumping across the road and brake on my behalf, with a response time much much faster than a human could respond.

With all the limp mode issues I think we need a new power source. Are you thinking what I'm thinking????

Spotted on the M7 today, the answer to all our problems.

Not the greatest photos - a bit tough when driving.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

I've driven in a DeLorean, it was only up to 7-11, and I was about 10 years old, but super cool. It was only one of two officially brought into Aus. The fun of living next to a prestige car dealer, get driven around in all kind of cool cars.

I think author Matthew Reilly was making his look like the movie one. He fitted the 3.6lt V6 from the Commodore in his.

Looks Good that Rego plate. Can't make out the numbers.
Are they meant to pick up things like Roo's. That would be good because if so they would pick up humans too! I hadn't thought that deeply thinking they could only detect other cars or large objects like walls etc.
Anyone else got any ideas re this ACC/FCW.

The ACC/FCW quite happily picks ups cars in left and right turning filter lanes, brakes to an almost stop (pre full stop version - May build) from a long distance away. So a large roo or two should be big enough, one would have thought, to trigger the FCW.
The plates are JEEP I94I ( mimic jeep 1941), took quite a lot of effort to get that combo because of the word jeep. Had to include a mix of 4 letters and numbers before or after the word jeep, but not 4 numbers only.

Radar reflection from car is completely different from that of Roos. That's why FCW did not react.

It would be interesting to learn from those those have installed the ARB bar to know if the radar system has any issues given the elevation of the system. Jeep would have a reason to have it where it is. Maybe the radar is more or less sensitive to other objects other than vehicles.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

The FCW/ACC runs on LIDAR (LIght Distance And Ranging), not Radar, so it is Light (invizible 904 nano meters) not radio waves. So unless the Roo is wearing reflective clothing, it will not react.

The system is designed to reflect of vehicles not organic matter. Whoever said it would react to Roos, cows or aliens is incorrect.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

There used to be a black Jeep getting around Perth a few years ago. The number plate was BAA BAA.

My previous car was an XF Jag which displayed an orange alert when the DPF was getting full and a critical red alert a few days later if you didn't take any action. I had no end of problems clearing this early on, and once had the service guy in the car with his laptop plugged in forcing regeneration. We set out from Melbourne holding a low gear and nearly got to Geelong before the warning cleared.

Torque's nice and range is great but I bought a petrol GC after seeing too much of that orange warning light on the jag.

Cheers,
Steve.
Hi Steve,

Can you tell me if the supposed 10.4 litres per 100 k's average is achievable in petrol ? I also am being put off by the diesel problems being seen here, I cannot buy until November so maybe Jeep will have fixed it all by then (wishful thinking)
