Set the ignition to RUN, hold the accelerator pedal down for at least 30sec then press the brake pedal 6 times. At that point you should see the indicator go off. Take feet off the pedals and switch off.
and if ever you work on your neighbours BMW X5 this sequence is used to reset the brake pad wear indicator!

(look - I know its not on topic - just thought it would be handy - that's all!)

Have a great Christmas.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that in the southern hemisphere, it has to be done in reverse order and with the car pointing out of the driveway not into the driveway .

John, is that fair dinkum about the BMW or are you pulling my leg?

Anyway, here's another great little servicing tip. You may have noticed the plastic hex nut on top of the oil filer cap. It's the same 27mm hex nut as on the two fuel filter caps. Not too many people have a 27mm spanner or socket handy and getting a shifter in there is near impossible and likely to damage the nut. I was toying with getting a 27mm socket but didn't really want anything with a 1/2" drive for fear of over-tightening the plastic caps. My attempts to get an appropriate tool locally was met with blank stares and head scratching so I got this little gem from Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o00_s00 . It's just perfect for the job and I just happen to have a little 3/8" ratchet and extension in my tool box. Highly recommended! Price plus freight from the States is no more than I would have expected pay to get one here.

When removing the fuel filters, be prepared to loose about 1/2 litre of fuel. If you clean the area well beforehand you may be lucky to catch the fuel in a container without contaminating it. It can then be reused. My filters showed no signs of any gunk on the outside. By blowing into the centre hole I was able to sort of back-flush them. Amazingly diesel tastes not nearly as bad as petrol. I'm assuming that the outside of the filter is the inlet which would seem logical but I could be wrong. I opened the water drain first but there was no sign of water. Opening the water drain is probably something that should be done as a mater of course after every river crossing.

Re: Jeep service costs

Nope, wasn't pulling your leg about the reset sequence - used a few years ago on a 2010 X5. Dealer wanted several grand to do front rotors and pads, so imported the bits from the US and did the job for less than $500 including freight.
Back to Jeeps, I changed the fuel filters on the 2012 (using Wesfil from Eziautoparts), roughly about every 20k, and each time both filters were dark stained, no sign of gunk or water. Biggest issue was getting under.
Best guide I have seen
https://www.servicechamp.com/images/56084service.pdf
Well worth carrying spare filters, apart from the ridiculous Mopar price in AU, they aren't readily available away from the East Coast or Perth. Mine are tucked down beside the spare.

Yes, I just wanted a look to see if all was OK. They looked in good condition, dark grey, not pristine white but then they were wet and have been doing there job. No sign of rust or grit. I saw no need to replace them. It's not like an air filter. Head loss across an air filter makes the engine work harder but head loss across fuel filters does not affect rail pressure unless almost completely blocked. By that time I would hope the Jeep would throw up a code or two. Anyway, fuels are so clean these days. Occasionally I've had to use truck diesel but mostly it's premium diesel which I know, at least in the case of BP, has an in-line filter at the bowser. I'd be more concerned if using diesel from a dodgy country servo or a farm tank. But like John, I do keep a couple of spare filters handy.

Re: Jeep service costs

Related but maybe I should start a new thread? I too believe fuels are good now but have convinced myself that a fuel pump in the tank is getting increasingly noisy. Passengers have been asking about the "whistle" for a while but I didn't suss it until I was a passenger and was standing on that side with the engine idling. Quite a hum from the pump.

Changed the filters to no avail. I'm wondering whether others have noticed a noisy fuel pump when standing near the LHR door?

Thanks

Re: Jeep service costs

Take a look at this post:
Whistling/whining noise when engine running
No conclusion though. After another 30,000km, my noise is no longer apparent.
Thanks,
Russell

Just curious, have you had the fuel pump recall done yet?

I must have missed the pump recall - do you have a number for it?

Re: Jeep service costs

Just booked in for the 50,000 klm service. I notice that the fixed price service does not match up with what is in the service manual.

Re: Jeep service costs

Yep - the ongoing automatic fluid issue. When my 50k was done I specifically got a quote for the service but when I picked up the car they tried to add the cost of the auto fluid to the bill. Needless to say I held the dealer to the quote - not my fault JA don't know what they are doing......
