Re: Locked out

Can't be a folktale, as he has not mentioned wearing a cork hat or thongs.

Re: Locked out

Well we did have the hammer for the tent pegs which would have been the last resort but given that I am sure getting window glass would be a 3 month wait patience was a necessary virtue.

There is something very sad about looking thru the car window at your fridge full of beer and food. So close but so far away!

Another interesting jeep fact we noticed last night is that when the lightforce spotlights are on reflections from roadside markers and signs Turn highbeam off, just as well the spots are manually switched otherwise the lights would of been in an endless loop!

Re: Locked out

good to hear you and family escaped unhurt. Imagine the terrible things that could have happened eg: wildlife attack while locked out of the car. I will make sure that a wooden spoon is cabletied underneath the car, just in case.

Re: Locked out

You can turn auto highbeam off in the EVIC, then you wont have that issue.

Is that the same as pulling the stalk one notch towards you. (push one click forward to turn auto high beam on or one click back to turn it off...pull back again for flashing back at random's usually in old Hyundai Getz that have never come across HID's before. Times like that i wish I had half a dozen Lightforces strapped to the front to frazzle them to a crisp.

You can disable auto high beam in the evic, so when you push the stalk towards the instrument cluster the high beams will stay on until you turn them off.

I've turned the auto feature off, because when I want the high beams on, I actually really want them on.

Re: Locked out

Cheers for that. I'm gonna do the same once I finish impressing my passengers with all the bells and whistles I keep finding. One day, I might even get to read the manual!!

Re: Locked out

I also turned auto highbeam off as I found they wouldn't come on quick enough when I needed them, and then turned off a second too late for my likeing.

Gribbs is on a distinguished road
This happened to me with my two children in the car.. Classed as a major safety failure. Dealer said jeep aust recons it is impossible, the tribunal case in three weeks might prove them wrong. I've got emergency 000 calls and police attendance to prove it
