Re: The Towing thread

After xdra10's comments yesterday, I emailed my dealer(Alex at Suttons) and he confirmed that his records show me having the MY14 harness fitted. I decided to have a look under the back of the car yesterday to see if I could see any stickers on the visible part of the loom. I was in luck:
Side 1
------
Desc: GRAND CHEROKEE MY14
Batch #: 700A.22.07.13
Lot # F7596
MADE IN TAIWAN

Side 2
------
Part #: AUS2014WKTBWL

Below is a link to some photos (if JG allows it).

I have not pulled apart the quarter panel trim yet, that is where any splicing would be. So no, I didn't see any signs. I won't be pulling the trim off until (a) my cable, circuit breakers and relays arrive for the install and (b) My wife lets me have the time to do it I'll try and take a photo log when I do install.

Re: The Towing thread

Dropped my jeep off at the dealers this morning so they could look at the brake light issue with the brake controller and the service guy told my that he could not promise me that he would be replacing the jeep modified loom.
I told him I wanted it replaced with the correct MY14 and I got no response.
Not Happy.
Will see what they have done when I go pick up the Jeep.

Re: The Towing thread

Just picked up jeep from the dealer and they have fixed nothing...
They have no idea why only 1 brake light comes on when you use the brake controller.

They told me the MY14 loom (AUS2014WKTBL) is still solder in and has no ECU in it.

The dealer has logged the issue and will advise me what Jeep say.

Not sure what to do now, It is not a big problem but I just feel if one brake light comes on they should all come on.

Will be waiting to see if anyone else can get all 3 jeep lights to work when the use the manual override on their brake controller.

Cheers Brad.

For those in the Brisbane Area Have there been any UConnect upgrades completed in the Brisbane area by Jeep dealerships? I haven't heard anything from my dealer and I am wondering if SEQLD have received their update yet? For the JG community, does anyone know if and when there will be a map update for the navigation system?

Sorry guys, wrong thread .....

Re: The Towing thread

Just had my P3 and Anderson plug fitted by Gibbos at Belmont. The P3 has been fitted into the cubby, but it is a little forward and the cubby door wont close completely. The Gibbos team tell me that hey couldn't get it back any further and still operate the manual over ride. Do any of you have a similar problem, or am I being fed a line.

Cheers

Re: The Towing thread

Fatboy, my p3 is in the cubby and the door closes with no problems, still have access to manual override and there is still plenty of room for my iPod touch and all media points still accessible.

No issues with my P3 fitting and the door closes with heaps of room. As you can see, I have full access to the manual override.

Re: The Towing thread

Interesting - the cubby on my 2013 Trailhawk is quite different to yours. No multimedia connectors, and the 12 v power socket protrudes so far into the cubby that mounting the P3 on the roof of the cubby would be difficult - as the door opens into that space also.

You're being fed a line, sorry to say.
I have my P3 in the cubby and my door closes fully and I still can access the override lever easily.
( I'd post a photo but I'm away at the moment with limited access to photobucket). Someone else probably will soon enough for you.

Re: The Towing thread

My P3 also fits in the cubby with the door closed. Mind you, mine is a MY12.
It could be that you need to remove the cubby, slot the holes so that you can move it back a mm or 2, and put it back together. Not a big job to do, but daunting if you have never pulled the console apart before. You will probably not get any satisfaction by going back to the sparky, as they are really only concerned in the electric side, rather than the cosmetic.
If you are down NW Sydney way, I can assist you to fix.
