Re: 2016 Cherokee Overland Issues

Maybe something special/unique on export models.
I have a 2014 with the complete Tech group and this is the first I have heard of a FCW issue or lane divergent issue. Mine has been flawless to date.

As is common most electrical issues/failures do occur early on. They are usually also flawless once fixed. I usually figure 1 year as the benchmark and after that its clear sailing. But there is always exceptions. But electronics usually become obsolite first.

I had to manually jerk the steering wheel back to avoid a head on collision. The engine light immediately came on along with the infamous ACC/FCW UNAVAILABLE SERVICE REQUIRED followed by PARK SENSE UNAVAILABLE. I looked at my console and both ACC and PS options were turned off.

I pulled over and shut the vehicle off. When I turned it back on, the engine light went off. I drove it another 4 miles and the ACC and PARK SENSE messages reappeared.

Later that day, I took it for another drive to see if I could duplicate the issue. About 25 miles into it, 4X4 UNAVAILABLE followed by PARK SENSE UNAVAILABLE came up. So I call my dealer to make an appointment and I open up a case with Jeep Customer Care.

While driving to work tonight, out of nowhere, the BRAKES locked up on me a 27mph with BRAKES displayed on the message interface. Scared the sh*t out of me. My dealer is 45 miles away and I am afraid to even drive the vehicle there for fear the brakes will lock up again. I have read numerous issues with the ACC/FCW but never to this extent. Any suggestions?
Please let us know what the service department says is wrong. Don't blame you one bit - definitely would not drive it like it is... sounds like something beyond one system.

On LaneSense, I did have a case on an expressway in a construction zone where there was a lane shift and the lane markers had not been finished properly and the system almost steered me into the 18-wheeler next to me. I decided to turn off LaneSense when going through construction zones, but don't do it anymore since I understand the system better now. Instead, I grip the wheel in construction zones prepared to assert my will as necessary.

On FCW, the radar attempts to lock on to the vehicle in front. If that vehicle turns into a driveway for example and the system doesn't detect you taking any braking action, even though you know there is no chance of hitting that vehicle, the system can only presume you are following that vehicle into the driveway and will flash warnings and sound alarms and even apply the brakes. When the driver understands how the system works, he/she can anticipate those conditions and slightly step on the accelerator which overrides the FCW system.

These systems are excellent for assisting in safe driving, but as with most any system, there are idiosyncrasies that when understood can be dealt with to the operator's advantage.

All the lights flashing on your dash is definitely a problem that needs to be addressed. Could be an electrical problem such as a loose ground somewhere.

Re: 2016 Cherokee Overland Issues

How does one test the FCW/EBA without coming dangerously close to slamming into something? I've tried both sensitivity settings and scared my girlfriend more than once trying to at least force an alert but NOTHING. Opposite of the OP's concern I know but maybe the same module?

Follow another vehicle with ACC on until it moves into a right or left turn only lane. As you continue your speed it should brake before passing the vehicle.

If you have adaptive speed control that should be a safer method. It will slow you down and/or brake as needed. Also if you are really concerned it works get a big box put it in the street or your driveway and run it over if you can. Basically the system self checks every time you start the vehicle. It is on by default unless you turn it off. The button on your dash under the u-connect for FCW should NOT be lighted. In those cases a lighted button means 0ff. Under settings you need to make sure all the correct items are checked off like "active braking". Also if your system or part of it is not working you will get a warning.
The few times it has activated on me the warnings and braking has been near simultaneous. Its all calculated on your speed and the other objects speed. Depending on the speed involved you are dealing with micro seconds for reaction time.
Also as a side note your lane sense will deactivate itself temporarily if you turn against it 3x I believe.
It is not meant as a self driving item, but depending on your lane markings and sharpness of the turn its not bad. It will even Yell at you if you do not keep your hands on the wheel. That happened once to me and my wife has never let me forget it.
The system I find is very passive and you tend to forget its there. But it will remind you for sure if the need arises.
I just love mine.

Just a safer suggestion.....................
