New Cherokee Latitude odometer flashing

I've had my Cherokee for two weeks. I filled the tank for the first time and the odometer has been flashing ever since. My dealer doesn't know why, but is looking into it. Any ideas? (And yes, I've checked the gas cap, lol).
Thanks!

Re: New Cherokee Latitude odometer flashing

A Google search found this ... for what it's worth.

"Went to the dealer today. Had the tech look at it. Turns out there was a mis match of some sort in the computer. vin mismatch or something. print out says a ecu config. mis match. Did a reconfiguration procedure and proxiy relearn (no idea what this all means). The OD stopped flashing after that....sounds to me like they did a reboot and it fixed it. Said nothing more to worry about."


At least it shows you are not alone.

Took it to the dealer today and they re-set the system. The flashing stopped, even though they didn't know what caused it.

Re: New Cherokee Latitude odometer flashing

Another person with the issue said it was a problem with the daylight sensor. Swapping between day and night was causing the odometer to flash.
