Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

We have a 2014 Grand Cherokee Summit EcoDiesel Cherry Red w/Jeep Brown interior. We purchased it on Jan. 8, 2016 & have had issues since we drove off the lot. Unfortunately, the dealership stayed open late to finish the sale & was then closed when we realized the issues. It was also located out of state & we had to get back home to the baby.

The remaining issue is the failure of the Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights to work. The latest dealership to work on the vehicle claims that it doesn't have adaptive headlights installed & that those are only available European vehicles. We know this to not be the case as everywhere online lists them as a standard option for the 2014 Summit, it's listed as standard on my moparmyconnections list, & we ran the headlight part #'s & verified that they are the Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights part.

We're confused as to why they would continue to claim that they aren't installed...what do they have to gain? We already have a Star case & now aren't getting called back by our case manager. Does anyone have thoughts on how we can get this matter resolved?

The issue is that when we check the headlights in the uConnect menu the check mark removes itself after about 1 min. We were also told that the AFLS module installed is for a European module?!! Thoughts?

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

How long has this been going on and have you tried another dealership?
Each dealership is independently owned and operated.
I would be calling Jeep HQ and raising a concern. Also if there are other Summits in your area see if they have adaptive headlights. I know my Overland has self leveling but no turn in feature. Additionally many early model JCGs had mixed Euro and US parts you might have one of those!!!

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

It sounds like they have a wrong control module in there. Once checked in the uconnect it should stay checked and the lights will then be active all the time. I have had no issues with mine and mine was an early 2014 build.

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

If your Summit is a 2016 adaptive headlights have been deleted from the model.

New: DELETED - Adaptive headlamps no longer offered on Summit or SRT (formerly standard for 2014-2015 model years)


edit: Just saw it was a 2014

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

Thanks for all of the replies. Our 2014 is a bit unusual as it was built in 2012 & was a Chrysler corporate vehicle that left the factory at the end of February 2013. It was never officially titled anywhere. We got it from a dealer who bought it at auction. It only had 18k miles.

We definitely know that 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit's come standard with adaptive headlights because we drove another 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit & it had it. Plus the moparmyconnections page for my vehicle has it listed as standard. The latest dealer tried to tell us that it only comes with self leveling & self leveling is adaptive headlights. They just seem really poorly trained. They are a major dealership in our area with multiple locations.

Chrysler was the one who set up this most recent appt b/c we have a star case & our case manager is arranging the repairs.

We're just trying to understand why the dealership would tell us that we don't have adaptive headlights when the headlight part # on our vehicle is plainly for adaptive headlights. Why would they install 2.5k worth of adaptive headlights & have it in the menu to select & have an AFS module if this car didn't come with adaptive headlights. Boggles the mind.

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

Just an idea, but I wonder if they plugged in the chrysler scan tool if they can find anything if they dig around in there. Maybe somehow it's not properly programmed in the main computer settings. That's easy enough for them to plug and and check things out.

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

One question came in asking if we had the feature checked in uConnect. That's exactly our issue...when we attempt to check the feature it stays checked for about a minute & then unchecks itself. So the adaptive headlights never actually initialize. Any thoughts? We've tried unplugging the battery to see if that would re-set things like someone suggested, but it didn't work.

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

Try another dealership. It's like finding a good friend, sometimes you have to go through a few bad ones first before you find a good one. (I was going to say good woman but I don't know how PC you guys are yet)

Re: Bi-Xenon Adaptive Headlights

Sounds like it is a preproduction model and used for testing / evaluation purposes. These are usually not sold to the public due to unusual specs as they may have added / removed options before deciding on final specs and they normally have questionable fit / finish.
