Does anyone know how to partially close the tailgate? Trying to haul some larger stuff but I don't know how to properly work the power lift gate. Can you just pull it down and tie it down? Don't want to mess anything up

Yes, you can pull it down manually.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Has anyone else been getting a "service air suspension system" message? The icon came on a few days ago on my way to work. When I left to go home it didn't come back on. A few days later (yesterday) same exact thing happened. Not sure if I need to take it in - I'm sure the light won't be on when I get a chance to go - or if I just ignore it. Thoughts?

Learned from another member a few months back that pulling on the handle twice also puts it into manual mode when opening, good for when you are in a garage or other area with low clearance.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

I know there was quite a bit of pent up demand for these vehicles. Now that they have been on the road, have the sales numbers held up to expectations?

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

Stopped at the dealer to get the TSB and clear a check engine light, figured I'd add 1 gal of DEF while I was there in preparation for a lot of summer driving. The next day and 20 miles later I get a "Incorrect DEF, see dealer" and another check engine light. They said they used the MOPAR DEF and at least the part number on the service form matches. I'm now back at the dealer in a rental as they drain and refill. Any thoughts? Could this be a DEF shelf life issue? The temperature is upwards of 100 this week and 1/3 of the tank is still original from November.

Hey Koko,

Yup! By the sounds of it, it could well be an "old DEF" issue.....!

Just hit 3,500 miles on my Feb14 diesel JGC Summit. The MIL malfunction light came on last Sat just driving down the road. The engine had not quite warmed up to operating temps. On the way home I noticed that the resume feature on the cruise control failed to work on the way home. I took it to the dealer this AM at 8 and they had it all day and reflashed it with updates. I was concerned when the service writer kept saying the adaptive cruise would not work when I had told her several times and put it in writing that the resume only would not function. On the way home I checked the entire cruise system, ACC and regular cruise and everything worked well and the MIL light was not on. I'm very happy with the unit and we averaged 25 miles for the tank including mostly 70MPH and some climbing and 100+ city miles. Not bad with the 3.99 diesel.

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

The Jeep site has a couple updated manuals from when I last checked at the end of May:
Diesel supplement 7th edition; Owners Manual 8th edition.

Page 25 of the Diesel Supplement is interesting, looks like a new method for resetting oil life monitor. Good, because everyone was having trouble with the old way:

NOTE: Use the steering wheel EVIC controls for the following procedure(s)
Vehicles Equipped With Passive Entry
1. Without pressing the brake pedal, press the ENGINE START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position (do not start the engine.)
2. Press and release the DOWN arrow button to scroll downward through the main menu to “Vehicle Info”.
3. Press and release the RIGHT arrow button to access the ”Oil Life” screen.
4. Press and hold the RIGHT arrow button for one second to access the ”Oil Life Reset” screen.
5. Press and release the DOWN arrow button to select “Yes”, then press and release the Right arrow button to select reset of the Oil Life.
6. Press and release the Up arrow button to exit the EVIC screen.

I do not get this screen. My vehicle is an 11/13 build and I do not have the flash update of TSB 18-018-14 REV. B. Maybe this is a new function in that flash. Can someone verify that?
