Has anyone else used the remote start from the key fob, then opened the hood and the car stopped? It's happened a couple times where I used the remote start, then needed to unplug the block heater and when I opened the hood the car stopped. I also had a similar incident opening the rear passenger door and the engine quit.

I have not looked it up in the 600 page Jeep bible but that is what happens when you remote start the engine then open the hood. It will cancel out. I don't know about the rear passenger door. The Jeep Owners Manual does say on page 20 that one of the conditions for remote start is Hood being closed.

Yeah, when I first picked up my SFU, the dealer had done a remote start and I opened the hood to take a look and it stopped. The dealer said that's what it's supposed to do.

If you push the start button on the dash before opening the hood it will stay running.

Yes because that releases the vehicle from the remote start mode and puts it into the run mode as if you were ready to move the vehicle. So if you do that you can then put the vehicle back into park and open the hood and it will keep running.

I think you are supposed to unplug the block heater before starting too.

Only reason I can think of is so you don't drive off with it plugged in.

It will start with the block heater plugged in, as long as the hood is fully closed. But if you open the hood without pressing the "run" button after using the remote start, the engine quits. Probably best not to let it run too long with the heater still plugged in though. I'm still learning the quirky little things about this wonderful vehicle.

ps. mpg's during this very cold winter in MN has been between 20 - 21 in mostly city driving, which I think is pretty good. That includes a lot of using the remote start, idling when going inside for a few minutes, etc. I never used to let my vehicle idle when going inside primarily because I couldn't lock the doors and keep the engine running. But now I can and with the extremely cold weather I like to keep the inside of the car warm when going inside for a few minutes. I'm guessing I'll see something more like the estimated combined EPA 24mpg when warmer weather and non-winter blend fuels come ....

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

There is a switch that is attached to the hood. Once you raise the hood it opens up and disables the remote start. My Dodge Magnum had this as well.

They have come with this for years as a safety interlock...you don't want to be under the hood and accidentally remote start the engine with your hand in there.

You can bypass it by locating the switch and jumpering it out.(Just confirm whether it is normally open or closed with the hood down)

Just had my jeep in to the shop again today for the intermittent abs trac 4wd issue. they are saying it is due to snow and ice building up on the wheel speed sensors.
Just wanted to share incase anyone else has the same issue or has heard otherwise.

Bummer you're having all those issues. Jeeps are made to run in snow and crap, something doesn't seem right.
