2014 Jeep Overland power seat problem

I've had this Jeep for 2 1/2 years are am unhappy with it basically because it is too high for me to get in and out. I'm 5'9 and still have problems. I've read the manual...tried "easy access" and nothing happens. At this point the buttons to program the seats don't work either. HELP!

Re: 2014 Jeep Overland power seat problem

Do you have the Quadralift air ride suspension?
Do your electric seats not move at all when you move the buttons?
Do you have an owner's manual or just the user's guide that came with it?
How do you feel about lowering springs?
2wd or 4wd?

Re: 2014 Jeep Overland power seat problem

Thanks for getting back to me. To answer your questions...

I do have quadra-lift suspension
When I use the buttons at the bottom of the seat, the seat moves fine
I have the users guide that came with the car
I don't know anything about lowering springs. Will that lower the whole car?
4wd

You can download the owner's manual from Jeeps website - Manual Link.
Follow that link, click the year, and model. The manual can be saved as a 4.38MB pdf file, so you can read through it all, or search via adobe's reader.

The manual will tell you how to program the key to go to preset 1 or preset 2 based on which key is used to unlock the door. It also tells you how to set the seat to go to entry/exit mode.

+1 on what Shots said. You can program the Jeep to drop down to Entry/Exit height mode via the quadralift and/or the seat will move back automatically to give you more space to get in and out. You do this through the EVIC buttons on your steering wheel. You can also go to Enter/Exit height by pressing the down button on your console. You can press it at speeds under 25 and when you reach speed under 15 mph it will begin to lower. Or you can wait till you get in the garage and press the down button but you will have to wait for it to lower. Opening the door or turning off the vehicle during quadralift operation will stop the lowering process.

IF that doesn't get you low enough, you can purchase step bars that you can use as a step to get in and out much easier. I'm just linking a step to give you a general idea of what they look like. You can get black or chrome. Search several sources for the best deal before you buy, again I'm just linking the first ones I find for reference: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_n...kee+side+steps
There are also a few threads on the forum concerning step bars and rock rails. I'm not familiar enough with the rock rails to say whether or not they double as a step, but they do look cool and help protect your vehicle if you go off road in rocky country.

Since you have Quadralift air ride suspension, you cannot use lowering coil springs to lower your vehicle.

Best of luck to you. Feel free to ask any further questions you may have. Plenty of good guys on here that have answers. Sometimes they can even agree on a single answer. (Sometimes) lol.

Re: 2014 Jeep Overland power seat problem

You folks are the best! This is the first car I have ever had that I've had so much trouble with..........because no one tells you.....no one knows........how to deal with it. 2 1/2 years later and I'm still confused to the point I'd like to get out of a very expensive lease. The car is much to sophisticated.......no one knows how to keep up with it. I have had 5 radios and the original clanging sound still happens occasionally. The dealer suggested I buy a $4200 extended warantee after my 3 year warantee is up........oh well....thanks for being there. First time I've gotten constructive answers.
