15 Overland gremlins

My 15 Overland started acting up Saturday. Took it out in the middle of the day in bright sunlight. Looked down and noticed the headlight icon on dashboard was lit up. Knob was on the auto mode so turned them on and off but they continued to stay on in auto. So I just turned them off and left it at that. Then went to store to pick something up. Come out and hit the tailgate button nothing happened so I touched the handle to open still nothing. So I go home with the windows down pull in driveway with car still running. Go to put the windows up nothing happens. No up or down try the back ones they work fine. Then just for curiosity I try the folding mirrors only drivers side folded. Now I'am really puzzled as to what's going on. I turn it off waited fifteen minutes go back turn key on and everything back to normal. No headlight icon windows and both mirrors work. Tailgate working with fob and handle. Have no clue as to what happened. Will see if it happens again. Only have 550 miles on it. Hopefully not a sign of things to come. I checked for any updates but the only one I found available for my vehicle is the 3/26/15 update but do not think that would help my issues. Has anyone else experienced these problems. ?

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

With continued issues, I've heard other members disconnecting the battery terminals, waiting 15 mins then power it back up. Heard that resets everything.

Sounds like many things are going on.

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

Just went outside and checked everything. All functions working normally but if it happens again I will probably do battery reset first. Then it will be off to dealer. I try to avoid service dept as much as possible.

With the fault now clear, how much effort do you reckon the dealership will expend on it? I wouldn't waste a phone call, let alone a trip there.

Fingers crossed that it's just a once off bus error Dennis. If it returns, I'd try to get diagnosis before cycling the ignition.

Cheers,
Steve

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

It will take a few weeks for you to get your settings in your evic set and understand how all your features work.

You can download your OM from jeep.com or wk2jeeps.com in pdf.
I used this alot the 1st month or 2

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

Yea I hope it was just an anomaly. And like was said you know dealer isn't going to be able to fix something that doesn't happen when they try to replicate problem.

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

Unfortunately problems like that just don't go away, even though we wish they would.


Since it is such low mileage I would bring it to dealer to record the problem. If it is a problem down the line it will be easier to argue if you can refer the problem since you got it.


I would reseat every fuse. And I would have grounds checked.
I'd also check for water in some of the common places. Like under drivers seat.


It could be as simple as one sensor going haywire.


Good luck.

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

Yeah that's the kind of thing that would always be on my mind after it happened. Obviously things don't just fix themselves so something is going on here. I'm at 750 miles on my new '14 Summit with no issues it's great, however I was tinkering and looking at things under the hood and like someone said above, just for grins push in all your fuses. I was surprised to see each and every single fuse was able to be pushed in a surprising amount. Even the larger fuses and relays as well. Might not be related whatsoever, but worth a looksy.

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

Even if it next happens on the last day of warranty, it's still recorded... and inarguable.

Re: 15 Overland gremlins

So far my 8 month old Overland has only had one problem that was cured by turning the ignition to off and back to run. My GPS was showing my Overland miles from where I was and even showed the Jeep going through the middle of a lake. About 1/3 of the value of a modern car is in the technology now. A lot of functions are software controlled. Just like your smartphone or computer, the programs sometimes need to be rebooted. If it happens again, take it to the dealer, but I suspect it's just a random event.
