2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

All High Altitudes have headlight washers. Turn the headlights on and push the turn signal lever in to spray washer fluid on the windshield and the headlights will be sprayed too! It makes a mess though.

Hmmm... never noticed it doing that on mine. Doesn't even mention the feature on my window sticker or build sheet.

Unless they removed it on 2016s. There's a thread here somewhere explaining how to activate them.

I went out in the garage and looked around the cutout covers with a flashlight. Those babies are fixed pretty good... can't see any indication of a washer nozzle behind them for the little bit I could see through the bottom gap. I've used the washers but never noticed any fluid flying up from the headlight areas.

Its a piece in the center of yhe black plastic about an inch across that pops out. If you have them, with lights turned on it should spray the lights the first time you push the windshield washer and then every 5th or maybe 4th time you press it i think it is. A power cycle resets it back to the first time. You'll hear it and see it it's pretty forceful. That's how it works on my 2014 summit anyway

I just checked my 2016 brochure, and it clearly mentions headlight washers on the Summit and SRT, but not for the High Altitude. Where's JTS when we need him! He can confirm it one way or the other.

Re: 2017 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

2015 High Altrude for sure has headlight washers. I know because mine does and honestly, I can't stand them lol. And here is why....I'm a pretty anal car detail kinda guy and there has been a number of times that I had to use my wipers when my Jeep is otherwise clean. Sure enough the stupid headlight washers activate and spray washer fluid all over the front of my car. I actually kind of want to disable them lol.
No idea about the 2016 HA. I would imagine they do, then again they did get rid of AFS headlights in Summit and SRT so I guess it wouldn't surprise me if they dropped those in 2016 as well.
