Re: Auto lower/raise height when parking

Haha..funny..

When I read the initial posts in this thread, I was thinking "what are these guys talking about? My Jeep lowers itself when put in 'P' and there is an option for that in Uconnect...".

Of course I had no clue that this was a relatively new feature....

BTW, what I also noticed it that even in 'P', the vehicle sometimes doesn't go lower (or completely down) until you close the trunk.

I was thinking the same thing.

Correct, it will not lower when any door is open. I think this is a safety feature.

Re: Auto lower/raise height when parking

This thread was started in July 2012...which is why the OP had a MY12 at that time. Hemi2 resurrected it this morning.

2.5 years is a long time to wait for the Jeep to lower. It usually takes about 30 seconds.

Re: Auto lower/raise height when parking

Got tired of my 4x4 scraping the curb when backing up. Turned off the park option. Happy now.
