Having said that, I'll try to remember to test it when I get home.
Actually, I just checked in the nice level parking lot at work. You can indeed leave the seat belt connected and exit the vehicle with it in neutral. I just did it now by buckling the seat belt behind me, then I got out (after verifying it wouldn't roll before shooting the video, of course).

Re: Car wash after shifter recall

Had my shifter recall performed several weeks ago and have used my carwash (touch free carwash) three or four times. All you need to do is insert seat belt and it stays in neutral. My carwash attendant knows the drill. I purchased seat belt inserts off eBay that I now use. It has a carbon fiber look handle with. "Jeep" logo.

Re: Car wash after shifter recall

You can go on Amazon and buy a seatbelt extender. It's probably 3-4 inches long and you can keep it buckled in. Car thinks you have seatbelt on.

Winters out here get fairly bad especially when they put all the snow melt crap on the roads. I take mine through a touch-less car wash where they spray the undercarriage of the vehicle as well.

I use it fairly frequently during these months.

Winter? Isn't that when your clothing changes and that strange cold white stuff comes floating out of the sky !

All razzing aside, we moved to Texas from Northern Illinois.....and we don't miss the winter one bit!

I bought my Jeep for the white fluffy stuff that comes out of the Sky.

Good test, HOWEVER, when I first had my shifter recall done I tested to make sure it works, and it wasn't until the vehicle started rolling that it slammed it into park.
If you want to try it again do the same test, but when you're outside the vehicle go ahead and push it a few feet... I bet it puts it in park ;-)

+1!! I haven't went through a car wash in over 20 years.I am too picky for anyone else or anything else to wash my vehicle.It's a good way to find imperfections or flaws or damage to the paint by doing it yourself.

Two questions:

Was your door open or closed?

Was your key in the vehicle or outside the vehicle with you?

The reason I ask is, if you leave the fob in the vehicle and close the door, it shouldn't auto park since it will assume you are in the vehicle if the seat belt is buckled.
