Confused about Tire/Jack mode 2014

I want to rotate my tires and install my rear splash guards, so I will be jacking up the car. I have quadralift, so I want to disable it from leveling the car. Looking at the manual it describes an Tire/Jack mode option in the uconnect. Why does it say this mode is intended to be used with engine running? Obviously I don't want to keep the engine running while I am swapping tires.



Tire/Jack Mode
To assist with changing a spare tire, the air suspension system has a feature which allows the automatic leveling to be disabled. Refer to “Uconnect® Access Settings” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.
NOTE: This mode is intended to be used with engine running.

Re: Confused about Tire/Jack mode 2014

In my owner's manual (V 4) it says;

"NOTE:
This mode is intended to be enabled with engine running."



Notice the one word difference? Did they change the manual or did you misquote it,?

I copied and pasted from R3. They must have fixed it. Thanks. That makes more sense and I need to download a newer manual.

put the thing in park, take your key fob in the house, then do the swap.

I don't recall if the lift requires the engine be running to make any height changes, but that jack mode is allegedly to keep it from doing anything...

The QL will level the truck with the engine off. Should you happen to park on a incline, the G.C. will level herself so she looks purdy.
