What are you trying to figure out with the remote start? You press the button 2 times to start it. Or you just have the key in your pocket and press the button and brake pedal if it has push button start.

I know how to operate it, but was initially thinking about use case. Now I think I'm getting that too.

Is your 2WD or 4x4?

Re: Got mine today!

Nice! I have been looking for an 08+ srt, but I may get the WK2. It's hard for me.

I have to head to kirkland, Bellevue, and Renton doesn't have them!

Nothing like leaving your ac or heater on high from the night before or when you head into the office and remotely starting the vehicle and getting the inside nice and cozy. Remote start is a must here.
A friend of mine has a 2008 Chevy Malibu with factory remote start. On his car, when you use the remote start, the car will automatically turn on either the A/C or the heater to cool/warm the cabin regardless of how you left the climate control when you turned off the car.

I wonder if that's the way it works with the new Grand Cherokee?

The Jeep uses ambient temprature to decipher between whether heating or cooling should be used.

Okay, so in other words the Jeep does it too.... so that's good news. It makes heating/cooling the interior foolproof. No need to remember to turn the A/C to max before getting out of the vehicle!

Exactly

Just FYI for those that don't know, this is not a new feature only on the 2011's - my 2010 has it.

Re: Got mine today!

Keep in mind that the heating/cooling system on the WK2 is the "set a temp and let the vehicle figure it out" variety.

This means that when you fire it up, it will note the last set temperature and the current temperature and do what is necessary to attain the desired interior temp. Seeing as how there isn't much point to remote start if you don't need the temp adjusted anyway, it's a given that it would get working on that immediately.

Yeah, that's how my climate control works too. But my friend says that he can turn his climate control off completely and the car will still turn on the A/C to cool it off on a hot summer day. I guess you can say it's a "smart" system.

Re: Got mine today! E85 question

I took delivery on mine today too. Blackberry Pearll. Limited 3.6L Pentastar
Does anybody out there know whey there is no Flexfuel badge or yellow gas cap, or anything verifying that is flex fuel capable. The Jeep Website says it is.. but I cannot find a thing as I look through the owners manual.. owners DVD .. etc


The following is at the jeep official jeep.com website

http://www.jeep.com/en/2011/grand_cherokee/capability/powertrain/

Versatile FellowThe powerful V6 is also capable of operating on gas or ecologically friendly E85 ethanol fuel. Fill your tank with either fuel for a robust 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.
