Re: Locking door with handle button

Same here, also on a 2012. I find that if I cycle the function (touch the back of the handle to simulate unlocking, then push the lock button) it then locks. Annoying, but it works repeatably. This started as an issue only on the passenger door. Now, I sometimes have to do this on the drivers side. I have changed batteries in the fob, just in case, to no effect.

Re: Locking door with handle button

Mine is the same. If I am not very careful when locking the car and touch anything other than the button at all it will not lock. I find that if I give it a second and make sure I do it right it will lock. I also like using the hatch lock as that button is more substantial and locks on the first time, every time.

Theoretically, that's true...but my passenger side door disagrees and still requires three touches of the button.

Re: Locking door with handle button

I have not had any issues with my handles while locking and unlocking so far on my 2014 Summit. I have however realized that if I have the key in the same pocket as my cell phone the doors will not lock or unlock at all. I thought I was crazy but once I took the key out of the pocket with the phone and moved it to another pocket the door locks worked just fine. I had my girlfriend put the key in the area where she keeps her phone in her handbag and again the door locks would not work at all.

Re: Locking door with handle button

2014 Limited, 51,000 miles: my buttons on both front doors and the rear hatch hidden round button lock everything on the first try. I've never had a problem. But, I too have noticed that if the key is in any way behind my iphone it WON'T lock the car. This happens with the key and phone in the same hand, or both thrown into my leather messenger bag/satchel/briefcase, whatever you call it. I flip that hand over or flip the bag so the other side faces the car, and it locks. Maybe you have some kind of interference from a phone, RFID blocking wallet, metal business card case, etc.

Re: Locking door with handle button

In my case, my iPhone is in a belt holster on the opposite side of my body from where my keys hang on a belt-loop. My wallet is also on the opposite side from the keys in my front pocket. The passenger door still prefers the "three for a quarter" shuffle"...

It's like it goes to sleep and I have to push a button to wake it up and then enter a command. The dealer said that is how it's suppose to operate. Not buying it. Jeep is going in again this week since I am now having radio issues with touch screen losing features and controls not registering. I will let you know if they find anything. I'm not holding my breath. Unfortunately I have learned to live with these little nuances or bugs as they are called with all the technology.
Both my 2014 and 2015 require doing the Double click twice on the FOB for the hatch. It is, just the way it is. Really no biggy.

The door handles can be a little touchy sometimes, locking or unlocking. They work correctly 90% of the time. A lot of times I use the lock button on the inside of the door before I close it. I often use the rear hatch lock button too, which works every time.

Re: Locking door with handle button

My key fob is always in a pocket by itself and my '14 Summit occasionally will require multiple presses on the driver door handle button. I noticed recently it seems to have been working fine requiring only one touch, and now that I think about it it hasn't rained at all in a long time, and I didn't wash the car for a couple weeks. I gave the car a bath yesterday so we will see how the door handle lock feature work and see if the issue can be traced down to maybe something to do with water.
