I do a lot of reverse parking (nose of car facing entrance of parking space) bc I like parking my JGC in spaces that are next to curbs, to help prevent tight parking lot mishaps (door dings, fender benders), and I hate how the mirrors don't tilt straight down from their saved position. On my JGC they tilt down and inwards a bit so when I use them to reverse park, I'm usually not parallel to the curb, lol. So I like to just pop open the driver's door and look down and maneuver car that way. But I guess with this fix, I won't be able to do that anymore.

EDIT: I just remembered, I do have small seatbelt extenders I could just pop into the drivers seat belt buckle.
The seat belt extenders would work, but you can defiantly decline a recall we have had 2 SRT customers decline the S27 recall already.

The autopark kicks in when the door is opened whether the seat belt is buckled or not.

This 'feature' and GM"s new "Don't broil your baby!" buzzer are two of the most clear signs that we're in terminal decline as a species and Skynet can't become self aware soon enough.

You'd think FCA would think of those things, but apparently they were in a hurry to get the recall out because of the Star Trek goof that ran over himself. Bet there will be another recall to fix this recall eventually.
The recall was in progress and even out before the Star Trek guy proved he can navigate a star ship, but can't drive a vehicle.

I wouldn't bet they'll modify that behavior--too many lawyers involved.

Unfortunately that all breaks down at the "pay attention" point, or we wouldn't be having this discussion.

Some countries actually require demonstrated ability to drive before you are allowed to endanger yourself or others. We just make you sit in DMV lines for a few hours and answer questions you can do without even reading the manual in most states if you already have a license from anywhere else.

Incorrect, I have performed 30+ S27 recalls personally and I just performed 2 more today, and if the drivers seat belt is buckled and the door is opened it will NOT autopark, you could drive home from the dealership with the door open the whole way without issue.

I just tested it out today because I was curious and autopark kicks in on mine with the seat belt buckled or not.

Wow I would love to hook up your jeep to our WiTech scan tool software and see if your IPC module was updated or not, it should not autopark with the seat belt plugged in if the recall was performed correctly. Do you get the message on the cluster that says "autopark is engaged" when it autoparks?

Re: Shifter recall- unintended consequence that costs us $$$ now

Dealership performed the recall on mine during my last oil change. I can confirm mine will not auto park if the seatbelt is fastened.
