I mostly miss my HEMI that my mom has now...
Empathy & understanding all around ! I'm "learning" to dislike that s/s too, especially when pulling into the garage at night . . . so I've "adjusted" into a new "habit" of turning it off as I pull into my apartments driveway & when I hit the door open button, pull in, No problem ! Who says an Old Dog can't learn new tricks ? HA !

"I'm new to the forum and perhaps someone knows if the engine stop/start feature on the new- for -2016, 2017 GC can be turned off such that you don't have to push the stop/start button each time you use your new GC?
Gary"

Just responding to this... i mean a simple start button? i'm not sure what the alternative is. I was then thinking maybe the SS feature where the engine turns off when stopped at a light.. I'm still not sure

Yes, the 2016 and later models have automatic Engine Stop Start whenever the vehicle stops, and automatic restart as you lift your foot off of the brake. Correct me if I am wrong, but I think this is currently just on the 3.6L V6.

It can be manually overridden with button on the dash, but the manual override needs to be repeated each drive cycle. In other words, it does not recall your preference to leave the feature off once you turn off the car.

Not popular with a lot of owners.

Re: Start/stop

Anybody know whether there are any differences at all in how ESS works on a 2017 vs. a 2016, or if it's exactly the same in all particulars? I'm wondering if they tweaked it in response to feedback.

I do not know, but it would surprise me if they changed it because if would probably affect their fuel economy ratings.

Thumbs up Stop Start memory of last setting !!!

After several weeks of work, I have created a prototype OBDII module that memorizes the last STOP-START OFF setting and restores it when you turn on the ignition on your 2016 or 2017 3.6 liter Grand Cherokee.
I know this will make a number of you very happy!



I expect to start shipping them in October or November.
There is a sign-up sheet on my website so I can gauge the size of the initial production run.

As a bonus feature, it also memorizes and restores the state of the SPORT button!

Here is the sign-up website: www.smartstopstart.com. There is no cost or obligation to sign up for notification of availability.

There is a video demo there also (sorry the audio is slightly out of sync, I need to redo it).
