2014 Grand Cherokee Ltd.

Just picked up a new 2014 Grand Cherokee. The following has happened twice.

The car revs like it in in neutral, but still moving, and a green flag pops up on the dash board. Looked at the manual and no reference made. Dealership has never heard of it. Any ideas??

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Ltd.

Sounds like you are putting it into sport mode. Are you accidentally hitting the shifter down (some people rest their hands on the shifter) it is very easy to switch it into sport mode. That's what the green flag indicates.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Ltd.

Doesn't the green flag mean sport mode?

When you check it out, take it for a spin in sport mode.... it is fun to see the difference in how the JGC drives

If you don't have a hard copy of the Owners Manual [not the user guide], you can log into Jeep SUVs & Crossovers | Official Jeep Site | Jeep and use your VIN to request a physical copy of it. It is kinda thick, but in the glove box there's a little shelf at the top thats the perfect size to hold it.
