Comfort controls
 
I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland I would just like to bring in outside air through the vents. I have not been able to do this without the air conditioning system activating itself. The dealership is of no help, suprise, suprise!!

See "Manual Operation" starting on page 328 of the owner's manual (the big one that you have to order.)

Start by turning off AUTO control, and make sure that front defrost is off.

To get outside air without A/C, you need to be in "panel mode" (icon: an arrow pointing at your face) or "bi-level mode" (icon: two arrows, one to your face and one to your legs.) In the other modes (floor mode, mix mode, defrost mode), the A/C will "remain active." To change modes, push the mode control button (the one with an icon of a seated driver with arrows pointing at her.)

Set the temperature control all the way down to LO so the heater never comes on. Set the fan speed by rotating the big knob.

Thanks, I tried this and it works in my overland.

I know you can control the temp of driver and passenger individually, but can you adjust the fan settings for them separately also? I can't seem to find a way to do this.

No way
You can just open or close the vent holes to increase/reduce the air flow...

I THINK that on automatic it does this for you -- sort of. Obviously there's only one fan, but there are internal dampers that it opens and shuts to regulate temperature, which can accomplish the same effect.

There's nothing to set internal dampers separately for driver and passenger. But there's plenty of individual control on the upper vents. You can turn the wheel to close one down. That's much nicer than my old ride, where all you could do was point the airstream away from you.
