Could not drive grand cherokee off dealer lot!!!!
 
Just bought 2011 grand cherokee overland v8 and already problems. Dealer tried to open car with keyfob and didn't work. Went to another car and same thing with that car's key. Said that batteries sometimes die since car has been on lot for a while. Said just need to charge the battery so we could take a look at car. Figured he was talking about keyfob battery but actually had to charge car battery. Did it and everything worked great. Drove car to front, signed papers. Dealer went to get car cleaned up and when came back said that we could not have car today because radio does not turn on and driver assist lights on mirrors would not turn off. Said something must have happened when he jumped car. Service guys were already gone so they will do it tomorrow and deliver to me. Gave me a loaner. I am extremely concerned and upset that car already has problems and i don't even have possession of it. Is it the battery, electrical, or other technical issue? What would you do if this happened to you? Thanks in advance for any advice!

Probably didn't follow the correct charging procedure.

A reflash of the control module will probably solve everything. it might not be a bad thing depending on when the car was built, because they will probably load the most current one.

Wow!

I'd walk or ask for a discount...I mean you payed for a new, perfect Jeep...you should get it.

That's like watching a worker at Subway drop your food on the floor. Then pick it up and try to give it to you (after they wiped it off you know...lol)!
