Re: SRT Engineers Round Table Discussion
just in case you missed this........

apologies that its another forum but SRT seems to spread these around. they will answer jeep srt q's if you all post them up.

I would suspect that scott can arrange the same in a few months time.

Re: SRT Engineers Round Table Discussion
I just bought a motor home and I have been looking for a car to tow behind it. It appears that the new Cherokee, to come out this fall, would be one of the few "modern" cars to be towable, four wheels down, without destroying their transmission. I would like to be sure that this is indeed the case. Does anybody know? Aside from that, from the pictures and the movies I have seen, the new Cherokee looks like a winner.
Thanks, mdalcant

Hallo all. I am the proud owner of a brand new 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, SRT. Great car, but I have some problems!

The app icon on my screen disappears some times, for no reason. And why did I buy a 80000.00 dollar SUV that cant even play a damn DVD????

I asked the dealer about the DVD and he said that the SRT people had an oversight? And about the app icon, I have to bring it in once again for re-programming?

I don't think SRT did their homework with this one? Please advise me if i should have rather bought a Land Rover or Ford?

Re: SRT Engineers Round Table Discussion
I have a 07' gc srt is it possible to swap the transmission with another srt model of the same year to a manual?

Scottina06 07-17-2014 02:06 PM

I've never heard of anyone to do this. Can i ask why?

Re: SRT Engineers Round Table Discussion
C2205 is also an issue that I am trying to track down. Did you get it resolved?

From what I have dug up it is a steering angle sensor failure. Some say replace the clock spring and some say the whole steering column. But, if you do it with new parts it appears the dealer needs to reprogram anyway..... any more info would be awesome.

Re: SRT Engineers Round Table Discussion
Just found this... so in short the whole damn thing needs to come out.. FML

Here's the technical answer to the Steering angle sensor.
This vehicle is equipped with a Steering Control Module (SCM) (4) that houses an integral, internal clockspring. On some vehicles, the SCM also includes an integral, internal Steering Angle Sensor (SAS). The SCM is secured near the top of the steering column below the steering wheel and is completely concealed beneath the steering column shrouds. The SCM is installed as a modular unit that supports the left (lighting) multi-function switch (1), the right (wiper) multi-function switch (2), the hazard switch (3) and the turn signal cancel cam. The controls for each of the switches extend through appropriate clearance holes provided in the steering column shrouds.

The microprocessor-based SCM utilizes integrated circuitry and information carried on the Controller Area Network (CAN) data bus along with several hard wired analog and multiplexed inputs to monitor both the right and left multi-function switches, the ignition switch, the horn switch, the speed control switches and the remote radio switches. In response to those inputs, the internal circuitry and programming of the SCM allow it to control and integrate many electronic functions and features of the vehicle through both hard wired outputs and the transmission of electronic message outputs to other electronic modules in the vehicle over the CAN data bus.

The SCM circuitry, the clockspring, and the SAS are all contained within a flat, round molded plastic case. The back (instrument panel side) of the case has an integral mounting bracket that is secured to the stationary steering column housing with two screws. The back of the case also features a total of five integral fixed connector receptacles. The three upper receptacles are direct interface connectors for the hazard and multi-function switches and are concealed when these switches are mounted. The two lower receptacles connect the SCM to the vehicle electrical system through two take outs and connectors of the instrument panel wire harness.

The face of the SCM case consists of the rotating clockspring rotor with two integral connector receptacles and two pigtail wires with connectors located near the top. One receptacle receives the connector from the remote radio switches, and the other receives the connector from the horn switch and the speed control switches. The two pigtail wires contain the multistage driver airbag squib circuits. The turn signal cancel cam (not shown) extends from the back of the SCM case but is secured to the hub of the clockspring rotor and is keyed to the steering shaft so that it rotates the clockspring rotor with the steering wheel rotation.

A service replacement SCM is shipped with the clockspring pre-centered and with a molded plastic locking pin installed. The locking pin secures the centered clockspring rotor to the SCM case during shipment and handling, but must be removed after the SCM is installed on the steering column and before the steering wheel is installed. The service replacement clockspring is also shipped in a standard configuration and must be electronically configured for certain optional equipment before these features will be operational. This optional equipment includes: automatic headlamps, front fog lamps, rear fog lamps, and SAS. Using a diagnostic scan tool, follow the programming steps outlined for CONFIGURE SCM under MISCELLANEOUS FUNCTIONS for the SCM/STEERING CONTROL MODULE menu item as appropriate.

The SCM has programmable memory that can be reprogrammed using a diagnostic scan tool and Flash reprogramming procedures. The SCM cannot be adjusted or repaired. If ineffective or damaged the entire SCM including the integral clockspring and, if the vehicle is so equipped, the SAS must be replaced. The left and right multi-function switches, the hazard switch and the turn signal cancel cam can be removed from and are serviced separately from the SCM.
In laymens terms, This sensor is an input for the (ABS)Antilock brake control module,(ESP) Electronic stability program,( PSPS) Power steering pressure sensor if equipped. A failure in this sensor can prematurely trigger the ESP or ABS while negotiating a turn or a premature pulse on the braking system during a slip on a tire.

Here's the technical answer to the shifter assembly, AKA, Electronic shifter module.

The Brake Transmission Shifter/Ignition Interlock (BTSI) is a cable operated system that prevents the transmission gear shifter from being moved out of PARK without the proper driver inputs. The system also contains a solenoid that is integral to the shifter assembly. The solenoid works in conjunction with the park lock cable (5) to permit shifter movement out of PARK when the brake is depressed.

In laymens terms, This unit is an electronic module that sends signals to the transmission for shift commands by the operator. Shifting is part mechanical and part electronic(Drive by wire). If this component fails, You might experience the shifter cannot be shifted out of park, key cannot be returned to the lock position to name a few.
I would ask whom ever scanned your jeep for DTC's if the codes are active or stored. Stored means it could be an intermittent issue if that or if it's active, the problem is most likely to interfere with the proper operation of you vehicle.

I believe that P0607 is a fuel system problem. Where the exhuast fumes are not able to escape and will not effect the performace of the vehical just the ignoring engine light will be on.
