Confused about Tire/Jack mode 2014
 
I want to rotate my tires and install my rear splash guards, so I will be jacking up the car. I have quadralift, so I want to disable it from leveling the car. Looking at the manual it describes an Tire/Jack mode option in the uconnect. Why does it say this mode is intended to be used with engine running? Obviously I don't want to keep the engine running while I am swapping tires.



Tire/Jack Mode
To assist with changing a spare tire, the air suspension system has a feature which allows the automatic leveling to be disabled. Refer to “Uconnect® Access Settings” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.
NOTE: This mode is intended to be used with engine running.

In my owner's manual (V 4) it says;

"NOTE:
This mode is intended to be enabled with engine running."



Notice the one word difference? Did they change the manual or did you misquote it,?

I copied and pasted from R3. They must have fixed it. Thanks. That makes more sense and I need to download a newer manual.

put the thing in park, take your key fob in the house, then do the swap.

I don't recall if the lift requires the engine be running to make any height changes, but that jack mode is allegedly to keep it from doing anything...

The QL will level the truck with the engine off. Should you happen to park on a incline, the G.C. will level herself so she looks purdy.

Bringing up an old thread for clarification.


I know there is a "jack mode" in the settings. But reading the Quadralift information on WK2jeeps.com, it says to hold both the up and down buttons for 5-10 seconds to disable the auto-leveling. My question is, do they both do the same?


The reason I ask is that my brother has a 2-post garage lift, and I want to know for sure how to lift the vehicle without destroying the air suspension.

Yes I believe they both do the same thing. I think the reason being is that's how tire/jack mode was activated on the older 2011-2013 models that didn't have the fancy uconnect and all the settings within that. It looks like it just carried over into the 2014+ models. So its two different ways to achieve the same thing.

I had a flat repaired recently and the garage used a floor jack to lift that one tire off the ground. I forgot about this setting until after the fact (and they certainly didn't enable it). Hopefully all is well. I haven't seen any obvious issues.

I do wonder if this is more important on lifts that will take the entire vehicle off the ground.

No it wont hurt anything, its just a setting that disables the possibility of the suspension adjusting while its being jacked.

I had the Jeep dealer fix a puncture, and didn't tell them about the air suspension. The air suspension had problems after that, and ended up replacing the compressor assembly. Not sure if mine was a bad unit, or they forgot to turn it off and fubared it.

We/ I lift them all day without disabling the air suspension, the system does get a little mad and lift it's self to OR2 position normally while on a lift but there is no possibility of system damage. Vs. many old ford and Lincoln cars with air suspension would blow out the air suspension if the system was not turned off before service, our jeeps system is a lot smarter than the old ford to know to not hurt its self.
