Tow Bar issue
 
I am getting very frustrated after purchasing my new 2014 Grand Cherokee in Adelaide and when they couldn't fit a towbar that week they supposedly arranged for me to get it fitted in Queensland when I got back here. Almost 9 weeks later I seem to be no closer to getting one as they say there is a delay with the wiring harness, but some dealers seem to have overcome this problem, but not in Mackay, anybody got similar issues or answers?

I too need to attach a towbar and rig lights for towing. I was thinking about the Blue Ox wiring kit that bypasses the vehicle wiring. See it at Blue Ox - Tail Light Wiring Kit, Bulb & Socket . What are they trying to install for you?

This is being covered in the Australian Towing Thread that is relevant to you.

Hi everyone

I have been a long time lurker since taking delivery of my MY14 in July.

I picked up my Jeep today after getting numerous warranty jobs performed and one of these particular problems i would like to share with you.

It has occured to me that a lot of MY14 models that have brake controllers fitted such as Redarc or Tekosha do not have the 3 stop lights on there car as well as the caravan lights go on when the controller is manually activated.
This is LAW!!!! They must operate manually.If you were to take a caravan in for licencing one of the test requirements would be for you to manually apply trailer brake and drive forward to see if trailer brakes are working.
If your stop lights are not working you will propably get a work order on your 4wd.
Mine all work now and it wasn't a quick fix.
If you have had someone fit a controller for you and it doesn't work properly take it back to the installer and get them to fix it at there expense before you warrenty runs out.
A quick test is turn on the ignition and press over ride button.
If you hav'nt got 3 stoplights take it back.

I have owned my jeep for 87 days and it has been in the workshop for 37 days.

Ask me about wheel alighnments,aircond ,lefthand side rear window trim,TOWBARS,low fluid levals,pore pre delivery,crackling am radio,and did i mention Wheel alignment.

Elvin you haven't set your profile to say where you are located nor mentioned it in your post.
This is a multinational forum, so letting others know where you are helps as different countries have different specs.

Sucks your car has been in the shop for that long.

If you are also in Aus, then the same reply as I did above applies to you where the tail light issue has been discussed in great detail.

Export Towing Thread

I suggest you go to that thread and have a good read.
