Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

For the volume issue, try turning up the volume on the iPhone while it's playing. Leave the volume on your head unit alone. For the time being As for only the front speakers playing, have you...

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

That is snotty and unhelpful to someone who had a legitimate question.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

Delete the device information on the head unit AND on your iPhone and start from scratch. That usually fixes the problem.

Re: iOS 8+ uConnect

3 and 6 work fine with iOS 8 on an iPhone 4S. Via Mobile works fine as well. Haven't tested the other functions yet.

Re: DEF Injector Protection

No duct tape. Just zip ties. I agree it probably isn't sufficient but it's a lot better than nothing. When I tied my injector line up last month, it now sits in a slightly recessed part of the...

Re: DEF Injector Protection

That would be my guess but it should be easy to check. Look under your Jeep and see if has the same ties that are identified in the TSB.

Engine Block Heater

Top. Without an extension I don't think it would reach the underside on its own. At least that's how it is on the diesel.

Possible, but hard to say. I poured in 2.5 gallons of BlueDef I bought at Walmart a few weeks ago and so far haven't had any problems. It was manufactured in early June, so it was pretty fresh. I...

Re: Incorrect DEF - See dealer

Other than the CEL itself, was there any warning that something wasn't right with your system? Did the pump just die? Did it make any noise before failing?

Interesting. The boxes at WalMart no longer seem to be putting the code on the outside of the box anymore.

Probably not enough time to get a skid plate from Dom. I think he's out of them. Try gently pulling the hose and easing it upward and zip-tying it to something convenient so that it's snug against...

If he's referring to the DEF injector on the underside of the car, that is a known design flaw. The harness hangs down from the frame and is an easy target for damage from things on the road or a...

Re: Vulnerable DEF injector wiring!

I think a zip-tie might be a little more robust against weather, but duct tape is the same basic idea. In the absence of a plate like yours, snugging the harness up against the bottom of the frame,...

It's absolutely not as effective as dom's skid plate, but since he's out of them and the harness is undoubtedly exposed, you can at least reduce the chance for catastrophe by zip-tying the harness so...
