Re: Jeep survey, Text responses, Uconnect and Apple

Yep, that's what I do. "Hey Siri, tell my wife I'm on the way". Works great...usually. :-)

Re: Too High Incline, Truck goes into neutral? wont shift?

First question: They have hills on Long Island? :)

Serious question: Any chance you were very low on fuel at the time?

Re: 2014 GC Diesel with P20EE Code

Well that's an odd way to word it! Seems to me FCA does know what's causing it and how to fix it. They update the software, then if that doesn't help (I've been 3,000 miles since P2OEE came and...

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Good question. Our Cherokee has fewer Uconnect issues than our Grand. It stays in shuffle, EQ doesn't seem to have the "sleep' issue, etc. I did not check to see what the official change list was,...

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Our early May build 2015 "baby" Cherokee DID require the update, so I'm guessing most 2015 Grands also require it.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Seriously? They haven't fixed that bug yet either??!! I thought someone else reported that it had been fixed.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I'm sure it's like our 15 Cherokee with the feature. If the cabin temp is too far from what the climate control is set to, the feature is disabled.

I'm not sure why there's so much hate for this...

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

I love the shifter in my 14 JGC.

I'm guessing they're going to make it more like the one in the "baby" Cherokee. As bill_de says, that will make it more like a "normal" (old, outdated!)...

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Anyone know if shuffle is retained between restarts when using an SD Card as the source?

That and the equalizer having to be "woken up" every time are two biggest annoyances.

Re: Engine oil level above the MAX

The problem is that oil won't rise up into the dipstick tube until you break the seal. So let the Jeep sit for a while, pop the stick up an inch or so - enough to break the seal, then gently push it...

Re: Jeep CRD grand Cherokee performance data

Re: Reliability of the 2015 Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel

The only common problems with the 14/15 Ecodiesels are the P20EE errors (mostly 14's so far) and broken DEF injectors. The first seems to be resolved on the 15's and was a simple fix even on the 14's...

Based on what I know about the cause of the P20EE error, it's extremely unlikely that was the MIL when the car was brand new. I believe it takes several thousand miles before the effects of too much...

Most people have no issue with the 8 speed and those that do...

Re: green diesel engineering tune

The cruise variation is part of the GDE tune. Helps improve MPGs on the highway. The idea is to bleed speed going up hills and regain it going down. Driving that way definitely improves mileage.

Re: Me and my MPGs

This is absolutely NOT true on my JGC (2/14 build). I reset the trip computer and went over 400 miles, they never did sync. This 300 mile thing is definitely not universally true.
