Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

That's my understanding, and the mechanic at the dealer agrees. However, I haven't tried it because for some reason the car won't accept the flash. I've spend many months trying to find out why. JA...

Re: The MY14 2nd Battery and DC Thread

It certainly isolates the car battery when the engine is not running. I don't know the circuit paths when they are both being charged though. In my case, both batteries are AGM.

Re: The MY14 2nd Battery and DC Thread

As you probably have seen here are conflicting views on DCDC chargers. The main negative being the limiting of the charging current to the trailer batteries to the capacity of the charger.

Re: Off Road 18"s

I can't fit my OEM 18" rim in the well, outside side down, hence removing the option of carrying stuff in the wheel. The spokes of the wheel hit a bulge at the rear of the wheel well.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

It is black DP420. As far as I can tell, it's the strongest one.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Just get the bronze pack from Customtronix. No hardware, easy install. But you might still want to ask for the rollback software to get back to OEM.

Re: The Towing thread

Great information Bob, thanks.
I'm surprised by the range in tyre pressures - especially the 25 psi in the trailer. How did you determine those?

Do you reduce them for corrugated/rough roads? On...

Maybe include at the start a screen shot of the build date sticker - there seems to be some implication that the rules were changed at some point and the VR on
Y disabled for later cars.

Re: Jeep service costs

I just called Waitara for a quote for the 40,000 km service for my 2014 Diesel - $1600 plus (I was so stunned by the $1600 I didn't hear the "plus"!). I said I had been quoted $980 by my Cessnock...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Best one I've found is made by Mercedes. 40ml bottle called "SummerFit" windscreen washer concentrate. Not too frothy and cleans well. Costs $4 - $5, and one bottle is more than enough for a jeep...

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

What I'd REALLY like, is to disable, or at least change, the speed at which the Quadralift drops from off road 1 to normal. It's really annoying that you can't do 80kph on a dirt road without the...
