Re: Quadralift Air Compressor

That's a bummer. It's one of the reasons that I got the lifetime service contract on mine. I looked at all the electronics and gizmos and figured discretion was the better part of valor. I've never...

Re: Key Fob Recognized by Vechicle But Buttons Won't Work

It's the old saying: if you can't fix it with a hammer, it's an electrical problem.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

I love my Overland and the map updates are the only complaint I have about it. What is really frustrating is that my 2014 Mazda CX5 with the Tom Tom nav system is only $79 annually and it seems that...

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

I do believe that if you have the 8.4A radio with navigation added, you will have to reactivate the activation after installing the software. This means you will need the code to do so and you should...

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee Map Update

It's irritating to say the least. I just replaced my wife's 2001 Subaru with a 2014 Mazda CX5 GT with nav. The system is by Tom Tom. Annual updates are $79 and the updates are daily as Tom Tom has a...

Re: Secondary Hood Latch

I was surprised as well that it didn't trigger the alarm when she parked. My old Tahoe alarm would sound if the hood was open while the alarm was armed.

Re: Lifetime warranty worth the money?

The more technology you have on the vehicle, the more valuable the extended service contract becomes. The length of the contract should probably be based on how long you plan to keep the vehicle.

Re: 2014 JGC Overland Off-road mod suggestions

Winches are good. They can get you out of a lot of problems. You might look into some of those land anchors if you get a winch. There isn't always a tree or big rock where you need one.

More aggressive 18" tires and wheels will avoid the risk of damaging the rims offroad in rough or rocky terrain.

Re: 2014 GC Overland w/ 50"LED lightbar

Just don't be like the idiot around here with the Range Rover that keeps his on while driving down the road. It's bad enough when he passes me in the Jeep, but it's murder when I'm driving the MX-5.

Re: Memory seat linked to key fob

Move it to ACC first, then start when the seat is close enough. If it didn't work that way, the easy entry/exit feature wouldn't work.

Re: Memory seat linked to key fob

Does it move the seat to that position when you turn on ACC or Run? If so, it's working as it's supposed to.

There is a locking button on the hatch. It's hidden under the cover for the handle that opens the hatch.
