Re: Another 9-speed transmission thread.......

Agree with much of what you said, but the biggest problem was in fact a hardware problem: namely the C-Clutch snap ring. It's unclear whether that was a ZF error or something FCA screwed up at the...

Re: KL Cherokee Accessories Timeout

Was your KL purchased in North America? A month ago I was doing some OBDII/CAN Bus testing and left the ignition on without the engine running for over three hours.

Re: KL Cherokee Accessories Timeout

As @SeaComms commented, what's the harm in leaving the ignition in RUN state without the engine running? Might run the battery down a little quicker. Other than that, it's not like an old car with...

Re: I'm mising something-Select Trac buttons

Re: New Transmission for my 2015 Cherokee

One way is to take it to a dealership when it's time for oil change and rotation. They hook their wiTECH tool to your KL's OBDII port and it scans for updates assigned to your VIN. Then it downloads...

Re: Blue Ox Baseplate for Trailhawk

Not that I know of. I believe the reason is the TH hooks bolt into the same frame location as is used by the base plates.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee rv tow wobble

The OP is talking about towing behind a motorhome where the PTU is shifted into neutral so there is no attachment to the transmission or the RDM.

Is the only failure unlocking the doors via the hand sensor on the exterior door handle (hand unlock feature)?

If yes, does the hand unlock feature on the passenger door fail too?

Only if the operator doesn't know how to control ESS. I only allow it to stop when I want it to.

I like it. I control when it shuts down the engine by using the brake pedal, so it's a nice option to have, especially at those long traffic light intersections.
