Re: MIL Light stays on

Justal13, thanks. I've been looking through the TSBs, and there are a lot of them referencing the MIL light coming on for various codes. They all say to "Reprogram the PCM with the latest software"....

MIL Light stays on

I have a 2011 Grand Cherokee Overland with the 5.7L Hemi. Today when I went out to the store, the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Light, looks like an outline picture of the engine) stayed on the entire...

Re: Easy Entry/Exit Seat

Our 2008 Liberty has it, and we've had it enabled since new and the motor seems as strong now (at 106,000 miles) as it did when it was new. We have it turned on in our 2011 WK2 as well, and the only...

Re: Overland Alarm goes off for no reason

What did you have to do to turn the alarm off? If you had to lock/unlock the doors with the key fob to get the alarm to stop, then it was the security alarm. If you had to press the panic button on...

Re: Overly sensitive alarm?

Re: Overly sensitive alarm?

The turn signals flashing when the handles get wet while you have the key fob near the vehicle is due to the doors unlocking. It has nothing to do with the alarm. The sensors on the front door...

Re: Blower fan intermittent speeds?

I finally got mine in to the dealer last week for this issue and they applied TSB 24-004-11, which they said addresses this exact issue. It still does it, but mine is a 5.7L and the TSB that they...

Re: Blower fan intermittent speeds?

I thought that I'd add to this old thread instead of starting a new one since it doesn't seem that Jeep has come up with a fix for this yet. My 5.7L Overland does it too. It's much worse with the A/C...

Re: HEMI: Getting +1.5mpg better with use of Regular Unleaded (87).

Re: Why can't the QL be lifted?

It can probably be done, but no one has made a kit for it yet. You would lose the correct aerodynamic ride height for highway speeds and be less stable and more prone to rollover when on road, but it...

Re: Can someone check the gear shifter for me?

Since they all do it, I consider it to be more of a design flaw than a fit & finish issue.
