Re: Gas gauge quit

On the way to Phoenix we averaged 19.8MPG at 70 to 75mph. It's mostly down hill from 5200' where we live to Phoenix at about 1100'. We picked up our new car trailer, filled up, and headed for home....

Re: Gas gauge quit

As we pulled in the driveway the gauge was reading just under 1/2 full which was correct for the 350 miles we had just driven. It must have had something to do with the car running with the nose...

Gas gauge quit

Yesterday we returned from a 700 mile trip in one day. Our GC Overland Hemi performed well towing a new car trailer home from Phoenix. Upon arriving home I noticed it had about a 1/2 tank of gas in...

Re: 2011 overland headlights

Understood, that's why I disabled mine as a personal preference for my type of use, so no problem with me. I just like having the choice. I'd also like to get rid of the annoying (driver seatbelt...

Re: 2011 overland headlights

If you are referring to my post about driving without DRL's and a seatbelt, then you are missing the point completely. I know the average city dweller needs their headlights on at all times, and...

Re: 2011 overland headlights

Perhaps simply thinking for yourself as to when you need your lights on would be sufficient. Personally, I don't need an auto manufacturer to tell me to run with my lights on all the time. I spend...

The guys who do free oil changes are not 'techs'. You get what you pay for.

Re: Turn Off DRL's on 2012 Overland

It's no big deal, you just pull the two relays (they are not fuses) and the lights go out. Nothing else is affected. Throw them in the glove box in case the forum headlight police show up.

Re: Opening key fab

Battery in Fob has nothing to do with starting the car, it only works the door locks. You can have a dead battery, or no battery, and the car will still start by recognizing the chip in the Fob.
