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.

Re: Full Tank upon Delivery?

My JGC had a full tank when I picked it up, but it had electrical problems which caused it to go back the next day. The dealer kept it and gave me a Chrysler 200 as a loaner. The next day he called...

Re: Clipped Mirrors instead of Head On

Glad you weren't hurt and that the damage wasn't worse. I've lost a number of mirrors on various 4x4's over the years to idiots like that and they have never stopped. But, in the old days, you went...

Re: MY15 Overland. Keyless entry is sh1t

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

Just wondering how long it might be. If I were really concerned, I would contact Magnus directly, but I imagine he's pretty busy right now.

You shouldn't have to press the button when you unlock it - just have the key fob in your pocket and grab the handle, wait a second and open the door.

When locking the vehicle with the button,...

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

There is a delay in the front camera coming on, but I didn't think it was as long as 4 seconds. It might be; I've never timed it.

Re: Forward Collision Warning Problem

Good luck. Since no codes are thrown and it's almost impossible to get it to happen while at the dealership, they can't come up with anything as a rule. I doubt your dash cam is the problem. I've had...

You may have difficulty finding such a vehicle as the nannies want the lockout and it is more and more common every year.
