Re: Vulnerable DEF injector wiring!

In the link sterno posted are a couple pix of a screen someone else rigged to protect it. I'll probably be doing something similar if my Jeep ever arrives. I don't do any serious off-roading...

Wow. Any idea when that happened? If I were you, I'd be tempted to cancel and re-order...if the 2014 deadline hadn't passed. Now we're at their mercy.

Ugh...Java Yard. I've fallen into the black hole that is Java Yard and haven't passed inspection yet. A quick delivery is looking less likely.

I confused the description of what happens when you manually push the "lower" button to put it into Entry/Exit with what happens when "auto" is turned on.

BUT you bring up another good point. Is...

Re: QL lowering off road

Could it be the auto entry/exit setting kicking in, or do you have that option turned off?

Is it just me or does it seem that the closer one gets to delivery the longer the time between MOTS updates??? :cool:

Re: Welcome ALL 2014+ Jeep Grand Cherokee Ecodiesel owners!

So here's a question: Why is MOTS so far behind VOTS? I always thought it was the reverse. As of the 5:00 update this morning, MOTS sill shows no movement on your Jeep.

Works just like a Prius. Once started, the only way it'll shut off is if you push the start/stop button or run out of gas. Key fob in or out of range makes no difference.
