Re: TPMS won't relearn

I'm only repeating what I was told by the dealer, as I had the same problem as the O.P., whereas the front tires were displaying their pressures in the rear locations on the Evic, and the display for...

Re: TPMS won't relearn

Sadly, I have a wealth of experience with the TPMS system.

A local tire shop destroyed two of my TPMS sensors when mounting my Blizzaks. After numerous attempts to fix their error, I ended up at...

Re: I like the chrome look....am I the only one?

I agree. I ordered Laredo mirrors and swapped out the chrome caps on my Overland for the Crystal Granite painted Laredo mirrors.

Re: Snow day

Not the best here in Maryland. 16" so far, with a total of 30" expected. Even with Blizzaks on my Overland, I don't think that I'm going anywhere, anytime soon.

Re: 15' Overland Headlights Turn On & Off, Weak Output

Sounds like it could be a loose ground. Check the two grounds on the passenger side frame rail in the engine compartment (below the fuse box).

These were finger tight on my '15 Overland....

Re: 2014 Shifting Quality Updates?

My '15 3.7 Overland started to shift roughly at 4,000 miles, about a month ago, primarily from 1st to 2nd, and 2nd to third. Took it to the dealer, who applied the latest TSB software update, but...

Re: Leasing a 2015 Overland

Are you sure that the money factor is .00007 , and not .0007 ?

To see the effective interest rate, multiply the money factor x 2400

.00007 = 0.168 %

.0007 = 1.68%

Re: 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland LED conversion kit installed in Fog Lights

To get the discount, you have to order from OPT7's website.

The H11 is the one that fits the fog light lamps.
