Re: 2014 Cherokee - Starting by Itself

Or maybe a defective fob. If the dealer finds nothing, she should switch fobs and see what happens.

Same with a '76 MonteCarlo w/400 CID at less than 1,000 miles. It was fixed and never had a problem again. It's just one of those things, but no big deal.

No need to flip to manual mode. Quoted from 2015 OM, it was same for MY14.

I used my '14 with the stock 18s at least two dozen times on ocean beaches. I dropped the pressure to 18 psi and never had a hint of getting stuck. Enjoy!
