Re: Two ways to lock your keys in your car by accident or on purpose.

Based upon my research, the door shouldn't have locked in this scenario. The external button shouldn't work without the key fob.

Re: 2014 diesel production

What is the FSM? Regardless, again I ask why did the latest 2014 JGC Owners Manual get updated to show 130 ft/lbs of torque on the lug nuts. It did say 110 in the previous edition.

Re: 2014 diesel production

This is why I think the error is because 130 N-M = 95 Ft/Lbs. The 5th edition of the Manual, published on October 1st, was intentionally changed to show a lug nut torque of "130 Ft-Lbs (176 N·m)".
