Re: Cherokee Questions

As requested:

Installed the map update today. Everything went smoothy. Let my Jeep idle during the update. Not great for the gas mileage but beat playing games with the push button ignition switch.

Re: Software Flashes

Those are transmission flashes. Just a word of caution. Don't have them done unless you are actually experiencing a problem. Often times they will create a problem where there wasn't one.
