  1. HELP: Apparent electrical defect in new 2020 Grand Cherokee

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    It sounds like an issue in the output stage of the audio amplifier. It should remain "muted" momentarily as the power is applied upon energising the accessory power. If not, you will get a single pulse of power being applied to the speakers... which you hear as a "pop". You can try a hard reset...
  2. Diesel Overheating

    Export & Diesel Powered Jeep Models
    Unlike many vehicles, there is no "dead zone" on the gauge... it is accurate and responsive. However if the fan only acticates as the temperature reaches the upper levels you're seeing, then I would suggest that there's a problem there. Cheers, Steve
  3. Servicing

    Export Grand Cherokee 2011+
    Kraft Performance (JeepKraft) do my best servicing. I haven't read any complaints about Aztech either. Cheers, Steve
  4. SCR for Diesels in Australia

    Export Grand Cherokee 2011+
    If you filled up at last opportunity you would have to be out there for a while. It's like anything... plan and equip yourself adequately.
  5. Scary Transmission Problem

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Door open and seatbelt removed.
  6. 2018 JGC rolls in park. How much is too much?

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    "Parking Brake". Just get in the habit...
  7. Creaking noise sounds like a boat about to sink

  8. Google Maps audio problem

    When you plug in the USB, do you see a notification on the phone to disable USB Tethering and instead select Charging Only? I'm not sure of the exact wording... I haven't done it for ages. Cheers, Steve
  9. 2014 WK2 clicking sound behind glove box

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    I'd have a guess that would be blend door gears jumping. Maybe try adjusting the hot/cold and air outlet settings to see if you can make it respond. Cheers, Steve
  10. Grand Cherokee Wk 2 Alternator - Australia

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    You missed emphasis on the "and/or", which indicates that Jeep have not stated that the diodes always go short circuit as you initially suggested.
  11. Siren Alarm Battery Fault

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    No clue here sorry Callum. Aussie JGC alarms just use the car's horn... I was just speaking from general experience with car alarms. The dash warning is something I've never read of before. Maybe post a photo? Cheers, Steve
  12. Siren Alarm Battery Fault

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Siren backup batteries are usually in the siren assembly. Cheers, Steve
  13. 2019 GC Trailhawk Cabin Air Filter seen from Engine

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    That's a pretty disappointing omission.
  14. Grand Cherokee Wk 2 Alternator - Australia

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    From the US recall document regarding 160A alternators, which I already had: "The alternator diodes on your vehicle may experience a rapid failure. Variability in the failure mode ranges from no output, reduced output, and/or a fully shorted to ground condition." It does not directly state...
  15. Grand Cherokee Wk 2 Alternator - Australia

    Trouble Shooting/Problems/Service
    Do you have any support for this statement? Everything I've seen regarding the recall is silent on the underlying issue, and simply offers that affected units will be changed out. It would be great to see any additional information that you have at hand. Cheers, Steve
