Why so many functions delay? '12 KK Limited

It seems many functions have built-in delays. For example, delayed start when turning the key; if a/c is selected when engine is started fan delays sometimes 10 seconds and ducts don't switch to upper level vents for maybe 20 additional seconds. Upon exiting vehicle and hitting the lock button there is sometimes a 5 second delay before the doors actually lock. I even read another thread where rear wipers would not turn off without a delay. Are others experiencing this or is my KK just smarter than me?

mine start and locks fine ... but I have noticed those built in delays. Obviously the electronic checks of the vehicle are in play though. How they are processed when compared to other vehicles I have no clue. But it is what it is. The throttle is sloggy too, but its completely dependent on electronic processing and as mentioned , the liberty is a bit on the slow side on processing power. Makes one wonder if we can upgrade the computer and pull additional responsiveness out of the vehicle.

Some sort of "power wire".... I like the way you're thinking.

The delays are there for a reason. It has nothing to do with the processing power of the ECU... Although I have no idea what you are talking about when you say it takes 5 seconds to lock or unlock and I've never had the vents take more than 5-8 seconds to open either. Although I think the vents are vacuum actuated so it takes a few seconds to build up enough suction to actually open or close them and that could depend on other things that also use the vac system such as the EGR system

Mine has all those delays...horn, locks, vents.
Hate it.
Could it be that the vents are servo driven and have to wait their turn for power allocation .

The horn is the one that doesn't make any sense
