2014 Climate control

I've had my 2014 Grand for 3 weeks and I'm not too happy with my climate control. I have it set on 60 degrees on the automatic setting. I have to turn the fan down manually or open the windows or it will sweat me out. Anyone else have this problem. Just thought I'd ask here before I take it into the dealership.

Nope, that isn't normal.

I'm having the same problem. THe climate control seems to be all over the place. At 60 dgrees it feels like full heat. I have to go to LO setting and then back up to 63 degrees before it cools off. But then it seems to always return to full heat. It is very hard to regulate. I have a 2014 limited, made in october. If you take it to the dealer, pleaes let me know what happens, as it is certainly happening to me and very frustrating that I cant regulate the heat.

I'm having exactly the same issue. It could very well be due to my lack of familiarity with this system, and I will admit that I've not studied it much. It seems to automatically blow very hot when the outside temperatures are low. I have to go to the LO setting to get relief and then slowly back up again. My 2014 Limited was built in September.

I have a June-built 2014 Overland and the automatic climate control seems to work fine. I typically keep it between 60 and 64 depending how cold it is outside. I can't recall ever manually changing anything. I know for sure that I have never manually changed the fan speed. I just set the temperature and hit the auto button and it is good to go.

Now if you want to gripe with me about how crappy the heated seats are...

I've got the same issue - blazing hot under manual control unless it's on 'Low'. Auto seems to work alright for now. I need to review the Owner's Manual DVD to see if there are any kernels of knowledge on this. I've also got a heated seat issue on the driver side - the bottom gets hot but the back doesn't work. Not bad for the first 250 miles (1 week old). Keep us posted as mine's likely to head to the dealer in the next week or so.

I have a similar issue when the temp is set manually to 70° it will feel like it's on full heat. Without changing anything, it will continue to blow hot air for around 3-5 minutes. After that it starts to behave normally. How much time do you let pass before changing the setting?

For short trips, I use the manual mode otherwise the climate control goes nuts trying to get to my preset temps ASAP. On longer trips, I use auto mode since the system has plenty of time to adjust the temperature and doesn't have to work so extreme.

I too have the "all over the place" climate issue. 70* feels like 90* for five minutes. What are we doing wrong ? It doesn't matter if I have it on auto or manual. This blows! Lol

I haven't paid very close attention, but I can say that when it is cold outside 70F feels very warm. I have to turn the temp much lower to feel cold. I think it may be that, even though I feel hot (sunny, etc), the inside temp of the car is actually lower than the temp I have it set to.

I have the impression that the Auto calibration tries to get to set temp very quickly and the response time of the temperature sensors drives an overshoot. Once equilibrium is reached, it seems to control adequately. I had the opposite complaint with my 2011 Edge where the A/C in summer would take for ever to cool down the cabin. There I had to manually switch to Max A/C. I have not had a chance to try the A/C control on the Jeep.

I keep mine on 72 year round, but when it is cold, it will blow hot air, just the same as if it was set on 90, but once the interior reaches 72, then it backs off and keeps it at 72 degrees. Then in the summer when the interior is hot, that same 72 blows cold air and tries to get the interior to 72 as quick as possible. The air isn't any colder if it is set for 62 or 72, it will just maintain that temperature once it gets to it.

I didn't read anything but the 1st post but that is a problem that is becoming more apparent on the other forum. Hopefully everyone will complain and they will come out with a software update to fix it.
