Easter Eggs
 
Post up those Easter Egg touches that Jeep claims you will find as you own the vehicle. I can continually edit the first post so that there is one easy to see list for all right at the top... I will even give you the credit. Alright, let's start:


Headlights: You will see a Jeep emblem molded into the headlight. Jeep states this in the sales brochure and I think that is where they talk about the little touches - Luckrider


Sun Visors: When you unclip them (to swing towards the window) they also slide out to get into position where you need them so that light isn't coming between the door and visor. - Luckrider

Rear Window Switches: With the lights on, they get lit up. If you lock the rear windows so that the rear passengers can't operate them, the light goes out.

Center Console: There is a little cubby in the lid. It looks like it would be a great place to hide papers or something like a small map (or maybe some hidden emergency cash). The actual purpose is to house a small package of tissues - Luckrider (Thanks to Justal13 for the exact use).

Front Windows: You can roll them down with the remote. Just unlock the Jeep, let go of the button, and them immediately push the button and hold. It takes about 2 seconds before they start going down, and then they go until you release the button (not everyone knows this). - Luckrider

Rear Glass Latch: Just because you don't have the fancy auto glass and hatch doesn't mean you can't unlock just the hatch. If you take the remote apart and click (2x) the lower left button with the black part that is normally used to contact one of the other buttons, the latch will pop and you can open it without unlocking the Jeep. That would be useful when dropping stuff off... now if only you could find the rubber skin to make it work without taking the remote apart (I am sure you can actually do that). Found that out while waiting in the Jeep bored playing with everything I could.-Luckrider

Super Sexy Electric Speedo: If you have the 430N (might work with the other nav radio), if you touch the box that displays your speed (when on map) it will bring up another screen that shows an odometer, speedometer on the left, average moving speed, average speed (includes stopped), and fastest speed driven. - Luckrider

Massive Hidden Cargo Bin: There is a huge cargo compartment under the driver's seat. Same size as the battery compartment under the passenger side, and the lid even has instruction for changing the battery (which isn't in that compartment). - Luckrider

Spare Cover Flap Hook: There is a sweet hook in the lid for the spare tire that can be used to hold it up when you need to get stuff in the cargo area there, or for getting the spare out. You guys know there are 2 cargo bins there right? - Luckrider

Rewind the Radio: On the 430N while listening to the radio... Hit The rewind button ie '<<'. You have to hit the button marked replay before this will work though. - Celly

Headrest Adjustments: That headrest does more than just go up and down, you know. It has the ability to tilt forward and back too. - plynn7

Bump... nobody has anything to add to this?

Anyway, I found these two when vacuuming the Jeep the other day.

1. There is a huge cargo compartment under the driver's seat. Same size as the battery compartment under the passenger side, and the lid even has instruction for changing the battery (which isn't in that compartment).

2. There is a sweet hook in the lid for the spare tire that can be used to hold it up when you need to get stuff in the cargo area there, or for getting the spare out. You guys know there are 2 cargo bins there right?

Editing the first post to include this stuff.

I found that compartment when dismantling the car looking for the battery...Mine has some kind of electronic module in there, whats that for?

LuckRider 07-01-2011 03:44 PM

Hmmm... didn't know the compartment was used for anything. Do you have the QL? According to the pic below, it looks like a control module for it:

No QL, I went to get a closer look at it. Has two wire bundles connected and is about the size of a hard drive, although much lighter than one. I took the numbers off it. Best i could find is it is the transfer case control module 56029423AE in the parts manual. The module I have says P56029423AH.

I have that module under the driver's seat in my Laredo X. Non-QL.

Not sure if this is 'Easter Egg' level feature.. But you can rewind the radio -- ie. It has Tivoesque features. I can't find this mentioned anywhere...

LuckRider 07-02-2011 08:53 AM

Please... do describe how to make that work and I will put that in there. I am putting in things that are easter eggs, or just features that people might not know about.

Added. I will have to try that when I get a chance :thumbsup:

Isn't that only for Sirius or for regular radio as well?

Pressing that button just tunes to the previous channel

MWB14 07-02-2011 06:54 PM

On Sirius I think it will go back 1 song, I don't know if that works on regular radio, I haven't tried that.

I forgot a step, there is a button that says 'Replay' -- once you click that you'll get the forward / rewind features.

Edit: yes, this only works on sat. Not on radio... Sorry :(

The headrest in the Overland tilts forward. Not sure if other models do the same.
