It works on 2013's as well. I just took an old computer keyboard and removed the contact from the back of one of the keys. Opened up the key fob and put the round contact in place, closed it up, and it works.

This is probably not an Easter Egg, but after 10000 miles I just realized if you repeatedly push the preset button on the radio (in Sat mode) it will cycle through about 4 options. Station, Artist, Song, and something else.
Maybe everyone already knew this except me?

Hadn't noticed that ^^ but will look for it. Something I did discover by accident on the display when playing music, if you press the "i" soft key a second time the display will show the current location map and the information about the music shifts to the upper left box. This occurred after the update discs were installed so it might have been part of the update.

a couple things (not sure about Easter Egg worthy) I found out...if a buld goes out, ie: turn signal, tail light, head light, etc, the information will display exactly which light and what corner. The other is that the V8 exhaust will bolt right up to the V6 cat, and uses the same hangers all the way back. You would have to replace the lower rear bumper valance for the duel outlet...the Magnaflo looks killer on the wife's V6

100% not an Easter Egg.

A "cool" or useful feature that is otherwise obvious and blatant is not an Easter Egg. An Easter Egg is an intentionally "hidden" feature. Like the Jeep grille in the headlights, most people won't notice it.

Definitely did not know this though!

It has already been determined in previous posts that it does not work on 2012's.

Sent from my underground lair.

Nothing stupid about it! - Good find.

The lid hanger is truly a good find. Unfortunately where I live we have pump attendants and can't do self service at all gas stations. Now each time I teach the attendant to hang lid cap.

In sometime I will have all of them up the curve on this.

Great thread planning on modifying my fob now. Wish it would roll down the windows but opening the rear window is a great help when you're hands are full. If I find anything new I'll make sure to post it. trust me I'll be looking.

Hi my GC 2013 did not automatically lock all doors once it reached 15 miles. Found this tweak for wrangler which worked on my ride.

1. Insert key and turn to ON mode (1 click only) & off mode simultaneously 5 times. Do not switch on the car. End the key at ON position
2. Quickly press the unlock button on driver's door twice.

Repeat steps to disengage auto lock.

I tried tweabto have doors locked when the gear is shifted to D and unlock when on P. Didn't work on my car.

This is not an Easter bunny but will help someone.

Cheers
