Also FYI gents, if you don't have remote start but DO HAVE the receptacle shown above, the PTS button is dealer cost of $13 and works for 75% of CDJ vehicles.

That does NOT charge the battery in your key fob. Nothing does as a matter of fact, when it dies you replace the battery.

Also, the button is only removable on Chryslers a with a WIN module (2011-2013 wk2s for example). The newer KIN module (2014+ wk2s) do NOT have a removable button.

That's odd. I worked at a CDJ dealer for a year and the Chrysler rep taught me that......

This week I've had my JGC (13' Overland) in the mountains for the first time. We are in Mammoth Lakes, Ca and while the snow is lousy, it's cold in the AM and PM. I've used my remote start feature and the seat heaters and steering wheel heater are both on when I get in the car. Either I'm mistaken or these two heat comfort items must be activated by the remote start if the temp is cold enough.

Also spent a bit of time in a new Chevy Tahoe and the comparison between in the overall ride quality was clearly noted by my wife and grown kids. The Chevy has some noticeable shakes, shimmies and vibrations. My jeep is like buttah.

However, I did not know the fob is charged while in the ignition. Have a source for that? My understanding is that the battery is not rechargeable.

Sorry the "wot" is old habit. We all know you can remove the start/stop button, but I don't believe the battery charges in the remote, it's a 2032 battery I believe, I have replaced it a couple of times now.

I believe its when the outside temp is 40 or below, the heated seat and steering wheel is automatically activated. Not a bad feature.

Looking forward to the purchase next year

Might not be an egg. I own an 11' summit and tried lowering the suspension to entry/ exit while moving at 20mph. I quickly pressed the button and it said was not available or whatever it says, but then I pressed and held the button down for a few seconds and released. It then said entry/ exit mode all while continuing at 20mph. I slowed down to 5 or whatever the minimum speed is to begin to lower approximately 1-2 minutes after I held the button and the jeep began to lower as I came to a stop in my driveway.
It was like it delayed the lowering height until the speed was reduced. Is this an Easter egg or should I have searched the forum more. Just FYI.

Nope, the fob batteries are non-rechargable # CR2032. I always keep a spare in the glovebox because these "active" (always on & broadcasting) fobs go through batteries faster than the old-style "passive" (have to press a button) fobs. Batteries typically last a year or so. I replace the batteries in all my wifes and my fobs every spring when I do my home smoke-detector batteries as a reminder. The batteries are inexpensive (less than $1 each), I buy multi-packs from Amazon (Energizer or Duracell) and they have a long shelf-life. When the batteries start getting low, the door handle and start push-buttons start "acting up" requiring multiple pushes to work.

I was under the impression that these new fobs use passive RFID technology to allow the "always on & broadcasting" features to work. This passive tech means that the key fob isn't using its battery power to signal to the vehicle, but instead the vehicle is sending a signal out and that energizes the key fob, allowing the fob to authorize itself (or not, if matched incorrectly.) I haven't: had my '14 long enough to verify how the fob batteries last though, I guess we'll see. One additional comment about purchasing coin cells on Amazon, I've heard many a vendor will sell outdated batteries and they just dont last as long in devices as they should. I can attest to this though, I've purchased a few different types of coin cells batteries from a few different suppliers and most of then just don't seem to last as long as other batteries purchased from more reputable places.

When I got my '11WK2X I read the owners manual on CD, and I believe it was in there that the fob recharge instructions may have been stated; not 100% sure though. Anyways, I did try to recharge my low fob battery that way on a few occasions to give it plenty of a chance and it did not work. Just had to buy a new battery.

I was told by my dealer(not sure if it is accurate) if the battery in the fob is dead you can still get enough juice to start the car by placing it directly over the PTS button. This should get the car started until you can replace the battery.

That is correct, and is mentioned in the owner's manual. The specific part that needs to be close to the PTS button is the head of the removable key, right where the key ring attaches. I believe this will start the vheicle even if the battery in the FOB is completely dead.

this should NOT ever be needed... if you are rebooting it because you are having issues like the unit is blacking out, freezing up, etc you need to have your radio replaced. The reboot is for the engineering mode you discovered (which btw - be VERY VERY cautious in there! You can really mess it up! lol) - so if changes are made - the radio would need to be rebooted.
