I guess it could use a daytime cutoff loop in it's logic/code.

It's not washer fluid. It's not the RF.

The water from the water hose he washing the Jeep with "tricks" the sensor in the actual door handle into thinking a hand is touching it.


As for a "benefit", I'm not sure I understand the question.

So why is it only when the key FOB is in your pocket while spraying does the vehicle think you are touching the handle ? .... unless thats something else changed in 2014... Think about it, has to be more to it than simply water touching the inside of the handle, otherwise every time it rains the lights would flash and doors unlock

I agree. The reason I asked if it was a 'benefit' was it designed to possibly be a touch alertness type reaction (not a human hand, but any object), but I never read anything about that.

Also yes if I'm in the city and a guy comes up to the car with a squeegee to clean the windshield I don't want the doors unlocking

Its your proximity to the non running vehicle, it assumes you intend to drive it do it gives you lighting.

True, but the point was that Heath said there was no RF involved, but there is.

I've either turned my approach lights off or don't have the feature. I just have the light flash for unlocking, whether the doors are locked or not.

"The smart key allows the driver to keep the key fob in their pocket when unlocking, locking and starting the vehicle. The key is identified via one of several antennas in the car's bodywork and a radio pulse generator in the key housing. Depending on the system, the vehicle is automatically unlocked when a button or sensor on the door handle or trunk release is pressed."

Really dumb question. How the heck do you open the storage bin under the driver's seat? I can't find a latch or anything anywhere.

Its not a storage bin technically, there is no latch. If you have a fully optioned vehicle the area is full of modules.

Motor your seat all the way forward. Lift under the rear edge of the cover and it should "pop" right up. It is not a place you want to store anything you need to get at frequently or in a hurry, but some find it a useful hide away.

My BMW with comfort access would do this as well. The car has proximity sensors telling it where the key is. If the key is close to the car (5-10 ft) and you grab the door handle, it'll unlock or lock, depending on what you're trying to do. It very well might do it with rain, but the key has to be close to the car. I always left the keys in the garage when I washed my car in the driveway to prevent this.

The BMW would only start with the key inside the car and would warn you if the key left the car when it was running. It knew when it was in the trunk because then the trunk doesn't latch to prevent you from locking the keys in there.

That feature does not work on the 2014.

How to reset "Oil Change Due" message

Found this on another Jeep site and tried it on my ride that was giving message much before the due mileage.

"Turn the ignition switch to ON (do not start) and fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 10 seconds and then turn the ignition switch to OFF, then start the Jeep. The message should be cleared."
