It might be turned off. Look at the first post for instructions to turn it back on.

You do have to come to a complete stop on the hill, with your foot on the brake. Once you take your foot off the...

Electronic Stability Control. It's standard on all Compasses and Patriots, so you should have it.

In my almost identically equipped Patriot, it's in the center console, to the left of the 12v...

I've got the 130 (RES) in my patriot, the difference appears to be single-disk CD vs 6-disk CD. If it's hooked up, everything is voice command. Try "tutorial".

That's pretty much what I expected. I don't think there is a Mopar 2" receiver for the Patriot, so the expensive one the dealer would install isn't really what I want anyway, and I'll end up with a...

That's the way I'd do it - get plenty of torque on it, drive it a couple hundred miles and check it again. As long as the other 4 studs and nuts are in good shape. A little vibration will pull it...

Newb to New Cars, how much can I do myself without breaking my warranty?

Just bought a 2012 Patriot for my DD, my first brand-new vehicle. I've never before owned a vehicle with any sort of warranty.

I want to install a hitch receiver, mostly for carrying a cargo...

Personally, I don't consider either of these issues to be related to vehicle safety. What I'm concerned with when I'm barreling down the highway at 65mph is whether I'll...

The Patriot is an IIHS "Top Safety Pick", and is built on the same MK platform as the Compass, and (AFAIK) is in the same vehicle class. I would think that the Compass ranking should at least be...

It's for when you move your foot from the brake to the gas pedal to get rolling. Picture yourself headed up the steepest hill you can find. Now, stop. When you go to start again, you're going to find...

With an automatic, I don't think I'd notice it, at least not on-road. In fact, I think it might be pretty useful in an automatic transmission.

You can try the steering wheel dance I posted; if the...

This is on a 2012.

I don't mind cheating with electronics, I just want the electronics to do what I tell them to do, when I tell them to do it. I'd rather they didn't try to guess what I was...

Hill Start Assist

Hill Start Assist has been driving me mad!

HSA holds the brakes on for about 3 seconds if you're on a hill and come to a complete stop. For automatic transmissions, it engages on an 8% slope; for...

Just drove my custom-built 'riot off the lot today, and lemme tell you what: I'm loving it!

I like the theory of CVT, but I went with the manual transaxle, FD1, and the only "bells and whistles" I...

That front bumper sure looks like it wants a winch. I think a 4,000lb model would be just about perfect for the 'riot.

Basically, the Liberty, like...

I reversed it. I used a piece of steel wire to snake a washer and bolt inside the frame. You can weld an arm to the top of the bolt to prevent it from turning inside the frame, or tack-weld the bolt...
