So just did a long road trip. 15 hours. Mine will work for about 15 to 40 minutes after key up. And will stop working until next key cycle. the annoying part is i still get the notifications for favorite artist on air, but you don't know what station.
I don’t know FCAs strategy here but absolutely if ESC throws a code then start stop will fall to function. One of the key things for start stop is you have to know 100% that you are stopped before the engine can turn off. So say a wheel speed sensor is going bad. And you can’t see wheel ticks or...

For me if you can see pavement then 4HA. If you can’t and the road is covered in snow then 4H it is.
That being said it’s possible the road is iced over and you will want 4H.
don’t forget a good set of winter tires is also very valuable.
There are tools on this site to help you calculate the invoice pricing. I don't know it off the top of my head but 9k off of 54k sounds about right from what i recall. So to be honest that might be rock bottom pricing all ready.
The only way to get more is if the dealer at the end of the...
Ha my family too. My uncle was GM Powertrain for many many years. My dad because he got the GM Employee Discount through his brother always bought GM vehicles end of story. I told him a few years ago, you just go to the dealer and say, "I'm not paying a penny above employee pricing" or 5%...
me too. Helps that i moved from a 10 minute 7 mile commute to a 30 minute 10 miles commute. and in the afternoon it's 45 minutes for 7 miles. When you live in the city and never get over 40 mph why do you want to own a manual to drive in bumper to bumper traffic?
My big reason is the...
It always depends on your needs. I moved across the country 3.5 years ago and left my 95 Trans Am in my father in laws storage shed. Only had room for 2 cars, my wife has a fuel efficient vehicle, 37+ mpg 4 door mini cooper, and i drive the utility 2018 JLUS. JL goes to ski trips, and we try...
So BrakeLockDiffeerential, it’s job is if a wheel is slipping is to lock that wheel to transfer torque to the other wheel that has traction
If you are not in 4WD then it’s not possible to have torque to transfer to the other wheel.
BLD will be active in all 4WD modes.
there are of course...
So brake lock differential doesn’t technically kill power to manage slip. BLD’s job is to transfer Torque from the wheel in slip to the wheel with traction. So brake torque is applied via the ABS/ESC module to the wheel in slip. So this feature works most obviously when you are on split mu...
I ran cables by removing the passenger grab handle. Another user simply pushed the wires through the trim without removal. You can see our discussion here:
I don’t really do any serious off-roading so sway bar disconnects and lockers aren’t needed. I’ll see some ruts and need the Clarence when I visit Death Valley this year. But most of the time any skilled driver can do what I’m looking for.
I have logged about 25 hours in 4H-Auto on the Sahara...
