  1. Modification needed if installing Genesis dual battery system in 4xe

    This has me wondering why the 4xe comes with a standard battery. I would think a deep cycle battery is a better fit since there is no starter motor.
  2. Modification needed if installing Genesis dual battery system in 4xe

    Is there any way to change the accessory timeout? I think Brandon in one of his videos managed to eliminate it by disconnecting the driver's door wiring harness. Although I'm not sure why that worked.
  3. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    Ah, I thought that said Traction Control Module, Transmission Control Module makes sense now, especially given how it happened. It's no fun having your ECM disabled on an Atlanta highway.

    Thanks, I just want to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else!
  5. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    Got back from the dealer for codes. They seemed apathetic about looking at it if it wasn't doing it regularly or could be reproduced. These are in the order given to me by the service department's printout. I don't know if they are all related or in chronologic order. PTCM U0011-00...
  6. Looking for advice

    On the hilly terrain, you may get some hybrid operation and regen on the way down if you aren't going too fast. It depends on incline, speed and wind. Coming back with no e-range the ICE may also cut out on the down side of the hills.
  7. Looking for advice

    Hybrid mode will never do you wrong. Electric mode is good if you know you do not need any ICE by the time you can charge again and you want to minimize ICE use. They are just weighted versions of the same thing. E-save could cost some efficiency but helps you get to a trail with 94/95%...
  8. Confirmed: M220/210 Wide Axles are standard on the Sahara 4XE

    Goodness, the Sahara 4xe feels like a tank that could pull a house down in 4L. But that's likely the electric motor's torque.
  9. Will Rubicon 4XE have the range I need for highway commute?

    While smaller mountains, I spent the past two weeks driving around the Appalachian mountains. I picked up a surprising number of electric miles and extra e-range on the downhill portions. Coming down the Smokey Mountains on Newfound Gap road, I picked up an additional 5 miles of range along...
  10. Jeep Wrangler 4xe 70-MPH Electric-Only Range Test

    I've been able to hit around 34 - 36 miles. This takes not going over 45 MPH, no climate control, and gentle acceleration.
  11. Confirmed: M220/210 Wide Axles are standard on the Sahara 4XE

    What is different with the transfer case?
  12. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    I kept it off the rest of the way through Atlanta and then started again once I was out of the city. If things started getting dicey I just canceled out until it was good to resume again.
  13. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    Very well could be. I think what is making me think it was the cause was I had double tapped the throttle. I punched it once thinking ACC would release the brake. It started braking again and I gave it a harder push. At which point ACC had shut off and then the death limp mode kicked in while...
  14. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    I wasn't aware you had that issue. Was the tire pressure low or was it an anomaly? I think mine was likely going from regenerative brake to heavy throttle in a short amount of time or at the same time. Postings I've seen so far seem to indicate it's a mystery to the service departments. As...
  15. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    Thanks for the offer, I did get it sorted out! Here are the details I was southbound on I85 with the Jeep fully loaded. I had Adaptive Cruise Control on and was going around 65 MPH at the time. Distance was set to max follow. A slow moving car crossed lanes in front of me a ways up. At the...
  16. 4xe shut down on highway with charge error - think I know what causes it now.

    I've seen many posts on this and it's very dangerous. Basically you are driving on a crowded highway and the throttle dies and the dash lights up like a Christmas tree. Eventually the auto park kicks in. This whole limp mode the jeep has SUCKS and is going to get someone KILLED. Happened to...
  17. Wheels click on sharp/slow turns

    I think it's got to be a break in issue. Someone mentioned in another thread about retorquing all the suspension components. I've been hammering away at it on the mountain roads the past few days.
  18. Wheels click on sharp/slow turns

    It started getting way worse. Luckily I got it in today. The steering feels much tighter. I didn't realize it was loose. I figured I was imagining it being tighter until I read your post over again. Crazy this seems to happen to so may people. Don't know if it's a break in issue or...
  19. Transmission Gear - Electric vs. Hybrid

    I had only gone up to about 45/50 when I was watching. I haven't been on the highway except for when I picked it up in April. I'll be on a long road trip this Sunday.
  20. Wheels click on sharp/slow turns

    Was it a click-click sound as you neared a sharp 45 degree turn? Such as a parking space. Is this something that can be diy checked and is it serious? I'm going out on a road trip next week.
