    Oh it ain't bad, ESS is easy to get along with and I don't drive around with my doors open, so Auto-park doesn't bother me. I do enjoy a good Manual tranny though, don't get me wrong.

    Yesterday, with the doors off and seat belt on my dash started showing "Vehicle Not in Park" messages while cruising down the road. I still think these computers and CAN-BUS wiring are getting too invasive in vehicles.

    I joined just to post in this thread LOL! I'm very interested in the JL. While researching I cam across this about this thread about AutoPark and am not happy at all about it. As mentioned, I often inch my vehicles along with the door open.

    Anyway, has anyone tried jumpering the driver's side seatbelt wires so the jeep just always thinks the belt is plugged in?

    That is incredibly dangerous because the SRS system will be under the impression you are always buckled in and the airbags could deploy when your belt isn't fastened under any condition. You are much better off just buckling the belt behind you when you are inching the car along so that in every other driving scenario the SRS system will operate as designed.

    How (or why) in God's name would you open the door driving at highway speeds.

    Or.......who drives around at highway speeds in this day and age without a seat belt.....and then decides they want to open the door.

    At this point almost every manufacturer has vehicles equipped with auto park and the same logic. The Wrangler is just the latest vehicle to implement the safety feature. The complaining is echoed across many automotive forums but it is here to stay. The manufacturers aren't going to risk the liability of rollaways to appease the trailer crowd.

    They forget that the safety hazard IS them driving at highway speeds with no seat belt, attempting to open the door. because that'll end up just wonderful.

    A situation I ran into is having the vehicle in Neutral with a few clicks on the E-brake to create enough tension for wrapping up my synthetic winch line.

    I ended up putting the damn transfer case in neutral and managed to get it to work.

    To hell with this babysitting auto-park.

    I can just make out the ball of my hitch at the bottom center of the screen of the backup camara. That allows me to line it up perfectly every time. Perhaps just get a slightly longer tongue and then you could see yours too.

    How quickly people forget.
    There have been plenty of cases where people have stopped, got out of their cars, went to open a gate or garage door and then been run over by their vehicle - because, they did not put it in park. It happens - obviously enough that they have implemented this.

    I think the last "famous" accident was Anton Yelchin, Chekov in the recent Star Trek movies.
