Jerry try open the locks when you are close them move back to where it would not work before and see if the lock works. I had this happen to me on my 06.It was the skim (sp) module.had to replace it and both keys

Honestly I'm thinking it's a programming thing. I think it's the FOB as I have had a few light issues with it. I replaced the battery with a new one but the new one seems weak. It doesn't have a great range to unlock the doors or open the tailgate. I have to be pretty darn close. So I will buy a new battery again and check it out. It's winter here and I don't have garage space to work on the Jeep. I will be doing full suspension work come spring time and it warms up. At that time I'll check it out more. The Jeep runs fine and as I mentioned earlier.....no tripped codes except for the park assist.
That park assist DTC could be indicative of a short in one of your park assist sensors, or, a bad park assist sensor - which could, in theory, be contributing to your remote start issue. I know from experience that our park assist sensors can be prone to shorting out; I had to replace one of mine a couple of years ago that kept shorting out. This could very easily have a ripple effect within your electrical system, IE blowing fuses, etc.

I was able to get this gadget to work and I disable my tpms..It is a cheaper alternative and it works great..
can confirm. I used Jscan and and android OBDII adapter to turn my TPMS off about a year and half ago, no issues since. Jscan gives access to lots of stuff, more than I have had time to play around with. I did turn on reverse side mirrors though, it's a nice feature.

What does reverse side mirrors do exactly @heffercow?

when you shift into reverse, it angles the side view mirrors down so you can see the rear tires. makes it a little easier to maneuver into tight spots instead of having to stick my greasy forehead against the window. THen when you shift out of reverse they return back to the original setting. I think this only works if your jeep has the positions setting for different drivers though (the 1 and 2 buttons on the door).

I'm guessing here - but this sounds like a "Limited" trim package option to me.

my jeep has the 2 position for different drivers. I couldn't locate that setting in the module. What exactly is it?

yes it is tied to the memory seats, which I believe was only available on the limited. Still let me change tire size and other stuff though so even the non limited owners can find good stuff. I have barely looked at all the stuff it offers.

It's not in modules, it's actually under the adaptation tab.

go to adaptation scroll to the bottom where it says vehicle user settings then scroll to the bottom again and it should say tilt mirrors in reverse. select it and hit on from the drop-down menu.

It's weird because all of the other settings on this page are accessible through the jeep user interface on the dash, but this one isn't. anyways when you turn it on it tilts the side view mirrors down when you put it in reverse, then when you shift out of reverse it returns back to normal. It is nice to be able to see the tires when I am backing into the garage because I try to park more to one side than the other and there is crap all along that wall.

Ok cool, I'll check that out..I had that feature on a Maxima once and I really liked it. So if I can do the same to the jeep that will be great..

no problem! Like i said the app does a ton. I bought it specifically to change my tire size so my speedo and odometer were more accurate, all the other stuff has been a bonus!

Like I said in the original post that started this thread;

The Appcar-DiagFCA OBD-II Software gives you access to pretty much all of the options contained within the FCA/OBD-II software;

It really is well worth the investment.

Thanks for the links,

I was able to turn off my TPMS with a Bluetooth ELM327. For tire size I get a warning that it my cause issues and confirm with the software developer. I'm waiting for a response to my email.
