This guide has been prepared to help you
get quickly acquainted with your new Jeep
Brand Vehicle and to provide a convenient
reference source for common questions.
However, it is not a substitute for your
Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions,
maintenance procedures and important
safety messages, please consult your
Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Uconnect
Manuals and other Warning Labels in
your vehicle.
If you are the first registered retail owner of your vehicle, you
may obtain a complimentary printed copy of the Owner’s
Manual, Navigation/Uconnect Manuals or Warranty Booklet by
calling 1-877-426-5337 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada) or
by contacting your dealer.
The driver’s primary
responsibility is the safe
operation of the vehicle.
Driving while distracted
can result in loss of
vehicle control, resulting
in a collision and personal
injury. FCA US LLC
strongly recommends that
the driver use extreme
caution when using any
device or feature that may
take their attention off
the road. Use of any
electrical devices, such
as cellular telephones,
computers, portable
radios, vehicle navigation
or other devices, by the
driver while the vehicle is
moving is dangerous and
could lead to a serious
collision. Texting while
driving is also dangerous
and should never be done
while the vehicle is
moving. If you find
yourself unable to devote
your full attention to
vehicle operation, pull off
the road to a safe location
and stop your vehicle.
Some states or provinces
prohibit the use of cellular
telephones or texting
while driving. It is always
the driver’s responsibility
to comply with all
local laws.
Not all features shown in this
guide may apply to your vehicle. For
additional information on accessories
to help personalize your vehicle, visit
www.mopar.com (U.S.), www.mopar.ca
(Canada) or your local Jeep brand dealer.
D r iv in g an d A l cohol :
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions. Your
driving ability can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below
the legal minimum. If you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated
non-drinking driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
Im por ta n t:
WARNING:
This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important features of
your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/
Uconnect Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and Roadside
Assistance (new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside Assistance
(new vehicles purchased in Canada) in electronic format. We hope you
find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be purchased by visiting
www.techauthority.com.
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been
drinking. Never drink and then drive.

INTRODUCTION/WELCOME
WELCOME FROM FCA US LLC
Congratulations on selecting your new FCA US LLC (“FCA US”) vehicle. Be assured
that it represents precision workmanship, distinctive styling, and high quality - all
essentials that are traditional to our vehicles.
Your new FCA US vehicle has characteristics to enhance the driver's control under
some driving conditions. These are to assist the driver and are never a substitute for
attentive driving. They can never take the driver's place. Always drive carefully.
Your new vehicle has many features for the comfort and convenience of you and your
passengers. Some of these should not be used when driving because they take your
eyes from the road or your attention from driving. Never text while driving or take your
eyes more than momentarily off the road.
This guide illustrates and describes the operation of features and equipment that are
either standard or optional on this vehicle. This guide may also include a description
of features and equipment that are no longer available or were not ordered on this
vehicle. Please disregard any features and equipment described in this guide that are
not available on this vehicle. FCA US reserves the right to make changes in design
and specifications and/or make additions to or improvements to its products without
imposing any obligation upon itself to install them on products previously manufactured.
This User Guide has been prepared to help you quickly become acquainted with the
important features of your vehicle. It contains most things you will need to operate
and maintain the vehicle, including emergency information.
The DVD includes a computer application containing detailed owner's information
which can be viewed on a personal computer or MAC computer. The multimedia DVD
also includes videos which can be played on any standard DVD player (Uconnect
Touchscreen Radios if equipped with DVD player capabilities). Additional DVD
operational information is located on the back of the DVD sleeve.
For complete owner information, refer to your Owner's Manual on the DVD in the owner’s
kit provided at the time of new vehicle purchase. For your convenience, the information
contained on the DVD may also be printed and saved for future reference.
FCA US is committed to protecting our environment and natural resources. By
converting from paper to electronic delivery for the majority of the user information
for your vehicle, together we greatly reduce the demand for tree-based products and
lessen the stress on our environment.
This is a specialized utility vehicle designed for both on-road and off-road use. It can
go places and perform tasks for which conventional two-wheel drive enclosed
vehicles were not intended. It handles and maneuvers differently from many
passenger cars both on-road and off-road, so take time to become familiar with your
vehicle.

10
GETTING STARTED
REMOTE START
• Push the REMOTE START button
on the Key Fob twice within five seconds.
Pushing the REMOTE START button a third time shuts the engine off.
• To drive the vehicle, push the UNLOCK button, insert the key in the ignition and
turn to the ON/RUN position.
• With Remote Start, the engine will only run for 15 minutes (timeout) unless the
ignition key is placed in the ON/RUN position.
• The vehicle must be started with the key after two consecutive timeouts.
WARNING!
• Do not start or run an engine in a closed garage or confined area. Exhaust gas
contains Carbon Monoxide (CO) which is odorless and colorless. Carbon
Monoxide is poisonous and can cause you or others to be severely injured or
killed when inhaled.
• Keep Key Fob transmitters away from children. Operation of the Remote Start
System, windows, door locks or other controls could cause you and others to be
severely injured or killed.
VEHICLE SECURITY ALARM
The Vehicle Security Alarm monitors the vehicle doors for unauthorized entry and the
ignition for unauthorized operation. While the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed,
interior switches for door locks and decklid release are disabled. If something triggers
the alarm, the Vehicle Security Alarm will provide the following audible and visible
signals: the horn will pulse, the park lamps and/or turn signals will flash, and the
Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash.
To Arm The System:
Lock the door using either the power door lock switch (one door must be open) or the
LOCK button on the Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) transmitter (doors can be open or
closed), and close all doors.
The Vehicle Security Light in the instrument cluster will flash for 16 seconds. This
shows that the Vehicle Security Alarm is arming. During this period, if a door is
opened, the ignition is cycled to ON/RUN, or the power door locks are unlocked in any
manner, the Vehicle Security Alarm will automatically disarm.
NOTE:
• The Vehicle Security Alarm will not arm if you lock the doors with the manual door
lock plungers.
• Once armed, the Vehicle Security Alarm disables the unlock switch on the driver
door trim panel and passenger door trim panel.
11
GETTING STARTED
To Disarm The System:
Push the Key Fob UNLOCK button or cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position.
The Vehicle Security Alarm is designed to protect your vehicle. However, you can
create conditions where the Vehicle Security Alarm will give you a false alarm. If one
of the previously described arming sequences has occurred, the Vehicle Security
Alarm will arm regardless of whether you are in the vehicle or not. If you remain in the
vehicle and open a door, the alarm will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm.
If the Vehicle Security Alarm is armed and the battery becomes disconnected, the
Vehicle Security Alarm will remain armed when the battery is reconnected. The
exterior lights will flash, and the horn will sound. If this occurs, disarm the Vehicle
Security Alarm.
SEAT BELT SYSTEMS
Lap/Shoulder Belts
• All seating positions in your vehicle are equipped with lap/shoulder belts.
• Be sure everyone in your vehicle is in a seat and using a seat belt properly.
• Position the lap belt so that it is snug and lies low across your hips, below your
abdomen. To remove slack in the lap belt portion, pull up on the shoulder belt. To
loosen the lap belt if it is too tight, tilt the latch plate and pull on the lap belt. A
snug seat belt reduces the risk of sliding under the seat belt in a collision.
• Position the shoulder belt across the shoulder and chest with minimal, if any slack
so that it is comfortable and not resting on your neck. The retractor will withdraw
any slack in the shoulder belt.
Seat Belt Pretensioner
• The front seat belt system is equipped with pretensioning devices that are
designed to remove slack from the seat belt in the event of a collision.
• A deployed pretensioner or a deployed air bag must be replaced immediately.
12
GETTING STARTED
WARNING!
• In a collision, you and your passengers can suffer much greater injuries if you
are not properly buckled up. You can strike the interior of your vehicle or other
passengers, or you can be thrown out of the vehicle. Always be sure you and
others in your vehicle are buckled up properly.
• A shoulder belt placed behind you will not protect you from injury during a
collision. You are more likely to hit your head in a collision if you do not wear
your shoulder belt. The lap and shoulder belt are meant to be used together.
• A seat belt that is too loose will not protect you properly. In a sudden stop, you
could move too far forward, increasing the possibility of injury. Wear your seat
belt snugly.
• A frayed or torn seat belt could rip apart in a collision and leave you with no
protection. Inspect the seat belt system periodically, checking for cuts, frays,
or loose parts. Damaged parts must be replaced immediately. Do not disassemble or modify the system. Seat belt assemblies must be replaced after a
collision.
SUPPLEMENTAL RESTRAINT SYSTEM (SRS) — AIR
BAGS
Air Bag System Components
Your vehicle may be equipped with the following air bag system components:
• Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC)
• Air Bag Warning Light
• Steering Wheel and Column
• Instrument Panel
• Knee Impact Bolsters
• Advanced Front Air Bags
• Supplemental Side Air Bags
• Front and Side Impact Sensors
• Seat Belt Pretensioners
• Seat Belt Buckle Switch
• Seat Track Position Sensors
13
GETTING STARTED
Advanced Front Air Bags
• This vehicle has Advanced Front Air Bags for both the driver and front passenger
as a supplement to the seat belt restraint systems. The Advanced Front Air Bags
will not deploy in every type of collision.
• Advanced Front Air Bags are designed to provide additional protection by
supplementing the seat belts. Advanced Front Air Bags are not expected to reduce
the risk of injury in rear, side, or rollover collisions.
• The Advanced Front Air Bags will not deploy in all frontal collisions, including
some that may produce substantial vehicle damage — for example, some pole
collisions, truck underrides, and angle offset collisions.
• On the other hand, depending on the type and location of impact, Advanced Front
Air Bags may deploy in crashes with little vehicle front-end damage but that
produce a severe initial deceleration.
• Because air bag sensors measure vehicle deceleration over time, vehicle speed
and damage by themselves are not good indicators of whether or not an air bag
should have deployed.
• Seat belts are necessary for your protection in all collisions, and also are needed
to help keep you in position, away from an inflating air bag.
• After any collision, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer immediately.
• Do not drive your vehicle after the air bags have deployed. If you are involved in
another collision, the air bags will not be in place to protect you.
• If it is necessary to modify the air bag system for persons with disabilities, contact
your authorized dealer.
• Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD for further details regarding the
Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
WARNING!
• Relying on the air bags alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision.
The air bags work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some
collisions, the air bags won't deploy at all. Always wear your seat belts even
though you have air bags.
• Being too close to the steering wheel or instrument panel during Advanced
Front Air Bag deployment could cause serious injury, including death. Air bags
need room to inflate. Sit back, comfortably extending your arms to reach the
steering wheel or instrument panel.
• No objects should be placed over or near the air bag on the instrument panel
or steering wheel because any such objects could cause harm if the vehicle is
in a collision severe enough to cause the air bag to inflate.
14
GETTING STARTED
Supplemental Side Air Bags
• This vehicle is equipped with Supplemental Seat-Mounted Side Air Bags (SABs)
that are located in the outboard side of the front seats. The SABs are marked with
a SRS AIRBAG or AIRBAG label sewn into the outboard side of the seats.
• SABs are designed to activate in certain side impacts. The Occupant Restraint
Controller (“ORC”) determines whether the deployment of the SAB in a particular
impact event is appropriate, based on the severity and type of collision. Vehicle
damage by itself is not a good indicator of whether or not SABs should have
deployed.
WARNING!
• SABs need room to inflate. Do not lean against the door or window. Sit upright
in the center of the seat.
• Being too close to the SABs during deployment could cause you to be severely
injured or killed.
• Relying on the SABs alone could lead to more severe injuries in a collision. The
SABs work with your seat belt to restrain you properly. In some collisions, SABs
won’t deploy at all. Always wear your seat belt even though you have SABs.
• Do not use accessory seat covers or place objects between you and the SABs;
the performance could be adversely affected and/or objects could be pushed
into you, causing serious injury.
Enhanced Accident Response System
In the event of an impact, if the communication network remains intact, and the
power remains intact, depending on the nature of the event, the ORC will determine
whether to have the Enhanced Accident Response System perform the following
functions:
• Cut off fuel to the engine.
• Flash hazard lights as long as the battery has power or until the hazard light button
is pushed. The hazard lights can be deactivated by pushing the hazard light
button.
• Turn on the interior lights, which remain on as long as the battery has power.
• Unlock the power door locks.
Enhanced Accident Response System Reset Procedure
In order to reset the Enhanced Accident Response System functions after an event,
the ignition switch must be changed from ignition START or ON/RUN to ignition OFF.
Carefully check the vehicle for fuel leaks in the engine compartment and on the
ground near the engine compartment and fuel tank before resetting the system and
starting the engine.
15
GETTING STARTED
Air Bag Warning Light
• The air bags must be ready to inflate for your protection in a collision. The
Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) monitors the internal circuits and interconnecting wiring associated with air bag system electrical components.
• The ORC monitors the readiness of the electronic parts of the air bag system
whenever the ignition switch is in the START or ON/RUN position. If the ignition
switch is in the OFF position or in the ACC position, the air bag system is not on
and the air bags will not inflate.
• The ORC turns on the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel for
approximately four to eight seconds for a self-check when the ignition switch is
first turned to the ON/RUN position. After the self-check, the Air Bag Warning
Light will turn off. If the ORC detects a malfunction in any part of the system, it
turns on the Air Bag Warning Light, either momentarily or continuously. A single
chime will sound to alert you if the light comes on again after initial startup.
• If the Air Bag Warning Light in the instrument panel is not on during the four to
eight seconds when the ignition switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position,
stays on, or turns on while driving, have the vehicle serviced by an authorized
service center immediately.
NOTE:
If the speedometer, tachometer, or any engine related gauges are not working, the
Occupant Restraint Controller (ORC) may also be disabled. In this condition the air
bags may not be ready to inflate for your protection. Have an authorized dealer
service the air bag system immediately.
Event Data Recorder (EDR)
This vehicle is equipped with an event data recorder (EDR). The main purpose of an
EDR is to record, in certain crash or near crash-like situations, such as an air bag
deployment or hitting a road obstacle, data that will assist in understanding how a
vehicle’s systems performed. The EDR is designed to record data related to vehicle
dynamics and safety systems for a short period of time, typically 30 seconds or less.
The EDR in this vehicle is designed to record such data as:
• How various systems in your vehicle were operating;
• Whether or not the driver and passenger safety belts were buckled/fastened;
• How far (if at all) the driver was depressing the accelerator and/or brake pedal;
and,
• How fast the vehicle was traveling.
These data can help provide a better understanding of the circumstances in which
crashes and injuries occur.
16
GETTING STARTED
NOTE:
EDR data are recorded by your vehicle only if a non-trivial crash situation occurs; no
data are recorded by the EDR under normal driving conditions and no personal data
(e.g., name, gender, age, and crash location) are recorded. However, other parties,
such as law enforcement, could combine the EDR data with the type of personally
identifying data routinely acquired during a crash investigation.
To read data recorded by an EDR, special equipment is required, and access to the
vehicle or the EDR is needed. In addition to the vehicle manufacturer, other parties,
such as law enforcement, that have the special equipment, can read the information
if they have access to the vehicle or the EDR.
CHILD RESTRAINTS
Children 12 years or younger should ride properly buckled up in a rear seat, if
available. According to crash statistics, children are safer when properly restrained in
the rear seats rather than in the front.
Every state in the United States and all Canadian provinces require that small
children ride in proper restraint systems. This is the law, and you can be prosecuted
for ignoring it.
NOTE:
• For additional information, refer to www.Seatcheck.org or call 1-866SEATCHECK (1-866-732-8243 ).
• Canadian residents should refer to Transport Canada’s website for additional
information:
http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/motorvehiclesafety/safedrivers-childsafety-index-53.htm
LATCH – Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren (Four Door Models)
• Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH,
which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren.
• The rear outboard seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors.
The rear center seating position has a top tether anchor only.
17
GETTING STARTED
LATCH – Lower Anchors And Tethers For CHildren (Two Door Models)
• Your vehicle is equipped with the child restraint anchorage system called LATCH,
which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for CHildren.
• All rear seating positions have lower anchors and top tether anchors.
LATCH Weight Limit
You may use the LATCH anchorage system until the combined weight of the
child and the child restraint is 65 lbs
(29.5 kg). Use the seat belt and tether
anchor instead of the LATCH system once
the combined weight is more than 65 lbs
(29.5 kg).

Center Seat LATCH (Two-Door Models)
WARNING!
This vehicle does not have a center seating position. Do not use the center lower
LATCH anchorages to install a child seat in the center of the back seat.
Center Seat LATCH (Four-Door Models)
Do not install child restraints with rigid lower attachments in the center seating
position. Only install this type of child restraint in the outboard seating positions.
Child restraints with flexible, webbing mounted lower attachments can be installed
in any rear seating position. In the center position, the inner anchorages are 19
inches (484 mm) apart.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The LATCH Lower Anchors
NOTE:
Never “share” a LATCH anchorage with two or more child restraints.
1. Loosen the adjusters on the lower straps and on the tether strap of the child seat
so that you can more easily attach the hooks or connectors to the vehicle
anchorages.
2. Attach the lower hooks or connectors of the child restraint to the lower anchorages
in the selected seating position.
3. If the child restraint has a tether strap, connect it to the top tether anchorage. See
below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
4. Tighten all of the straps as you push the child restraint rearward and downward
into the seat. Remove slack in the straps according to the child restraint
manufacturer’s instructions.
5. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the
child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any
direction.
Installing The Child Restraint Using The Vehicle Seat Belts
The seat belts in the passenger seating positions are equipped with a Switchable
Automatic Locking Retractor (ALR) that is designed to keep the lap portion of the
seat belt tight around the child restraint. Any seat belt system will loosen with time,
so check the belt occasionally, and pull it tight if necessary.
19
GETTING STARTED
Tether Anchorage Weight Limit
Always use the tether anchor when using the seat belt to install a forward facing child
restraint, up to the recommended weight limit of the child restraint.
To Install A Child Seat Using An ALR:
1. Pull enough of the seat belt webbing from the retractor to pass it through the belt
path of the child restraint. Do not twist the belt webbing in the belt path.
2. Slide the latch plate into the buckle until you hear a “click.”
3. Pull on the webbing to make the lap portion tight against the child seat.
4. To lock the seat belt, pull down on the shoulder part of the belt until you have
pulled all the seat belt webbing out of the retractor. Then, allow the webbing to
retract back into the retractor. As the webbing retracts, you will hear a clicking
sound. This means the seat belt is now in the Automatic Locking mode.
5. Try to pull the webbing out of the retractor. If it is locked, you should not be able
to pull out any webbing. If the retractor is not locked, repeat the last step.
6. Finally, pull up on any extra webbing to tighten the lap portion around the child
restraint while you push the child restraint rearward and downward into the
vehicle seat.
7. If the child restraint has a top tether strap and the seating position has a top tether
anchorage, connect the tether strap to the anchorage and tighten the tether strap.
See below for directions to attach a tether anchor.
8. Test that the child restraint is installed tightly by pulling back and forth on the
child seat at the belt path. It should not move more than 1 inch (25.4 mm) in any
direction.
Installing The Top Tether Strap (With Either Lower Anchors Or Vehicle Seat
Belt):
When installing a forward-facing child restraint, always secure the top tether strap,
up to the tether anchor weight limit, whether the child restraint is installed with the
lower anchors or the vehicle seat belt.
Tether Strap Installation
1. Route the tether strap to provide the most direct path for the strap between the
anchor and the child seat.
2. If your vehicle is equipped with adjustable rear head restraints, raise the head
restraint, and where possible, route the tether strap under the head restraint and
between the two posts. If not possible, lower the head restraint and pass the
tether strap around the outboard side of the head restraint.
20
GETTING STARTED
3. Attach the tether strap hook of the child restraint to the top tether anchorage and
remove slack in the tether strap according to the child restraint manufacturer’s
instructions.

WARNING!
• In a collision, an unrestrained child, even a tiny baby, can become a projectile
inside the vehicle. The force required to hold even an infant on your lap could
become so great that you could not hold the child, no matter how strong you
are. The child and others could be severely injured or killed. Any child riding in
your vehicle should be in a proper restraint for the child's size.
• Never place a rear-facing child restraint in front of an air bag. A deploying
Passenger Advanced Front Air Bag can cause death or serious injury to a child
12 years or younger, including a child in a rear-facing child restraint.
• Only use a rear-facing child restraint in a vehicle with a rear seat.
• Improper installation of a child restraint to the LATCH anchorages can lead to
failure of an infant or child restraint. The child could be severely injured or
killed. Follow the manufacturer’s directions exactly when installing an infant or
child restraint.
• An incorrectly anchored tether strap could lead to increased head motion and
possible injury to the child. Use only the anchor positions directly behind the
child seat to secure a child restraint top tether strap.
• If your vehicle is equipped with a split rear seat, make sure the tether strap
does not slip into the opening between the seatbacks as you remove slack in
the strap.

HEATED SEATS
On some models, the front driver and passenger seats may be equipped with heaters
in both the seat cushions and seatbacks.
There are two heated seat switches that allow the driver and passenger to operate the
seats independently. The controls for each seat are located on a switch bank near the
bottom center of the instrument panel.
You can choose from HI, LO or OFF heat
settings. Amber indicator lights in each
switch indicate the level of heat in use.
Two indicator lights will illuminate for HI,
one for LO and none for OFF.
Push the switch once to select HI-level
heating. Push the switch a second time to
select LO-level heating. Push the switch
a third time to shut the heating elements
OFF.
When the HI-level setting is selected, the
heater will provide a boosted heat level
during the initial stages of operation.
Front Heated Seat Switches
Then, the heat output will drop to the
normal HI-level. If the HI-level setting is
selected, the system will automatically switch to LO-level after approximately 30
minutes of continuous operation. At that time, the number of illuminated LEDs
changes from two to one, indicating the change. The LO-level setting will turn OFF
automatically after approximately 30 minutes.
NOTE:
When a heat setting is selected, heat will be felt within two to five minutes.
WARNING!
• Persons who are unable to feel pain to the skin because of advanced age,
chronic illness, diabetes, spinal cord injury, medication, alcohol use, exhaustion or other physical condition must exercise care when using the seat heater.
It may cause burns even at low temperatures, especially if used for long periods
of time.
• Do not place anything on the seat or seatback that insulates against heat, such
as a blanket or cushion. This may cause the seat heater to overheat. Sitting in
a seat that has been overheated could cause serious burns due to the increased
surface temperature of the seat.
27
OPERATING YOUR VEHICLE
ENGINE BREAK-IN RECOMMENDATIONS
A long break-in period is not required for the engine and drivetrain (transmission and
axle) in your vehicle.
Drive moderately during the first 300 miles (500 km). After the initial 60 miles
(100 km), speeds up to 50 or 55 mph (80 or 90 km/h) are desirable.
While cruising, brief full-throttle acceleration within the limits of local traffic laws
contributes to a good break-in. Wide-open throttle acceleration in low gear can be
detrimental and should be avoided.
The engine oil installed in the engine at the factory is a high-quality energy
conserving type lubricant. Oil changes should be consistent with anticipated climate
conditions under which vehicle operations will occur. Refer to “Maintaining Your
Vehicle,” for the recommended viscosity and quality grades.
NOTE:
A new engine may consume some oil during its first few thousand miles (kilometers)
of operation. This should be considered a normal part of the break-in and not
interpreted as an indication of an engine problem or malfunction.
CAUTION!
Never use Non-Detergent Oil or Straight Mineral Oil in the engine or damage may
result.

INSTRUMENT CLUSTER WARNING LIGHTS
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light
If the “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” comes on continuously with the
engine running, a malfunction has been detected in the ESC system. If this light
remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven several miles
(kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend you drive to
the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
The “ESC Activation/Malfunction Indicator Light” starts to flash as soon as the tires
lose traction and the ESC system becomes active. If the light begins to flash during
acceleration, ease up on the accelerator and apply as little throttle as possible. Be
sure to adapt your speed and driving to the prevailing road conditions. The light also
flashes when Traction Control System (TCS) is active. To improve the vehicle's
traction when starting off in deep snow, sand or gravel, it may be desirable to switch
the ESC system to Partial Off mode by momentarily pushing the ESC Off
switch.
– Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) Light
Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold
and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on
the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a
different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure
label, you should determine the proper tire inflation pressure for those tires).
As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure
monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or
more of your tires is significantly under-inflated. Accordingly, when the low tire
pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible
and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire
causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces
fuel efficiency and tire tread life and may affect the vehicle’s handling and stopping
ability.
101
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
IF THE LIGHT STARTS FLASHING INDICATING A LOW TIRE PRESSURE, ADJUST
THE AIR PRESSURE IN THE LOW TIRE TO THE AIR PRESSURE SHOWN ON THE
VEHICLE PLACARD OR TIRE INFLATION PRESSURE LABEL LOCATED ON THE
DRIVER'S DOOR.
NOTE:
AFTER INFLATION, THE VEHICLE MAY NEED TO BE DRIVEN FOR 20 MINUTES
BEFORE THE FLASHING LIGHT WILL TURN OFF.
Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is
the driver’s responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has
not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.
Your vehicle has also been equipped with a TPMS malfunction indicator to indicate
when the system is not operating properly. The TPMS malfunction indicator is
combined with the low tire pressure telltale.
When the system detects a malfunction, the telltale will flash for approximately one
minute and then remain continuously illuminated. This sequence will continue upon
subsequent vehicle start-ups as long as the malfunction exists. When the malfunction indicator is illuminated, the system may not be able to detect or signal low tire
pressure as intended. TPMS malfunctions may occur for a variety of reasons,
including the installation of replacement or alternate tires or wheels on the vehicle
that prevent the TPMS from functioning properly. Always check the TPMS malfunction telltale after replacing one or more tires or wheels on your vehicle to ensure that
the replacement or alternate tires and wheels allow the TPMS to continue to function
properly.
NOTE:
Tire pressures change by approximately 1 psi (7 kPa) per 12° F (7° C) of air
temperature change. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure inside a garage,
especially in the Winter. Example: If garage temperature is 68°F (20°C), and the
outside temperature is 32°F (0°C), then the cold tire inflation pressure should be
increased by 3 psi (21 kPa), which equals 1 psi (7 kPa) for every 12°F (7°C) for this
outside temperature condition.
CAUTION!
The TPMS has been optimized for the original equipment tires and wheels. TPMS
pressures and warning have been established for the tire size equipped on your
vehicle. Undesirable system operation or sensor damage may result when using
replacement equipment that is not of the same size, type, and/or style. Aftermarket wheels can cause sensor damage. Do not use tire sealant from a can, or
balance beads if your vehicle is equipped with a TPMS, as damage to the sensors
may result.
102
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
– Engine Temperature Warning Light
This light warns of an overheated engine condition.
If the light turns on and a warning chime sounds while driving, safely pull over and
stop the vehicle. If the A/C system is on, turn it off. Also, shift the transmission into
NEUTRAL and idle the vehicle. If the temperature reading does not return to normal,
turn the engine off immediately.
We recommend that you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have
the vehicle serviced immediately.
WARNING!
A hot engine cooling system is dangerous. You or others could be badly burned by
steam or boiling coolant.
– Brake Warning Light
This light monitors various brake functions, including brake fluid level and parking
brake application. If the brake light turns on, it may indicate that the parking brake
is applied, that the brake fluid level is low, or that there is a problem with the brake
system master cylinder reservoir.
If the light remains on when the parking brake has been disengaged, and the fluid
level is at the full mark on the master cylinder reservoir, it indicates a possible brake
hydraulic system malfunction or that a problem with the Brake Booster has been
detected by the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS)/Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
system. In this case, the light will remain on until the condition has been corrected.
If the problem is related to the brake booster, the ABS pump will run when applying
the brake, and a brake pedal pulsation may be felt during each stop.
The dual brake system provides a reserve braking capacity in the event of a failure to
a portion of the hydraulic system. A leak in either half of the dual brake system is
indicated by the Brake Warning Light, which will turn on when the brake fluid level
in the master cylinder has dropped below a specified level. The light will remain on
until the cause is corrected.
Vehicles equipped with the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) are also equipped with
Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD). In the event of an EBD failure, the Brake
Warning Light will turn on along with the ABS Light. Immediate repair to the ABS
system is required.
Operation of the Brake Warning Light can be checked by turning the ignition switch
from the OFF position to the ON/RUN position. The light should illuminate for
approximately two seconds. The light should then turn off unless the parking brake
is applied or a brake fault is detected. If the light does not illuminate, have the light
inspected by an authorized dealer.
103
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
The light also will turn on when the parking brake is applied with the ignition switch
in the ON/RUN position.
NOTE:
This light shows only that the parking brake is applied. It does not show the degree
of brake application.
WARNING!
Driving a vehicle with the red brake light on is dangerous. Part of the brake system
may have failed. It will take longer to stop the vehicle. You could have a collision.
Have the vehicle checked immediately.
– Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL)
Certain conditions, such as a loose or missing gas cap, poor fuel quality, etc., may
illuminate the MIL after engine start. The vehicle should be serviced if the light stays
on through several typical driving cycles. In most situations, the vehicle will drive
normally and not require towing.
If the MIL flashes when the engine is running, serious conditions may exist that could
lead to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage. We recommend
you do not operate the vehicle. Have the vehicle serviced immediately.
- Electronic Stability Control (ESC) OFF Activation/Malfunction Warning
Light
If the ESC OFF warning light comes on continuously with the engine running, a
malfunction has been detected.
If this light remains on after several ignition cycles, and the vehicle has been driven
several miles (kilometers) at speeds greater than 30 mph (48 km/h), we recommend
you drive to the nearest service center and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
– Charging System Light
This light shows the status of the electrical charging system. If the charging system
light remains on, it means that the vehicle is experiencing a problem with the
charging system.
We recommend you do not continue driving if the charging system light is on. Have
the vehicle serviced immediately.
– Oil Pressure Warning Light
This light indicates low engine oil pressure. If the light turns on while driving, stop
the vehicle and shut off the engine as soon as possible. A chime will sound when this
light turns on.
We recommend you do not operate the vehicle or engine damage will occur. Have the
vehicle serviced immediately.
104
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
– Anti-Lock Brake (ABS) Light
This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS).
If the light is not on during starting, stays on or turns on while driving, we recommend
you contact the nearest authorized dealer and have the vehicle serviced immediately.
– Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) Indicator Light
This light informs you of a problem with the system.
If a problem is detected, the light will come on while the engine is running. Cycle the
ignition when the vehicle has completely stopped and the shift lever is placed in the
PARK position; the light should turn off.
If the light remains lit with the engine running, your vehicle will usually be drivable.
However, see an authorized dealer immediately. If the light is flashing when the
engine is running, immediate service is required, and you may experience reduced
performance, an elevated/rough idle or engine stall, and your vehicle may require
towing.
- Air Bag Warning Light
This light will turn on for four to eight seconds as a bulb check when the ignition
switch is first turned to the ON/RUN position. If the light is either not on during
starting, stays on, or turns on while driving, have the system inspected at an
authorized dealer as soon as possible. Refer to “Occupant Restraints” in “Things To
Know Before Starting Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further
information.
NOTE:
The Air Bag System is designed to be maintenance free.

IF YOUR ENGINE OVERHEATS
In any of the following situations, you can reduce the potential for overheating by
taking the appropriate action.
• On the highways — slow down.
• In city traffic — while stopped, shift transmission into NEUTRAL, but do not
increase engine idle speed.
CAUTION!
Driving with a hot cooling system could damage your vehicle. If the temperature
gauge reads HOT (H), pull over and stop the vehicle. Idle the vehicle with the air
conditioner turned off until the pointer drops back into the normal range. If the
pointer remains on HOT (H), and you hear continuous chimes, turn the engine off
immediately, and call for service.
NOTE:
There are steps that you can take to slow down an impending overheat condition:
• If your air conditioner (A/C) is on, turn it off. The A/C system adds heat to the
engine cooling system and turning the A/C off can help remove this heat.
• You can also turn the temperature control to maximum heat, the mode control to
floor and the blower control to high. This allows the heater core to act as a
supplement to the radiator and aids in removing heat from the engine cooling
system.
WARNING!
You or others can be badly burned by hot engine coolant (antifreeze) or steam from
your radiator. If you see or hear steam coming from under the hood, do not open
the hood until the radiator has had time to cool. Never try to open a cooling system
pressure cap when the radiator or coolant bottle is hot.

BEST METHOD
Proper towing or lifting equipment is required to prevent damage to your vehicle. Use
only tow bars and other equipment designed for this purpose, following equipment
manufacturer’s instructions. Use of safety chains is mandatory. Attach a tow bar or
other towing device to main structural members of the vehicle, not to bumpers or
associated brackets. State and local laws regarding vehicles under tow must be
observed.
If you must use the accessories (wipers, defrosters, etc.) while being towed, the
ignition must be in the ON/RUN position, not the ACC position.
If the vehicle's battery is discharged, refer to “Shift Lever Override” in this section for
instructions on shifting the automatic transmission out of PARK for towing.
CAUTION!
• Do not use sling type equipment when towing. Vehicle damage may occur.
• When securing the vehicle to a flatbed truck, do not attach to front or rear
suspension components. Damage to your vehicle may result from improper
towing.
117
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
Without The Ignition Key
Special care must be taken when the vehicle is towed with the ignition in the LOCK
position. The only approved method of towing without the ignition key is with a
flatbed truck. Proper towing equipment is necessary to prevent damage to the
vehicle.
Four–Wheel Drive Models
The manufacturer recommends towing with all wheels OFF the ground. Acceptable
methods are to tow the vehicle on a flatbed or with one end of the vehicle raised and
the opposite end on a towing dolly.
If flatbed equipment is not available and the transfer case is operable, the vehicle
may be towed (in the forward direction, with ALL wheels on the ground), IF the transfer
case is in NEUTRAL (N) and the transmission is in PARK (for automatic transmissions)
or in gear ( NOT in NEUTRAL, for manual transmissions). Refer to “Recreational
Towing” in “Starting And Operating” in the Owners Manual on the DVD for detailed
instructions.
CAUTION!
• Front or rear wheel lifts must not be used. Internal damage to the transmission
or transfer case will occur if a front or rear wheel lift is used when towing.
• Towing this vehicle in violation of the above requirements can cause severe
transmission and/or transfer case damage. Damage from improper towing is
not covered under the New Vehicle Limited Warranty.
118
WHAT TO DO IN EMERGENCIES
FREEING A STUCK VEHICLE
If your vehicle becomes stuck in mud, sand or snow, it can often be moved using a
rocking motion. Turn the steering wheel right and left to clear the area around the
front wheels. Then shift back and forth between DRIVE and REVERSE (with
automatic transmission) or 2nd gear and REVERSE (with manual transmission),
while gently pressing the accelerator. Use the least amount of accelerator pedal
pressure that will maintain the rocking motion, without spinning the wheels, or racing
the engine.
CAUTION!
Racing the engine or spinning the wheels may lead to transmission overheating
and failure. Allow the engine to idle with the transmission in NEUTRAL for at least
one minute after every five rocking-motion cycles. This will minimize overheating
and reduce the risk of clutch or transmission failure during prolonged efforts to
free a stuck vehicle.
NOTE:
Push the "ESC Off" switch, to place the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system in
"Partial Off" mode, before rocking the vehicle. Refer to “Electronic Brake Control” in
“Starting And Operating” in the Owner’s Manual on the DVD for further information.
Once the vehicle has been freed, push the "ESC Off" switch again to restore "ESC On"
mode.
CAUTION!
• When “rocking” a stuck vehicle by shifting between DRIVE/2nd gear and
REVERSE, do not spin the wheels faster than 15 mph (24 km/h), or drivetrain
damage may result.
• Revving the engine or spinning the wheels too fast may lead to transmission
overheating and failure. It can also damage the tires. Do not spin the wheels
above 30 mph (48 km/h) while in gear (no transmission shifting occurring).
WARNING!
Fast spinning tires can be dangerous. Forces generated by excessive wheel speeds
may cause damage, or even failure, of the axle and tires. A tire could explode and
injure someone. Do not spin your vehicle's wheels faster than 30 mph (48 km/h)
or for longer than 30 seconds continuously without stopping when you are stuck
and do not let anyone near a spinning wheel, no matter what the speed.

MAINTENANCE PROCEDURES
For information on the maintenance procedures for your vehicle, please refer to
“Maintenance Procedures” in “Maintaining Your Vehicle” in your Owner’s Manual or
applicable supplement on the DVD for further details.
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
Your vehicle is equipped with an automatic oil change indicator system. The oil
change indicator system will remind you that it is time to take your vehicle in for
scheduled maintenance.
Based on engine operation conditions, the oil change indicator message will
illuminate. This means that service is required for your vehicle. Operating conditions
such as frequent short-trips, trailer tow, extremely hot or cold ambient temperatures
will influence when the “Change Oil” or “Oil Change Required” message is displayed. Severe Operating Conditions can cause the change oil message to illuminate
as early as 3,500 miles (5,600 km) since last reset. Have your vehicle serviced as
soon as possible, within the next 500 miles (805 km).
On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) equipped vehicles, “Oil Change
Required” will be displayed in the EVIC and a single chime will sound, indicating that
an oil change is necessary.
On Non-EVIC equipped vehicles, “Change Oil” will flash in the instrument cluster
odometer and a single chime will sound, indicating that an oil change is necessary.
Your authorized dealer will reset the oil change indicator message after completing
the scheduled oil change. If a scheduled oil change is performed by someone other
than your authorized dealer, the message can be reset by referring to the steps
described under “Instrument Cluster Warning Lights” in “What To Do In Emergencies” in this guide or “Instrument Cluster Descriptions” or “Electronic Vehicle
Information Center (EVIC)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” in the
Owner’s Manual on your DVD for further information.
NOTE:
Under no circumstances should oil change intervals exceed 10,000 miles
(16,000 km), twelve months or 350 hours of engine run time, whichever comes first.
The 350 hours of engine run or idle time is generally only a concern for fleet
customers.
Severe Duty All Models
Change Engine Oil at 4,000 miles (6,500 km) if the vehicle is operated in a dusty

CAUTION!
• When installing the Integrated Power Module cover, it is important to ensure
the cover is properly positioned and fully latched. Failure to do so may allow
water to get into the Integrated Power Module, and possibly result in an
electrical system failure.
• When replacing a blown fuse, it is important to use only a fuse having the correct
amperage rating. The use of a fuse with a rating other than indicated may result in
a dangerous electrical system overload. If a properly rated fuse continues to blow, it
indicates a problem in the circuit that must be corrected.

TIRES — GENERAL INFORMATION
TIRE PRESSURES
• Check the inflation pressure of each tire, including the spare tire, at least monthly
and inflate to the recommended pressure for your vehicle.
• The tire pressures recommended for your vehicle are found on the “Tire And
Loading Information” label located on the driver’s side door opening.
Two Door Tire Placard Location
Example
Four Door Tire Placard Location
NOTE:
Refer to the Owner's Manual on the DVD
for more information regarding tire warnings and instructions.
Example
135
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
• Overloading of your tires is dangerous. Overloading can cause tire failure,
affect vehicle handling, and increase your stopping distance. Use tires of the
recommended load capacity for your vehicle. Never overload them.
• Improperly inflated tires are dangerous and can cause collisions. Under-inflation is
the leading cause of tire failure and may result in severe cracking, component
separation, or “blow out”. Over-inflation reduces a tire’s ability to cushion shock.
Objects on the road and chuck holes can cause damage that results in tire failure.
Unequal tire pressures can cause steering problems. You could lose control of your
vehicle. Over-inflated or under-inflated tires can affect vehicle handling and can fail
suddenly, resulting in loss of vehicle control.
SPARE TIRES — IF EQUIPPED
NOTE:
For vehicles equipped with Tire Service Kit instead of a spare tire, please refer to “Tire
Service Kit” in “What To Do In Emergencies” on your DVD for further information.
CAUTION!
Because of the reduced ground clearance, do not take your vehicle through an
automatic car wash with a compact or limited-use temporary spare installed.
Damage to the vehicle may result.
Spare Tire Matching Original Equipped Tire And Wheel — If Equipped
Your vehicle may be equipped with a spare tire and wheel equivalent in look and function
to the original equipment tire and wheel found on the front or rear axle of your vehicle. This
spare tire may be used in the tire rotation for your vehicle. If your vehicle has this option,
refer to an authorized tire dealer for the recommended tire rotation pattern.
Compact Spare Tire — If Equipped
The compact spare is for temporary emergency use only. You can identify if your
vehicle is equipped with a compact spare by looking at the spare tire description on
the Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the driver’s side door opening or
on the sidewall of the tire. Compact spare tire descriptions begin with the letter “T”
or “S” preceding the size designation. Example: T145/80D18 103M.
T, S = Temporary Spare Tire
Since this tire has limited tread life, the original equipment tire should be repaired
(or replaced) and reinstalled on your vehicle at the first opportunity.
Do not install a wheel cover or attempt to mount a conventional tire on the compact spare
wheel, since the wheel is designed specifically for the compact spare tire. Do not install
more than one compact spare tire and wheel on the vehicle at any given time.
136
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WARNING!
Compact spares are for temporary emergency use only. With these spares, do not
drive more than 50 mph (80 km/h). Temporary use spares have limited tread life.
When the tread is worn to the tread wear indicators, the temporary use spare tire
needs to be replaced. Be sure to follow the warnings, which apply to your spare.
Failure to do so could result in spare tire failure and loss of vehicle control.
Full Size Spare — If Equipped
The full size spare is for temporary emergency use only. This tire may look like the
originally equipped tire on the front or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. This
spare tire may have limited tread life. When the tread is worn to the tread wear
indicators, the temporary use full size spare tire needs to be replaced. Since it is not
the same as your original equipment tire, replace (or repair) the original equipment
tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first opportunity.
Limited-Use Spare — If Equipped
The limited-use spare tire is for temporary emergency use only. This tire is identified
by a label located on the limited-use spare wheel. This label contains the driving
limitations for this spare. This tire may look like the original equipped tire on the front
or rear axle of your vehicle, but it is not. Installation of this limited-use spare tire
affects vehicle handling. Since it is not the same as your original equipment tire,
replace (or repair) the original equipment tire and reinstall on the vehicle at the first
opportunity.
WARNING!
Limited-use spares are for emergency use only. Installation of this limited-use
spare tire affects vehicle handling. With this tire, do not drive more than the speed
listed on the limit-use spare wheel. Keep inflated to the cold tire inflation
pressures listed on your Tire and Loading Information Placard located on the
driver’s side B-Pillar or the rear edge of the driver’s side door. Replace (or repair)
the original equipment tire at the first opportunity and reinstall it on your vehicle.
Failure to do so could result in loss of vehicle control.
137
MAINTAINING YOUR VEHICLE
WHEEL AND WHEEL TRIM CARE
All wheels and wheel trim, especially aluminum and chrome plated wheels, should
be cleaned regularly with a mild soap and water to prevent corrosion.
To remove heavy soil and/or excessive brake dust, use MOPAR Wheel Cleaner or
equivalent or select a non-abrasive, non-acidic cleaner.
CAUTION!
Do not use scouring pads, steel wool, a bristle brush, or metal polishes. Do not use
oven cleaner. These products may damage the wheel's protective finish. Avoid
automatic car washes that use acidic solutions or harsh brushes that may damage
the wheel's protective finish. Only MOPAR Wheel Cleaner or equivalent is
recommended.

that a safety defect exists in a group of vehicles, it may order a recall and remedy
campaign. However, NHTSA cannot become involved in individual problems between
you, your authorized dealer and the manufacturer.
To contact NHTSA, you may either call the Auto Safety Hotline toll free at
1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov; or write

This guide has been prepared to help you
get quickly acquainted with your new Jeep
Brand Vehicle and to provide a convenient
reference source for common questions.
However, it is not a substitute for your
Owner’s Manual.
For complete operational instructions,
maintenance procedures and important
safety messages, please consult your
Owner’s Manual, Navigation/Uconnect
Manuals and other Warning Labels in
your vehicle.
If you are the first registered retail owner of your vehicle, you
may obtain a complimentary printed copy of the Owner’s
Manual, Navigation/Uconnect Manuals or Warranty Booklet by
calling 1-877-426-5337 (U.S.) or 1-800-387-1143 (Canada) or
by contacting your dealer.
The driver’s primary
responsibility is the safe
operation of the vehicle.
Driving while distracted
can result in loss of
vehicle control, resulting
in a collision and personal
injury. FCA US LLC
strongly recommends that
the driver use extreme
caution when using any
device or feature that may
take their attention off
the road. Use of any
electrical devices, such
as cellular telephones,
computers, portable
radios, vehicle navigation
or other devices, by the
driver while the vehicle is
moving is dangerous and
could lead to a serious
collision. Texting while
driving is also dangerous
and should never be done
while the vehicle is
moving. If you find
yourself unable to devote
your full attention to
vehicle operation, pull off
the road to a safe location
and stop your vehicle.
Some states or provinces
prohibit the use of cellular
telephones or texting
while driving. It is always
the driver’s responsibility
to comply with all
local laws.
Not all features shown in this
guide may apply to your vehicle. For
additional information on accessories
to help personalize your vehicle, visit
www.mopar.com (U.S.), www.mopar.ca
(Canada) or your local Jeep brand dealer.
D r iv in g an d A l cohol :
Drunken driving is one of the most frequent causes of collisions. Your
driving ability can be seriously impaired with blood alcohol levels far below
the legal minimum. If you are drinking, don’t drive. Ride with a designated
non-drinking driver, call a cab, a friend, or use public transportation.
Im por ta n t:
WARNING:
This User Guide is intended to familiarize you with the important features of
your vehicle. The DVD enclosed contains your Owner’s Manual, Navigation/
Uconnect Manuals, Warranty Booklets, Tire Warranty and Roadside
Assistance (new vehicles purchased in the U.S.) or Roadside Assistance
(new vehicles purchased in Canada) in electronic format. We hope you
find it useful. Replacement DVD kits may be purchased by visiting
www.techauthority.com.
Driving after drinking can lead to a collision. Your perceptions are less sharp,
your reflexes are slower, and your judgment is impaired when you have been
drinking. Never drink and then drive.
