Welcome Aboard, Shipmate!

That's an easy one too! Chrysler's, "Owners Manual Writers", were too busy filling out the, "Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Forms" last April!

Now, they're just too busy translating everything over to Italian for Fiat!

Cheers!

The sales people should inform you of the HA. I stalled one on a test drive due to it. Funny thing, had to be there. Been driving manuals forever and only ever stalled when I was learning to drive. Wasn't until after the test drive and doing research that I discovered these new ones come with that feature.

The owners manual on the disk is much better than the hard copy (lots more info) it will tell you pretty much anything you want to know except how to disable the chime when the key is in the ignition and the door is open, been trying to figure it out for a while, must be a way. Maybe.......steering wheel left then right, lights on/off 3 times then key on/lock 4 times spin around touch my toes and say there's know place like home 3 times........

The DVD was the same exact thing as the little booklet I had in the glove box. Like 10 pages of really nothing except how to take down the softtop.

Oh well I got it now and all is good

well thats the thing I like the little roll back thats what i'm used to over the years. When it doesn't want to move and seems to wind - that makes me nervous because i;m tacing like 4 grand to get it to move! but I have been adjusting to it or I can turn it off.. we'll see

You need to dig deeper into the files on the disk, its not part of the DVD. Open the disk content by right clicking on the disk. Go to "my computer, right click on "WRANGLER" select "open", click on the file "Owner_Info_PC.exe", then click "START" then click "ACCEPT" then click on the Owners Manual tab. There is a TON of info there. I know its very convoluted but it's easier than it sounds. Good luck .

It only holds for 3 seconds before it releases, just wait a little longer between letting off the brake and letting out the clutch.
