Post 1st post - 1st Jeep - One question..

Hey folks,

Great forum BTW.

I just bought a new 2010 Wrangler Sport, standard tranny. Reason I mention the standard is i'm not even sure this is an issue but it's odd.

I've driven standards before but for some reason when I am on a slight incline / hill the Jeep tends to not want to move. yes sounds weird but its like having the emergency brake on to the max and trying to take off.

I get this whining noise and then I have to put my foot on the brake push the clutch down and make sure its in gear (which I know it is)

Then I give it a little more power on the pedal - it takes off but bucks or jumps.

Very annoyed but maybe its just me not used to the Jeep, the hill and the power to release the clutch and press the pedal on this incline?? I mean it should be a smooth process.

I haven't contacted the svr. dept. yet.

Anyone else fimiliar with this?

TIA!

Welcome to the forum!!! You are describing the "hill start assist" feature. It just takes some getting use to.

Its a nice feature on new cars. But be careful when you drive a car without it. You will freak out when you start rolling back on a hill. If not right into the car behind you!!!

Welcome ! I disabled my hill assist. I just couldn't get use to it. I have driven manuals for years so hills don't bother me.

Yep, these guys got it for you! Kind of a cool feature however I'm not sure what I think of it. If people are learning on a new Wrangler, they will never truely learn driving a stick, because part of it is learning HOW to start on a hill. Haha. I never knew you could disable this feature though!

OH! Welcome and enjoy your Wrangler!

Yes, welcome. I too disabled the hill assist. Nice idea, but not needed, for sure.

Thumbs up Cool..

Hey thx folks!

I will try and make it a little tougher next time lol

Well thats def. the issue - well its supposed to be that way.

I found some info. on the web about it. How do you disable it? I will give it more time I just don't want to burn out my clutch!

I will take another look at the manual but man this thing is bear! They give you instructions about taking down the softtop but anything else I had to Google i.e DTS, ECO, needing a T50 bolt to take off the doors, drain plugs, etc.. How come the manual is so non-informative??

Couple pics so far I have won't upload. I'm an IT guy and my pics are well under the max requirements. I made sure in Photoshop. Upload keep failing as a jpeg and bmp. Any ideas on this one?

Host the photos somewhere else. I use PicasaWeb from Google. The host site will give you a link. Come over here and click this button above and paste the addy you took from the picture host. That's it!

followed instructions to a T but IMG place holders aren't working I don't think.

I provided the links that work fine. Only two so far though! lol

Tactics,

On Picasa pull the picture up you want to link. To the right you will see an option that says "Link to this photo." When you click that some more options will drop down. I check the box that says Image only (no link) and select the size you want. I use large. Then click in the box that says Embed image above it. It will highlight all of the text inside the box automaticly. Right click and copy. That is what you want to post inside the [IMG] [/IMG] tags.

I'm not sure if i googled it or if it was in the owners manual to disable the hill assist. I just checked google and you can find how to disable the hill assist there. Good luck

As far as the Hill Start Assist- It took me a bit to get used to as well, (haveing driven manual trans for a long time) I notice however that if you do not press the brake all the way to the floor, but just enough to stop the jeep, the Hill Assist (or HA! as I like to call it), won't engage. It's nice to be able to choose on the fly rather than completely disabling it.
