Well, I had it added when I was in for my oil change and the update they did was the "cluster recall" one. Some how they de-activated my folding mirrors, so when I returned to have them reactivated I noticed when I got home the winter park was GONE! This dealer is selling their Jaguar side and they have very limited service techs so I will be working on another dealer for the update and wiper mode.
Well Yes and NoThey have removed winter wiper park mode from 2018 + models which explains why it disappears with software updates. Corporate tells me there is no way to get your wipers off windshield to avoid freezing since we all know that if you put them in service mode and lift them from windshield but walk away with keys they go down again. So if wipers freezing to your windshield is an issue for you make sure you get the heated windshield (which I do not have).
Cat,this pisses me off!!!! My service adviser told me he will keep looking for a way to turn it on because he believes it can be done but so far, no luck. Can you get any details on how to do it?
I doubt it, he has watched me cry now for over a year and is pleading with me to drive the new one. He knew that was on the original sales papers and that I could reject the car for not doing it if he had a way, he would have done it. And he will do it if/when it can be doneCat,
It might be the dealer just doesn’t want to do it. I can check for on Monday there are not there on the weekends, if I recall it’s under the personalization preferences. There are like 10 options.
Please read post #9 on page one of this thread.I was told in May at my 2nd annual service, that the Winter Wiper Mode was definitely not available. And that's after asking the dealer to doublecheck because it was mentioned on this site that it was 'hidden' in the menu. Nada. So what's the concensus; is it available, or not?
This proves again that it is available on MY17 and MY19 but still nobody with a MY18? Will definitely ask service when it goes in DecemberFirst I would just like to thank @DPinTX for all your help!
I just got back from getting some service done, was noticing some weird things with the navigation and also wanted winter wiper park. They did an update to hopefully fix the nav and told me winter wiper park was only available for Land Rover but not Jag's. I kindly let them know I had a "friend" who has the same year/model and they just need to activate it in Pathfinder. He was all for giving it a shot, 10 minutes later he came back and showed me they activated it
So further proof they dealer can very easily activate it. They didn't give me any push back after I told them I've already seen it added and where they need to look. He was actually excited and mentioned he had another customer asking about it as well and will now be able to help them.
Side note: Normally they wash your car for you but I brought my car in basically spotless and you can obviously tell it has been lowered with aftermarket wheels, the service tech said "you probably don't want us to wash it huh?" I said nope please don't. Super happy they asked, it's the little things in life haha.
Original 17 version (too many to remember) update I had to request the feature to be turned on. When I brought the Cat back in for the 18B update it was removed, but asked the tech to reactive it when I brought the Cat back in for service. Basically the out of the box configuration for the 18B software does not have it activated, so they need to flip a bit to turn it back on.did it come active or did your service tech activate it after the fact? And do you have the latest software update as some have said software updates take it away
