I Picked up my Renegade on monday 3/30/15 and I'm still finding new things and Easter Eggs. So a few of the secrets I have found is the center arm rest, that slides out and the fully adjustable sun visors. My favorite easter eggs is Bigfoot.. (Sorry no Pic of Bigfoot posted yet... I didnt want to spoil it :D)

So what have you found?


Pic of the arm rest.



and of course the head light and the tail light easter eggs.

Another secret that I just found last night. When I was was backing into the driveway with the windshield wipers on, as soon as i put it into reverse the back window wiper turned on and as soon as I put her into park it turned off. :eek:

And with the Trailhawk (don't know about other models), if you have the headlights on, but not the fog lights, and put on the turn signal, the fog light on just that side lights up. It then turns off when the turn signal cancels.

The same thing happens on my latitude. I thought light was burned out when te salesmen brought her around right before delivery.

So the center console will move forward? I had to move the driver seat up, and I noticed I didn't have a place for my arm. This is good to know.

Yes, the lid of the console moves forward. That's the way it is in my 2009 Challenger too, but I never used the forward position.

It's also on the Latitude as well. They call it Cornering Fog Lights - Depending on either steering angle or turn signal, it'll turn on the corresponding fog light.

Adaptive lighting. It's meant to light up the corner as you turn. Albeit, a cheap way of doing it. Normally the head lamp assembly rotates via a servo motor in coordination with steering input.

More on the fog light during turns.

It only functions at speeds less than 20 mph and when you either use the turn signal, or you can 'blip' the foglight by momentarily flicking the turn signal lever.

On the Trailhawk (maybe others), the fog light comes on when you initiate a turn even if you don't use the turn signal. Turn right, the right fog comes on; turn left, the left fog comes on.

My VW can use the fog lights as cornering lights. It's an option that can be turned on or off via the CANBUS.

I wonder if FCA has a similar setup?

I have found the bigfoot and the jeep but not the spider yet. Just picked mine up yesterday. So Fun. LOVING this Jeep so far!
You should find the spider in about 300 miles. ;)

You can can turn this option on or off with the radio.
