Might not be cool if 6 months later the mounts shift and affect the braking.
My mechanic was able to contact NSA RV Products to discuss this with them. They indicated they had not actually installed it on the new Cherokee yet. So after discussions with them we are going to drill the larger hole on the inside and then mount the cable on the engine side of the firewall. He says he will use a grommet to cover the cut edge of the hole and as long as that hole is large enough it should not interfere with the brake cable. So I think we will be good to go. I will have to let you all know how it turns out. Thanks for your input...

Ron,

Sorry, I misunderstood your comment. You are correct the Cherokee must sense the key fob within the car for anything other that the remote start to work. If the engine is running and I get out of the car with the key fob in my pocket and shut the door, even if I am standing right beside the door, buzzers go off.

The point I was attempting to make was that the 2015 Cherokee Limited has many inter-related systems that utilize a signal from the brake pedal in their operation. I am very hesitant to start poking around with the the brake pedal. Installing a brake pedal relay, to stop the brake lights from overriding the turn signals, could cause issues with some of these systems.

There was a time where I would jump in with both feet and figure it out as I went along. After shooting myself in the foot a few times, I have found that is far easier to let a professional have the headaches of figuring out what works, and what doesn't. My feet aren't nearly as sore as they used to be.

I wish I would have known about those Demco plug and play harnesses. But, oh well- too late. Hopefully it will all be good.

One of the benefits of the Demco harness is the built in plug for trailer lights, should you add a hitch to the Cherokee and want to tow something.

If you end up installing a relay on your Cherokee's Brake switch, so that the brakes don't override the turn signals, please let me know if you have any adverse effects or problems.
