I've had my unlimited for almost a year with absolutly no problems until recently. The engine would'nt turn over, I a few minuets checking things with no luck decided to call dealer. Service manager told me this had been happening and that it had to do with the Anti-theft system. Luckily there's a work around to get you on your way. Under the hood in the fuse compartment there's a rather large white square that holds twu fuses.You need to lift it up (appox. 1/4 inch ) for about ten seconds.This re-sets the system and it started. Service tech said the glitch had to do with the micro-chip in the key not communicating with a module in the dash. Said they would order a replacement and I made an appointment but it's been two weeks and has'nt happened again. I,m debating weather to bother thinking same could happen with new one. Anyway I thought pass the story along so if someone experiences the same thing they won't freak. shock

Personally, I'd get it fixed - even if the new one breaks, you're able to show them a pattern and keep getting them fixed. Wink

About a year after, When I went to unlock it chirped as if someone tried to break in. Wouldn't start. We had to disconnect the battery to force it to re-set. Thanks for the post, didn't know it was something they could fix! It hasn't happened since and that was a yr ago.
