For me, the remote start only beeps once when I haven't fully closed a door.

Put a stubby antenna X on your key fob

Test with both sets of keys, if both have the same issue then have the dealer replace the the WCM, wireless control module. I just had mine replaced on my 2014. It was defective.

Hold it tightly against your chin bone when you press the button. Makes your whole body an antenna. Seriously, it works. I thought it was total BS.

Mine does this as well, I have put the fob under my chin and it works sometimes, however other times it doesn't do anything. The strange thing is, I can be in a building and click the button twice (Not being close enough to even see the Jeep), I walk out and it is started. Other times I have to walk right up to the Jeep for it to work. I haven't tried my other fob, this was my next step to rule out the battery.

If you are low on Gas, it won't start. (Yellow low-gas light on)
