Hi.. I have a 2004 Jeep unlimited 6cyl.. It appears that it doesn't have any spark... But it starts almost everytime with a Key trick or sequence... It has been looked at by private shops & 1 chrysler dealership... I have been told it needs a new computer... but THEY ARE OUT OF STOCK NATIONWIDE... I believe I'm number 7 or 17 on a waitlist... They have no idea what kind of time frame this will be..... I'm still using it... But sometimes it can take 15 times with the Key trick to start... I actually got it through inspection yesterday... But I'm assuming ..I may be just buying time.. (hopefully alot..lol)
I was also told by someone .. (just talking about this) that I could have someone try to bypass the security system .. & the key should work..
I have tried 3 different keys... they will all work with this sequence.. However.. it does seem to perfer one key best...
once it starts it runs & stays running good..
HOPEFULLY SOMEONE MAY BE ABLE TO HELP.. OR GIVE ADVICE.. ANYTHING WOULD BE APPRECIATED... THANK YOU!!!!
In case this information may help someone... the key sequence is
1-- try to start as normal..
2-go back to Accessory postion
3- go back to middle & TAKE KEY OUT & put back..
4-try to start as normal again..
I haven't quite nailed how quickly or slowly it should be done.. I believe quicker is better...
Thanks again.. Cathy
