jml I'm getting used to the starter delay but the horn delay? I've never seen that before.

4Pnuts My 2012 Wrangler Unlimited has a similar delay when I honk the horn. I can't "blip" the horn. There is a pause then about a 1/2 second honk. That's as short as it will go.
Does everything have to be computer controlled?
Good to hear the starter delay isn't just mine.

hey Jim, does it happen with your spare key also? (the second one with the transponder chip in it)

1rootman fyi my jeep dealer wants $160 for a new key

thaduke2003 ^ That would be the easiest way. You certainly can't get it aftermarket with the immobilizer. Best advice- DON'T LOSE YOUR KEYS! Mark W.

jmartz Mine hesitates as well. It's good to know that it's normal.

As for the alarm, I didn't know mine had one. Scared the daylights out of me when I unlocked the door with the key and then opened the door. :-)

Does anyone know what would need to be done if I were to misplace one of the keys and wanted a replacement? Would I have to order that through the dealer I purchased from?

Yep, non chipped keys will only run the jeep for two seconds then it dies. Also, if you lock the doors with the key fob (setting the alarm) and then unlock them with your new keys the alarm will go off.

jaxjeeper Thanks for the replys. Feel better knowing its normal.

thaduke2003 It also has to do with the ECU checking the redundant TPS's to make sure they're in-sync- Mark W.

X2, i'm pretty sure that is why it does it also.

Starter Delay

Long time Jeep owner, newbie JK owner. The first thing I noticed is that when I turn the key to start it there is a delay of a second or 2 and then it starts. Starts every time with no other trouble. I am used to driving a ford pickup and all I have to do is bump the key to the start position and it starts. Don't even have to hold it. Just curious if this starting delay is an issue or if it is something common on JK's. Thanks
