chucky cheese When I was one month old I was broke too. Being born in a traveling circus I was tossed out with the rest of refuse to make the circus wagon lighter for travel. There I was one month old, broke, nowhere to go. Spending days wandering the countryside in soiled diapers never knowing where my next bottle would come from. Yes I admit at the tender age of one month, broke and homeless I did wander into the seedy sides of towns looking for a bosom to suckle and a good burping. But time has passed and I am much older approaching the age of diapers again and craving for a bottle. I am still broke but I have a Jeep now. So I guess I can look forward to be more brokererer.

SoDak Jeeper It would not turn over. The key chip signal receiver on mine was broken and would not recognize my chip in my key. So the security system was of the understanding that my Jeep was being stolen by a foreign key. If your alarm went off your's probably has the same problem as mine. Whats weird is that both the receiver and the key broke at the same time on mine.

khubartt01 Did your Jeep turn over? Because my key only lights up the panels and dings but when I turn it, nothing happens. Engine doesn't even turn over. The key doesn't work with the remotes either. I had the key battery checked and it's fine. It left me stranded yesterday and it had to be towed. I bought it new so I only have the one key. Thank you! -Kimberly

The best part about it is that the guy who runs the finances over at the dealership is the younger brother to my Dad's old college roommate. He told me that the repairs were on them and good luck in the NAVY
Grats man, and I will wish you good luck in the Navy too.

rich67 I had a similar issue with an old Chevy Impala I had. They ended up replacing the "body control module". It was an issue with the security system each time I tried to start it up, and engaged an ignition kill precaution as it malfunctioned, prohibiting the car from starting. It would just turn over. The security idiot light would flash, and sometimes the alarm would go off. Sounds like the same issue. I'd find it hard to believe that both transponders in your keys stopped working- more likely it's the receiver in the column or the module going bad.

daggo66 Wait, I thought you were having a problem with your Jeep?

cigarsnbeer I'm from Ohio and call it pop... Also got tons of headaches when my family moved to FL for that one.

snochick Harley was originally a 2010. She became a 2011 the week after purchase bc she did this. Dealer thought they fixed a few times. Once we picked up and she did it at the stop light. The other times it happened when the tech was test driving it. After about 5 days they brought a 2011 rubi from Phoenix and told us they were sorry for the trouble.

I wish you luck with this.

SoDak Jeeper [QUOTE=sahara13;3099628]If I remember correctly some people on here have had the same issue and it was due to the key fob battery being dead. Something about the signal it sends to the jeep to allow it to start.


After reading your quote I began to realize that I didn't even try my other key. Panicked that I was going to have to pay a $100 deductible for the dealership to tell me that it was just my key, I quickly drove home from work to pick up my spare. I then drove down to the dealership and tried the spare key. Same response as last night. My alarm went off and one of the workers came jogging over thinking I was trying to steal one of their cars. I had to explain to him what happened.

They should have my car looked at by 3 this afternoon so I will be able to tell you guys what the problem was by then.

I went to do that and by the time I started to unplug the battery, the alarm stopped. I think it is on a 5 minute interval for the alarm.

Yeah Im from South Dakota. All South Dakotans call it pop. Thats normal here.
12-13-2012 11:21 AM
SoDak Jeeper Good point. I guess I mean its one month old to me. I looked at it and there is no visible damage to the body, frame or anything except a dent where the door hit the cowl. Also a small scratch on the interior side of the tailgate. Other than that, I can not find any damage to the vehicle.

1 Month Old and Broke

I purchased my 2008 Jeep JK 1 month ago with 18,500 miles. Yesterday I drove to the gas station to pick up some pop and when I got back in my Jeep it would not start. Completely mystified, I ran the Jeep through her gears (automatic) and tried to start her.... nothing. So I called my Dad (who I went to pick up the pop for) and told him I wouldn't be back for awhile cause my Jeep won't start. He came down to jump it so we tried that. After about an hour of trying to fix it at the gas station I called my warranty contract holder and got set up for a tow truck to bring my Jeep to the dealership. I left it there overnight and will find out today what is wrong with it.

The Jeep seemed to not want to start because it wasn't in park (however it was in park). I had full electrical power (or so it seemed to me). So I tried to start it in neutral and that didn't work.

Oh, and my alarm went off when I was working on it in the parking lot. All of a sudden my Key Fob would not turn off the panic or lock/unlock the doors. So, because I couldn't start my Jeep or use the Key Fob, I had to sit there waiting for the tow with my Jeep Alarm going off. It was actually kind of funny.

Anyways, I was wondering if anybody else was having there Jeep just randomly go out like mine did to me.

Thanks,

Eric
