Anybody else had this and if so, what was the cause?
It can be many things , like the battery or the Jeep OBD-II got stuck in a phase loop , causing it to lock up, which is the reason why it worked after you restarted the Jeep. This time it was the windows next time might be something else, this is how our Jeep's computer gets affected with voltage spikes and or CAN BUS and or OBD-II Errors. If the battery is the stock battery , I suggest you replace it,, what you most likely expierenced is the starting signs of the battery going south , maybe a bad cell in the battery. The stock battery is known to fail pre-maturely. sometimes there is enough power for all the lighting and accessories , but not enough for the engines ECU to start, and prohibiting the engine to turn over.
