2010 Wrangler Unlimited starting problems
 
I have a 2010 Sahara Unlimited, 5 spd and I am having intermittent starting problems. When it occurs, it starts and then shuts of in a cpl seconds and then it is very difficult to start but it doesn't happen all the time. If I take the key out of the ignition and then wait a cpl seconds sometime it will start right up and sometimes it takes several tries. If it doesn't start, it cranks twice then stops. It seems like something is shutting the ignition off, but I don't know what it could be? I have never had any major service done to it and I have owned it from new. Does anyone have any ideas? I have seen a thread with 2008 JK's having nearly the same issue but I have not seen anything for 2010?

Have you tried using your other key? Might have a bad key. Either way, I would take it to the dealer to be checked.

Sounds like it's the anti theft system. Something is either wrong with your key, or the sensor in the ignition.
