I just purchased a 2018 jk with 5k miles and doesnt start every once in a while, probably every 5 days or so. What i have to do to turn it on is wait about half an hour or so and then the jeep starts no problem, and every time i have this issue i move the shifter around just to make sure its on park. Sure its not the battery or the starter, i had them both tested. Ive taken it to the dealer but as usual they cant duplicate anything so theyre helpless. Any ideas anyone please help me out thanks.

I had a similar situation where after driving for a while and the engine and transmission got up to operating temps, then after I turned the Jeep off it would not start until the transmission temp cooled down. Problem was a faulty temperature sensor in the harness for the transmission. There is a Technical Service Bulletin about this listed depending on your VIN. The dealer replaced the part per the TSB and I have not had the issue since.
