The battery on my 2013 JK Sahara died today. We replaced the battery, but now the security system thinks the vehicle has been stolen. Initially it started and then stalled. Now it won't even turn over. I've tried multiple methods to reset security, but so far none of them have worked. Does anyone have the definitive answer? Or am I stuck towing it to a dealership?

Can you elaborate on what it means the Jeep thinks it’s stolen? Are you getting a red light, Jeep runs for 3 seconds and stops?

Try taking BOTH battery cables off, touching the together for about a minute and reconnecting. That will remove any memory and reset the computer. You will have to reprogram all your radio,clock and stuff like that though.
