    Jeep would not start

    So leaving my 3rd shift job this morning my jeep would turn over then shut off after a few seconds. After a few failed attempts I was forced to google the situation. I noticed a red light above the temp gauge on dash and found an article stating that the key possibly wasn't communicating with the computer to lift hood and pull a white "ignition" fuse that was rather large. Thought what more do I have to loose!!!.....pulled it up waiting roughly 10 seconds and reinserted....turned ignition over and...boom... Jeep started and stayed running...no other issues. I have never heard of this before and have never had such a issue with any other vehicles. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Have you ever had this issue and if so, could you explain what may have caused this? Thanks

    I've had one of my 2 key no longer be recognized by my Jeep and while it would open the doors and get the dash lights on, my Jeep wouldn't start. I ended up needing to go to the dealership to have my key synced with my jeep again. Glad to hear you were able to fix your problem just by pulling a fuse.

    For future reference, could you post up a pic or the number of the fuse you pulled?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
