    Jeep won't start

    Seriously what the hell is going on? It's like all of a sudden this jeep has gotten cursed. I turned the car on this morning, drove to the bank and now I move the ignition to start and nothing, it won't crank. Disconnected the batteries and still nothing. Battery meter on the Genesis system show the batteries as full so it is not that. Any ideas???

    Had the same thing happen on my TJ. Took me forever to figure it out. It was an ignition actuator. Basically a part that runs between the key and ignition switch. Picked up a new one at the parts store for $45-ish. Easy enough fix. I hear it's a pretty common issue

    Does this happen with both keys? I remember Eddie saying he had one of his keys work for everything but actually starting the jeep as it ended up not syncing with the jeep anymore.

    The starters seem to be prone to going out as well. I had that happen a couple years back.

    Yeah I think they call it the "sentry key". But even if you don't have the chip in the key it will let you start the Jeep up but it will turn off after a second or two.

    Currently at the dealership,had to tow it, unfortunately it decided to do this, at the bank on my way to work and not at my house so I couldn't test with the other key

    Tech checked it, according to him the ignition fuse blew, I'm not sure if it is one on the dash because when they gave me the jeep back, the side of the dash by the font passenger speaker was unset by the odb2 port. And the ones on the engine bay were fine since that was the first place I checked...

    Wonder what would cause that to blow? Before this happened, were you using any kind of aftermarket accessories that you don't normally use?

    wouldn't be caused by the dual battery setup?

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.
