    HELP! 2015 JKUR HOTOIL light, jeep won’t turn on

    Wheeling up here in wind rock I got the HOTOIL message in the dash with all the bells. Turned the Jeep off and now it won’t turn back on. I get all the dash lights, the hot oil message is still there but never turns over. Anyone heard of this happening before??

    Disconnect the battery for a couple of minutes, then try. You have checked the oil, right?

    Sounds like you were in 4hi when you should've been in 4lo? Once the tranny and t-case cool off you should be fine.

    Happened to ours a couple weeks ago being in 4HI, 'HOT OIL' light was flashing. We shut it off, put it in 4LO and all was good. I was told that that particular indicator is for trans fluid, sure enough we had a stored code for 'Trans overtemp.' So make sure your fluid is full also. As far as it not starting, not sure about that one.

    Checked the oil, even put in a new battery thinking it was dead.

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.
