have you tried resetting the throttle control. Theres a how to here somewhere

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Pasted from User's Guide:

"Emergency Key
Should the battery in the vehicle or the Key Fob transmitter go dead, there is an emergency key located in the Key Fob. To remove the emergency key, slide the button at the top of the Key Fob sideways with your thumb and then pull the key out with your other hand

The emergency key is used to unlock/lock the driver's door and the glove
compartment.

In case the Key Fob battery is dead, use the emergency key to open the door. If the vehicle is equipped with Keyless Enter-N-Go, remove the ENGINE
START/STOP button and start the vehicle by inserting the Key Fob in the
ignition and turning to the Start position."

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

thanks, makes sense ... I was not able to locate the last bulet in the electronic manual. However, I think it is correct. I found in the manual (DVD) that if you open with the emergency key, alarm will sound and to stop the alarm, you have to place the fob in ignition even fob battery is dead. This means that if you can disable the alarm then you should be able to start the car as well ... I am still puzzled what happened because the key works now ... maybe the key was too close to my blackberry ... for 30 min before I used it ...

This never happened to me before
Supposedly the jeep will not allow you to lock the doors from the outside as long as it senses there is a fob inside the car. Good idea to keep us from locking keys inside but gets rid of the spare fob idea. Must have been some sort of interference. Also there is a TSB for the proximity key system. Might need to be reflashed. As far as being next to blackberry there is no real software in the fob that would need time to reset after interference from the crackberry so if that was the problem then as soon as you pulled it out of your pocket it should have been good. My bet is something with the software of the proximity system. Check the TSB let us know the results.

I need to take a closer look but my suspicion is that there is a piece missing where the plastic back hooks fits. I have the Laredo X26 model.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

+1 on interference theory. One weekend we were in a new campground with our motorhome. We locked the door and went hiking. By the time we came back, we had new neighbors. Suddenly I couldn't unlock the motorhome with the key fob. At first I thought the battery died. Tried the spare fob, no luck. I figured out where the receiver was for the keyless entry, and if I got real close to it, and angled just right, I could get the fob to work. By the end of the weekend, the campground cleared out, and suddenly our key fobs were working great again. Have not had that problem since. I'm convinced that one of the rigs next to us had some sort of wifi or wireless setup (for lights and things) in their rig that was causing interference with our keyless entry.

Happened again today, came to the car from grocery store, opened the car with the remote key. entered the car and when I pushed the start button, I got in EVIC "Key not present" or something like this ... poped out the start button and started with the key in. I went and replaced the key battery. We'll see if it happens again. My theory is that maybe the remote button was pressed for long duration in the pocket and discharged the battery ...

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

Weird. So it recognized it to open the door, but not to start the engine.... Keep us posted. May be a problem with hardware/software in the car itself.

I had kind of the same problem with my V6. It didn't act like it was going to die, just didn't accelerate smooth from launch. They updated the PCM and now the take offs are smoother.

Thanks, This TSB is for vehicles build before August, my jeep is built September 9th. Next weekend, I will go to service to change the oil, I will have them check it as well.

Re: Any glitches after weeks of driving?

No joy yet....today when starting from the stop sign near my house, I couldn't get any response from the throttle, so I floored it and nothing.....nadda, almost like there is not connection between the pedal and the motor, finally after holding the pedal to the floor for a good 300 yards, it finally started to pull enough to get me out of the way of the car that was coming up behind me but "just barely". Love the car but I'm extremely disappointed with this problem. This is bad and I am very unhappy with my 7th Jeep purchase.
