Jeep is dead in my driveway :(

Just went out this morning to run a quick errand, came back to grab some towels to go give it a wash and when I went to get in, the Jeep wouldn't unlock the doors via the fob or sensing my hand.

I figured it was just a dead key fob battery, but I checked to see if the lights were blinking when I pressed it and they were. So then I had to use the key to get in. Then I try starting it and I get the christmas tree light nonsense for the second time I've had this Jeep. Not good.

Then I start getting these messages:





And now it won't start or turn off and is stuck in ACC... any ideas what to do next before getting this thing towed to a dealer?

Re: Jeep is dead in my driveway :(

That doesn't look too good. You could try unhooking battery cable wait a little while and then put it back on and see if that helps but if not get it towed.

Just disconnected the battery so it didn't drain it, not being able to get the power turned off...I'll try reconnecting in about a half hour to see if anything changes. But I don't foresee good things.

Was really hoping I was going to dodge a bullet with my Jeep, but I we'll see where it goes from here. Sad to say the least.

Re: Jeep is dead in my driveway :(

Oh no! I hope it isn't too serious or expen$ive.

I thought the message saying to press the clutch was interesting.

Purdue, it has 16Kmiles, see his pictures.

Good luck to you, pinetar.

Just over 16K and March '13 build date, if I remember correctly.

Thanks, echo.

Keeping my fingers crossed it's nothing major. Hoping to hear back from the service dept. today, but they said they may not get to it until Monday.

Why does it say press clutch? It's an automatic, right?

Yeah, it's automatic. Only flavor they come in.

I think it just glitched out, but who knows...

Will update when I find anything out.

Re: Jeep is dead in my driveway :(

Still nothing diagnosed from the dealer yet and it's already the end of the day.

Not a good feeling.
