Press Clutch to Start? 2015 JGC

Today I had a message pop up in the EVIC that stated "Press clutch and push button to start" causing my Jeep to be temporarily unable to start. I'm assuming because I don't have a clutch to press and the computer was confused. After sitting for a few minutes went to start again and got the normal "Press break..." message. Now my check engine light is on as a result. Has anyone seen this occur before and any potential issues starting? This is a 2015 High Altitude EcoDiesel, I upgraded from a troublesome 2014 Overland EcoDiesel and up to this point the 2015 has been a major improvement but now I'm not so sure...ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1446581287.417525.jpg

Sounds like your JGC thinks it's a stick shift or the computer is getting mixed up with a stick shift Challenger somehow.

Re: Press Clutch to Start? 2015 JGC

Okay, now this is happening but CEL has gone out. Must have some sort of electrical gremlin. When I use my left blinker it says my rear hatch is open and interior lights come on with the tailgate open message showing in EVIC...also can't remote start because of the flashers somehow getting crossed with the tailgate being opened ???
