Push button start

Yesterday I went to start up and when I pressed the start button nothing happened. Thought my foot wasn't on the brake hard enough so I tried again and still nothing. On the 3rd try it started. I don't think my remote battery is low because a few months back it did the same thing. Anyone else ever experience this?

Re: Push button start

If my iphone and keys are in the same pocket I can't unlock the doors or start the car.

Re: Push button start

This has been discussed here before, and seems not to be unusual. This is from the manual:
"If your RKE transmitter fails to operate from a normal
distance, check for these two conditions:
1. A weak battery in the transmitter. The expected life of
the battery is a minimum of three years.
2. Closeness to a radio transmitter such as a radio station
tower, airport transmitter, and some mobile or CB
radios."
Smart phones are constantly transmitting data, GPS, cell tower location, etc. This could be causing enough interference to hinder operation.

Re: Push button start

+1 - is the key in the same pocket as the remote? That'll be enough to interfere with it when you're locking/unlock/starting the car.

Unfortunetly this is not a Jeep thing, its an any car with key less entry problem
