Remote start aborted - Hood ajar

After six visits to resolve my fobik/PEM/WIN issues the remote start is being aborted because it senses the hood is open. Verifying the hood is properly closed, several times, doesn't change anything. There's also something sliding back and forth, and rattling over bumps, somewhere in the passenger dash area towards the windshield.

I'm starting to have a love/hate relationship with this Jeep.

My Overland had the same issue with "Hood Ajar". Have the dealer reload the software. I have been trouble free for more then a week.

I have heard that same sliding noise and have not been able to isolate it. At first I thought it was something I had placed in the glove box but I still heard it even after emptying that area.

Anyone else hearing that besides zer0kid and me?

It is the empty beer bottles the workers hid while building the Jeeps on the Jefferson assembly line.
