bad starter or what?

2014 Jeep got towed yesterday to dealer for a no crank...battery seemed to be hot and sounds like I could hear the starter clicking under the jeep...it did this to me before and I bumper the start button a couple times and it turned over as normal...

Re: bad starter or what?

When this issue happened did you try to remote start the vehicle? There can be a instance when the brake booster is low on vacuum and the brake pedal can be firm and a cold start. If you don't push hard enough to make the brake switch the vehicle will NOT start.

Re: bad starter or what?

tried remote start etc...it went thru the full on functions like the seat move back and everything...turns out the big starter wire was loose, he put locktite on the threads and retightened it...said he had never seen that before but it had nearly turned all the way off...my question is if that had happened and the starter wire fell off and on to something with a good ground I could see this burning the vehicle up...just something to think about...less that 20k miles

Very true, and completely unacceptable from FCA.
