Left Stranded by Faulty Key Fob
Hello to all.
Just thought I would relay what happened to my wife yesterday when she was left stranded after the car wouldn't start.
She was out and about and when returned to the car with the kids, the car wouldn't start. Didn't help that it was 39 degrees Celsius in Perth yesterday.
Anyway, the ignition would turn on, every thing seemed normal but when she hit the starter button .... Nothing!
So she checked that the car was in Park, foot on the brake, park brake on, still nothing. Tried the lock/unlock x 3 technique, still the same.
She rang Jeep assist who advised her again to try the lock/unlock x 4, still nothing. Then they asked her to remove the start button and then use the fob as a key. At this point the car would start but then shut itself down almost straight away.
Jeep Assist then advised that it was likely a faulty key fob. So I ran out the spare fob to her and then the car started no probs.
Just thought that I would relay that story for general information should others be stuck the same way.
