Cherokee doesn't start

Cherokee started acting up; giving all sorts of error messages; service shifter, transmission overtemp, tire pressure, etc, etc. Than the next day it wouldn't start (Sat, 11/19). Battery voltage was good, tried jump starting and it made no difference, so we had it towed to the dealership.

On Monday they didn't even get it recorded in their computer system. Called Tuesday and they said it was the starter, which they had to order. After the starter they said it was the battery, still no Joy. Wednesday, 12/9 they said it was all done except for one service bulletin. Friday, 12/11 they're now getting a transmission error code. Today, Wed 12/16 they report that they can't even talk to the transmission and it won't start again.

I knew all along that this was a problem with the Start/Stop system in the transmission, not a starter or battery, but it took them a month to figure that out!

Re: Cherokee doesn't start

It took six weeks, but they finally discovered the transmission computer module had died. Since I've gotten the vehicle back it's been running great!
