Does anyone have any advice on how to get my remote car starter to work again? On the display panal it reads starter deactivated hood latch open. I opened and closed my hood.. it still is not working. I have no idea why all of a sudden my remote starter is not working.

Welcome to JeepGarage!!

That happened once to me about one month ago and it has not happened since. You might need a to get it checkout by your dealer. It also might just be the cold weather playing tricks on your jeep.

Re: Jeep Cherokee 2012

Thank you for reply.. I guess I will have to do just that and bring it into the dealership. My guess is that I may have deactivated it somehow as on my dash window it reads that it is deactivated hood latch open.. However, my hood latch is not open. bummed as I am sure I will sit for a few hours at the dealership.

Cj - civilian jeep

Tj. -1997-2009( I think ...)
Xj
Zj
Wj
WK
Wk2
Xk 2006-2010
They are all model designations. That's all
They can use the same name " grand Cherokee " but different years have different letter names ( zj, wj, wk,wk2)
Xj are all Cherokees
Xk are commanders
Cj8 is a scrambler
Wranglers were cj, Yj, tj , LJ or tjl and jk
SRT is a division of jeep I don't exactly know what it stands for but someone on here will_____Street and Racing Technology

Sorry if its confusing hope this helps
