5.7Unlimited is just really nice
Got attacked by WK randomness!!

Jeep Randomness at it's finest: It's -20C here and i'm Driving downhill I go to the passing lane and gas it, gets up to 80 (speeds are in KM/H) then the gas just cuts off as if I hit a governer and would not increase, I get to the bottom of the hill where there is a slight turn and my steering is heavy, I notice i'm rolling to a stop and then notice the engine is OFF lol. The little red oil can light is the only one lit so I bump it to N and try to start it... no dice when I turn the key, doesn't make a sound or anything. I put it in park and try again, same thing. I turn everything off wait for literally 3 seconds and try again and it starts. I then continue on as if nothing happened, no lights or anything. I have yet to do the key trick and check for codes.

Just happy I made it to work on time

p.s. I don't think the cold has anything to do with it because the 3 preceeding days had been around -35 to -40 and I keep it plugged in over night and let it warm up for 10 mins.

Maybe you hit the key with your knee making it turn off.

Re: Got attacked by WK randomness!!

I guess jeeps must have a sense of humor. I've been driving and wiggled the f*ck out of the key to see if it would cut off but it didn't. That is pretty f*cking scary if you're on the hwy or going downhill.

You have an '09. I believe the ignition switch was reconfigured in '08 to fix the 'hit key with knee' problem.

Re: Got attacked by WK randomness!!

def it was scary...it is IMPOSSIBLE to hit your knee on the key in an 08+...unless you are 6'6"+ and sit up close.

Cam Position Sensor huh? I had the dealer look into that and they gave her a clean bill of health...no issues since so IDK WTF it was!
