Did you know that the JGC(2013) will not start with the

hood up using the remote start?

I raise the hood when I park my Jeep in my garage to discourage our cat from jumping up on it. Yesterday, I came out and hit the remote start button twice. The horn beeped once and the lights flashed but it did not start. Tried it again-no go. Then, I closed the hood, clicked the button twice and it beeped twice, flashed the lights and started right up.

Anybody else 'discovered' this yet?

Dan

Another angle. Remote start truck, then hit hood release. Shuts down engine. Learned this the other day.

Its a safety feature so no one will start the motor while your working on it !!
