2011 Grand Cherokee red light on & wont start

Hello all, hope you can provide some feedback... I drove my car today to my sis house, after an hour I tried to leave, Key fob would not unlock doors, or make any alarm off sounds. I took the emergency key out and opened the door, there was a message on the dashboard as usual, to press the brake and then press the start button.... also i noticed the red light for the car not recognizing the fob key is on too. I tried turning on by pressing the start and nothing. I inserted the fob key instead and still nothing. This is a simple Laredo. I noticed the reading lights turn on, also the headlights, i can move my seat using the electric buttons on the side of the seat. One thing I also noticed is that the emergency lights turn on, but there is no indication on the panel that they are on. Whats going on? I went home and picked up the second key fob and still nothing. I put a new battery on the fob and nothing It just wont turn on.

Re: 2011 Grand Cherokee red light on & wont start

So after 6 hours at the dealer they told me is the WIN module, I am reading on different sites that this may be a common issue with this car , right now i have to use my key to open my door, alarm on/off does not work at all. I have to plug in the key fob in order to start the car.

I also read that for some people the car just stalls as they are driving so now I am scared, the way and speed people drive in Miami you do not want your car stalling anywhere... also some people change the WIN module only to find out they have to replace the TPIM.... this is all Chinese for me but still expensive....

My solution is to have a wrench in my car in case I need to unplug the battery and plug back in until I can come up with the $$$
