That trip was a few months ago and since then the car has worked fine for a month or so. This problem does not happen everyday though. Most of the time the car starts just fine

Unfortunately, not that easy to tell the difference any more, particularly if it tends to always start on the second attempt. Well, you could stick your hand on a spark plug but I wouldn't recommend it--unless your brother in law volunteers.

Is there anything about length of setting off that seems to trigger the no start?
As in overnight, cold, etc. as if you can narrow that down, you would want to make sure your mechanic knows that it works just fine until left hours... or that it tends to come and go. The more you can give them the more likely you are to get help.

I'd still recommend seeing if it is storing fault codes--have you asked your dealer yet?

Don't be afraid or bashful about taking it back again and again, but anything you can do to narrow it down will help.

Nothing. Sometimes it is first thing in the morning. Sometimes at night. Sometimes i go to the supermarket park the car for 10 minutes and when try to start same problem happens. Sometimes after a long drive. It is random and does not happens all the time. I would say 1 out of 10 times i start the car. Yea i spoke to the dealer twice. He said no faulty codes whatsoever

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee cranking too long to start

Can i assume that given car is cranking and all electronics working that the problem is not the battery?

Took the car to the dealer again. They called Chrysler and they asked them to perform a few more tests. I will let you know the end result

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee cranking too long to start

There is a Service Bulletin for this issue on the Grand Cherokee (bulletin 18-054-14).

Has the dealer ruled out that it is not a bad cam sensor?
