Battery/electrical/starter/alternator help

Hey there,

I went to my car this morning, both of my keys would not electronically unlock the doors. I called the dealer he said to disconnect the battery for 5 mins. I did that and it worked but than the clock would not go on and the jeep would not start. Jeep is a 4.7 2006 wk laredo.

A few days ago I was also getting supposedly garbage signals tgat transmission was over temp. We checked, it wasn't. When I started the jeep now it did a noise for 5 seconds like a small whistle...it would not start. All this could have started a few weeks ago when I gave a friend a 10 minute boost. ..the day after I got that tranny message...what could it be now...im waiting for a tow truck. Thanks

Re: Battery/electrical/starter/alternator help

Since the WK seems to be very sensitive on the battery voltage, i would let the battery and charging system be checked. I know you said that you changed the battery some time ago, but i would still do this check.

Re: Battery/electrical/starter/alternator help

Buddy, you're right. I had it towed, and all electicals checked, it ended up just needing a battery charge! Probably was drained trying to start a friend's dead battery fir 10 mins. It costed 200$ including the tow and another 220 to my crappy dealer. When I brought it to the dealer I asked for the transmission over temp message to be checked, an oil change and an all around inspection. Well they forgot the inspection even though I told the transmission to check the battery. Instead they did a cooler line flush which revealed nothing. Should I call the dealer and speak to management? If they had nit forgotten the normal inspection this would not have happened as they would have seen the battery was drained? ...

Yes, I would agree that services asked for and promised but not delivered is worthy of notifying management. Hopefully they didn't charge you for what they did that didn't need done!
