Runaway Starter 2012 Grand Cherokee

I have a 2012 Grand Cherokee, and occasionally when I push the start button, the starter engages and won't stop. The vehicle doesn't start and the engine shutters like it's misfiring (high and low pitch from the starter). The only way I can get the starter to shut off is to shift into gear. It usually starts fine after I put it back in park (sometimes takes 2-3 tries). Pressing the start button does nothing...it just continues to crank. Anyone else have this happen?

Re: Runaway Starter 2012 Grand Cherokee

The dealership is looking into it...they've heard of it happening, just not on a 2012. They're going to try some sort of flash update to see if it fixes it. Hasn't happened again since the first post. The biggest problem with my issue is that when I press the stop button, it does nothing...have to put it in gear to get it to stop. Makes me scared to use the remote start when I'm not near the vehicle.
