The Jeep Acted Funny Today
So I double park on 15th Street to set the phone up with uConnect and I put on my hazards, turn off the lights, and shut off the Jeep. After I finish pairing the phone, I go to start up the Jeep and it wont start. I turn the key, you hear it try to start and nothing happens except all the lights (on the dash, and the outside lights (h/l, fogs, parking lights) flash, also the Mygig Flashes a white screen. So I take the key out, open the door to draw out the power so the Nav is off, say a few curse words, then try again. The Jeep then does the slow crank start, it did the same sound Klutch does when he thinks "uhhhhhhhhhh" :D, then the Jeep fired up.

After it fired up, I got a Service 4WD System message on the EVIC.

Any ideas?

I think my starter is going, this isnt the first time the Jeep didnt want to start and did a slow crank but it is the first time all the lights flashed like that.

sounds like a warranty concern ;)

I am sorry I dont have anything better to add... without codes or having the car any more would be nothing but letters on a screen and not be worth anything.

Battery? Mine would sometimes take 3-4 seconds to start before I replaced it. Sometimes I would get the airbag light/service 4WD etc warning messages.
When the battery went on my old 4.7 WJ, all the dash lights started flashing.

He still have a "new" car. A battery should be able to sit in the cold for 4-5 days with out no problems.

Get a new battery. It will fix all your problems including the 4WD light.

It sounds like the battery BUT it SHOULDN'T be the battery as your truck is what like less than a year old? I still have the stocker and its sat for over 2-3 days and started no problem.

I know we have different crank amperage requirements and all, but your battery should have no probs yet haha, good for at least 3-4 years under normal conditions. Starter could be it, or wiring as mentioned above. Dealer plug in should solve the problem though, keep us posted! Curious to hear what it was.
