08 Grand overland Unlock problems and intermintent start/power.
 
Hey I have a 08 Grand cherokee Overland and when I press the unlock on both key fobs nothing happens no unlock and batteries are good in both remotes. Then most of the time it works fine....any ideas. Also have had starting issues when i go to start it turn key no lights on dash, completely dead. Try again has power but no start, pulled key out turned again nothing then all of a sudden starts by itself after a few seconds. Weird also main battery is new 2 months old.

Thanks

I call it the "key fob Gremlin"...search around on here...but what I found to work was moving the battery inside the fob. for some reason the contact was not proper and it works everytime. IDK about the power issue, again Gremlins. My 08 has shut off once on the freeway while I was going 80!! And I had a amp/sub issue last week...neg terminal reset worked for me...tried one in a while? Disconnect - terminal and step on brake for 30 secs. GL

Seen this technique before what does it do exactly?? Is it the same as touching pos n neg together?

From what I have read it is the same...but according to guys I trust on here, that is the "proper" way to reset our WK's :)
