2005 Jeep security problems
Hi I have a 2005 WK 3.7. I drove it and and came back an hr later and it started then turned off after a second or two. And the red security light flashed. I did this a numerous times and now it wont even start. I Am not if the computer is locked or if i need to reprogram the key or what and suggestions would be welcome!

The WCM forgot your Key. This happened to me a few times. Unplug your battery and put in back on. Keep doing this until it starts back up. What you will have to do is go to the dealership and get the WCM reprogrammed. It may cost you something.

Ok is this something a locksmith can do?

Wireless control modules are fairly common failures and they exhibit all your symptoms, get it towed to the dealer as it will need to be programmed if its replaced.
