Stall after start
My 2011 GC (V6 Laredo) is in the shop today...been having an intermittent problem where the vehicle stalls after starting and then will not start unless the key position is cycled to off and then back on. No MFL but when the car would not start and the security system light flashed. We have had problems with one of the key fobs, but I replaced the battery on it twice and we reported the problem to the dealer and they could not find any faults.

Will report on what the dealer comes up with but I was just curious if anyone else has had this issue.

Re: Stall after start
sounds like a wcm(wireless control module) failure

Re: Stall after start
The dealer replaced both keys but nothing in the vehicle. Said that this sometimes happens. I'm a little baffled by key I could see but two bad keys at the same time?

Re: Stall after start
Had another stall after start, although this one was after a long drive (6 hours with two stops) and it stalled when I started the vehicle soon after parking in the garage. Should have seen it coming, the engine didn't quite seem to be idling as smoothly as it usually does. No lights and it started up fine afterwards. Another thing I need to watch for now.

Really like this vehicle but I never had these problems with my first year build Toyota Highlander...:(

Re: Stall after start
Had this happen again today...needed to start and move right away and I started the vehicle and went into drive right away and it stalled. Frustrating because I can't make it happen on demand so I'm pretty sure that the dealer can't do much.

Would there be codes stored if there are no warning lights or CEL/MFLs?

Re: Stall after start
Hi Hammer, I have been having the exact same problem with v6 WK2. It started intermittantly stalling after startup a couple months ago. It seems to consistantly happen about a few times a week. No warnings or CEL. As far as the jeep is concerned, it thinks the car is still running. Have you had any updates on your situation?

Re: Stall after start
This happens on my 2013 v6 as well. I had the dealer look at it but they could not reproduce. They cleared the codes just in case, but it has happened a few times since. I plan on taking it back, but am compiling a list of other issues (A/C, etc) before I go back.

Re: Stall after start
I have joined the club. Have a 2011 Laredo. About a month ago it has stalled when pressing the start button. No troubles driving but a few times a week when going to start the car it tries to turn over then stalls. Need to cycle the on/off button to off then it starts right up the second time. I have nearly 24,000 miles. First real issue.

Re: Stall after start
Hey glad I found this post because I am having the same issue on my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee X package 3.6 V6 engine. Dealer cant reproduce the issue and its frustrating. This happens once or twice per week. Have to cycle the truck off before it can start again

Re: Stall after start
Pissible fix for you... After some research it looks like the tpim needs to be replaced. I believe it runs about $1300

Re: Stall after start
