07WK Not Starting
Hello all. I was traveling all day today and when I went to start my Jeep after getting fuel and... CLICK, nothing, nada. All lights were functioning and it would unlock/lock via remote, but no turnover (just a subtle "click").

What could be the issue? I have a brand new battery in the remote and in the Jeep. Has there been issues with the Sentry keys that I'm unaware of?

Most likely the starter. Did it eventually start or were you towed from the gas station. The starter is around the $120 range

Most likely it is the starter. It could possibly be a bad ground to the starter. Mine was acting the same way last week. However, when I went to look at the starter( under the drivers side ) their was a bolt that was loose and it wasn't grounding out the black wire that led to the starter properly. If thats not the case try giving the starter a couple of bangs with a rubber mallet, that will usually give the starter enough juice to start up a couple of more times.

I'll know more tomorrow. Thanks for the input; I'll be sure to post the solution once diagnosed and solved.

I was towed. Thank goodness for that GEICO gecko.

So how'd you make out? I'm having the same problem. I did tap the starter and it turned over for me, but I personally think it's a bad ground, or sensor issue. I believe the jeep is not reading it's in park. Keep us posted
