This is something that's happened twice, over a period of time, and I have no clue as to why, as it clears itself on my 2004 Overland after a few tries. I insert and turn the key and a few lights appear on the dash.... It doesn't start, not even a click of the starter...it's stuck in gear, nothing else, aside of a few lights on the dash. As I turn the key on and off...gradually other things start up, light up and turn on gradually ( radio, fans, dash lights etc.) Eventually all's back to normal...it starts, and I cannot replicate the problem.
I was wondering if the chip in the key could be the cause or the keyswitch itself. If it does it again I'll try another key, till then I have no idea. Has anyone else ever come across this anomaly
