Can someone offer their advice? I need help (AND I cannot get anyone at my local Jeep Dealership to help...go figure). Okay, so my problems started about 2 months ago. My GC all of a sudden started having problems starting up (to the point where it would make a clicking sound when I pushed to start) after about 2 tries it would finally start. It continued and worsened...So, I replaced the battery (had it tested and confirmed that battery was no longer good). Yay, I thought my problem was solved! A few days later, same thing started happening again....except it would start and then immediately cut off. Several tries later I would finally get it to start. Which bring me to my latest problem which happened yesterday, As I am leaving work I noticed my car would not unlock with the remote (I had to actually take the key out of the remote and manually unlock the door)- I put the key in the ignition and tried to start it- nothing happened and then my key wouldn't come out!!! It was stuck, I mean really stuck- I tried everything. Finally, someone jumped my car off and it finally started- the engine revved very loudly (and no one did it- it did that all on it's own). Can someone please tell me if they have had the same issue? I am sooooo angry with this car. I have had 5 cars (all different) and never have any problems with one of them!!!!! Is this a hard fix? Expensive??? HELP!! :confused
Have you had the alternator tested?
Have you tested how much draw is occurring when the car is off and the computer is asleep (turn off car with hood popped and wait "some time" for everything to sleep, then measure draw).
Sounds like either a bad battery (unlikely since just changed), alternator not charging or intermittently charging, or an abnormal power draw occurring when the engine is off.
