2014 JK starting issues

I am having start-up issues with my new Jeep,at about 10,000 miles wife and I had to get towed back to dealer when it didn't start,then again tonite at 23,000 doing the same thing as before.Turned on the key engine starts and immediately dies,try again nothing,nada,won't even try to turn over,the only difference was tonite when waiting for tow truck I tried again it started now were on our way home and it's like brand new again,1st time it went in dealer said the computer software needed to be updated,whatever I never heard of that,anyways is anybody else having this kind of problem?Thanks in advance Kev oh yeah stopped for dinner did same thing but again got it started

sorry false alarm, I put a code reader on it and it said something about a key,thats when my wife fessed up about losing hers and had another made I guess with no chip or something anyways as embarrassing as this is it could of been worse had it actually made it back to the dealer and me flying off the handle at them. but that still doesn't explain the first time it happened anyways thought you might get a laugh outta this so I didn't delete this
c-ya

No chip in key? It wouldn't start at all not start and shut down. Most places that cut keys know about the chips in all new er cars.

I guess I would ask the wife were she got the key? The key may be programed to run the JK but it might have a problem. Just an idea not fact.

Are you sure about this? Our JKU will start and run about 5 seconds with a non-chip key, however it is a 2007.

Tried the extra pass key (aka no chip) no start period.

After you get the key/chip situation straightened out and you have a no start issue, disconnect the battery for a minute or two reconnect and try starting again.

I have a 2010 that has done this to me twice in 4 years and disconnecting/reconnecting the battery cleared it up both times.



I carry a couple of box end wrenches in the glove box at all times for this purpose.

It sounds like a bad key. If you have both masters then I think you can reprogram them yourself.
