1222 - so do you get a click, but nothing? If you have the dreaded click no start problem, then one or some combination of the following should work:
1. Put it in Neutral and it should start
2. Put it in Neutral then back to Park and it should start
3. Push up on it in Park and maybe it will start.
I've had success with all three, but #1 seems to be the most common solution.
If you canít get it to start from one of the above items then itís not likely the same problem, though I know of one person that had this problem and could not get it to start at all and just took it to the dealer and they did #2 below and fixed it.
If one/all of the above solutions work then you have the problem. I just dropped my Jeep off at the dealership and one of my items to fix was this issue. They are very familiar with this problem and said they tried two things with their customers:
1. Make a better ground from the battery to body to engine to transmission
2. Replace the Transmission Range Sensor.
They said they have tried both, and have had customers return with the better ground solution, and never had a customer return with the new range sensor. They recommend a new range sensor, which for me was free because I'm still under my 3/36,000 warrantee.
The repair order did not show the cost, just parts:
4659677AC - Sensor - Manual Valve Lever
68055894AA - Fluid
5010884AA - Sealer
68059549AA - Filter - Transmission oil (I asked them to replace the filter since they had the transmission opened up) $26.66 cost to me.
I know what you mean about not trusting your Jeep until itís fixed. If you want any more info/theories on this particular issue I can add them. Iíve been following it for a while as I have (hopefully now fixed) this problem for the last 6 months.
