HELP! Jeep doesn't want to start when it's hot/sunny

So yea, as soon as we get a sunny, warm day my jeep doesn't want to start. It turns over but doesn't "fire". It will just turn and turn and turn until I stop and try again...but only when its sunny! The battery has been checked, the starter is fine, the oil and filter are fresh, I'm really at a loss here...Thoughts?

Haven't had this problem on my jeep (its only a year old) but common problem I've had on other cars. Sounds like the crank shaft position sensor.

Rear camera system though navigation

I have a 2013 patriot, that did not come with a rear camera back up system. Anyone know if there is one that can be installed though the navigation screen? I do not want to purchase one that attached to the rear license plate with the small LED screen to mount.. Thanks

you should be under warranty, so I would take it to the dealer, but as my post says above 99% sure its the crank shaft position sensor. That is a very tale tell sign of it going bad.
