2011 JK Wrangler won't start in the cold

Hi! New to this forum but super frustrated with all mechanics at this point. My car never has issues starting until it gets cold. Mornings when it is 20 and below it will not start. This started happening last winter. I got a new battery last winter but the issue still kept happening. When I insert the key everything turns on, besides the car. As soon as I connect the jumper cables the car starts right away. I had to get the car towed twice last winter, still no one car figure out what is wrong with it. Please help!

Hey shanklinashley8,

I am sorry to hear about your recent experience with your Wrangler. I could not find any TSBs pertaining to your vehicle. Have you considered going to a certified FCA dealership for a formal diagnosis?

Ryan,

Have not taken it to a dealership yet- defiantly will be my last resort considering the cost to even get it looked at. Super bummed about the car, my old P.O.S. 93 Exploder never failed to start on cold mornings.

This morning was the same issue with my Jeep- temps a little higher today 32 and it still did not start, put it in neutral and it started right up! In Virginia- waiting for this big storm to hit, just hope I can rely on my car.
Hey shanklinashley8,

I understand your financial hesitation in taking the vehicle to a certified FCA dealership. However, I do believe that is the best way to have the vehicle diagnosed. Please private message me if you have any further questions.
