ONE MORNING I TRIED TO TURN ON MY VEHICLE AND IT WOULD NOT START. GOT A FRIEND TO COME OUT TO TRY AND JUMP START IT AND AFTER ABOUT 30 MIN IT WAS SUCCESSFUL. TWO DAYS LATER I HAD THE SAME ISSUE. TRIED TO JUMP THE CAR AGAIN WITH NO SUCCESS. REPLACED THE BATTERY BUT DID NOT HELP. ALL THE ELECTRICAL COMPONEMTS INSIDE THE CAR (RADIO,LIGHTS,ECT) WERE STILL FUNCTIONAL BUT ENGINE WOULD NOT START OR EVEN MAKE A SOUND LIKE IT WAS ATTEMPTING TO START. JEEP WAS TOWED TO A LOCAL MECHANIC AND HE COULD NOT FIGURE OUT THE ISSUE AFTER 1.5 WEEKS OF TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS WRONG. I THEN TOWED IT TO A JEEP DEALERSHIP AND HE STATED THAT HE DIDNT KNOW WHAT WAS WRONG WITH IT. HE REMOVED THE PLASTIC COVERINGS OVER THE ENGINE AND STATED THEY ARE JUST FOR LOOKS AND DONT NEED TO BE THERE AND CLEANED SOME WIRES NEAR THE DRIVERS SIDE WHEEL WELL AND THE VEHICLE WAS ABLE TO START. LATER WHILE DRIVING MY JEEP STARTED TO ACT STRANGE. RANDOMLY ALL THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH BOARD WOULD TURN ON, THE GUAGES WENT ALL THE WAY TO ZERO THEN BACK UP TO NORMAL THE RADIO WOULD SHUT OFF AND TURN BACK ON AND THE CAR WOULD FEEL LIKE IT WAS ABOUT TO STALL. LATER, THE SAME THING HAPPENED EXCEPT THIS TIME THE LIGHTS STAYED ON ENGINE WAS STILL RUNNING BUT COULD NOT ACCELERATE MY VEHICLE AND POWER STEERING WENT OUT. I THEN WOULD HAVE TO PULL MY JEEP TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD TURN IT OFF LET IT SET FOR A LITTLE THEN IT WOULD START BACK UP FINE. THIS HAPPENED ABOUT 5 TIMES OVER THE COURSE OF A COUPLE WEEKS. WHEN IT WASNT HAPPENING AND I WAS DRIVING THE JEEP AROUND NORMALLY THE CHECK BATTERY LIGHT WOULD ALWAYS TURN ON AFTER ABOUT 5 TO 10 MIN AFTER DRIVIMG THE VEHICLE. OCCASIONALLY THE CHECK OIL LIGHT WILL ALSO TURN ON. I HAVE STILL FOUMD MP SOLUTION TO THESE PROBLEMS AMD IT CONTINUES TO HAPPEN. IT MAKES IT VERY UNSAFE TO DROVE ESPECIALLY ON THE HIGHWAY AND IN CONGESTED AREAS DUE TO VEHICLE RANDOMLY NOT WORKING.

WCM/SCREEM MODULE. CAR WOULD NOT START. WAITED AND HOUR THEN IT STARTED. CAR IS LEAVING ME STRANDED. I HAD JUST TURN VEHICLE OF TO DROP A O PACKAGE AND CAR WOULD NOT START. CALLED TOW TRUCK AND WHILE WAITING TIRED SEVERAL TIMES. COULD SEE I HAD EL ECTRICITY SO IT WAS NOT BATTERY. BUT STARTED WOULD NOT CRANK. AFTER AN HOUR IF CLICKING REMOTE KEY LOCKS ON AND OFF AND TRYING TO START VEHICLE IT CRANKED. READ ON LINE THIS WCM/SCREEM ISSUE, BUT SEE NO RECALLS ON FIXING IT. IT'S A PROBLEM IF YOU ARE NOT IN A SAFE AREA AND CAN'T START CAR.
