SOURCE: won't open my door when

can you manually unlock the lock and open the door?? Is it more than one door or just one specific door? If its just one door, yourcactuator inside the door may be bad or you have a wire issue. If its all the doors, more than likely you blew a fuse or a relay(id say fuse)

SOURCE: the van won't start.

You need to at the very least charge the battery, and worst case, yo need to replace it-a digital voltage meter (they cost $15) can be used to measure voltage, it needs to be at least 12.4 volts, engine off. If it is lower, get someone to remove it, and take it to a commercial auto parts store who will charge it for free, so that they can load test it to see if it is viable.

SOURCE: Windows won't go up our down power door locks

It may be as simple as reprogramming your system. There is a way to re-synch your keys to the system. Use the instructions at:

That vehicle had a lot of problems with the PCM "Power Control Module" and that may be your problem.

Jeep patriot won't crank

I had this exact same issue w/ my 08 Patriot. Had it towed the first time and mechanic changed the starter. Worked for about a week, then same issue. Found that moving the vehicle, even just a couple of inches, or putting in neutral helped start it. Issue stopped once weather warmed up. This all occurred last March (2014).

Until two weeks ago that is. Horn stopped working so I started looking for any corroded connections. I came across some relays under the left headlight. When I pulled them out, I found two had corroded pins. One was so bad that there was no pin left. It had barely been making a connection before I pulled it and now it wasn't going to at all. The wires to that pin were completely shot too. And guess what, car wouldn't start! Same symptoms as in March.

I ended up going to my parts recycling place and piucked up the whole relay enclosure w/ 4 relays and about a foot of the wiring. I used my smallest watch screw driver to carefully remove the spade connector from the recycled relay enclosure. The corroded connector in my Jeep completely destroyed its slot. I ended up having to gently remove the other spade connectors for the relay and relocated the surviving spade connectors to an open/unused location (luckily there were 2 open spots) and splicing in the salvaged connector. I used some dielectric grease on all of the relay slots, before putting everything back together, and was able to relocate the entire enclosure up next to the fuse enclosure (as recommended by by someone in anothe post. I apologize for not being able to find the link to it at the moment).

It's been working well for just over two weeks now. I hope this helps someone else.

BTW - horn turned out to be dead and I just ended up replacing it. Not related to the relays at all.

Remote key for 2007 jeep patriot

Should say in your manual. If not most can be reset by standing within 2-4 feet from engine compartment and depressing two buttons on remote. Should hear an audible beep or doors should lock. Hope this helps!
