    I have the same problem but have gone through a series of elimination battery cables, wires from the alternator, and starter wire clip. and ground around the engine compartment. I have also used graphite to lubricate the locks and have just had the started diagnosed as the culprit. I hope this works. when I try to start the car it will be as though ther is no battery no click no groan no trying at all, NOTHING. After about ten minutes to thirty minutes the car will usually start. When the radio is played in the accessories position for ten minutes the same thing happens the car wont start until I let it set for ten to thirty minutes and away it goes

check battery terminals are tight
if these are both ok then start to look at the starter motor

Power Doors are not working properly.


If the relay was at fault none of the doors would work at all. I suggest you may have defective door lock actuator motors and stick door latches, they are very prone to this kind of failure if the door latch gets hard to activate from dirt or corrosion. Make the door latches move freely.

Lights flickering


The Lights Flickering is most likely a defective Voltage regulator in the Alternator. Use a Volt meter to determine this.. I think its isolated from the door locks.. Im not good on door locks.. So not much help there.. But hope what lil bit I do know helped ya. thankx

Jeep alarm will not turn off


The ignition security on/off is located at the trunk lock. unlock and lock rear gate and the alarm will turn off. My jeep sat in my drive for a month before a jeep tech told me this. It still triggers the security sometimes when I unlock the passenger door with the key and I go straight to the rear gate lock and it shuts off instantly.
