Question about 2008 Jeep Commander
Brand New 2008 Jeep Commander Overland - On occassion my brand new Commander will just not start on the initial attempt but usually after the 2nd or 3rd. The truck has been back to the dealership off and on for weeks now and they are unable to reproduce the problem and the OBD II system does not display any trouble codes. A month prior to this now frequent issue the truck "stalled" (went completely dead) on my wife while she was driving my daughter back from a Pediatricians appointment. The dealership stated that the "Stalling" issue was fixed from a software update issued by a recent TSB.
I've been researching the "no starting" issue and have discovered that several Commander owners across the country are experiencing my issue as well and unfortunately they are getting the same response from their dealerships.
Does anyone anywhere have any explaination or solution to this problem or are you a Commander owner going through this issue?
My 2007 Commander never stalled while running, but every couple weeks would fail to start. Turn the key and nothing would happen. After a couple hours or overnight it would always start again with no errors recorded. First time they replaced the shift box (auto) thinking the system was not showing in park. Second time they did nothing. Third time they replaced the keys and fob module thinking it wasn't being recognized. Fourth time it finally wouldn't start at the dealer either and they replaced the starter. So far so good and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Dave

I had the exact same problem with my 06 Commander and it turned out to be the starter. The mechanics at my dealer(Farrish in Fairfax VA) diagnosed it in a short period of time and gave me a new starter under warranty, problem solved.

Same thing here, 2008 commander, it never stalled but nothing would display on dash or not even a clicking noise when tried to crank her up, however the locks and alarm still worked on the fob just nothing happened when inserting the fob in the ignition, the truck is in the shop now so i will post the outcome later
