    I have been dealing with similar symptoms on my 2000 lesabre. Car starts and runs fine I will park it and when I return to leave and car won't start. I have had the car towed two different times to two different repair shops. Both repair shops could not isolate problem, as the car will just start, and run fine, by the time it gets to the shop. I have replaced battery and alternator just to eliminate them as suspects. I have recently observed on trips over 100 miles when car has started that while driving the car is running fine all of a sudden I will lose radio, all the dash warning lights luminate and gas gauge stops functioning, but car still runs fine until I shut it off. I hope someone could shed some possible light on this behavior. I have not tried the slamming of the car trunk to get it to run but will try that in future. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

My 2000 LeSabre Limited occasionally failed to start. Not a click, which was a tip off, disconncted the battery and cleaned all wires and posts at the starter and problem has not reappeared..

My fob and keyless entry system doesn't work correctly sometimes it activates and sometimes it just doesn't. also activate the immobilizer randomly, any ideas?


Based on all the info you have provided I think you need a professional to get involved here, I am not willing to "GUESS" what might be the issue or issues (more likely more than one).
Good luck

Possible solution - This happened to me and my battery was dead in my key fob and also I needed an ignition switch because a piece on it was broken which therefore wouldn't turn to start the engine.

Comfort access failure.


Sounds like they might have missed plugging the door harness in to the body, or maybe left a ground unhooked.

Remote keyless entry will not unlock vehicle, but interior elec power works, NO ENGINE!


I had the same problem with my 2007 Sahara Unlimited. I'll make a long story as short as possible. For a number of years my son ran a Chrysler / Jeep dealership and I contacted him (I bought my Jeep from him before he got out of the business) and he told me this is a sporadic problem with the Wrangler line. To the point of calling him I had tried everything and nothing worked...insert key, turn, nothing...all electrical worked, lights, power windows, radio, etc, etc. He told me to disconnect the negative power connection on the battery for a second or two then re-attach. Insert key, engine starts, everything works as advertised.

Essentially, my son told me this "re-boots" the system. For whatever, and to his knowledge, never explained by Jeep, this fix works but no idea as to why it happens in the first place.

Hope this is of some help...though I suggest that there may be more "fixes" to this problem.

Regards...

300M electrical issue


this is a tuff one.. it can be mind bolgeling wiil try to help on this on but you might not have no choice but to take it to the dealer and let them reprogram you key and keyless entry remote. lets start with that first. you already replaced your bmc and junction box . so your half way there. i think it the remote now i might be wrong . and you might not want to spend the 140 or 160 to have this done.but it might be hte only fix. good luck....
