Need more info like when you say it won't start, Does it spin over? Is the engine turning over? If not, and a jump start does work, Then it is the Battery or the post connections. That's it! If it does not turn over with a jump then it will be the starter or ignition switch. If u can get to the starter, it can be forced on with a small jumper from the large post to the small stud (usually red)

If it is the horn, pull the horn fuse or relay. Does the vehicle start and drive, ok? Of course, pulling the fuse or relay isn't the proper fix. I'm just talking about killing the horn, where applicable.

The first thing I would check is the fuse for the horn. If it's blown, it's a cheap and easy fix. If you have the user's manual for the vehicle, it should show you the location of the fuse for the horn. Pull it, and check to see if it's blown. Aside from that, it could be that they disconneccted it below the hood. A Chilton's manual or a quick online search will help you locate the horn connection between your steering column and the horn itself. If there's a wire unplugged, just plug it back in. If both of those yeild no results, I'd find another dealership, or a trustworthy mechanic to help you diagnose.

I would first check that there is not a split in one of the turbo hoses or one of the hose clips has come loose, as you description sounds like a loss of turbo boost. Does it blow a lot of black smoke?

You probably aren't going to believe this but the first thing to do is remove and clean up your battery posts and terminals. A momentary disconnect will drive the dash nuts!
Easy to do and hopefully repairs it.

Your radio may have two power feeds. Check the fuses. Make sure they all have voltage. Try taking off the battery cable again. Seems to help with other problems. See forum.

I had that same problem on a trans years ago, had to go to neutral and back to drive to get drive. I just delt with it in that manner. It doesn't do any harm to the trans at all doing that. Your best getting a specialist do a diagnostic on your trans eventually.

2005 WK grand, USA<> right in USA>? gas engine sure.
all modern jeeps can do that. 1988 to now.. (exceptions dont apply here)
all vacuum leaks do that ,ever time..
and by any MEANS>
that means if the the ISC sticks open as is ALL SO COMMON
that is a vacuum leak. it sucks air the MAP sees that
an mixed fuel like magic, all on purpose and normal. for a
all map engines made (called speed density systems)
cracked vacuum hose (all of them or suspect)
all THINGS , on end of all those house must not leak air.
even the brake booster. must not leak,. see?
it can be simple as hose or , the end of hose device bad.
or ISC stuck.
ever lean the ISC?
idles speed controller ? gumming inside they all get.
from "EGR+PCV gas clouds of *****" i all them.
those two nasty forces make gunk and cause things to stick
its SMOG fumes there.

why do you need a stealership, ever heard of and ASE shop
google ASD shops by ZIP..
tell him you have a vacuum leak, he will find it
good shops have smoke machine to find them, takes skills to use.

one trick (have 10) is to pinch vacuum hoses or block them
RACE NOW? no , bingo.
finding some leaks are long hard hard work.
nature hates a vacuum so,, guess what in the end it finds a leak
and exploits it. (on earth not on the moon, max vacuum there)
