I have a brand new (one week old) 2019 Compass Trailhawk. I’m having trouble with remote start and regular start/stop. First, I tried remote start using the uconnect app, and instead of starting the jeep, all the security alarms went off. Next, after trying it with the fob, the car warmed up but it wouldn’t let me start the engine until the 15 minute cycle was up. A couple days later, I tried remote start again, with the fob, and it warmed up, but after 15 minutes the alarms all went off. And then today — without touching the remote start — I went out to my car, pressed the engine start (on the dash), and the jeep wouldn’t start, but rather went into the “on” mode and warmed up for 15 minutes — it wouldn’t let me turn it off, or start the car, or shift gears, or anything. I tried locking, unlocking, getting out, using the fob, using the dash button, etc. After 15 minutes, I was able to start the engine.
I have an appt at the dealer tomorrow, but the mechanic on the phone with me today made it sound like I was crazy (and, that I didn’t know how to start a car). I don’t think this is me. Any ideas?
Oh, and the sunroof buttons aren’t always working either. Might that be related?
