Problem starting

My Gf has a jeep compass that she is leasing. I from vegas but i was living in texas for he last 2 years. when i moved back her jeep has been sitting for i dont know how long. she didnt drive it cause he step dad has an extra car and she was gonna go over her miles on her lease. but enough of that the battery was dead and like two of the tire are really low. so today i tried to jump start it and it wouldn't turn on all the electronics turned on but it wouldnt start. Also this code on the odemeter kept saying 9ate or gate. i also check the back cargo door and it was close. does anyone know anything bout this or coud help me out please.

It's possible the battery is shot. That's the only thing I can think of off the top of my head. I had my battery go dead, (electronics would come on but the vehicle wouldn't start). After a quick battery change it started and runs great. If you have another battery around you can try in it's place that would tell you if it's a battery or an electronics problem.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

If you have a charger you could put it on for an afternoon and see if it will hold a charge and boost it afterwards. That gate indicator is the rear door. the latch sensor must not be tripped for it to go off. Open it and give it a good hard closes.

If the gate light becomes a problem the latch in the gate will need adjustment so that the switch within it is activated. But the dealer will have to fix it once the vehicle is returned from the lease anyway.

I don't know, my Blackbery smartphone is pretty smart....it even thinks it knows what I am thinking or going to say next! The spelling, however, that's all me.

Generally they don't care as long as it works. I've never heard of them giving anyone trouble for changing the battery before.

Although I've never leased a vehicle, I don't see where they would give you any problem over that.

My girlfriend leases all her vehicles. They only seem to care about scratches, windows and the interior.
