My 2014 Jeep Compass Latitude doesn't start or crank when keyed in.
This happens mainly in the morning or the car is not used for long time or overnight.
When it happend for the first time it took it to a dealr and they said there is nor problem with Engine or the vechile and they updated the software. I didn't had the problem for about 6months, but after 6months it started again i took it to the other delar and they also said the same time and told me to use the spare key and see whether it repeats again and if it happens again they said Key has to be replaced. It worked for 2days and again it started giving the problem.

Please any body could advice me what would be the problem.
And i was going through the internet and found that replacing the key will not help, it might be a problem with Wire Less Control Module. I am not sure it is because of this or not. Any help would be appricated.

Hi Sourabh,

Did you let your dealership know that this happened again? I know you said you were told a new key fob might be the answer, but the dealership may be able to do some additional diagnostics for you since this did occur again.

Yes i have informed them that after using the spare key it's happening again.
Please let me know if you'll be returning to have them diagnose further. We can have a case opened for you and have a specialist work with you while the vehicle is at the dealership.

This is sometimes a fault in the starter motor, the brushes stick, remove starter motor clean brushes and armature and all should be well again. If you are stuck on the roadside or somewhere, give the starter motor a sharp knock a couple of times, that will free the brushes , it will at least get you away. Hope this helps.
