My manual leads me to believe that I should just push my Start button once and the vehicle will start. Mine does not do that. I have to hold it in, and release it or the starter will remain in action. I'm not complaining, as I've never had a push button start before, but wondering if anyone else is having this occur. Thanks.

Umm. Okay. I'll try that. I usually just put my foot on the clutch to start it since the P brake is always on. Thanks.

I tried the suggestions several ways today. With brake depressed, brake not depressed, from a Off position and the Run position (I don't have an accessory position...even though my girlfriend's brand new 2018 Cherokee Latitude with PBS does). The Jeep will not start unless I hold the button in. Then, I have to release it or the starter will remain engaged. Does anyone else have the 6spd and this same situation?

Hi Mudman1,

You should be able to start with a single push, not an extended hold. It might be beneficial to have your dealership take a look at the button. Please let me know if you need any help making an appointment.
