Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My Jeep goes sometimes for 15 minutes sometimes it's 30 or so. Then it just
dies driving down the road. Sometimes it starts right back but others it takes
30 minutes or more. When it does this it always says there's no key. Help me
please what is this? I can't figure this out.

Maybe the ignition switch is bad.

Check the wires going to the transfer case if it's 4x4. 3 wires going to a sensor on the outside of the case. If those wires or connections get dirty, wet, or loose power in any way, the engine will die completely and suddenly with no hesitation and will only start back when the connection is reestablished (when the water or dirt drips off).

A good way to test these would be to wiggle them around while the engine is idling. If it does, you've found your problem.
