2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee won’t start

Asked by Vpetroglia Jun 02, 2019 at 06:40 PM about the 2016 Jeep Cherokee

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee has electrical
issues from day #1....the radio would
periodically just turn off and sometimes
wouldn’t turn back on for the duration of the
trip. Recently the radio stopped working all
together and I couldn’t connect my
Bluetooth. The screen itself was on and the
stations would change but no sound wound
come out.....I tried to soft and hard reset it
which didn’t work. Today the car just doesn’t
start. Nothing lights up and the doors have to
be manually opened with the key. I’d say it’s
pretty clearly an electrical problem.
Wondering if anyone had this issue. I will now
have to get it towed to the dealership
tomorrow. I will never be purchasing another
Jeep again as it’s oretty clear there are major
electrical problems with these trucks. Glad
it’s a lease and I’ll be giving it back in
