My wife’s 2015 renegade sport 2.4 got hot climbing a modest grade in the wonderful 110 degree Arizona heat today. She pulled over immediately and shut it off. I picked her up took her home and came back to figure out what was going on with it. It was extremely low on coolant and the cap was kind of loose. I assume this is because I didn’t get it screwed on all the way last time I talk to Ray. Left it sitting with the hazard lights on and it ran the battery low. And it has a coolant sensor code and some fuel code and even with the battery good and charged it won’t start. Now that the battery‘s low I attempted to get it in neutral so that I could pull it under the trailer with a winch. But when you put it in neutral the electronic parking brake comes on. I did a little trick where your hole down the parking brake button hit the bridge and then turn the key off and it tries to start. No matter what I do I cannot get it to release the parking brake I even tried pulling a fuse. I don’t know what they were thinking way to design this but I’m at my wits end I can’t very well put on the trailer while it’s in park four-wheel-drive and it’s locked up at all four corners. Pull the fuse still stuck on. Anybody got any suggestions?

Thanks. I was able to charge the battery overnight and get it installed this morning. With a good battery in it, it worked out exactly as it should. Bowen park turn it he break off and then bypass initial safety switch to get it to neutral and I was able to get it I’m trailer. Now I just gotta figure out how dare P1212 code and the P0117 code tie it all together and what’s keeping it from starting. The coolant temp code makes sense because it was low and got hot but you’d think after it’s cooked down and full of coolant, that would no longer be an issue. The other dct comes up as either “oil temp too high” or some issue with the fuel pressure sensor. Again, even if the overheating caused the oil to get Hot and throw a code you would think it would go away after cool down. It’s also my understanding that either problem should typically prevent the car from starting. I’ve searched to the end of Google and I come up with nothing useful in trying to get this car running again. I was initially concerned of the blue head gasket or worse as it cranks fast almost like it has no compression. But after I put the battery charger on it it seems like it’s cranking train and almost starts as if it’s not getting enough fuel. How could it called temperature problem cause fuel delivery problems? It just doesn’t make sense.
