My 2017 Jeep Renegade Latitude will not start. Sometimes, it works, and most times, it doesn't. I have tried literally everything. It has been in the shop constantly, but they can't find a cause for the problem after independently testing every component. I have tried pushing the start button with the rf side of the key fob, and that doesn't work. I have replaced the car battery, still not working. The dealership will not replace the starter or the components because there are no error codes. I have always wanted to own a jeep, but this guy is just going to end up in a junkyard where it belongs. Anybody have a cheap Toyota I can buy?

There is copper compound to reduce oxidation and improve conductivity. I like to use it on grounded ends. Bed ground is not defected as direct failure. I would look for rusty electrical connections.
