I had a dead battery on my 2015 Renegade and called AAA to start it. The man told me the battery was 5 yrs old and should be replaced soon. The next week my trunk was not closed all the way and the battery was dead again. A few minutes later it started without a jump. We let it run 1/2 hour before turning it off. When we tried it early before work, it started right up. 1 hr later when I had to leave for work it was dead. Called AAA and asked for a jump and a replacement battery. The tech told me about 20 mins but he took an hour and apologized. The car was running when he packed up and left. I waved goodbye and he drove away. That is when I realized that the car was stuck in park. I turned it off and restarted it. It scrolled through all the warning light and settled with the check engine and service transmission. The odometer was flashing. I quick called AAA back. I was told 1 hr and they were going to have to tow it. I told them how it was fine at 10 pm and 7 am with no lights etc. Their was no signs of transmission problems. Even when I waited for a jump, almost everything worked and their were no transmission lights. This began after they checked alternator and replaced the battery. The tow arrived 1 hr later and he had no idea how to get it on the truck since he could not get it out of park. He said he had never seen this happen before. Finally he managed to get it on the truck and it had been 4 hrs since my first call. I had it towed to the local Jeep dealer who could not look at it for 2 days. Today they called and said there was a short in the solenoid for the transmission. I explained how there had not been an issue prior to this and asked if the electrical needed to be reset. He said, no, I needed a $1235 solenoid repair due to a short. This is outrageous considering it was fine before the battery. The 2 are absolutely connected. I have no idea what else to say to them. I know I need my car and can't really afford over a $1000 repair.
