Recently we have been having random starting issues. We get in depress brake pedal and press the start button. Dash lights up but the engine does start. Sometimes the start is delayed several seconds. Other times is takes several attempts to get it fired up.

Once started it runs fine, no warning lights on dash. It usually only happens once a day, most often in the morning or sometimes if it has been parked several hours.

Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

17 Sport with 6,000 miles.
My 2017 Renegade just started to do the exact same thing, dealer is a week out on appointments, did your dealer ever find a resolution?

HELP! My 2015 jeep renegade limited won't start. All the electronics work, its not showing any fault or warning lights.
Sometimes it will just click, other times it sputters & doesn't catch. What can I do??

Looks like it's time to call the towtruck.

Alternatively try a different battery after disconnecting your original battery and reconnecting one you know has a full charge.

Be careful if you decide to Jumpstart your Jeep as it's been known to cause further electrical issues if not done properly as per your manual.

A couple of posts previous and the guys says it was his injectors. Your Jeep may be different but at least you are getting a few replies to keep you pondering :D

Thank you!
This time it was the battery, although I'm still noticing it takes a little longer to "catch" when I press the start button.

It may be of note, my jeep is booked in April 6 (reliant of course on Covid-19 lockdown rules), to have the turbo replaced. Apparently a known issue, and one which I would like to have been advised of.

The "symptoms" I noticed were, sometimes you'd put your foot down to accelerate and there was a significant lack of power (acceleration). Secondly, intermittently the cruise control would disengage and become unavailable for the remainder of the trip. Sometimes it would resolve after the car had been switched off for awhile. Other times it would do it again.
Not ideal on a highway!

Nevermind, I'll see if it works!
Thanks again
