it appears to me, an expert on jeep automobiles situated right here in west Philadelphia, that your malfunctioning automobile is not running well as it could be, there are literally 1000's of reasons why your automobile let me list a couple right now as there are 1000's of parts that make up the modern automobile which is designed to get you to where you want to go without issues, problems that could cause this maybe tyre pressures incorrect, gas level low, incorrect seat adjustment, transmission sticking, flat battery, or maybe a malfunctioning MCU, motor control unit this controls the motor and could be the reason why your motor has malfunctioned. have you tried to start the automobile since this all happened? fill up with gas (if low) foot to the floor, transmission in park and keep cranking for 10 seconds


Most common is the crank sensor, my jeep did the same thing, replaced the sensor and it's off and running, mine did not set a code but some do. There use to be a vid on you tube about this problem, don't know if it is still up.
