Did you chose the correct spark plugs ??? Did you gap the spark plug according the specs ??? . . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Weca9FVqS2s . . .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwdBEENa7Is . .

they were pre gapped and we purchased Bosch platinum Ir Fusion; the ones shown in the book that would be for my jeep.

ok found out that the security system reset and would not allow the key to work. had to disconnect the battery again and let is reset yet again to reactivate the key. better than having to have a new key reprogrammed. thank you for your help
