I have a 2008 Jeep Patriot that won't turn over. All lights, radio and air come on. But engine won't turn over and door locks won't respond to remote key. Literally started minutes before hand.


Asked by Nov 20, 2014 at 10:32 AM about the 2008 Jeep Patriot Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Anyone know what it this issue could
be? I'm thinking starter or relay. If it's
one of those then how much would it

6 Answers


Could be starter or relay,but this can all so be caused by your anti theft system,i only say this because your door lock,s quit responding,


If you have another key for it,try it.


Its probably going to be your battery, even though it just started. How long did it run when you started it just minutes before?

TA77,is right start with the battery,then go from there.


I think you guys may be right on the battery, I heard if even one cell goes out on it then it will not turn over. I hope it's the battery, would cost less in labor.


I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, LOL.
