My jeep wouldn't start the other night. The lights come on, radio works, and remoteless key works. When I try to start it the radio turns off but the lights stay on. I had the battery checked and it was bad. Replaced the battery and the same problem exists. Also the dashboard says my gate is ajar but it is closed not sure if it is related. I have tried leaving the battery off to reset it no luck. I have tried both sets of keys no luck. I have tried to start it in neutral and same thing happes no radio but still have power. Don't really hear any noise from the engine. Hear a faint wheening noise and then nothing.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check the battery cables to be sure that they are tight at the starter (solenoid) and where the ground wire connects to the engine (as well as both terminals at the battery).

Let me know how this turns out.
