Moving on up .....
My brand new 2018 JLUS for no apparent reason lost all its electronic programming yesterday and was stranded in my parking lot at work and unable to start the vehicle. Called Jeep Roadside assistance and had it towed to dealer. Still at dealer but they are telling me it "lost its programming" and they reprogrammed the computer and now it starts, but they can't tell me why it happened and if it will happen again. Very upset and concerned, how do I know this isn't just going to happen again and be stranded somewhere.

There's no quarantee you'll have to have the faith or sell the jeep==

Life is very unpredictable and we just ASSUME it's OK-

That's why we have a WARRANTY ON NEW VEHICLES--and LEMON LAWS !

Good luck

I had seen a similar thing in a video reviewing the JL. Go to time 8:45
