Howdy All,

I have a 2019 JLU Sport S...less than 3,000 miles. This morning the brake pedal was hard - almost no give - and the Jeep wouldn't start. The dash lights up and all the electronics work fine. Seems to be getting plenty of power...just won't start. I found a thread with a similar issue and tried a few suggestions....pushing brake pedal REALLY hard, FOB near start button....nothing working. Any other suggestions? Otherwise, I'll have it towed to the dealership in the a.m. Thanks.

Aux battery may be dead. It apparently must have juice in order for the Jeep to give the "start" signal.

Try jumpering N1 and N2. Lots of great info - search for threads by @Jebiruph

This is merely one suggestion - I'm definitely keyboard quarterbacking your problem here, but it's quick and free (both my suggestion and my advice!)
