Went to start up my JLR today, Key-Fob in pocket, foot on the break pedal, hit the button nothing. Dash has usual message, foot on break push start. The thing was the break pedal would not move, hard as I pushed, nothing. Got out hit the Remote Start, started right up, turned it off got back in stared up as usual, everything back to normal.
WTF......
Hello there my friend, and welcome to Chrysler, I mean Fiat, or Fiat Chrysler whatever. Yes, gremlins do exist, and they love jeeps. They really used to love Fiats back in the 70's and 80's before Fiat shut down. Now the gremlims get both.

This happens to me sometimes, you just need to put more ass behind pushing the brake pedal down. You were probably real close to pushing it hard enough.
Sounds like what I tell my wife when I have to open a jar for her. "Here ya go hun. You almost had it."

Happens from time to time in my Ram as well as the Jeep. Every time it has happened, all I have done is re-positioned the keyfob (take it out and back in pocket) and it has started next try.

i've always just figured the soviets spys in the neighborhood were pumping me with too much radiation on those days

Doors on or off? When you take your doors off, and lock it, there are no doors to unlock so it thinks it is still in 'lock' mode - as in no one unlocked the door and got in. You have to 'unlock' the door to get it started. Remote start requires locked doors - so suspect you had no doors on.

I guarantee that there are Magneti Marelli parts on every FCA vehicle.

I use Magneti Marelli wiper blades on my JL. I would say I get a 5-10 hp bump.

I reported this years ago. Just have to push the brake pedal harder.

Definitely threw me off when it happened when the Jeep was new!

I have found if my fob is in my pocket with my cell phone I get the same thing.

this is all because of the break peddle pressure was to high to hit the switch that reads the sensor
