hey how are you

We need to have it scanned with a Chrysler scanner or equivalent to retrieve faults codes

That is the best way to be accurate

1- is battery good has 12 volts

2- alternator charging at 14 volts

3- How many miles on it ?

4- Do you have a starter issue ,does the light inside dim down when u try to start it , You need to Check Starter relay if it is getting stuck at times .

5- ignition switch on these models can be an issue .

6- do you have one or 2 keys and does it do it with both .have you tried ?

But for now lets try a master reset on it , to see if it is a module issue needs resting since it the 2nd time only that does it since you mentioned that .

you will still have to scan to confirm even if it start it up after reset to see what is causing it

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Please let me know

Thank You
