Hi Welcome to Just Answer!

That light coming on and the jeep shutting off means there is an issue with the antitheft system on the jeep. It could be either the key or the module. If you have another key try that and see if it works with that.

Sorry the problem continues

ok the issue is with the sentry key module then which is part of the alarm system bad news though you will need to have it towed to a jeep dealer to have it replaced because the module will need to be programmed to the jeep and to your keys

is there a way to bypass the mod
Expert:  b5demon replied 1 year ago.

unfortunately there is no way to by pass the module.
