Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Have two keys two vehicle. drove it to mechanics house for shocks. he called me back in two days and said jeep would not stay running. Went over and tried it myself. Turn key on, engine starts, runs for 2-3 seconds and shuts off. Guages on dash do not work and have a hey symbol with a line through it

HI,

Ok, in the engine compartment fuse box is the IOD fuse, it is fuse #15(50 amp). Remove it for at least 1 full minute. Then reinstall and crank engine. This resets the SKIM system. See attached for fuse location

Hello, I tried removing the F15 50 amp fuse for one minute and replacing it. I still have the same problem. This did not fix the problem
Jeep Mechanic: Eric, Automotive Repair Shop Manager replied 2 years ago

HI,

Ok, that is the only reset procedure. This means that there is a hard failure in the SKIM - control module, antenna ring or key- and will require diagnostics with a scan tool
