I just thought of something else. The second time it happened, and I had it towed in, as soon as they got the Jeep off of the flat bed, the Service Manager took my key, and walked around the Jeep 3x's locking and unlocking the doors. Then he got in it and it started! He said he did this for the "transmitter to relearn the key". Of course, the trip to the shop took longer than a 1/2 hour (remember, the first time this happened he told me to wait 1/2 hour, and it started!). Dealer ordered a new transmitter anyway, since this was the second time and it was still under warranty. It took a week or so to get the part in and installed, but never once in that waiting period did it fail! Good luck.
