Won't start/ETC light
Just as title says - Patriot won't start. ETC & MIL - electronic throttle control & malfunction indicator light - lights are on. Sounds like everything is getting power, makes all clicks, etc. Just won't start. Won't shift from neutral either?
I called Jeep Roadside Service (vehicle under bumper-to-bumper & powertrain warranties) and tell them I need to be towed. They say they'll send someone to jump it (and tow if need be). Two people show up in a compact car to jump it which doesn't work so I just had to call again to get a tow. Unreal.
Found some info online about the drive-by-wire not keeping the throttle blade open but not very much else so I doubt it's a service bulletin (yet!)
Will keep you updated.
EDIT: The truck driver said it sounds like the starter. It only has 18,000 miles on it that sounds odd.
