  1. Engine and Drivetrain
    Hey guys, first post and looking for some help. My fiancé has a 2012 Jeep Patriot 2.4L automatic transmission, with manual windows/lock, etc. The issue is that ONLY in the morning, the Jeep will crank, but not start. It will only start after 4-5 times of turning the key, or after a jump start...
  2. Engine and Drivetrain
    When it rains I get this code and usually the ETC light flashes and it goes into a hairy non-limp-home mode but slow response from the pedal and idle at 2k, with lurching "in and out of gear" effect (thought it is cvt, LU solenoid in and out?). I found that I can key off and key on and it drive...
  3. Engine and Drivetrain
    First post - hope it reads OK .. My 2008 2.4 CVT Patriot (96k) has intermittent non-start issues. She'll crank, but not fire - mostly when the engine is cold and it also appears to happen more often when the air temp is cooler (lower than about 6C / 42F is the trigger point for not starting) ~...

One morning, after driving a few miles to my office, the ETC light blinked for less than a second. During that short time, the throttle didn't respond. I...

My jeep is not going anywhere currently and wont go over about 5mph with a load of lights on...
  6. Engine and Drivetrain
    Today after putting a full tank of gas in and washing my Jeep, which always used to be the kiss of death on my Saab, I got onto the highway and felt my Jeep lurch a little bit when accelerating. I didn't expect anything major because it was cold so I figured it was the CVT warming up. Then I...
  7. Engine and Drivetrain
    I have a problem with my jeep patriot 2008, 3 weeks ago the ETC (electronic throttle control) and Traction Control light turn on and I lost engine power, It just ran idle. It can not go more than 2000 RPM. I turn it off and on and it was everything ok. Now it started again with the problem...
  8. Newbie Check-In
    Hey everyone, I thought some of you might find some interest with this problem, and might even might know what it actually is (God forbid you have had the same thing)... I bought a new 2010 patriot, limited, deep water blue at the end of May up in Colorado. I drove up to the mtns and hung...
