Hi. I have a 2017 Patriot. This morning it wouldn’t start and I noticed that the tire pressure warning light was on along with a red dot light above my temperature gauge. I had to remove key and try to start it again. After a few attempts it finally started Jeep doesn’t run hot and other than that seems to run fine. Any ideas what the issue could be? Thank you for help

Welcome! You've been here for 9 months and this is your first post?!?! Congratulations! Glad to have you on the site.

I've not had your problem so I'm only guessing. I wonder if the red dot is actually the security system, i.e., it didn't recognize your key and so it wouldn't let you start. I had a Saturn that did that so often I learned to keep it locked even in my garage, but as long as I unlocked it immediately before starting it would always start.

I doubt the tire pressure had anything to do with it.

There are others on here who know more than I do. Maybe they'll offer some better advice.

Welcome!

As Ignatz mentioned, the red dot has to do with the anti-theft system.

It could be something simple like a key with a low battery, a key going bad, or a problem with the Wireless Control Module WCM which is also involved in the Tire Pressure Management System (TPMS). If you have trouble again, try using a different key, and if that doesn't work, try pulling the IOD WCM fuse (10-amp, fuse #17 ) for a few seconds to reset the WCM. If the problem keeps happening you may need to take it in
