A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.

    I could not start my car and through it was a bad battery, I replaced the battery and could still not start my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I then had the Jeep towed to the Dealership thinking the Key Fob needed to be reset. Nope.....it was the WIN module that needs to be replaced. This is not the first time hearing this could be a problem. I am very angry that I am now paying 800.00 to have the part replace.

    It takes multiple times to start. I took it to a repair shop and the part is backordered for a few weeks.
