Engine Will not Start Due to Wireless Control Module Fault on Jeep Compass

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.

all dash lights come on, radio works, headlights on, but motor will not crank, tried removing IOD fuse to reset WCM (this worked once before) not this time. Tried to disconnect battery to reset and that did not work
Went to work and it was fine. Left work and would not do anything

all dash lights, radio, headlights everything works except vehicle won't start. It is random. Will start sometimes and not other times. Currently working to get it resolved... but TANNER MOTORS in Brainerd is a JOKE and can't seem to figure it out. My vehicle is headed to Brandl Motors, of Little Falls.

Dash lights lite up, little acceleration in the gas. I could stil drive it at idle speed. towed it to the jeep dealership they said it was the control module. It did reset itself after they looked at it, luckly cause I didn't have the 1400.00 they wanted to replace it... Pretty sure this should be a recall, but jeep is dragging there feet because the same thing is happening the Laredo series and that has a recall...

Car would not turn over, all dash lights on. Replaced starter & battery. Not the problem. Took back to dealership and we were notified it was the WCM.
