Engine will not start at times and will cut off while driving. Turn signals will not work and radio will cut off without warning. Can giggle the key and sometimes get the electrical back on but not always.
Getting very expensive to deal with it. Keep having the same problem over and over.
Engine cranks over but does not fire

2007 Wrangler Unlimited 4-door. Intermittent starting problem: Turn the key and hear a click, sometimes may actually turn the crank a 1/4 turn, but then nothing happens. Try it several times (4-6) and it will eventually start (so far). First had it checked at PEP Boys and they replaced the battery $145. Problem not resolved. Took the Jeep to the dealer, they replaced a little black box and charged us $225. Problem actually occurred more often, took it back to the dealer. They reprogrammed a module and charged another $75 (claimed they spent 2hrs doing diagnostics). Problem not resolved. Taking it back to dealer under their 90 day parts and labor Warranty on repairs.

Sometimes it won't crank when turn the switch. Sometimes it clicks when you turn the switch. Sometimes you have to wiggle key in ignition to get it to crank.
