So, I took delivery of a 2016 Rebel 4x4 w/ the Hemi yesterday. For the 15 miles I had her, she was awesome! Well, I went to go pick up my wife at work and got there a little early. I backed the truck in to a parking space in a lot across the street and I received two error messages in the Driver Info Center on the dash, "Service 4WD System" and "Service Four Wheel Drive System". Thinking it may be one of the fuses, I shut the truck off, popped the hood, and made sure all the fuses were seated (they all had to be pushed down/"clicked" in. Well, I go to start the truck and the brake pedal was very firm, so I press it like I normally would and press the start button, an NOTHING. Well, let me digress, all the electronics worked fine, the stereo, the dash, everything, but the truck wouldn't crank to start at all. Not even a clicking sound like a low battery. I call the dealership and they sent out a tow truck. Had to pull the "emergency neutral" lever (on the left hand side of the dash above the e-brake there's a little panel that you pop off, and an orange "rip cord" under the panel that will shift the truck to neutral if stuck in park). But I'm just dumbfounded, It wouldn't shift out of park or start. Yet, EVERYTHING else worked flawlessly. Not what I expected from a $56,000 truck that had a whopping 63 miles on it when I picked it up (due to my dealership having to do a trade to get it there) and after putting just 15 miles on it. Anyone have any insight on this? The service dept. is supposed to be looking at it first thing this morning.
