Hey guys im new here, I got a 2016 Commander with 400 miles. Machine has been all good until now. I parked it 2 months ago with an battery tender hooked up. I went to start it and noticed the display is a lit up but cant really read what it say when something scrolls across. The sport mode light on the display is ever so lightly lit and will brighten when the switch is in sport mode. it will not even attempt to start.. Headlights come and all switches will light up. I dont hear the fuel pump either . I double checked the new battery confirming 12.34 volts, swapped keys, checked kew switch and took it apart and was clean, cleaned both keys, checked that power was going to push button. power coming out of push button when pressed, checked all fuses and relays and swapped relays, checked all grounds and even added an extra ground to make sure, inspected wire harness,i disconnected ecu and battery to try to reset, i took apart ecu to see if moisture was in their or any evidence of a burnt board. I got power to solenoid and crossed it with a screw driver and it would turn over but not start. I could barley see 1 time it saying perfomance key but most of the time its blank with 1 key and itll show backwards RRRRRRRRR's with the other.. I called 4 diff dealers with no help. They all said theyve never heard such a thing. It would be greatly appreciated if people could help me. Im 4 hrs away from dealer to try a new key and or a new programmed ecu. Thanks everyone.
