    Hey everyone I just recently purchased a 19 Jeep Wrangler Sport S 2-door and today I experienced something very weird, when I got to my business this morning the low fuel light turned, and it read I have 20 miles left, so around noon today I headed out to buy my employees lunch and my Jeep would not start. It has like 400 miles on it, so being a car guy I hopped out and tried to start it with my key fob, it started rite up but then it shut down and said fuel too low to keep running, so I hopped back in it and it started rite up, does anybody know what's going on? Is the computer telling the vehicle it's out of gas?

    Welcome to the forum. I’d take it straight back to the dealer you bought it from. You shouldn’t have problems on a brand new vehicle like that.

    Welcome @Wraith 83 starting issues like yours are best inspected by the dealer. Stick with quality fuels and avoid running low on fuel.

    I agree with dust I would power slide into their parking lot and say fix this shit or have it towed whatever works.

    Am I missing something Einstein - fuel level around E, low fuel light on, 400 miles on odometer and no mention of refueling, the system scrolling low fuel - What could it be ?

    So I would guess you ran out of gas. Lets keep it a secret,
    1) You should NEVER see the low fuel light !!
    2) 1/4 tank is the time to refuel.
    3) gauges ie fuel level are NOT ACCURATE !!!

    TIP: refuel and reset trip meter, then watch both to confirm each other.
