i have the same problem and every time i take it to the dealership they can't find a code to fix and it starts just fine for them. whats strange is i am a rural mail carrier me and 2 other rural carrier bought 2008 jeep wranglers and all 3 do this one was fix by replacing the EGR valve but they had to do it 3 times to finally fix it and the other just had her tranmission replace to fix it. i think they need another recall

Maybe a visit to a more competent dealership would pay dividends.

We have an 08 Wrangler that has been intermittently not starting since September. It stayed at the dealership for over a month and they were never able to duplicate/pull a code. Interestingly once we drive the vehicle for a few days it does it again. Sometimes it leaves us stranded other times it just wont start in our front yard. Jeep is aware of the issue but stated they cannot do anything without a code. Disgusted!

With the Jeep or the dealer?
The reality is that if a problem can't be replicated and it's not triggering a code which can be used as a starting point, then it's virtually impossible to fix.
There many things it could be, from a bad ignition switch to a virtually blocked fuel filter (and 101 things in between), but unless you want to throw parts randomly at it there's little that can be done until it either presents the problem to the dealer or it fails to start permanently, in which case it will be easy to identify the problem.

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Sahara. The past few weeks my horn will randomly honk as well as headlights flashing, dashboard lights blinking, seat belt dinging...and most recently it has been difficult to start and has had to be jumped a few times.
I have had the battery and alternator tested and both appear to be 'good'.

Without circuit testing it's hard to tell, but while there can be many causes a 'ghost in the machine' is often the result of a bad or intermittant ground.
If the battery is good but jumping gets it started I'd take a look at the battery connections.

2005 jeep wrangler turns over great but wont fire or even attempt to fire. gastank has gas. It was running fine...turned it off then tried to restart 2 hours later but failed to fire. no history of starting issues.
