Why is my Jeep not starting?
Please help! My Jeep won’t start! It wasn’t having any problems just a few hours ago when I last drove it. Now it’s completely unresponsive. Even the radio doesn’t work. Can someone tell me why my Jeep won’t start?

I’m so sorry to hear that your Jeep is not starting! The good news is that it should be fairly easy to resolve. There are a lot of things that could cause your Jeep not to start, but since the radio isn’t working either, it’s probably just a dead battery.
If the radio and lights were working, it might have been a more serious issue like a faulty alternator or starter. But since nothing is getting power, it’s almost certainly a dead battery.
If you know someone nearby with a working car and a set of jumper cables, you can have them give you a jump start or call roadside assistance. If that’s not an option, you can remove the battery and Uber to an auto parts store, where they can charge your battery.
Once you’ve got your battery charged up and your Jeep working again, you might want to consider reviewing car insurance to ensure you’re still paying the best rate with Jerry.

Why did my GEICO premium increase by 40%?
When I called GEICO about my renewal, they said they found a speeding ticket that was not accounted for before. The policy covers me, my wife, two children, and five vehicles, so one speeding ticket seems like a minor issue. Why would the increase be so significant?
