07 and 08 JK - Engine No Crank/No Start Condition - July 08

Hello all, just bought an 08 JK in June to replace a 03 TJ. Got her home, and the next day had intermittent no crank issue. Tapped the Auto Transmission gearshifter and she’d start. After the dealer denying it was related to the transmission, they one after the other ( with my pushing after each solution failed) replaced the battery, starter, ignition switch before finally looking at the transmission. I had to beg them to put in a TRS inside the transmission. While finishing up the TRS install, the tech noticed the shift cable wasn’t seated properly. So I’m told.
Bottom line.....once the TRS and that cable were replaced, my JK starts every time on the first crank.

Hope anyone with this issue gets as lucky as I did. Only took four trips to the shop over 7 weeks.
