I'm posting this with hopes that this wont be an issue for anyone else, but it is just a one time thing that happened to me.

2016 WK2 Diesel
6352 miles

I had just returned from getting parts for my 97 XJ and I pulled up to my house, put the vehicle in park, depressed the parking brake and pushed the stop button.

The engine kept running. The radio and dash turned off but the engine did not stop. I pushed the button again, and moved the shift lever back to drive then to park again and pushed the button again. The engine still would not turn off. I tried this sequence a few times and the engine would not turn off.
Luckily it was early on Saturday and the dealership was not far from my house. I took it in. I pulled into the service bay, put the vehicle in park, put the parking brake on, pushed the button and got out to talk to the service rep. I explained what happened and that I had pushed the button before getting out to talk with them. That is when the engine finally stopped running.

After looking at it a while they determined to replace the button, which of course is on back order. So I am having to wait a week or so to get my car back.

I will update with more info as it comes in, but I thought I would start this thread in case anyone else has the same issue.

Can the DEF exhaust regen system prevent the engine from shutting off?
The dealership says it's the Stop/Start button that is malfunctioning. Hopefully its a fluke thing. I have not found any other recent push start/stop button issues on the internet.
They also have told me that the part is on a a nationwide backorder. It will likely be a few weeks until they can get the new part.
Meanwhile the vehicle cant be driven since it is not safe. Chrysler is covering the rental for the duration. I am re-thinking my choice to not get the extended warranty.
Unfortunately the lifetime warranty option is not available for the eco-diesel models, so I will probably pass.

Wow! Finally got my Jeep back. On Nov 10th. over a month at the dealership. The part was on a National back order, so it took a while.
The part they replaced was the Stop/Start Button module and another module that was throwing error code after the button module was replaced. Also needed the key fob re-programmed for the new modules.
I had around 6300 miles on the vehicle hopefully this is a one time thing.
