Not sure what "rebooted" means. Sometimes a Proxy alignment is needed. Perhaps that is what the Jeep dealer means.
The odometer will be flashing if you need a Proxy alignment.
Standby, hopefully somebody who actually has an answer will reply.
Maybe something like this would work: CRC Electrical Silicone Lubricant 02094 – 10 Wt Oz., Premium Grade Silicone Aerosol for High Temperature Applications
But, NOT WD-40 it is corrosive.
If you think the push button is mechanically broken then a spray won't work.
My 2014 Cherokee Haynes Repair Manual seems to say about the same as the video.
It does say the pushbutton switch is a 'module', not a mechanical switch.
So probably if you replace the 'module' you need to do a Proxy alignment so new 'module' can be recognized.
Just I guess, I defer so somebody who actually knows what they are talking about.
