Car will not turn on like battery is dead but battery has full charge

type and year of is helpful so we`ll go generic----start by checking the connections at battery for corrosion or damage if good than check power to starter if none check wiring and connections also check power from ignition switch as well as fuses.also try turning key to accessory step on brake and move shifter to neutral than try starting if starts shifter may be out of adjustment or damaged this would be your basic troubleshooting for dead type battery when battery is fully charged but always recheck your battery that it is fully charged

wont start when key in ing. and turning on than cutting off if battery dead

factory alarm, when manually unlocking the door the lights flash & horn usually go off & the car will start & shut off within a second or 2. Have 2 96 jeeps that do it the panic button on the keyless entry is the only way to shut it off. If the battery has died & a new one is installed it trips the panic mode as well. If the battery is dead but vehicle starts with a jump but shuts off soon after jumper cables are removed, the alternator is bad & cant keep the computer powered up & will shut down the vehicle. A little more specific with symptoms will make diagnosing much easier.

i just bought a 92 jeep cherokee ran beautiful . now it just sits there cant get it to start . battery was dead replaced still wont start . cant tell if its the ignition or the starter.

I'm assuming the starter is not turning the engine...check the small wire on the starter for 12v with key turned to start. If no voltage there, check ignition switch and neutral start switch. (voltage in, voltage out)
