Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Won't start sometimes

I have an 01 Grand Cherokee Limited. Sometimes when you turn the key there is nothing. Gauges work, everything else works.Sometimes if you keep trying, all of a sudden it will start. It may start good for a month then it does it again. Sometimes I just hold the key in the start position for a minute or so and it will start. Had the battery load checked and it was fine. Battery connections were cleaned an tightened...??????

Hmm, sounds like starter. Next time it will not start, don't hold the key for almost a minute. Try turning the key several times if no luck, grabb a hammer and LIGHTLY tap on starter. If it turns over normally then, starter is going out.

1996 jeep grand Cherokee starting problem. Turn ignition switch on - no fuel gauge, volt meter and no primary coil voltage. Move switch on and off multiple times then gauges work and it will start.


The most likely fault is a bad ignition switch. The electrical portion of your ignition switch has probably failed...well, only part time failure, jiggling the switch on and off will cause it to make contact again. Everything you say that doesn't work, should be working just by turning the key to on.
Are you looking beyond the switch for something not triggering? Don't make it too complicated: switch on, and the pcm should be powered up (along with dash gauges being on and the check engine light is on.) That means you should now see that voltage at the ASD relay, as it is now "on" and power is going to the coil and to the injection system. Your switch is the only thing tying everything together. If it doesn't work, nothing else works. This sure sounds like the electrical portion of the switch, not the lock cylinder portion, but examine carefully. Some ignitions have a metal rod from the lock cylinder to the electrical portion where the rod moves a sliding bar across different electrical contacts. Sometimes this mechanical linkage can foul up and cause switch problems.

Sometimes the jeep grand cherokee 2005 limited does not start immediately - turn over the key and nothing - had the jeep in and they ran a diagnostic and could find no problems with the battery, alternator...


This is a normal condition I will explain why. Your vehicle has an ETC(Electronic throttle conrtol) which mean the is not a throttle cable. It is control by onboard computers in the vehicle. There is a delay sometimes because the ETC performs whats called a sweep test. turn the key to the on position for 2 seconds for it will then fire right up. I hope this info was helpfull please rate it.

Key wont turn - to turn the car on...


The key needs to be replaced. Sometimes, not all, for some reason the key is not detected and your vehicle will not start. If you have a spare try it, if not you will need to go to dealership.

My '01 Santa Fe awd v-6 has a new transmission, now sometimes won


Bases on the limited info provided, most likely the ignition switch. If you list the symptoms you experience when it doesn't start it would be easier to diagnose your problem for example: does it crank? does the key turn and do nothing? etc. Hope this answers your question.
