You need to unlock the driver door with the key. This will reset the system.

Am having grand cherokee limited edition 2003, 4.0 the problem is the batery keeps draining. I bought new batery but still drains.Always meet the batery dead.Please, help


If you have a loose fan/drive belt. That would cause the problem. Just tighten it up. Corroded conctions at the battery but you should have cleaned those when you bought the new battery. Have you had the Alternator checked? Perhaps loose or corroded connections at the alternator or a bad alternator. You can remove it and bring it in to a parts store. Many of them will run a check on your old one before selling you a new one. You could have left something on that drains the battery. A light somewhere or even a short causing a power drain.

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee manufactured in October 1993. The problem I'm having is that the jeep wont start. At first we had no gas, no spark. We checked crankshaft sensor...it's ok, but...


Try this. Lock and unlock the tail gate with the key and see if it will start. The battery must be hooked uo when this procedure is followed. Whenever the battery is disconnected, the security circuit shuts the ignition down.
When you hook up any battery, make certain that you connect the positive battery cable first and negatvie (ground) second.

Headlights drain batery when driving alternator good though


The alternator must be on it's last leg, pumping out only enough juice to keep the dash light from coming on and not enough to run the car and the lights at the same time. Make sure the belt is tight, If the battery stays charged enough to start every day, I would blame the alternator. Taking the part to the auto store to get it checked will tell you.

My jeep wont start. i turn the key no crank, full battery. any ideas. tried to jump it nothing.diconected and reconeccted the batery still nothing. car was starting perfect no problem. Checked the shifter...


Just, Because you removed the battery connections and reinstalled them
will not repair a bad battery conection. Sounds like you have a bad conection at the battery. You'll need to remove the battery ends and clean
them with, a wire brush or a battery cleaning tool. Always, remove the NEG
conection FIRST,then the POS. After cleaning install the POS FIRST,Then
the NEG. Also, I believe there is a small conector on one of the cables.
Be sure to clean that conection also.
You, did not say if the lights are working.

Charge light, abs light, and rear light. Mazda 626 1993 2.5L


It can be as simple as the funny belt tensioner on the alternator!

I hope you got a simple volt meter to check the voltage.


12.8-13.6V is a health battery.

Get someone to help you to put tension on alt. belt.

If it does not look good then change it.

Double check all belts.

The should not give over 1/2" I like to keep them 1/3" of less.

Tighten all connections.

Pull spark plug cap one at at time to check for corrosion.

The coil can cause a lot of problem.

Spend time to grounding and secure all coil boot.


Good luck

Car turns slowly but just wont start


Starter turning slowly sounds like:

- bad starter, or
- bad connection to starter, or
- bad connection(s) on starter relay, or
- low charge on battery, and
- and maybe some others... but these are most likely

Secruity light stays on the truck won't start


Did the batery die??? Did you have to boost??? could be one of two things the pcm or your key needs to be reprogrammed, for the key connect the batery to a batery charger with it still connected to the truck, leave the ignition on for about 10-15 minutes or until the security light goes out, when it does go out turn off the ignition and turn it back on for another 10-15 minutes repeat this another time and it should be ok, if not take it to GM to have them check the pcm or replace...

goodluck...
