    Is it a factory security light or is it a aftermarket security system with a red led in the dash to the right of the steering wheel just above the cig lighter socket?

SOURCE: have a 2008 jeep grand cherokee laredo put key in

This sounds like a bad chip in the key, try a spare key, if it starts with spare key then key is bad, if it doesnt start then you will need reprograming

SOURCE: I cleaned the battery terminals as I appeared to

I'd try bringing it to any of the larger parts stores and ask if they can scan the codes (they usually do that free) After they have finished, ask if they can clear the existing codes. That should turn the warning lights off. The system itself goes through self diagnostics about every fifty miles or so. Likely if you do nothing except for driving it, once the on board diagnostics have self checked, it's likely the lights will go out by themselves.

The security light is the factory alarm. Does this come on while driving?

If your battery has not been drained, try unlocking the lift gate or the passenger side door. That should disarm the alarm. You may need to get a jump if you're getting the flashing lights.

Another thing it does is to shut off your fuel pump. If you get it started after trying the above procedure, the issue is definitely your alarm system.

It is armed whenever you normally leave your car (using power locks seems to arm it on my 94 GCL.

There is a permanant disarming procedure on FixYA but it is pretty radical -- you have to find one of the wires that sends the signal to the alarm system from one of your door locks and ground it.

Is the security light on in the instrument cluster? This is the most common problem with a no start condition and everything else is powered. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for about 30 minutes to reset the system and retry starting. Good luck.

I have a 1990 sx corolla the car won't start the reds on the dash don't even appear but my headlights work and the blinkers the battery is fine and i just changed the altinator what else could


If the warning lights do not come on and the car will not start, I would guess the key switch has failed or a major fuse is blown.
I would check the fuses first, then for power at the key switch.

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.


The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

Do you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or ANTITHEFT? Disconnecting your battery can trigger your antitheft system.

Here is a link about the security.

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.

Security lights flashing after battery cable removal-no start


Anytime you disconnect and reconnect your battery, the factory alarm will arm upon reconnection and the truck will not start. You have to close your doors, then manually lock and unlock the door with your key. This should turn off the security system and you should be able to start the truck.
