    It's like a chime when the engine starts. Some times it happens just when you are driving along. I've read that BMWs have an ice warning noise, is this what it is?

    Also sometimes the temperature display on the rev counter flashes at startup.
    Any ideas?

    Do you mean "acoustic". If the sound is a "hum", you are likely hearing the electric fuel pump. If you leave the key on "Position 2" before starting the engine, the sound should stop after a few seconds - once the fuel system is up to pressure.

Some times there is chime to indicate cold temperature and the temp will flash on the tach. When you start up there is a chime when you are due for service. check the speedometer at the milage reading when you start your car. it will say under it oil service or inspection that is the mileage left till the service should be performed. Let me know if this helps.

What would cause dash lights and gauges to not come on occasionally when key is turned to the position just before starting the car?


I would initially suspect a bad ignition switch (not the lock....the actual switch). It could also be a short poor ground, failing component on the instrument cluster board etc. Try go ogling your problem with your specific year make and model to see if this may be a common issue.

2003 Jeep Wrangler alarm sounds in cab but no indicator lights flash


The beeping alarm would be for leaving the key in the ignition or the lights on. Maybe a gauge that had dropped to zero.
Let us know if it happens again and what the conditions are.

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the ignition switch seems to be getting bad. I can usually get it to start by jiggling the key around and sliding it in and out while turning it. It will start...


it sounds like the ignition cylinder itself is worn and needs replacement. the fact that you cant turn the key. thing that can cause this is if you have to many keys on your key chain .

2003 Sonoma does not turn-over


U have lost the battery, check the cables, if they are clean (no corrsion) replace the battery, modern sealed batteries fail like this, crank fine and then puff nothing, happened to at least 5 times over the years and saw it all the time at work.
