I would like to suggest a faulty headlamp/dimmer switch may be the cause of your problem. Over time the contacts within the switch can corrode or possibly over heat due to intermittent loose contact thereby causing a slight internal arc. In some circumstances this may result in the internal contacts essentially welding themselves together, or creating enough **** that allows for sufficient contact to be made to complete the circuit. You can remove the switch and check for burned or discolored areas on the body of the switch or where the contacts are made within the socket. If there is any of that indicated , or if the plug going into the switch show this, then the switch is probably the culprit. I hope this helps.

Hi,

Offhand, probably areas to check would be:

  • door switches especially driver side and the rear (tailgate). They may need to be checked for rusting, corrosion, misalignment, shorted or loose/open connectors/wirings; and/or
  • alarm system and/or the remote control/keyless entry system including its control module.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Is there a way I can disconnect my anti-theft device on my 2000 jeep grand cherokee laredo with a 4.0 engine


If you have a "Chipped" key there is a work around, a box with wire leads that when you put your key in it and wire it in tell will tell the computer to dissarm the theft system. Places that sell remote start devices sell them and can install them, they are also on the web. This does defeat the anti-theft which means any key will start the vehicle making it easier to steal your Jeep

2000 grand cherokee laredo- went to go to start it and it wouldn't turn over. tried a second time and it started but then the check engine light came on and hasn't gone away. drove fine to work.


You won't know much until you get the computer scanned for trouble codes. Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts.

Hi Rabih,

I hate to tell you this, but it is time to stick your hands DEEP into your pockets and get ready to spend the big bucks! Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) P0420 and P0430 are "catalyst efficiency below threshold" codes. The ONLY way to fix them is to replace your catalytic converters. If you also have any other codes, you must fix these FIRST, otherwise you will only destroy new converters as well.
