94 Jeep won't start Security system draining battery

My 94 jeep won't start and when I turn the key it makes a tinking sound. I would like some advice how I would go about disconnecting the system and still allow the truck to work. It's draining my battery, when I get it jumped it starts but it does it again. I have been told to deactivated it and activate it via my key through the drivers side door but even after that gets down it still reverts back to the orginal problem. Please someone HELP ME!!! Thank you.

Find and pull the fuse. Even aftermarket units have a fuse somewhere.You will need a new battery after you find the problem as starting batteries do not tolerate going flat too many times. They are not designed for it.

2009 jeep commandeer wont start, when I turn the key there is no sound, lights wont turn on and is that wasn't enough the key gets stuck in the ignition. any ideas?


it wont crank, no A/t car starts unless cranked first. (a key point)

fix head lights first. this is a feature in all cars.

that is SIMPLE and HOT all the time

they must work at all times and is the top way to diagnose

electric problems



you have a dead battery,.

only why remains.

i bet it cranks jumper cable started, call AAA or buy some cables.

or swap in a charged battery , or heck charge yours, buy a charger.

check fuses.

check battery lugs for green death?

check battery voltage. at 12.6vdc, if not charge the battery

if the battery continues to disgharge.

that is called phantom drains, or bad battery .

or the alternators is bad.(system)

once started the battery volts must be 13.3.to 15v, if not the charge system is bad ,(fuses, belts slipping and lots more possibles)

I have a 94 jeep that wont start with the key could you help me .


Try putting your key in the driver's side door, turn key to the left, then to the right and back to the left again. This should leave the door in the unlocked position. Now insert key in ignition and see if it starts. This worked for us, jeep apparently had a security system on it and we had no keyless remote that came with when we bought it.

The light work on the jeep the horn works, I put the vechicle in park turn the key and it wont start, The the key is turn it make a clicking sound


this sounds like a low battery problem ... the horn and lights do not take much energy to turn on, but starting the engine takes a lot of power. Try jumping the Jeep with another car, or a battery jump pack (available at any auto-parts store). If the engine kicks over and starts, then leave your Jeep running in park for about 15 minutes. After 15 minutes of running, turn the Jeep off and then try to start it again with no jump -- if it starts, you had a low battery, but the issue is probably solved (running the engine recharges the battery). If, after you have had the car running for 15 minutes and turn it off, it does not start on its own, you probably need a new battery (and you should have your electrical system checked as you might have a bad alternator that is not charging your battery). Sears Auto Canter has a great piece of equipment that can test your battery, and your entire electrical system (including the alternator) in just a few minutes. I recommend that you take your Jeep to a Sears Auto Center and have it checked, whether or not the jump worked because their system can make sure that there is not a slow drain on the battery (due to a loose connection or something like that) which would cause you to have the same problem again.

Jeep will start & but shuts off in a few seconds i think it may be the security system. How do I shut the system off?


I can tell you how to disable the security system, but I can't guarantee it will work again in the future... If interested, read on.
Under the rear passenger seat there is a wire harness. Look for the purple wire with the yellow tracer. Cut it and touch it to a ground point (scrape a spot down to metal somewhere nearby). This should disable the security system. If I remember correctly back to when I had the same problem with my 94 Grand, I actually crimped an electrical connector to the end of the wire and attached it to ground permanently with a screw. I had no security system, but I could drive my Jeep!

It could be the security system or maybe a crank sensor.

If you remove the glove box you will find the alarm module behind it next to a relay box. If you unplug the module the Jeep should start.
