    Same problem. 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. It's been towed four times in the last 2 months. Dealership says they have replaced everything in the ignition. Everything lights up when you turn the key but no chance of it sounding like it's even trying to start.

    I have an 04 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (63, 000 miles) that will not start at times. Yesterday after giving up and having it towed, it started in neutral (not park) when arriving at shop on tow truck. All gages and accessories work, but when turning ignition nothing happens. No click, no spin, no crank, nothing; as if the ignition switch was disconnected from starter. Mechanic has checked once and said starter was not the problem. HELP!

You may want to go have your battery checked out. Most places will do this for free.

Sincerely,

Electrical problems


Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens.
But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much.
Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over

charge the battery and once fully charged, do a LOAD test on it, clean all the connections and start the car ,, check the voltage at the battery posts with the car running, you should get between 13.5 and 14.5 volts, if not, replace the alternator , if you do, the battery and the cables just needed some attention

you need to get a new ign. lock cylinder and chip key. Or you can get a lock cylinder and copy your old key with a regular key no chip. Take new cylinder, put old chip key in it. Plug into harness at the bottom of steering column just behind the dash, fine orange wire from existing one in the column. Hide lock cylinder under dash and start car with copy of old key.

Hello: Try this procedure, Turn key on attempt to start engine leave key on, the security light should be blinking, wait 10 minutes. The security light should be off. Turn key off for 10 seconds, turn key back on (DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START) wait another 10 minutes. Turn key off for 10 seconds. Do the procedure again as in step 2. At the end of the third time turn key off then ten seconds later attempt to start the car. It should start.

The coded key probably needs to relearn. Turn ignition to crank and release. Let sit in on position (engine off of coarse) for a full 10 min. turn off for 30 sec. and repeat 3 times engine should start. This procedure should take 30 min. so a booster is needed to maintain a full 12 volts. Do not attempt w/out a charger connected;

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck
