Your vehicle is equipped with a passive theft deterrent system that utilizes a "pill" embedded in your key along with a receiver contained in the steering column. If the system doesn't recognize your key, the vehicle will crank but not start and the theft light will flash rapidly. If you have another key, try it. Otherwise, you're in for a trip to the dealer where they can either reset the system or troubleshoot it further.
it is the microchip on your key.. you have to reset the key by sticking it into your ignition and turn it to the run position for 5 mins. at this time the light should stop blinking then turn your key to the off position for 1 sec. repeat six times then your last attempt the car would start guarantee.... notice: as you turn the key to run position the light would blink rapidly for 5mins.. right when it stops turn to the off position for 1 sec.. remember six times..
TRY REPROGRAM KEY .PUT KEY IN IGNITION SWITCH TURN IGNITION SWITCH ON POSITION 20 SECONDS DONT START ENGINE WAIT 20 SECONDS TURN OFF SWITCH THEN TURN SWITCH BACK ON 20 SECONDS WATCH THE THEFT SECURITY LIGHT BLINKING.WHEN THEFT STOP BLINKING VECHICLE WILL CRANK.IF LIGHT STILL BLINKING.TRY FEW MORE TIMES KEY IN SWITCH ON POSITION FOR 20 SECONDS.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT CAR KEYS IN SWITCH IF NOT WRONG SET OF CAR KEYS WILL SET OFF THEFT SECURITY SYSTEM.IF KEY RESETTING TRICK DONT WORK.CHECK BATTERY POWER MAKE SURE YOUR BATTERY HAS 12.5 VOLTS AND CHECK SECURITY THEFT FUSE.IF ALL LOOKS GOOD YOUR SECURITY HAS TO BE CHECKED OUT AT THE DEALERSHIP.
this is one way to reset it :
first make sure the battery is fully charged , then do the following:
key in the ignition but do not crank the motor, just leave it at the
ignition mode for ten minutes ,then turn it off POSITION for 5 seconds then REPEAT again 2 more times. at the 3 rd time youre gonna notice the ANTI THEFT light on dash to blink. when doing the last step , remove key , inserted again and turn on motor , good luck , AJ
put key in driver side door lock and unlock it should turn off the alarm and you should be able to start it, it will do this anytime the power is distrupted or if you unlock the jeep from any door other than the driver real pain....
