The ignition switch is probably bad, it is located in the column.

Can anyone help me out I lost my only key of Jeep Grand cheeroke limited 1999. I had one replacement but it's not with a chip.the Jeep starts up and goes off.Any solution to bypass this system please.


A question often asked, so I wrote this :>)

Want to bypass your vehicle security system?

The short answer is you can't!

All modern cars have alarms and immobilizers. There is a chip in the key and a chip in the ignition lock. If both are present, the ECM (engine control module) releases power to the ignition circuit. When you turn the key, the starter spins the engine and you get a spark. If any one of those three items are not in the chain, you get the engine to turn, but no spark. There is no way to beat the system.

The immobilizer is in place to stop exactly what you are trying to do.

Security light stays onJeep Compass


IMMO cuts fuel. that is its job, fix that secuity system.
the FSM covers this.
if you tried both the key fobs , that came with car?
do so... now....!

if not why not?
are you using only a single key , to test this? do so.
no other keys near ignition switch.
do have this, the oper guide?
page 14?

http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/jeep-compass-owners-manuals/

next is to read the IMMO sections (immoblizer) in FSM
or alldata.com to find true cause of IMMO tripped.

quote page 14, (it's clear , no?)
SENTRY KEY
The Sentry Key Immobilizer System prevents unauthorized
operation of the vehicle by disabling the engine.
The system will shut the engine off after 2 seconds of
running if an invalid key is used to start the vehicle. This
system utilizes ignition keys which have an electronic
chip (transponder) embedded into them. Only keys that
have been programmed to the vehicle can be used to start
and operate the vehicle.
The Sentry Key Immobilizer System does not need to be
armed or activated. Operation of the system is automatic
regardless of whether or not the vehicle is locked or
unlocked. During normal operation, the Theft Alarm/
Immobilizer Light will come on for three (3) seconds
immediately after the ignition switch is turned on for a
bulb check. Afterwards, if the bulb remains on, this
indicates a problem with the electronics.

If the bulb begins to flash after the bulb check, this
indicates that an invalid key has been used to start the
vehicle.
Both of these conditions will result in the engine
being shut off after two (2) seconds of running.
Keep in mind that a key which has not been programmed
is also considered an invalid key even if it is cut to fit the
ignition lock cylinder for that vehicle.
If the Theft Alarm/Immobilizer Light comes on during
normal vehicle operation (vehicle has been running for
longer than 10 seconds), a fault has been detected in the
electronics and the vehicle should be serviced as soon as
possible.

The security system locked the jeeps ignition but i dont know how to restart the system and i try to start it and it wont not even jumping it help


if you have both ' original ' keys that came with the Jeep - you can try and flip them through the system and get the Jeeps computer to accept them,, take both keys and sit in the drivers seat -- with one key put it in the ignition and turn to the on position - wait about 15 -20 seconds, remove the key and then put the other key in and turn to the on postion -- wait 15 to 20 seconds,remove the key and now put the first key back into the ignition and turn to the on postion and wait 15 to 20 seconds,,, now try and start the Jeep.
now if one of the keys is not an original key ( a clone key ) -- then this might not work,, and you will need a automotive locksmith to come out and re-program your keys to the Jeeps computer. since you already have keys, this is not a very expensive trip -- you will just be charged for the service call and the programming of the Jeep.

I changed oil on my 2006 Tacoma pick up, how do I turn off my maint light. Tks John


Try this procedure.

1. Turn the ignition key up one notch. (The dash lights will not be on)

2. Press and hold down the Trip Meter Button next to the odometer.

3. While continuing to press down on the Trip Meter Button turn the ignition key to the next notch or the "Run" position, the dash lights will come on but do not start the engine.

4. Continue to press down on the Trip Meter Button until the Maintenance Required light turns off.

The Maintenance Required light should now be reset.

I finally found the solution. It is actually detailed in the owner's manual but you really have to hunt for it. Look at page 450/451.

Step 1: Switch the display to the trip meter A with the engine running.

Step 2: Turn the engine off (but don't turn the key all the way to where you can remove it from the ignition).

Step 3: While pressing the trip meter reset button, turn the key to IGNITION ON (but don't start the engine). Continue to press and hold the trip meter reset button until the trip meter displays "000000".

The blinkers and wipers and radio dont work unless the key is turned backwards, if the jeep is running none of these work, this is a 1999 jeep wrangler tj


sounds like the accessory side of the ignition switch is not working. When the key is on run position the same wire that is hot coming out when the key is turned to accessory should be hot, along with the ignition wire that runs the engine. (hot meaning it has 12v)

1988 Jeep Cherokee 5 liter motor straight 6. Runs one day, and then the next day, no power to the spark plugs. It seems to have a mind of its own. Even while driving, it seems to lose power to the spark...


At the age of you Jeep I would be looking at a worn ignition switch (The part that turns when you turn the key).They wear out causing a very intermitant connection some times it works and some times it doesn't ,Going over a small bump in the road is often enough to break the connection causing the engine to stop.
Start the engine and try gently wiggling the key and see if it dies.....
Hope this helps.

2000 Jeep grand Cherokee will start then turn off


Replace the key Im the forman for a jeep dealership. The dealer should have told you that in the first place. there is no reason the key would unprogram itself unless the chip is intermitently shorting out. If you have another key start it if it stay running u know the key is at fault. hope this helps u out.

No spark from ignition module on hot start


95 JEEP WRANGLER 4 CYL

No spark. I have changed out the distributor cap, rotor, wiring from coil to cap, and coil was replaced. I checked the distibutor by turning ignition key and observing the rotor turn. What else can I check. I did not observe a module.
