I have problem in my jeep grand cherokee when iam start the engine (mycar) is ok started bot when engine start 10 mins after that the engine offline and i dont know the problem please help me!!!


sounds like maybe the immobilizer is activating. try using the key to lock and then unlock the driver's door, resetting the alarm system. the lights should be flashing when this happens but you never know. its a shot in the dark.

Good luck

Gauges top working security system not working vehicle will start but only runs 2 seconds


fuses, check all fuses in all fuse boxes. under dash and hood.
the IMMO SKIM , stops fueling of the engine.
the SKIM lamp in the dash shows, that. it sticks on or flashes
you have a transponder key ,right?
and you insert the key as the oper guide states, and the lamp SKIM
self tests. then must go out, if not, the engine will never run more than 2 seconds by Design.
  1. so fix the dead dash first.
  2. then get the SKIM lamp out
  3. then start car.

Gauges on Dashboard


Are the dash lights working ok? Does the jeep start normally? If so, then there is most probably a fault in the instrument cluster.

My 96 jeep cherokee will start for a couple sec. then shut down my cehck engine light do not come on or none of my gauges can anyone help me


The flashing light on your car is telling there is a problem. On some vehicles require a OBD2 code scanner for the diagnosis. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee- When I turn the engine on, it runs for about two seconds and then stalls. The gauges do not move when I do this, and the windows won't go down either. I have checked all of the...


Is there a little key icon staying lit on the right side of your dash? If so it's a sentry key, which is an immobilizer key. You need the gray one to start the Jeep the blacks one is not chipped.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't Turnover


Jeep 2001 Grand Cherokee turns over but never starts. Doesn't run for 2 seconds and turn off. Immobilization indicator does light, flash once and remain on. All analog gauges on instrument panel are not functioning. Everything else electrically works in vehicle.
