Problems starting my jeep

Went out of town and came back the very next day i had to turn the ignition key several times to get my jeep started. took it to shop and they said the battery was bad, but i realized that after turning the ignition key my gages were not reading on my dash (gas, batt, oil, etc) i believe this is the reason im having problems. the only way i've been able to remotely start it is by keep turning it until the battery dies and somehow that triggers the gages, leave the key turned forward jump it off and it starts right up. what could this be

It may be the shifter interlock switch - jiggle the shifter into and out of Park.
It may also be the Ground/neg battery cable - they corrode at the fenderwell every 2-3 years. Remove from battery and fenderwell, bruch off white powdery corrosion. Reinstall.

Your windows and your door locks are controlled by the door modules in your vehicle. There is one for thye driver's dorr and for the passenger door. The door modules, in turn, are controlled and monitored by the Body Control Module. I would recommend begining diagnosis by having your computer system scanned. It may be just a simple loose connection in one of the PCI Data circuits causing a non-communication problem.

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.

you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.

Not Starting


I have a 1997 Town and Country minivan and it would not start nor would the odometer lights in the dash come on .It would start and immediately die. took it finally to the dealership and they said it was the BCM fixed that for $899.20 it worked for one day then back to normal as soon as I got it running again by jumping it which sometimes worked not always i took it back too the dealership and of course the whole time they had it it started right up everytime. finally it didn't and they checked it again they then said it was the cluster which they purchased a used one for $250.00 plus labor this time it cost me $503.74. And I have had not one problem with it it starts every time and drive great. So my advice is to take it to the dealership and ask them to check your BCM and your Cluster. Good Luck I am now happy with my Town and Country again. I
