Yesterday, I went out to go to work and Jeep wouldn't start. Cranked once and when I turned the key again, nothing. Figured it may be the battery since I had never replaced the battery when I bought it used in March. It currently has 56K miles on it. My neighbors came out and helped me try to jump the battery. No go, but it DID crank this time. Figured the battery was just really dead and had my neighbor drive me to auto parts store to get a new battery. Put it in and it still won't start. Husband came home and checked the relays - all fine, and then disconnected the line from the external fuel filter to see if fuel was being pumped through it. Cranked the engine again and no fuel was being pumped through it. We also were not able to hear the fuel pump turn on with the key in the on position. Purchased a new fuel pump from a dealer, installed it today and it still won't start.
We didn't replace the external filter. Could this be the problem?
Is there an emergency fuel cut-off switch to the fuel pump on this vehicle?
Or is it possible that this is not fuel related at all and an ignition problem? Or maybe the Sentry key? Would my check engine light come on if this were the case? My check engine light is not on.
Car ran beautifully until yesterday. We had even driven it 120 miles each way to my parents house in Pennsylvania on Christmas Day with no problems.

I had the same problem with mine. I have the same year Jeep. The Remote door lock also wouldn't work (Not on drivers door anyway!). Here's what I had found out from a co-worker with same vehicle. The wires in the door that run to the control panel on door for windows has been broken. You probably have several broken wires inside the "Rubber boot" you see when opening the door. You will have to take off the interior door panel, be careful to remove any wires and rod connectors when doing so. Then open the rubber seal. Find where the wires come in to door. Remove boot. Locate broken wires inside the boot section. You will then need to sodder in a 1'-2' wire to extend the broken wire(s). You may also decide to extend the unbroken wires now, just so you might not have to go through all of this again, later. I hope this helps out. I had found out it is a very common Jeep Grand Cherokee problem.
put the key in the drivers door lock it with the key still in the lock unlock it and then pull the key out do this three times that is the factory built in security programing shut off system for jeeps and chrysler
On Jeeps the easiest way , and sometimes simplest ,, call the dealer,, by turning the key in the door to the unlock position 2 times resets it and cures the problem,, your local dealewr can tell you for your year
Have 2004 laredo that the power locks/windows do not work from the inside and the dome lights stay on after the car is running and the locks do not lock automatically after it starts running? Now car will not start, will not turn over. When I turn key back to off position - the lights and dashboard go crazy. Any thoughts!
