Hello, due to your symptoms your ignition switch on top of your steering column UNDER your dash is bad. This is very common and this will fix your problem. I have replaced many of these and if you want help I will be happy to help you through it.
This is a picture of a Ford set-up which is exactly the same as Chrysler and GM.

The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible.

On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.

The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company.
To replace the switch:

  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

Does your vehicle have an alarm system? If not it is most likely a loose connection in ignition cylinder or somewhere else. You will want to take it to a qualified mechanic and have it serviced. If you need further assistance please let me know, also take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thank you,
Lee

Please clarify what type of vehicle your having trouble with. Your under a main topic of 2002 L Series Saturn, but have also given a topic of 1993 Jeep Cherokee.

Next, describe if your vehicle does have a security system, and if so, is it a factory system, or aftermarket.

Re:"jeep will not start if the check engine light is not on when you turn the key after you play with it a while the light will come on turn the key it will start"

That is not the alarm system, when it is the alarm either will always unlock, or stay locked.

That is a faulty ignition, or a different problem, starting the check engine light, replace the ignition cylinder.

Do a scan reading on the car ECU computer module to find out if there is any additional problem, surely there is a reason why the check engine light is coming on.

Check engne light is required to come on to indicate all emisions are electronically sending the correct signal. Sounds like one is getting worn out. Take it a local shop. It may show up if you tell them what you indicated here. I am to assume it goes out once started?

On one of my friends cars he had an alarm. It went out on him. We changed every thing we could think of to no help on starting the car. We then removed the alarm and it started right up. There was a kill switch in the alarm. Your alarm might be going out.

Hi, Please check the CEL (Check Engine Light) code. You can get them free at any Advanced Auto Parts.
This will give us more idea about what is happening.
Also check if the car key is good. Try starting with any duplicate keys you have.

The ignition switch(not the key cylinder),located inside the steering column needs replacing.
This problem has been reported on multiple year models.It is not security related,but due to non constant power being sent during the initial starting procedure.

Something set it on. Some conditions will send this as an alert, but the engine will still run. It is not optimum and usually then puts the computer in "open-loop" instead of "closed-loop". Closed-loop is when all is functioning as it should and the sensors are feeding good data to the computer so it can monitor fuel mixture for optimum. In open-loop, the computer "guesses" at the fuel mixture so usually uses more fuel than neccessary. The way to find out why the lite came on is get into the computer & see what codes are there.   If you still cannot figure it out, take it to a good Jeep mechanic to diagnose & fix but yes it will cost. You might also try an OBD I scanner, I have seen them for about $30-50 depending on the features. . Hope this helps

Firstly I would check your fuel pump relay and the wires leading to it. Then Check the wires leading to your car's computer. May also be a problem with a connection in your ignition

    IT IS A PROBLEM WITH THE ANTI- THEFT. This usually happens due to a bad keychip or faulty computer

  • Nate Stansfield
    Nate Stansfield Jan 23, 2009

    it's possible that there is no power coming to the engine computer. It might be a broken wire or faulty relay or burnt fuse. IN MANY GM CARS, IT IS BECAUSE OF A FAULTY COMPUTER OR BAD KEYCHIP.

    it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key.
    If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds

    I TRUELY BELIEVE YOU HAVE A BAD IGNITION MODULE

  • Nate Stansfield
    Nate Stansfield Jan 24, 2009

    My first solution would be
    ignition
    other possible problems would be
    igniton module
    keychip
    secruity system
    faulty computer/ecm.pcm

    Most cars have problems when the light turns on, but you have a problem wihen the light turns off, so I would have to say ignition or ecm/pcm (electronic/power control module)

    Unlock the drivers door with key resets Alarm if it is Factory Installed.

  • David McCreery
    David McCreery Jan 17, 2009

    Ok, try this.
    Put the key in the ignition, and turn forward
    all the way just before cranking. Then within
    5 seconds, press and hold in the valet/overide
    button, found under the dash area,
    until the installed LED (the blinking light)
    in your dash area goes off, and the siren chirps twice.
    (Your valet switch might be the toggle (on/off) type.
    in this case, key on, flip switch in oposite direction,
    key off.)

    This should reset the alarm.

    Just Repeat these steps to place it
    back to valet mode.

    That should do it.
    If you want to remove it at this point,
    take it to your neighborhood installer
    for this, or buy the wiring chart for
    the vehicle, and reverse engineer it wire
    by wire, until it's safely removed.

    If it does not work out this way, you will have
    to replace the system with one you know how
    to operate and what to expect.

    If this however is the factory system:
    The PURPLE/YELLOW factory disarm wire
    is in the harness to the drivers
    door, inside the drivers kick, in a
    black plug. Locate this wire splice
    into it with the same guage wire,
    then ground it to a solid chassis point.

    This takes out the factory alarm for however
    long you keep this wire grounded.

    It is the only way I know of to get around
    the factory alarm system in this truck.

    Let me know what happens.

Welcome to Fixya! Yes, The alarm has a Starter Kill and Fuel Shutoff. You will need to get this Reset. I am Assuming that the Alarm is Factory Installed???? It could tell you in the Owners Manual how to Reset the Alarm System. If not just call the Parts Desk at your Local Dealership and they will tell you how to do it Correctly.

If I understand you correctly, the battery is fine, the engine turns over and tries to start but won't - correct? If this is the case and there are are no codes, no check engine light staying on, then I suggest checking the fuel pump. A quick check for yourself, find the fuel rail, twist the cap off the schreader valve (looks like a metal version of your tire fill valve) press down on the center and have someone try to start the engine (put a rag underneath the valve). If you get a large gush of fuel the pump may be ok, if not then your fuel pump has probably failed.

  • Antonio Buenafe Jr.

    This could be a couple of things like a fuel pump that has quit working, a coil pack that has gone bad or a crank sensor maybe.

    I can help you check a few things but you'll need access to a test light and a multimeter.  Right off I would suggest spraying a carb/injector cleaner in to the throttle body (aerosol kind of spray) and have someone else try and start the vehicle.  It may start up and then stall out.  If it does then you can try spraying while having your buddy try and restart the car.  Vehicles that are starving fuel fuel can actually be run off of just that can and so you may be able to do the same.  

    If you vehicle runs you've got either no fuel in the tank, the pump is bad or a wiring problem preventing the pump from running.  Listen for a whine coming from the rear when you cycle the key from on to run.  If you have no whine then hit the tank pretty hard a couple of times while trying to restart.  If it finally catches and runs you'll need a new pump.

    There's a chance your problem is electrical and spark related.  You'll need at least a multimeter to start the next part of the checking so let me know what you find there.

    you have to go on/off on/off on in under 5 seconds, don't try to start it though, it will flash the check engine light- three flashes, a short pause, and five flashes means code35, then a longer pause and then the next number, when it gives you code55 that means its done. it will not show you all known codes for the car though, you can get it done at autozone though free. to get the meanings of the codes i suggest a haynes auto manual for your car (at autozone bout 15 dollars) easy to understand lots of pictures its how i knew to do the test on mine good luck crazymat

If the check engine light is not on when u turn the key to run then the computer is not getting power, the light is supposed to prove out as soon as the key is on, hen u start it will go out after a few seconds, I would check or replace the ECM (engine computer) relay and or check the fuse for the ECM for a poor connection, I would also check the connector to the ECM under the dash, this could also be an ignition switch problem, in that the ECM is not getting power when the key is turned on die to a bad contact in the ignition switch, this is not a security system issue or the light would be flashing at you.

1993 dodge Grand Cherokee with a 318 hard starting when cold until things under hood click and fuel pump runs.


Your jeep ecu is in need of repair. It has what is referred to as the delayed check engine light problem. If you'll notice, next time you try starting the jeep, it will not start when the check engine light finally comes on, on the dash. The fuel pump will only come on when the ecu finally energizes the relays, and that's when all the clicking starts. Look on ebay for an ecu repair service.

1993 jeep grand cherokee v8 no spark from coil


Look to see if the check engine light come on, on your dashboard, when you turn the ignition on. If that light does not come on, then your ecu computer is in need of repair and your jeep will not start until that light does come on.
Alternately, if that light is on, it could be your crank sensor that's bad on the jeep.

Fuel pump not operating. 1993 jeep. Need wiring diagram.


A non working fuel pump in those early year Grand Cherokees is usually either a bad pump or an ecu in need of repair. Make sure that the check engine light comes on, on the dashboard, when you turn the key to on. If that check engine light does not come on, the ecu is bad. If it does come on, more than not the fuel pump is shot and will have to be replaced.

The first years of that body shape, like the 93 Grand Cherokee, had ecu computer problems. Next time it won't start, check to see if the check engine light does lights up on the dash, when you turn the ignition on, before cranking. If it does not, the fuel pump will not kick on, until that check engine light does come on. It's referred to as the delayed check engine light problem, on early to mid 90's Jeeps. If you find out that is indeed the problem, you can have the ecu computer repaired.

1993 jeep grand cherokee wont start till check engen light comes on


Your ecu computer is in need of repair. You have what is known as the Delayed Check Engine Light problem. There are a few components inside the ecu that are slowly failing and eventually will completely fail. The ignition has to be turned on, for a few minutes, and the jeep won't start until the check engine light eventually comes on. This is because the ecu feeds power to the fuel pump and injector relays and won't feed power until that light comes on. Have it repaired.

I have a grand cherokee 1993 it wont im not getting fire


Might be your crank sensor, your coil, your distributor or even your ecu. All of those being bad will prevent the jeep from firing. If you do not have a check engine light lighting up on the dash when you turn the key to on, before trying to crank the engine, then it's your ecu which is bad and needs repair.

Won't start but engine is crank my jeep model 1993 fuel gasoline


Make sure that when you turn the ignition key on that you see the check engine light does light up on the dash, before you try cranking the engine. If no check engine light is on, the jeep won't start. If the check engine light is on and it still won't start then it could be your crank sensor, fuel pump or a host of other problems not allowing it to start.
