Sounds like a dead battery or close to dead. Try jump starting the engine and see if, when it is running, all those symptoms disappear!

    Not a dead battery but bad positive cable, Thanks for all your help. I tested the battery and seen that it was good and started thinking it was the ignition switch. glad i started back on the battery part.

SOURCE: 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a loud ticking noise, won't start.

Your problem is likely a bad battery and/or corrosion on the battery terminals. Remove the cables from the battery terminals and clean them with a wire brush or other tool. NOTE: always remove the negative cable first and reconnect it last. Reconnect the cables and then try to start/jump the vehicle again. If that doesn't clear the problem, take the battery to your local auto parts store or supplier and have them check it. You will probably need a new one.

SOURCE: Where is the camshaft sensor located on my 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee

If you still have a cap rotor and ignition wires, it's inside the distributor. If not, it is the part where the distributor used to be (center rear of the engine behind the intake manifold)

Sounds like you need to perform a relearn on the anti theft system, it's not recognizing the key if this happens with the key inserted. Might want to look online for a reset procedure for Jeep. GM has you keeping the key in the ignition in the on position for 10 minutes.

It sounds like a loose wire to the starter, check the wiring going to the starter for any corrosion, breaks and make sure all the bolts and nuts are tight.

I have a 99 grand cherokee iwas driving about 10


check your fuel filter it could be restricted that won't show up on test. A faulty fuel pump wont show up either...next time it stalls check to see if you can hear the pump running when you turn the key on. (filter may be part of the regulator on top of the pump unit on top but outside the tank)

The key needs to be replaced. Sometimes, not all, for some reason the key is not detected and your vehicle will not start. If you have a spare try it, if not you will need to go to dealership.

99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Brake light problem


You can adjust the switch by putting your thumbs on either side of the switch plunger and pushing toward the brake lever. The switch shaft will ratchet into the new position which is will then be depressed by the brake lever when it is the brake is not being depressed.
