Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

Jeep won't turn over

I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo that sees pretty regular use. One morning I went out to run an errand, and the vehicle would not turn over. Panel lights came on, but nothing in the starter. Checked battery, trickled it up to full, and tried again. No sound, no bump to starter. It must be electrical, but I'm mystified. Is there something I should check? The manual is no help. and I live out in the country. I welcome suggestions. Thanks.

Check for a Starter Relay. If you replace this Relay and it still will not start You will need a new Starter.

1997 jeep grand cherokee won't start after alarm went off


I just had the same prblem. Reconnect your alarm first of all. You need to use your key bob "remote" to deactivate the alarm before starting. It is a feature "good one" i might add that should someone try to steal it the jeep will not start until u deactivate it w theke bob.

1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo my dash lights went out and the jeep wont start what do i do HELP


You have gotten two problems. First your Vehicle Theft Security System (ignition inhibit feature) has been activated. To disarm it just enter the key and rotate either door or liftgate. If this does not work, locate under in the hinge of the driver door module a violet wire with a brown tracer, put a jumper between that line and ground. That single action should allow you to start the engine. Now, the second problem is dash lights. With the ignition off, you turn the headlamp switch to the right and the dash panel should light. If it doesn't you need to start looking a the basics, that is, fuses/breakers, voltage, ground, the switch itself.
