First I suggest scanned the fault codes stored there; turn the ignition key (without start engine) "on/off on/off on" and read odometer codes Pxxxx. Note this codes and send us for other details.

My car wont start, when i turn the key all i hear is dead silence


Check your battery (cables to make sure they're tight and the voltage a charged battery will have between 11.5 and 12 volts) and your fuses before doing anything else. If both turn out to be good let me know and I'll give you further advise. good luck

It sure sounds like the switch, but it may be the key cylinder binding. If the key turns to the same place it used to then replace the switch. If it dosen't then replace the key cylinder.

1996 Jeep Cherokee Classic, I-6, Automatic Runs great, normally starts great. Occasionally go to start the car and it is totally dead - no dome light, no door buzzer, nothing happens when I turn the key....


first off clean the battery terminals, then follow the ground wire to the body and engine ensure they have good connections. sometimes the wire on the back of the engine that goes to the body breaks. good luck

I THINK YOUR RIGHT! CHECK FUSES AND RELAYS FOR POWER ALSO IF THE POWER SUPPLY TO STARTER IS NOT A GOOD CONNECTION THEN IT WILL FAIL TO EVEN TRY TO START. GOOD LUCK!

Jeep wont start checked connection and fuses


Check the battery, it sounds like it's flat. Try charging the battery to see if it recovers, but if the battery is about 3 years old or more it is likely to have failed and replacement is the only viable solution.

96 jeep that wont start.


Locate the starter and have someone turn the key for you. While they are turning the key, check for 12v+ at the smallest wire on the starter. If there is 12v+ present then the starter is bad.

I have a 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6 cylinder. You might want to check the Ignition Off Draw (IOD) fuse in the Electrical Power Distribution center located in the black box located just in front of the coolant fill container on the left side under the hood. This is a 40 amp fuse, orange in color and is the orange fuse closest to the firewall. This fuse is used to put the jeep in storage if you don't plan to drive it for a while. Which would stop the current flow and not allow your battery to die. GOOD LUCK!
