If there is a remote engine starter installed in the Jeep, it might be malfunctioning and trying to start on it's own. Also, some remote start units have a timer or temperature sensor that starts the vehicle automatically if the temperature drops too low.

2005 jeep crank no start

Your Jeep should have a "chipped" ignition key. If it does, then the programming message is telling you to insert a NEW key which has not been programmed. Somehow your jeep confused itself into thinking this way. This sometimes happens when physically inserting the key too quickly into the ignition switch after using the remote start function/ feature. If you are in a bind, you can try disconnecting your car battery and leave it unplugged for 10+ minutes. Then reconnect it and try to start your vehicle. If that does not work then maybe it is possible to obtain another NEW "SENTRY KEY" and have your your jeep program it to possibly quit the no start program loop. If these options do not work for you, then unfortunately the vehicles computer module will have to be "flashed" and troubleshooted at the dealer.

The security system locked the jeeps ignition but i dont know how to restart the system and i try to start it and it wont not even jumping it help

if you have both ' original ' keys that came with the Jeep - you can try and flip them through the system and get the Jeeps computer to accept them,, take both keys and sit in the drivers seat -- with one key put it in the ignition and turn to the on position - wait about 15 -20 seconds, remove the key and then put the other key in and turn to the on postion -- wait 15 to 20 seconds,remove the key and now put the first key back into the ignition and turn to the on postion and wait 15 to 20 seconds,,, now try and start the Jeep.
now if one of the keys is not an original key ( a clone key ) -- then this might not work,, and you will need a automotive locksmith to come out and re-program your keys to the Jeeps computer. since you already have keys, this is not a very expensive trip -- you will just be charged for the service call and the programming of the Jeep.

Have a 2008 jeep grand cherokee laredo put key in ignition and dash board says damaged key and another service security key jeep wont start

This sounds like a bad chip in the key, try a spare key, if it starts with spare key then key is bad, if it doesnt start then you will need reprograming

My jeep won't start can it be my key that is

If your car alarm was set off it would prevent the jeep from starting.

Disconnect the battery and let sit for a while then reconnect. The computer should flush it's info and you might be golden.

Good luck.

I have a 2003 jeep libierty .. the key is placed in ignition but wont start the car,, the string wheel is hard to move back and forth it is stuck .. the key dosen't start the jeep .. i was stuck for 2hr...

I may be misreading your post but, it sounds like the steering lock is preventing you from turning the key... sometimes you have to put some force to turn the wheel. It wouldn't hurt either to apply a little bit of lubricant in to the key cylinder. If you are able to turn the key to the start position and it still doesn't start, there is a good chance your battery or starter might be dead. Hope this helps!

2000 Jeep grand Cherokee will start then turn off

Replace the key Im the forman for a jeep dealership. The dealer should have told you that in the first place. there is no reason the key would unprogram itself unless the chip is intermitently shorting out. If you have another key start it if it stay running u know the key is at fault. hope this helps u out.
