Buy a tube of lock cylinder lube (never use any type of oil) from any hardware store, spray the powdered graphite into the cylinder and then insert the key several times while trying to turn it, if this doesn't work u will need to replace the cylinder and have the anti theft programmed for the new key (if so equipped).

I have a 99 jeep grand cherokee 4.7, the alarm went crazy and the wont start. guages dont budge and horn keeps honking and lights flashing. sentry key light is on in guage cluster any help


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.

Keyless remote 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo programing

  1. Programming the First Transmitter
    • 1

      Unlock all of the Jeepicon1.png Grand Cherokee's doors and open the driver's side door. Keeping the door open, lock it using the manual lock on the door itself.

    • 2

      Put the manual key into the ignition and switch it to the "On" or "Run" position, whichever applicable, without starting the engine.

    • 3

      Point the remote at the receiver (located by the little bulb on the caricon1.png ceiling) and hold down the "Lock" button for up to 5 seconds.

    • 4

      When the driver's side door unlocks, you know the remote has been programmed correctly. If you are only programming one remote, jump to the next step. If not, manually re-lock the driver's side door and repeat steps 5 and 6 using each remote you would like to program and then continue.

    • 5

      Turn the key to the "Off" position and turn the ignition on immediately. This must be done within 20 seconds of programming the last remote. You're finished!

How do I know if my ignition switch is bad on my 1995 jeep grand cherokee lerado 5.2 liter


The ignition switch does not usually go bad on Grand Cherokees but the ignition key cylinder does and it usually just stop turning, stuck in place. Key cylinder can be removed by taking the steering wheel off to access the little clip that's holding the key cylinder in place, inside the steering column.

Ignition on my 2004 jeep grand Cherokee is locked, how do I unlock the ignition? Keys goes in ignition, door chim works when key is in ignition. But the key won't turn it's stuck.


tap the ignition lock cylinder with the plastic end of a scrwedriver (with the key removed). then insert the key and try to start. Try this several times. If you get it to turn immediately replace the igntion lock cylinder. The cylinder needs to be in the on position in order for the lock button to be depressed so that the cylinder can be removed from the housing.

If you still can't get it to turn than you will have to drill out the lock button in order to get the old lock cylinder out. I wouldn't recommend doing this unless you have some experience and understand what you are doing.

The lock button can be accessed by removing the lower steering column cover.

Key won't turn


The key problem could be a worn out key that is not disengaging the tumblers in the ignition switch or tumblers that are sticking(squirt a little wd40 in the ignition cylinder and move the key in and out a couple of times) inside the switch. Make sure the shifter is fully in park.
