Immobilizer system in 99 jeep cherokee sport

My 99 jeep cherokee sport will crank but will not turn over. I drove it all day yesterday and had no problems went out this morning and it will crank but will not turn over. The no key sign comes on the dash. The owners manual says it is the immobilizer i was wondering if there was anyway to reset the immobil;izer without having to take it to the dealership i don't really want to spend 200 or more on it. Thank you for your help

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Sport it just won't start. It cranks, that's it. It was running fine yesterday.


If it was running yesterday and only cranks this morning you need to determine which you are missing - spark or fuel. The spark is easy - pull a plug and let it spark to the frame. while cranking. If you have spark then you have to start checking the fuel system.

99 Jeep Cherokee Sport, 4.0L -won't start


you need to have it connected to an OBD2 machine and watch if you are missing the cam sensor showing RPMs
or if your missing crank sensors RPMs,
it could be a wiring problem or computer if your seeing the RPMs from both sensors,and the last thing i would check is hooking up a fuel gauge to the reed valve and watch what fuel pressure you have while cranking,if the cam sensor is the culprit it will turn the fuel off after the cranking.

My 1999 jeep sport starts but will not turn over


If your original key is grey and circular it has "SKIM". If it is a black triangle, then it doesn't. If the original key will not start the veh then is is likely not the security. Look at the fuel rail on top of the engine next to the valve cover. There is a shraeder valve (like a tire valve stem) a quick press on the valve should squirt a little fuel if the fuel pump is good.

I have a 99 jeep cherokee sport will not start


Seems to be a chronic problem with crank position sensors... On yours it is tested between b&c terminals and should have no continuity there. (should show an open circuit if good)

99 cherokee sport starts hard after sitting over night or 3 to 4 hrs. starts right away if key is turned on and off2to3 times represurizing the system


Could be related to the fuel system. What have you replaced or checked so far. I would look at the battery and the charging system. Also look for a fuel leak, pump pressure, and the vehicles maintenance/repair history.

1999 Jeep Sport will not start


It could be your Crank Shaft Sensor. That's what it was on my 99 Cherokee Sport the first time that happened.
