and the 1mill post with a user lost their operators guide.
buy one and not get stranded. (please)
learn to read and identify all dash cluster warning lamps or get stranded.
no crank?
cranks robustly but will not start.?
which is it?
is the fuel tank full?
are the head lights working, with full brightness?
did you check all fuses in both fuse boxes.?>
did you wiggle the gear shifter (A/T)?
did you try cranking in Neutral... bam it now cranks? ask.

if it cranks robustly
then does it have spark. ??
if it tries to start and kills in 2sec. that is ASD doing that.
ASD cuts fueling , if there are up to 7 major errors .
the laws of ASD are here,clearly.
if the relay closes and drops out, cranking, BINGO !

where to start... see if lights turn on, if not charge battery, once battery is charge try again, if cranks then could be battery or alternator, if not could be starter, spark plugs, coilpack... after youve looked at that let me know, ill adv further.

On a 2000 grand jeep cheroke it wont start and noise xoming from alarm system box is there a fuse i can take out so i can start it to make it home

no , removing fuses (left out) never caused stock jeeps to run.
nice guess though.
you need to read your operators guide.
it shows you how to read the cluster lights and see why
car will not start.
is the SKIM , immoblizer active (light glows, saying the key is wrong)
did you try both key fobs, (car had 2 new) never ever run cars with IMMO with one key or you WILL be stranded.. now or soon, or later.
pick one. what does it matter when, why stack deck against self?

sorry if you r manual is missing that too is a deck stack event.
Or google search all day for one
or post photo of dash cluster key on, in color.

keep in mind we are blind here, and we can see what your are doing either.

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.

Why don't the check engine light wont come

It' could be a burnt out bulb . Do a key on engine off check. Light check of the instrument cluster. If other lights are on then either take it upon your self to remove the cluster and change the bulb

Wont start, when you turn the key nothing happens,

make sure thre isn't a red light on or flashing in the instrument cluster. sounds like the security system has been triggered. if no light, check for start signal at the starter solenoid.
