Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I was out doing some shopping and came home and the jeep was running fine. I get home and a really bad storm came through where there was alot of lightning. So after the storm passed i had to run to the store again and when i got in the jeep to start it, it turns and turns but does not start and the security key light comes on, turns off, and comes on again. Also I don't hear the fuel pump coming on and the fuel gauge is now at empty (and i just put fuel in it today when i went to the store). Also the battery meter is reading 9 Volts but I checked the battery and stuck it on charge for over an hour and am still getting the same problems. I tried crawling under the vehicle to listen for the fuel pump as my wife turned the key on and off and nothing at all. What is going on??? I've never had anything go wrong with this vehicle and now it's not doing anything. Help please someone!!!!!!
It sounds like your problem is in the ignition. Maybe you are using a valet key or your ignition switch has failed. Often when a security light comes on it is because your ignition is not getting the electronic signal needed from the key(coded) to start the car. When your ignition does not recognize the key it shuts off all fuel systems but starter still goes.
