My 1995 grand cherokee takes a lot to start. turns over fine, but won't fire. checked fuel rail, no pressure. after trying 15 times or so, it will start and run just fine. starts right back up unl


Your Jeep has what's known as the delayed start, no check engine light problem. The Jeep will not start until the check engine light comes on, on the dashboard. Next time it cranks but will not start, look at the dashboard to see if the check engine light is illuminated. If it's not lit up, then your Jeep does have that problem and your Jeep ecu is in need of repair or replacement. There are components inside the ecu that are going bad and will continue to get worse, eventually leading to a permanent no start condition. There are ecu repair services and replacement ecus on ebay.

Look to see if the check engine light come on, on your dashboard, when you turn the ignition on. If that light does not come on, then your ecu computer is in need of repair and your jeep will not start until that light does come on.
Alternately, if that light is on, it could be your crank sensor that's bad on the jeep.

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.

Steering wheel locked and key will not turn 2000 jeep grand cherokee


First thing you need to try is wiggling the steering wheel back and worth while turning the key to try and unlock the steering column. If the key is worn out it may not turn well in the ignition. Another thing is to lubricate the ignition cylinder. If nothing works, it maybe the ignition cylinder tumbler is worn out and needs to be replaced.

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.

How to replace an ignition cylinder lock on a 1999 jeep grand cherokee


Hi,

1) Disconnect and isolate Negative (Ground) battery terminal
2) Wait full 2mins for Airbag system capacitors to discharge (must disable airbag before working near steering column)
3) Insert key and turn to ON position (not start)
4) Release & remove cylinder barrel by pressing the release with a suitable tool (access through hole in the lower shroud)
5) Withdraw cylinder barrel from shroud and disconnect wiring loom from cylinder.

Installation of new barrel is the reverse of above.

NB: YOU MUST ALWAYS DISABLE THE AIRBAG FIRST !

Hope this helps...

Cheers,

I have a 2003 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the ignition switch seems to be getting bad. I can usually get it to start by jiggling the key around and sliding it in and out while turning it. It will start...


it sounds like the ignition cylinder itself is worn and needs replacement. the fact that you cant turn the key. thing that can cause this is if you have to many keys on your key chain .
