you used voltmeter at the pump?> or just didnt here it run
do say this...please. details, matter....
it told you low fuel is it? is the fuel gauge near "E"
why not state that first.?
dead gauges, be 1st right, smacks of gross power loss.
right>? not clear to me what no gauges means.
but the voltmeter is #1 no?

did you tests fuse that look ok. fuse that look ok can be bad.
no gauges, means all dead, no movement,
well the fuel gauge must work , does it, does it match reality?
cranks but never runs. good input there.

does not run for the jeep 3 seconds.? (ASD rules)
no 12vdc power to pump, when cranking,?
01 grand WJ jeep usa.
is the skim lamp off, the cluster lamp for SKIM security is first.
it must go out after key turn on, or it will never run, ever.
I can help.
WJ jeep
this jeep has a voltage gauge, it must read 12v keyon
if not power is lost, or battery low.
if cranks that tells me the fues blew.
skim cuts spark and fuel, not cranking btw.
2002 cluster
http://jeepdied.com/cluster2002GC.JPG
see that lamp 12, if stuck on car will never start but will crank.
the lamp falses if skim is not working or stays on for ******* key.
we SCAN ALL CARS NOW.
IF You can not scan a modern jeep then it can near impossible to diagnose (a hard cold fact)
IF the ASD fails to work, the PCM tells you every time
all 8 ways for it to fail.
but that takes a scan tool (any modern scanner works,)

WHY MY 2002 JEEP CHEROKEE GRAND WONT START THERE IS A RED CIRCLE AROUND A KEY AND A FLASHING LIGHT WHAT TO DO ?


lost the operators guide I see, like all post here ,same topic.
the dash warning are unique to all cars, all years, and all options.
sounds like you have SKIM, option ,
the operators guide said.
try both keys, car came with 2, lost that too> the spare fob set?
there are 2 lamps SKIS and SKIM.
the key logo means this :
the key transponder chip is bad in THIS key , try the other.
there are no batteries in the key, for this.
the battery fob only runs door lock, logic.

never run any jeep 1999 to now with only 1 key
use 3 keys, so you can make your own spares.
or pay big money later... for sure.

Gauges top working security system not working vehicle will start but only runs 2 seconds


fuses, check all fuses in all fuse boxes. under dash and hood.
the IMMO SKIM , stops fueling of the engine.
the SKIM lamp in the dash shows, that. it sticks on or flashes
you have a transponder key ,right?
and you insert the key as the oper guide states, and the lamp SKIM
self tests. then must go out, if not, the engine will never run more than 2 seconds by Design.
  1. so fix the dead dash first.
  2. then get the SKIM lamp out
  3. then start car.

WHAT DOES THE KEY ICON ON DASH MEAN? MY CAR IS STALLING DOES THIS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE KEY ICON. 2000 JEEP CHEROKEE LIMITED


The symbols should be explained in your owners manual. The symbol could mean that the key you are using is not recognized by the controller as being the correct key. I think this would not allow the vehicle to start at all. Are you using a key that is a copy obtained from anywhere besides a Jeep dealer? The keys have a chip in them that must be programmed by the dealer. If you are using the correct key, I would have the SKIM module checked.

How do I program a new Keyless entry remote to my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo?


Programing Sentry keys: 1. Dealer-Programming additional Sentry Keys (requires ONE original key)
In situations where only one key is available, keys must be programmed by the dealer via the Secured Access Method. The Secured Access method applies to all vehicles. This method requires the use of a DRBIIIt scan tool and will also require that you have access to the unique four-digit PIN code that was assigned to the original SKIM. The PIN code must be used to enter the Secured Access Mode in the SKIM. This PIN number may be obtained from the vehicle owner, from the original vehicle invoice, or from the DaimlerChrysler Customer Center. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information for the proper Secured Access method programming procedures.

2. Self-Programming additional Sentry Keys (requires TWO original keys)

"A" through "G" below is a quick summary of the steps that are required for programming. Following this list, "1" through "6" takes you through the same process in greater detail.
Quick Steps:
A. Purchase a blank key and have it cut
B. Insert original key #1 into ignition and turn to On
C. Wait 5 seconds and turn key to off
D. Immediately insert original key # 2 into ignition and turn to on
E. Wait 10 seconds for SKIS indicator in dash starts to flash
F. Turn ignition off, insert new blank key and turn ignition back on
G. Once SKIS light stops flashing and turns off, your new key is programmed




You can find more details in Sentry Key® Immobilizer System (SKIS)

Hope helped with this information (remember rated this help) Good luck.

My 2003 jeep will turn over but won't stay started it shuts off.


It means that the skim key lost its programming. the only way to fix that is to bring it to a dealer and have them reprogram it for you. unfortunaltly you need to have the keys and vehicle together to program the key. so youll have to either get it towed or use a spare key if you have one.
