On my 1999 jeep wrangler [2.4L- 5spd] a circle w/a key in it appears on the upper left of the dash & it will start/run for a few seconds then shut down

i would think that it is an immobilizer symbol letting you know of a problem with the key in use
talk with a service dealer or have the fault codes read to see if there is an immobilizer fault

I have a 2008 Jeep Liberty ignition start problem a place which ignition Switch already. it stalls in the park position within a couple seconds can get running neutral stays running in park afterwards

i can't get the symptoms here.
installed a new Ignition switch why? broke off the key?
then it wont start.
or it wont start and you replaced it for that guess?
you do know that the , SKIM must be happy to run , right>"
all jeeps 1993 to now , all have an ASD relay
this relay drops out after 3 seconds running for 8 reasons (up to)
one reason is the SKIM is failing due to incorrect key switch install>?
using a scan tool answers this in all cases.
the 8 reasons will be shown on the scan tool (for sure)

the runs in park , comment , confuses me.
but others here posted it does that. you trick the ASD to not drop out.
ok, it dont matter, what matters is ASD dropping out in DRIVE.
car wont move. in any gear, now that matters.
can your fast acting right foot keep it running? (Q1)?????
if yes , its a bad running engine problem (weak)
if no and the ASD drops just before the stall its an ASD ISSUE..
so is it?
The dash has a skim light, (on my 08 the lamp has no words or icons, just a simple red light (seen in the operators guide)
this light must not stick on, or you will not be able to drive.
that is its purpose. (IMMOBILIZER it is)
the did the no words trick, to fool thieves ...... by Design.!
Read the operators guide, now. see those lights? what they mean?

How to bypass 02 ignition security on a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee

bypass as in HACK?
you cant,
old cars yes, but not newer.
by design. and law.
this IMMOblizer, (called by jeep. SKIM)


read the FSM book yet on 2002? chapter on SKIM.
chapter 8E, electronic modules.
page 21. read that page first . it answers why.
see secret key code and pin, good luck hacking that.

The skim module blocks the ASD relay (stalls engine)
scanning the PCM with any scan tool it will show, why.
SKIM key wrong, or ?
and with that error the ASD drops and the scan tool tells you that.
so, that means you need to make the SKIM happy.
hacking it , ill not cover, but good luck, its not easy and in most cases impossible.
and if you continue to hack away, the PCM sees that and bricks it self and other modules on the bus as punishments.

good luck hacking.

Chrysler Concorde LXI 4 door - 2004 The car starts up and seconds after, the RPM drops and the car shuts off. The code P0513 comes up on the computer.

That is a code for an invalid skim key. If you have another skim key try it. If it does the same thing then the skim module may be bad.

No oil to push rods on a 1992 chevrolet silverado 5.7 ltr 350 v 8

you may want to drop the pan and see if your pick up tube fell off if you didn't add sealant to it and the screen/basket.
