Question about 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

All lights and gauges work, but when you turn key nothing happens

This has happened on occasion. In the past after jiggling the gear shift in park it will eventually hit a position where it turns over with no problem. This time no amount of jiggling has helped. You have lights and power but when the key is turned nothing.

My ford laser wont start


What often happens is the switch on the brake pedal gets knocked around by the driver's feet. This switch is suppose to be a safety switch to insure that your foot is on the brake pedal before it lets the starter work. On some models another safety switch is on the gear shift to insure that the vehicle is in Park or Neutral. If your vehicle is a stick-shift they sometimes put the switch on the clutch lever to make sure you do not try to start the car in gear.

Twice my 21 yr old has told me he cannot start the 2002 Buick Regal. The first time I think the gear shift had not fully engaged in Park. This last time he said the steering wheel locked up, so he...


could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted

Car lock in park


Below is the procedure for unlocking your your gear shifter. your vehicle is equiped with a brake shift interlock which is and I'm sure you know this but if the brake is not pressed in it will not shift. I would check to see if you have a blown fuse for that circuit and also I am pretty sure if you brake lights are not working the same thing will happen. i hope this helps you and good luck.

if an ignition switch fails, sometimes you can jiggle the key and it will start right up. its very hard to tell. but if you can start it by bypassing the ignition switch, then its the switch itself. go to this site for more detailed info--- aa1car.com/library/1999/cm119948.htm---this page should help. click on top link.

My gear shift i stuck in park


check your brake light if they are working, if they do not work then your brake light switch is bad.
if the brake light is working, the shift inter-lock solenoid may be bad.
there is a small slot next to the gear shifter, put a key in there and push down while you shift out of park.

Gas gauge jumps past full mark by 1/2 inch when key is turned on, then drops back and jiggles while in park, when you put it in drive the jiggling stops.


fuel level sensor it will eventually set a check eng light. the unit is on top of the fuel pump assembly it is a little black sensor that can be changed by itself or if u wish a new pump assembly will fix it also.
