Open Question

Ran battery down by accident when I left the key turned to on. I charged battery and it turns over but does not start or even fire. I have checked fuses and relays but can't see any problem Also, When I left the key on it was because I was trying to see if there was a fix to my turn signal, it does not return on right turns. I unscrewed the cowl around the sterring columne, but never removed it. I did lift it up enough to realize that it was not something I could fix This is a 98 Jeep TJ 4cyl,manual trans

Did you check the battery to see if it is up to normal 12.5 volts ?
Has the check engine light been on while the engine is running ?
Do you have headlights and warning lights on the dash when you turn the key to start ?

2003 Aurora, left key on and battery went dead. Recharged battery. Won't start. Turn key to on, security light out and check engine light on. Move key to start and nothing, back to on, one minut


Very interesting site here.. regarding your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/
Another thought.. even though you charged the battery, it's not at all uncommon for a car battery to be very damaged by fully discharging. Especially if not new-ish. One or more cells in it may be bad causing the overall voltage to be under normal. This alone can cause the problem you have. I would try jumping it with another car or test the battery to see if it's got at least 12.7 to 12.9 volts when sitting doing nothing. Good luck.

check the battery for full charge, you should have a minimum of 12.4 volts, once its charged ( I'd have a parts store do a LOAD test on it ) start the vehicle, and check the posts again, it should be giving you a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts,, if not, and you've cleaned all the contacts you have a bad alternator

Find the alarm and disconnect it, or locate the fuse to the alarm and remove it. Then you can charge the battery without all the noise. Once the battery is charged, hook the alarm up and disarm it with the remote.
