Often this will happen when the fuel pump stops but the check engine light won't set from this. best thing to do is get a can of start fluid from auto parts store and open the air filter box and have someone spray into the air line while you are trying to start the engine. If the problem is the fuel pump the motor will start and run until you stop spraying. If this works the service engine light could go out and nothing else be wrong.
good luck

I have a 99 jeep grand cherokee 4.7, the alarm went crazy and the wont start. guages dont budge and horn keeps honking and lights flashing. sentry key light is on in guage cluster any help

Sounds like you need to perform a relearn on the anti theft system, it's not recognizing the key if this happens with the key inserted. Might want to look online for a reset procedure for Jeep. GM has you keeping the key in the ignition in the on position for 10 minutes.

I have a 99 grand caravan it starts perfect but once you turn off wont start till it cools off

Does the engine crank okay when warm and you try to restart? If you give it a little bit of gas when warm will it start? My guess if there are no check engine lights on would be a failing gas pressure regulator.

Pulled out of my driveway it hesitated than took off went about ablock and died tried to start it and wont start

If there was not service engine soon light, good chances are that your fuel filter has reached the end of it's life and is to dirty to allow the fuel to flow through properly. Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter after you inspect all your fuses to ensure your fuel pump is still working.

Thank you for using fixya and a dirty fuel filter or faulty fuel pump will not set the service engine soon light to come on.

99 Grand am Security light comes on every time and car wont start

you cant disable the unit.. it is integral with the engines computer.. turn the key to the on position and leave it for 10 minutes.. the security light should stop flashing in 10 minutes or so , when it does , start the vehicle.. if it is a recurring problem , replace the ignition lock cylinder as it is a common problem with these cars.

I have a 99 jeep grand cherokee i washed the engine and now it wont start

I don't know what year the distributor cap went away. Usually it is water inside the distributor cap that keeps it from starting. If it has one, take it off and dry the inside very well. I had a Ford and a foggy night would sometimes get enough moisture into the cap to keep it from starting.

If you unplug the MAF sensor it should run using the default mapping. I'm having the same problem, but I want to figure out why it won't run with the sensor connected.
