    It sounds like a security system problem. Does the security light even come on when you just turn the key to the run position? What does the light do?

Check fuel pressure after it's been sitting for a while. It should be within 5-psi of spec. If not, you have a bad check valve in the fuel pump.

2000 jeep Cherokee sometimes runs fine shut it off wont start but turns over fine later it will start


Ok. You didn't say what size engine was in the Jeep, but based on your problem, I'd bet its the 2.5L 4 cylinder. They had a classic issue with intermittent failure of the crankshaft sensor. This will cause the vehicle to just shut down without any other indications, Sometimes it will restart immediately, sometimes it can take minutes to hours to restart. The sensor is easy to replace and not very expensive. It is located on the drivers side of the transmission bell housing.

My 1993 nissan sentra 1.6 wont run and check engine light wont turn on,bulb is ok


Could be any of several things. If the crank sensor is marginal and not sending pulses, the fuel pump is shut off. This is for safety. The pump is energized for a few seconds as key is turned in preparation for starting then engine must rotate normally to keep the pump on. If it stops, in a few seconds the fuel is cut off.
