Second time brought 2008 jeep grand cherokee to dealer for new ignition not starting,installed new starter and alternator batterie. is the problem the ignition switch or not...

If it's an auto transmission, there will be a gear position switch that will enable the starter relay. If this switch is not aligned with 'N' or "P" gear position, it will not enable the relay and no power will be connected to the starter. When you turn the key to start, have someone hold.or listen to the starter relay operating. If nothing happens, check/replace relay and try again. If it still fails, try shifting to N and try again. Have a look your instrument panel make sure that the immobilizer is not active when your switch on the ignition.

5th gear out on 91 Toyota Corolla. Expensive to fix? Worst case scenario?

5th gear out is a pretty general description, Is it grinding when trying to shift into 5th or when you go to 5th it pops out, or you shift into 5th and nothing happens? It could be a simple syncro repair to replacing just the 5th gear to rebuilding the whole transmission, either way, you may want to consider just buying a JY trans, it would probably be cheaper.

My car wont start. turn the key and nothing happens, all lights work is it the battery

It is a 2009 Model, it can't be a battery problem. Can you turn on head lights and horn at the same time? if you can't then it may be. Since nothing happens, it means there is a problem with the neutral safety switch at your gear shift. Have it check out. ( $40 buck for the part plus labor)

I have an 06 Elantra. Key turns but nothing

dear friend-you have two things that can be at fault at this stage,first of it can be the electrical unit behind the ignition that is intermittend,or as you say you move the gearshift around meaning that you have a auto,so you have a micro switch(neutral switch) that can be faulty.check these out and it should solve you problem.

1999 Hyundai Tiburon gear won't move into gear from park but for some weird reason it will move when I turn the lights on it will but when they are off it will not move help pleases. and this a A/T

possible ignition issue with your key, or ignition console.
a buddy of mine had the same issue, with a corolla, and when you played with the key like toggling back and forth in the ignition without starting, it would shift into gear try that see what happens.

1996 Corolla Auto Transmission problem

Hi. 2005 Corolla CE. It's normal. They tend to do this when upshifting form 1st to 2nd gear. No timing chain readjustment needed.

96 Corolla. Overdrive not working properly, if not engaging after 45mph constantly. If driving on the city, is normal, but not after 45mph, when the car is trying to engage overdrive in order to save gas and preserve the trans gears. If not able to get help at the dealership, find another one and explain them the situation.
