This does not sound like an antitheft problem. the SKIS systems in the jeeps will allow the truck to start, but it will turn off again after 5 seconds.

FYI if your jeep key is gray, it has the SKIS system. if it is a black key, it does not.

have you already done diagnostics for a no start? if you are lacking fuel or spark, you need to look elsewhere for the problem if it does not start at all. 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.

Replaced ignition switch in 1999 chevy cavaliar rs, anti-theft light comes on and stays on and won't allow car to start and remain on or run


You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

When jump starting my 99 jeep GC I accidentally hit the negative post with a pos cable (hot) large spark and subsequently it would crank but not start. Sentry key light came on steady as did check engine....


Not sure, but if Sentry Light stay on, by shorting it, the anti-theft system stay on ! Unplug the battery for 30min's reconnect it, and try it again, alot of chance that the anti-theft system will reprogram and will function normally ! You can go to a Local Dealer with your Jeep they will reprogram the system and everything will be fine ! For the Check Engine, need a OBD2 Code Scanner or a Garage/Dealer Scanner to know the Code Stored in the PCM and it will tell if PCM is okay too !
