I have that problem at times and mine I just have to push the automatic shifter forward towards park... there is spot where it lets your key free... It might be something else but I have grown used to pushing that shifter all the way with a little extra force...

2005 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE PARASITIC DRAIN


Most drains are caused by door switches or hood switches not turning off lights. It could really be anything. You can either get a meter, pull off your Negative battery cable and put one meter lead on your now off.negative battery cable and negative battery terminal. Set your meter to read dc amps. Start pulling fuses one by one until the meter reads less then .5 amps or 500 mA. If you dont have a meter you can try pulling one every night until you battery no longer drains and narrow it down from there. Anything with power could really be causing this. Alternator and starters are also known for draining batterys while not running.

I turn the key off and the accesories remain hot draining the battery. Took the ignition switch apart and it checks out OK. How do I fix this??


If the accessories remain hot after you "remove" the switch the tuere is a short in the wiring between the positive and the acc. wire

Key locks in the ignition in the ACC position. can't take key out


when you turn key to acc pos that is telling the ignition to go into a accessory mode which runs the radio,wipers etc... but it doesnt allow the ignition circuit to run, and the key in most vehicles will not be able to come out,this is a security protection so that you do not leave accessories on that will drain the battery. The ignition key should only be able to be removed in the OFF position.

1998 Jeep power drains battery over night


Before you disable your alarm try this, disconnect the alternator field plug over night, check battery voltage at the battery before you disconnect the plug then disconnect and leave alone over night, make sure you have at least 12 volts when you disconnect the alt.
Recheck battery voltage in the morning before you reconnect the field plug...

I suspect you may have a leaking diode in your alternator's internal regulator, have seen it many times on your model... Certainly worth a try. Let me know how it turns out....

96 cherokee help!


You know what I have seen a couple of cases with a Jeep cherokee where it was the computer on the pass side firewall where water would leak down and get inside the computer and fry it. may be a local junk yard has one or ebay. but do check for voltage at the small wire on the starter while key is in cranking mode if there is 12 volts at that terminal the ignition switch is good. if not presume an ignition switch, or worst case scenerio its the computer. sometimes trial and error works.

My 96' Jeep Cherokee will not turn over or start


ASE Mechanic here. check all the fuses to start, and check voltage on battery. if there was a battery draw all night the vehicle might have started but the alternator could not charge the battery because its power was too low and causing the ignition to die and then not allowing the vehicle to start. keep me posted!!!!!!!!!!!
