It sounds like your key is not programmed to the vehicle. This must be done at a dealer or similarly equipped repair shop.

Another possibility is an electronic problem within the SKIM module or in the wiring between the SKIM and PCM.

The power IS being drained. That power is not going to be restored unless the vehicle runs for a period of time or you connect a battery charger.

Hope this helps!

Security light stays onJeep Compass


IMMO cuts fuel. that is its job, fix that secuity system.
the FSM covers this.
if you tried both the key fobs , that came with car?
do so... now....!

if not why not?
are you using only a single key , to test this? do so.
no other keys near ignition switch.
do have this, the oper guide?
page 14?

http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/jeep-compass-owners-manuals/

next is to read the IMMO sections (immoblizer) in FSM
or alldata.com to find true cause of IMMO tripped.

quote page 14, (it's clear , no?)
SENTRY KEY
The Sentry Key Immobilizer System prevents unauthorized
operation of the vehicle by disabling the engine.
The system will shut the engine off after 2 seconds of
running if an invalid key is used to start the vehicle. This
system utilizes ignition keys which have an electronic
chip (transponder) embedded into them. Only keys that
have been programmed to the vehicle can be used to start
and operate the vehicle.
The Sentry Key Immobilizer System does not need to be
armed or activated. Operation of the system is automatic
regardless of whether or not the vehicle is locked or
unlocked. During normal operation, the Theft Alarm/
Immobilizer Light will come on for three (3) seconds
immediately after the ignition switch is turned on for a
bulb check. Afterwards, if the bulb remains on, this
indicates a problem with the electronics.

If the bulb begins to flash after the bulb check, this
indicates that an invalid key has been used to start the
vehicle.
Both of these conditions will result in the engine
being shut off after two (2) seconds of running.
Keep in mind that a key which has not been programmed
is also considered an invalid key even if it is cut to fit the
ignition lock cylinder for that vehicle.
If the Theft Alarm/Immobilizer Light comes on during
normal vehicle operation (vehicle has been running for
longer than 10 seconds), a fault has been detected in the
electronics and the vehicle should be serviced as soon as
possible.

Can you help me, anti-yhief cut power to engine and it won-t start back up


Do you have the year make and model.? If it is a anti theift with a key immobilizer the vehicle will just start and idle for a few seconds then shut off and the anti theft light will remain on or be blinking. Then we know you are dealing with the anti theft. do you have another key to crank the engine if you do use a spare key and hold the key next to the immobilizer and crank the engine see if that will give if it doesnt try this method. roll the window down with window down disconnect the negative battery cable wait 5 minutes reconnect put the key in the ignition but dont crank it just yet turn it in the on spot not the crank for 2 minutes then crank it and see if that start the vehicle . If this doesnt work then you will need to call a mobile locksmith who reprograms the immobilizer

If you are dealing with the anti theft the anti theft will flash as you are trying to start the vehicle if this is the case then it is the anti theft if not then you are not dealing with a ant theft issue. You can do a 30 minute relearn procedure without a scan tool. here is how Turn ignition on without the engine reunning.attempt to start the vehicle then release the key to ON.(vehicle doest start) Observe the security light.afeter 10 minutes the security light will turn off.Turn off the ignition and wait 5 seconds.do this 3 times for 30 minutes. start the engine with the engine started the vehicle will learn the passlock key.
