2005 jeep crank no start

Your Jeep should have a "chipped" ignition key. If it does, then the programming message is telling you to insert a NEW key which has not been programmed. Somehow your jeep confused itself into thinking this way. This sometimes happens when physically inserting the key too quickly into the ignition switch after using the remote start function/ feature. If you are in a bind, you can try disconnecting your car battery and leave it unplugged for 10+ minutes. Then reconnect it and try to start your vehicle. If that does not work then maybe it is possible to obtain another NEW "SENTRY KEY" and have your your jeep program it to possibly quit the no start program loop. If these options do not work for you, then unfortunately the vehicles computer module will have to be "flashed" and troubleshooted at the dealer.

Have a 2008 jeep grand cherokee laredo put key in ignition and dash board says damaged key and another service security key jeep wont start

This sounds like a bad chip in the key, try a spare key, if it starts with spare key then key is bad, if it doesnt start then you will need reprograming

Head lights and dashboard lights come on and off

This is usually a sign of the battery wires not connected completely or the ground has become frayed and needs to be replaced.

Dash lights on 2004 jeep grand cherokee

it is having trouble reading your key chip. You may need to get a new key thru someone other than dealer. Dealer is WAY too expensive. Check around locally and save some $$.
