    You mention an "alarm"but this vehicle has no alarm system but a "Remote Starting module" for cold starting in the winter months. We live in Northern Canada so this is pretty common. Would the alarm and remote starter systems be simliar in the way they connect into the system?

    I called the place where we got the Jeep and asked about the Remote starter installation, and found out it wasn't one they put on but he told me to watch the little Red led on the instrument panel between the speed odometer and the fuel gauge and see if it comes on and then goes out once I put the key in or ask the remote starter to try and start it. In both cases the led came on for a few seconds and then went out which means the system is OK with the key or the command to start. I swaped the little starter relay in the fuse box with a different one in case the relay was bad, no change. He suggested checking for voltage on the yellow wire at the starter solenoid, I didn't but I tapped on the starter at the solenoid end of the starter and then I was able to start it again. He suggested that the contacts in the starter are getting bad. He said to try cleaning the contacts or replace the starter. I let you know how I make out once we do one of the two.

The installation of an alarm requires to tap into the fuel pump and starter circuits to disable them, among other things. A loose connection, bad ground or open circuit will prevent the vehicle from starting. I would take the vehicle to the place where the alarm was installed explain the problem and have them check the wiring. Only they know what was done and can go thru it very easy.
Good Luck!! Don't forget to rate this post!!

    Yes, just replace the word alarm for the word module. I am most certain that your problem is related to the wiring, a loose, unplugged or broken wire. and most likely is going to be a ground wire.

    Keep me posted!!

Hi my 2006 Jeep Liberty won't start or turn over all keep hearing is this click sound when I turn the ignition , Plus I just replaced the battery .

Probably a starter. It sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor is not energizing.

You could try this simple trick, but Im about 85% sure you have a bad starter.

Have a buddy help you push the vehicle in neutral for a short distance. When you get it moving at a walking pace, put the transmission in Drive, and let the vehicle come to a stop. You may hear a little clicking, but thats OK, it wont hurt anything. Put the transmission back in Park and try to start the engine again. Sometimes the starter gear gets stuck on the flywheel and it wont engage when you try to start the engine. This trick may move the flywheel a little so the starter can engage.

My rear hatch light indicates that the hatch is open which it is closed tight. Because of this my interior lights stay on and my remote start won't work. How can I fix this? My jeep is the 2009...

The switch on the latch is more then likely stuck. If you can see it spray it with some electrical cleaner and open and shut the hatch a few times.

Sometimes it won`t start.

Does it have a remote starter on it? If so, Have the3 sensors for the remote start checked, a bad one will often cause an erratic no-start problem. We remove them from every car we get in to resell.

Jeep won't start. turn the ignition key and hear clicking sound in engine compartment. I had a remote car starter installed 2 years ago and can start the car that way. when i started the car with the...

clicking when you turn the ignition on most vehicles could be one of two things. First the selenoid for the starter. Second the batterry is worn out or drained. Since your jeep starts with the remote its not your battery. Lucky for you your remote starter is like having a second selenoid. If you are so inclined you might try to fix it yourself. Open the hood. Have someone else turn the key. Follow the sound. I don't have a jeep of that model to look at but It could possibly be comming from a two post terminal that is realatively easy to change. If you are worried about reassembly take pictures before you start. Clean all connections that look corroded.

Tried to start jeep liberty 2005 went and opened

Aside from the part about the remote, I would first check to make sure the battery has a solid 12volts in it and that the terminal connections are clean. After this, then check to see if operation has been restored. Jumping across a battery with bad connection often prevents the vehicle from starting. Also try closing the doors and then locking and unlocking drivers door with the key itself. This should re-set the security system
