Lock and unlock the tailgate with the key to shut off alarm. The security system will reset and then you can start the car.

Starting problems

Hi there:
Are you check battery charge? Your Jeep crank but no start, right? Ot, jiust turn the key start feww seconds and then died!

Could be some problem with starter and battery charge or theft system. Check that Theft Security System closely, it may not be allowing power from the ignition switch to the starter/solenoid. If power is there when cranking, you may want to replace the battery cables completely instead of the ends that you already did.

The first thing we need to do is Check for Fault Codes. Cycle the key from off to on three times ending with it on and watch the check engine light. After the last time you turn the key on it will come on and go out. After a pause it will come back and start flashing. It will flash up to 9 times and then pause. Count the flashes between the pauses - this is a code digit. Write down all the digits in order and post them here.

Dont work yet? Wiil need to check this specific section from the Grand Cherokee Repair Manual, there is the wiring for your security system. You can try to pull the fuse to disable the alarm system, but it may not work. Some are wired when they do not have power or then are not powered up it will disable the starting of the vehicle.



Hope this helps. Keep us updated.

94 Jeep wont start running after 3 seconds.

It could be the security system or maybe a crank sensor.

94 Jeep Grand Cherokee heater coil has been replaced wont start

If you have a security system, close all the doors and then lock the drivers door with the key, then unlock it. That should re-set the system. I've had the computer completely disconnected from mine several times (used it to check another vehicle) and I don't have started and ran fine...only difference between the two is the security so I'd try that.

My Grand cherokee is not starting

If anyone has this problem also where you start your Jeep and it dies in about 2 seconds and the key symbol lights up on your dash I can help. I had this problem yesterday after jumping the battery, I had the correct key but it wouldn't read it. I had a locksmith come out and if you take off the steering column plastic there's a small black module in the column behind the key switch. Unplug that module for 5 minutes and it will reset. My Jeep started up right after. You MUST have the correct key though, mine is gray not sure about other years.

Changed battery and no remote control

you may need to call a dealership and ask them about it they are most familiar with their systems and can tell you how to shut it off and possibly tell you how to keep it disarmd

Jeep alarm will not turn off

The ignition security on/off is located at the trunk lock. unlock and lock rear gate and the alarm will turn off. My jeep sat in my drive for a month before a jeep tech told me this. It still triggers the security sometimes when I unlock the passenger door with the key and I go straight to the rear gate lock and it shuts off instantly.
