Why wont my Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited start?

Sounds like you have a bad alternator. Not recirculating juice back to the battery.

99 kia sephia wont start

This sounds like an ignition switch issue. It is located on the opposite side of the ignition lock cylinder (the part you put the key into) and can be purchased for about $20-30. If you are handy with a volt/ohm meter, I can give you directions on how to test the 'start' wire to see if it is getting power before you buy a replacement switch.

The door ajar beeping comes on anytime a door is open, whether or not a key is in the ignition.

The light and the beeping are two differant things. Headlight switch on? Or the switch were the key gos may think the key is still in the switch.

Headlights keep coming on after lights are turned off and car is off

Most of the time a car's computer is on at all times. Try disconnecting the positive cable to your battery with the key out of the ignition.Depress the brake pedal a couple of times;this should drain the power in the computer.Reconnect the positive cable and the car's computer should be rebooted.Good luck!

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

Wont start and makes no noise when turning the key but the headlights come on

Sounds like tired battery. Lights and accessories draw a fraction of what starter & ignition requires. To verify try jump starting. Once started have charging system tested and battery "load tested". Any good parts store does this FREE

My headlights on my 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP wont ever turn off. Even when i turn the switch to the "OFF" position. They are only off when the key is not in the ignition. What is wrong?

This is the way they were made, and unfortunately, I know a few times I wanted to turn mine off too. The only other way to keep them off when running the engine at least, Is before starting, to engage the parking brake. Then you can start the car and turn the lights off. Sometimes it's at least useful when you want to park at night with the car running, but not have your lights lighting up the block!

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee. my only problem is that theres a continuous beep that will not go starts out like the "ding ding ding" you hear when the key is in the ignition and the drivers...

Find out where the noise is coming from. From your description, it sounds like the key warning buzzer is being activated when it should not be. A quick fix for this is to disconnect the buzzer. (the switch that turns it on is in the steering column and a real pain to get to) After you disconnect it, Make sure everything you need is still working.. I don't think it's connected to anything else important.
