Try putting it in neutral and starting it. These Jeeps have a neutral safety switch to prevent starting if the vehicle is in drive. Some times when they fail, it won't start in park but it will start in neutral. Here is a good link to a site for learning about Jeep ignition problems. Click on the other links on the site too.

Where is the 5th coil pack located on a 2005 buick rendezvous?


Hi patricia, If you have a faulty coil and your car's running rough to find the faulty coil just pull a spark plug lead off and start your car, If it runs (ROUGHER) than before then that coil is ok. Turn the car off and replace that spark plug lead back on to the spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and it runs the same as if THAT spark plug lead is on or off, NOW TO MAKE SURE THIS IS THE FAULTY COIL, Put a spark plug into the spark plug lead that's off and earth it to the motor or body (it has to be touching steel), Start the motor and if that's the faulty coil the spark plug won't spark I hope this helps.....

Yes you are heading in right right direction. Check to see if there is spark out of coil. Spark at coil means replace distributor or rotor. No spark at coil replace ignition module or crank sensor good luck. Oh yea crank sensor is cheaper i would try that first if there is spark out of coil.

My 1994 Jeep grand cherokee won't start. It tries to start but doesn't. Tried replacing cap and rotor and still will not start. When I checked the spark it was yellow. What does that mean?


Yellow means weak spark should be blue check the coil tower where the coil wire attaches on the coil for corrosion. Also check the spark plugs for wear.

My car will crank over but will not start.


Try some starting fluid spray,If you get no reaction at all you might have a broken or slipped timming belt.
Look inside the timming belt cover housing if you can.
Look to see if the belt is there or if it moves while someone cranks the engine.
Good luck,pls. vote for this answer

Not getting spark


Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest

I think that the coil packs has installed wrong because you said that the problem started when you replaced them... so i think you should re-install.
