2009 jeep commandeer wont start, when I turn the key there is no sound, lights wont turn on and is that wasn't enough the key gets stuck in the ignition. any ideas?


it wont crank, no A/t car starts unless cranked first. (a key point)

fix head lights first. this is a feature in all cars.

that is SIMPLE and HOT all the time

they must work at all times and is the top way to diagnose

electric problems



you have a dead battery,.

only why remains.

i bet it cranks jumper cable started, call AAA or buy some cables.

or swap in a charged battery , or heck charge yours, buy a charger.

check fuses.

check battery lugs for green death?

check battery voltage. at 12.6vdc, if not charge the battery

if the battery continues to disgharge.

that is called phantom drains, or bad battery .

or the alternators is bad.(system)

once started the battery volts must be 13.3.to 15v, if not the charge system is bad ,(fuses, belts slipping and lots more possibles)

Car wont start till i turn key on for 10 minutes


Sounds like a security passcode issue. There is a chip inside the ignition and if your key does not have a chip in it, this is probably the problem. You can bypass the security lock feature but its a pain in the kisser. Unfortunately, that maybe the only solution to bypass the system or you can do nothing except before letting the key go when you start the car make sure it is started.

See if you can hear your fuel pump go on when you first turn your key if not replace it. It should have a humming noise when you first turn your key.

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

your injector or fuel pump may be going out, next time when you check the issue, check your distubutor again and making sure you getting sparks, if you do have sparks than it has to be your fuel problems.

Shifter problems


the key wont come out unless you have it in park, and then you need to push the key in so that it will turn. there are lots of funny little features with that, such as it wont start unless its in park.
