Probably a burned fuse. Look in the interior fuse box at the driver feet. There is a 10 amp. fuse mark "METER". When it is burned, the IMMO system won't reaconized the key chip an the vehicle won't run
Is it possible that the burned fuse was cause by a trailer harness wirring ?? Cause my kwoledge of this problem always occur when, or just after, trailering.

This sounds like it could be a faulty crankshaft position sensor.

One thing you can do is go to a part place and either rent (autozone calls it rent-a-tool) or buy any code reader. It might tell you of any stored code readings indicating a possible problem. If it is a faulty crankshaft position sensor, that is very involved fix. See my other post on locating and replacing the crankshaft position sensor.

Second time brought 2008 jeep grand cherokee to dealer for new ignition switch.car not starting,installed new starter and alternator batterie. is the problem the ignition switch or not...


If it's an auto transmission, there will be a gear position switch that will enable the starter relay. If this switch is not aligned with 'N' or "P" gear position, it will not enable the relay and no power will be connected to the starter. When you turn the key to start, have someone hold.or listen to the starter relay operating. If nothing happens, check/replace relay and try again. If it still fails, try shifting to N and try again. Have a look your instrument panel make sure that the immobilizer is not active when your switch on the ignition.

Lots of power, dash lights up but no ignition power to starter, relay changed, neutral start switch changed, fuses good.


Well, looking at the schematic, there is the IGN A (Fuse 6) in the under-hood fuse block feeding power to both the ignition switch and to the NO contact of the starter relay. Turning the ignition switch to the START position sends this voltage thru the CRANK (Fuse 8) in the instrument panel fuse block and thru the PARK/NEUTRAL position switch, thru the starter relay coil to ground. This should activate the Starter relay and pass voltage to the starter solenoid to ground, activating it. One the starter solenoid activates, batter power is sent to the starter motor, activating it. If, as you say, the fuses are good, the starter relay was replaced and is good, and the Park/Neutral position switch was replaced and is good, then then only items left are the ignition switch itself, the starter solenoid/motor, or the wiring of the circuit.

Turns over but won't start


I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

Van will not crank over, seems to have no power to the starter


Battery? If OK, turn the ignition switch to START and listen for a click indicating the starter relay is closing. If it clicks, the starter may have failed. If no click, check 10A CRANK fuse 8 in the instrument panel fuse block. If OK, check 40A IGN-A fuse in the underhood fuse/relay center. If OK, check for 12V at the top of the IGN-A fuse. If OK, the ignition switch, the park/neutral position switch (shift quadrant), or the starter itself are the only other possibilities

I would check to see if you are getting power to the small wire on the starter solenoid when you turn the key to the starting position. If so, you may have a bad starter or solenoid.

Ignition troubles


unplug connector at ignition switch, bridge terminal 30 [battery power] on connector and terminal 50 power to starter solenoid. engine should turn over. plastic ignition switch can wear and not make contact. at times the lug on ignition barrel that turns the switch breaks off.

I dont think I have ever come across your exact problem.
I checked for TSB's regarding your problem, and there were
none.
I would recommend removing the instrument panel (I.P), and
checking the connections.
I would also check the connections at the ignition switch.
It is possible that one of the ignition wires is not being fed when this problem occurs. This could be caused by
a poor/broken connection, Worn ignition switch, or a remote car starter poorly installed or malfunctioning.

The next time this happens, grab a test light and remove panels for access to the wiring harness to the ignition switch. STAY AWAY FROM THE HARNESS FOR THE CLOCKSPRING AND AIRBAG. With the ignition on (in run) check for power at the dark blue wire, black&white wire, and the black&orange wire.
If one does not have power, then test it at the switch. If still no power, then replace the switch. If the wire has no power, but has power at the switch then repair the wire.
