What can it be? my jeep won't start, it does not crank and the battery is good.


wow one of the first posts ever to say, it wont crank....
very clear that. Its silent.
but is it automatic transmission, ill guess yes.
  1. fuses good.??
  2. battery terminals not green with rust.?
  3. does it crank in Neutral, as the operators manual states??
  4. you do know that new batteries, can be DISCHARGED right?
  5. so does jumper cable jump starts to a running donor car crank now? AAA Tow style? (oops new battery was discharged , charge it now)
  6. no, then hot wire the starter solenoid ,with keys in pocket.
  7. cranks now? , then starter is good. (i just saved you cash)
  8. no it doesn't crank now, the starter is bad, or engine is seized. (hand turn engine to discover that fact)
  9. cranks hot wired? yes,. that means the key line is dead.
  10. the Key line can be dead for 3+ reasons, aftermarket alarms added or remote start bs added, or transmission park/neutral switch is bad or ignition switch bad.
  11. to find #10 it takes a $10 volt meter, are you game?

Why wont my jeep start some times put lots of new parts in and its been at a jeep dealer for 2 weeks and they cant figure it out its like the Batt has been unhooked it will start fine then the next ti


you meant it wont crank? , right?, no A/T car starts, until cranked. so......what is it.????????
if you learn the art if testing, you win this battle.
here they are.
NO CRANK 101: (rule 1, it must be failing to find a cause)
it not failing, nobody can fix working cars, but they will try, and charge you for doing nothing at all. your choice.
its failing....
  1. does it crank with jumper cables to running car?
  2. are all 4 ends if the battery cables clean and tight?
  3. when you hot wire the starter solenoid, keys in pocket , does it crank now?, if yes, good, if not the starter systems are failing.
  4. if yes, it cranks now, then the KEY line is dead.
ill stop here,,,,, if key line is dead, wiggle the shifter, or try neutral cranking.. at shfiter. (bingo that>?)
battery at 12.6vdc charged and rested before starting the tests.
use a cheap voltmeter.

put what parts in?, do tell , the battery would be first. no?
try a loaner battery?

if the car always cranks then say so, that is called
cranks but does not start. period.
answer the simple questions and we can take you to the cause.
my voltmeter has never lied to me yet, in 50+ years.


lets say it cranks all the time.
cranks but does not start

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee - Security Key Flashing/ Wont Crank after dead battery


A flashing key symbol normally means an invalid key. Do you have an other key to try? That all the gauges stay at 0 seems to point to a PCI data bus problem. Was the jeep parked outside or at least standing in the rain? Many times water ingress in connector C200 up in the passengers footwell area is the problem. The connector must be removed, cleaned/dried and reconnected. Ofcourse the source of the water ingress must be found, which many times comes from the windshield.

My car won't start there is a circle with a line running through it and a picture of a key in the middle of the circle what does it mean


Chip in Key is wrong. Go see a Jeep dealer with your title and get a new chip-key or have yours reprogrammed.

Dash lights on 2004 jeep grand cherokee


it is having trouble reading your key chip. You may need to get a new key thru someone other than dealer. Dealer is WAY too expensive. Check around locally and save some $$.
