Question about 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I bought a police impound jeep that was a stolen vehicle. Ignition was gone, started up everytime with a screwdriver. Put new ignition in, now it will not start all the time. Sometimes if you turn the key several times on and off, you will hear the fuel pump kick on then it will start. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

The first years of that body shape, like the 93 Grand Cherokee, had ecu computer problems. Next time it won't start, check to see if the check engine light does lights up on the dash, when you turn the ignition on, before cranking. If it does not, the fuel pump will not kick on, until that check engine light does come on. It's referred to as the delayed check engine light problem, on early to mid 90's Jeeps. If you find out that is indeed the problem, you can have the ecu computer repaired.

I am an officer at a police dept. doing an investigation on a stolen 2005 jeep liberty. the steering column was taken appart but no wires were cut. can this vehicle run without its key?


Any vehicle can be run without a key. Most times it will be obvious that tampering has taken place. If you can put a screwdriver into the key slot and are able to turn the lock, the lock was defeated. In fact, unless the lock was defeated, the vehicle's steering lock would preclude being able to actually drive the vehicle. If everything is intact, it sounds like the owner was looking to cash in on insurance.

1997 Chrysler Sebring starts everytime but shuts off after five seconds everytime. Getting fuel and spark. What could be causing the shutdown?


It sounds like you computer system has gone into "Theft Protect Mode". There is most likely a problem with your security system and the computer "thinks" that the vehicle is being stolen. This can be due to the wrong key being used, or it could be a bad ignition switch or theft module. I would recommend having it diagnosed professionally. It would be very difficult to diagnose the problem without the required computer diagnostic equipment. If any of the parts of the security system are defective, the computer will have to be reprogrammed when they are replaced.

I would, however try a different key in the ignition if you have more than one - before having it towed to a repair facility. If another key works, you will only need to get a replacement key and have it programmed for your car.

Changing out ignition switch


    Remove the Ignition Switch
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable with a socket or box wrench. Pull the airbag fuse from the driver's side fuse panel using the fuse removal tool found on the panel. Disable the theft-lock system on the radio.

  2. Remove the instrument cluster by removing the bezel screws with a screwdriver and prying the bezel off with a prying tool or flathead screwdriver.

  3. Remove the two screws holding the ignition switch in place with a screwdriver.

  4. Push the ignition switch about one inch toward the front of the vehicle so that it will clear the mounting bracket. Lift the switch up and out from behind the instrument panel.

  5. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the ignition switch. Put the key in the ignition and turn it the Run position.

  6. Press the spring-loaded pin on the side of the ignition switch with a small screwdriver. Pull the lock cylinder out by the key.

  7. Install the New Ignition Switch
  8. Place the ignition key in the new ignition cylinder and push the cylinder into place in the ignition housing. Turn the key to the off position and remove it.

  9. Connect the electrical wires to the back of the ignition switch.

  10. Put the switch assembly in position in the cluster and install and tighten the two screws with a screwdriver.

  11. Install the instrument cluster bezel and attach the two screws with a screwdriver.

  12. Replace the airbag fuse in the driver's side fuse panel. Connect the negative battery cable with a wrench. Enter the code for the Theft-lock system into the radio.

I have an o3 ford escape with an aftermarket autopage remote start system.when i try to use the remote start it flashes the parking lights and all the accesories fire up but will not ingauge the starter....


the issue is the securilock system I installed one in my 03. You need a spare coded key (one that starts the vehicle) and a Bulldog 791 kit. ths will store the spare key and tell the vehicle it is not being stolen. Its the only way unless you want to leave your key in the ignition. BTW, the Theft light is on when you engage the remote started w/o the key in the ignition, Been there.

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The vehicle


sounds like the key is either worn down to where the ridges in the key wont push the tumblers inside the key lock cylinder into their proper place to move the cylinder into the starting position. Or your steering colum is locked and the wheel is moving freely as if it were not. So your solution would be to either have an expert look at it (estimated cost: 200$ low/400$high) or you can attempt to fix it yourself.
should you choose the "I'll fix it myself" method....try getting a new key made at a hardware store since keys wearout over time (ie:10years of turning that old key), this may solve the problem right away if the ridges are just worn on the key. Or the hard way, you need to get a phillips screwdriver and some jewelers tools and an 8mm or 10mm wrench/rachet+socket to disconnect the battery, then underneath the steering colum just under the ignition is a hole in the colum shroud/cover, from there you can disconnect the ignition key lock cylinder (the thing you put your key into). once you've removed the cylinder from the steering colum you should test your key again to see if you can turn the cylinder outside of the colum if you cannot then buy a new ignition key lock cylinder for about 15$-30$...problems solved.

98 Jeep Wrangler with Alarm Problem - Installed by Marietta Jeep


Your vehicle has 2 ignition wires that you can put back to factory, and start the vehicle.
The wires you are looking to put back together are (blue) and (black/orange) - and found under the D/S dash. (ignition harness) They will be larger in Diameter than the others.
They were cut to install the security system. They go into the "brain" and out the other side. A relay inside the BRAIN is most likely failing.
If you no longer want the alarm installed, simply match up all of the factory colors. Use crimp-on ****-connectors for secure connection.
Let me know if you need more help.
