You have an electrical drain on the battery somewhere.

If I were diagnosing this issue at my shop, I'd use my multimeter to identify the baseline draw on the battery then start removing and replacing fuses one at a time and detailing the decrease in draw to identify what circuit is the source of the abnormal draw. That's the easy tracking down what componet on the circuit is the culprit - that could take some time.

You could always install a battery quick disconnect into the vehicle.

2003 jeep cherokee larado cranks but no start. battery is brand new. how do you electrically check the fuel pump relay?

Before you jump relays, have you checked for engine codes relating to the issue your having with this vehicle? If so, what are the codes? You can swap a relay from another circuit in the PDC box. Most relay's are ISO and as long as the connectors are the same pattern, you can use it to verify a defective relay from a different circuit.

I have a 2004 jeep grand cherokee. on saturday night i jumped it off, and while connecting the jumper cables there was a large spark, now the vehicle idles roughly and sometimes cuts of,f can you help

Sounds like you shorted the diode in the alternator. Drive to nearest parts store and let them test it if possible, recommend fully charging the battery before atempting this and dont try to do it at night because the headlights will kill the battery quickly. Another option is to remove the alternator and carry it to the parts store and have it tested. I'm assuming the vehicle is already out of warrantee but if not have it towed to the dealership to be checked out. I'm fairly sure its an alternator problem.

I can't start my 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee with either key fob. Once I got a "Service Security Key" message. Another time I got the "Key not programmed - Damaged key" message. What...

Hi Hal,

Did you ever get this resolved? Looks like you didn't get any feedback here! I'm having the same issue sporadically. I turn the key and nothing. Usually if I keep trying it will eventually start cranking and start. Usually within 10 - 15 tries. happened last night. After it started, I got the "Service Security Key" message. I looked in the manual and it does say what that means. Don't know if it is programming (probably not because the fob works 97% of teh time) or maybe just a dying battery. If you can share anything you might have founf out I'd appreciate it! thanks!
