Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

2000 Jeep Cherokee sport

When I turn the key, it is like the battery is dead, nothing happens. I have battery power because the lights and stereo work. After I turn the key 5 or 6 times it will start right up. A few times my battery gauge has gone all the way to + and the check gage light will come on, if I pull over, turn off the ignition, and then start it back up it will go back to normal? any suggestions? My 1999 Jeep cherokee just dies on the highway. When i try to get it started again it acts like its hard for the engine to turn over, but after you let it sit for a while it will start back up. It will drive for 30 minutes and do it all over again. It sounds like a sensor but im not sure....anyone with a suggestion?

I removed the stereo from my 1993 geo prizm and now I turn the key and nothing happens?


Removing the stereo should have no effect on starting the car. Was the dome light on/door open while you were doing this? Possible dead battery. Try giving the vehicle a boost and see what happens

I have a 2002 KIA Spectra that will not start. I turn the key and nothing happens. No lights, dash lights, nothing!!! I had the battery checked and charged at AutoZone and put it back in. Still nothing....


you always have to reset when you take the battery out or it goes stone dead. loosing power sounds like a battery going dead due to no charging. charge it up and drive it bck to auto zone for an alternator check.

Why does nothing happens when key is turned to start?


You have a faulty ignition switch relay. It's responsible for using a low voltage signal (key in start position) to send full battery power to your starting circuit.

Car won't start, seems to have power, all lights working. when I turn the key nothing happens. this only happens sometimes


Could be a bad alternator.. It may not be holding charge. Or your starter could have failed.

Though I've had the same problem and it was a dead battery in my vehicle. Had enough power, but to keep the car on..

NO CRANK. NO STEREO. NO CLOCK.


I think that your battery is dead. Try jump starting the car. Be careful that you hook the jumper cables correctly, red to positive[the + on the battery] black to negative[the- on the battery].

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.
