98 cherokee turns over but won't start no power to wiring at fuel pump an on the dash ther is a orange key with a line throw it what does it mean

This indicator light is related to the vehicle security system, which checks that the key you are using is authentic. If it is flashing, you have a key with no chip in it, a bad ring antenna, or other fault in the security system.
    • 1Turn the ignition switch off.
    • 2Insert the key into the driver's side door.
    • 3Turn the key clockwise to lock it.
    • 4Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock it. The alarm system recognizes an authorized key was used and the system resets.
      As a side note if that doesnt work try it in the rear hatch. good luck hope this helped.

I have no power cant turn xbox on theres a orange light on power pack?

This means that there is a problem with your power supply, because it cannot put out enough power to be used by you Xbox 360. My suggestion it to buy a new power supply to replace the one you have now before anything might happen to your system.

No power in console, but light is on ,on the power pack

This is normal. The light will always be on if the power pack is plugged into the wall. There should be no lights lit on the Xbox if the power is turned off, but the power pack will still have an orange light.
