Playstation 3 works fine useing the av hook up but won;t work with hdmi cable hook up.

First, make sure your TV is on the appropriate input for the plugged in HDMI cable. Once this is completed, turn your ps3 on. If the screen comes on and is black, turn the ps3 to standby (red light is on) and hold the front power button until the console beeps a second time. This will usually force the ps3 to recognize the hdmi input and will bring up the menu to configure the AV settings.

I have a 1994 jeep grand cherokee manufactured in October 1993. The problem I'm having is that the jeep wont start. At first we had no gas, no spark. We checked crankshaft's ok, but...

Try this. Lock and unlock the tail gate with the key and see if it will start. The battery must be hooked uo when this procedure is followed. Whenever the battery is disconnected, the security circuit shuts the ignition down.
When you hook up any battery, make certain that you connect the positive battery cable first and negatvie (ground) second.

When the car is started and left to idle, the rpms goes up and down, vroom vroom vroom

This sounds like a vacuum leak, inspect for broken or loose hoses.

Ok when i turn my car on the rpm is high right at start, after about 5 min it will go to the normal rpm rate. after the car reaches normal temperature it starts vroom, vroom, vroom then it will stop...

I think the throttle positioning sensor is going bad.
It's called a "TPS" you might need to take it to a repair shop because they are adjusted with a voltmeter.
The specifications vary from engine to engine very hard to adjust.

Starts then i shut it off and then it wont re start like there is no juice but i dont here any clicking or anything everything else turns on but no vroom vroom no clicking just no power to starter is...

OK, if it starts and after you shut it off, it won't restart, then the likely culprit is the connection at the battery is dirty.

The starter needs a lot of power off of the battery to turn over the engine. And, if the connections are dirty, sometimes it will work, and other times it will not.

Try to remove the connections and wire brush them until they look shiny and new. Reconnect, and I think that you'll be pleasantly surprised.

The connection from the battery to the starter is with a thick wire.

The solenoid on the starter is operated by the key switch.

Good luck on this repair.
