    Same problem. 2001 GC. Happens randomly. Sometimes it just takes cleaning the terminals, but sometimes not. It seems there's a short somewhere in the system. Keep blowing taillights.

    When I turn the key, nothing happens. All dash lights come on. Radio, locks, etc all work. 10 minutes later. It will start fine. This happens when its cold, warm or hot. Mechanic had it for two days and couldn't find anything. Took it to the dealer and they replaced a relay in the passenger door that they said was draining the battery ($750). The next day, same problem. Please HELP

2000 gmc jimmy starts in AM fine won't start after sitting in sun all day

Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

2008 Jeep Liberty does not crank. Dash lights come on. Door locks do not respond to RKE. Tried second key, but will not start.

Automatic transmission ? Try moving the gear selector to neutral . park neutral safety switch ,maybe. If placing gear selector in neutral doesn't do anything , looking at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the starting system . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ? Free diagrams here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size . Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link .Do you know what a relay starter is , what a totally integrated power module is ? The starter control is controlled by a control module (computer )

I Have a 94 cherokee country with a 56028297 ecu,it has no power at the grey wire at the ecu,it does flash sometimes and I can hear the relay work sometimes. I can bypass the fuel pump relay circuit and...

If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.

My 1999 bmw 323i just stopped working. It ran fine, but after shutting it down, I turn the key to start the car and I get nothing; no lights on the dash, as if the battery was disconnected. I checked...

try this won't hurt and is simple Disconnect your battery....both the positive and negative cables. Let it sit for about 15-20 minutes and then short the cables together with a piece of metal like a combination wrench, NOT the battery terminals, just the pos and neg cables. After you have shorted the cables you can reconnect the battery and the cluster may now come back to life and vehicle start. You are basically rebooting the car's computer doing this.
hope this helps.

No start condition new battery , good starter, turn key to start position light come on dash, go forward to start light go out and you hear click under dash area like relay, no power getting to starter....

no starter relay is always at the fuse relay box at the engine compartment. The relay that you hear is the relay for the accessories to turn off the power during starting position.

Check that the battery cable ends (where the wire goes into the clamp) are clean with no corrosion, and that the other end of those cables are securely connected - especially where the ground cable connects. Also check any ground strap that connects the engine with the frame or body.
