Anti theft wont start
2002 jeep cherokee wont
start due to anti theft. Took
neg off battery. Does not
have passenger side door
Lock all but the drivers door from the inside using the lock knobs, do not use the electric locks, close and use the key to lock the drivers door, wait at least 30 seconds, then using the key unlock the drivers door, open it up. that should disarm the system, if it doesn't then there is a programming error in the security system or the chip in the key has went bye bye.
My Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001 has the key stuck o. The door and don't let me take it out .
The key does not fit driver side door. THEY put a different door on driver side.. so can't lock Jeep have no way to get door open...
Call a locksmith, he can pick out the code and cut a key for that door, but you will still need the the first kept for the ignition.
If the key has gone bad, how do I get another key? do I need the bad key to get a new one? How much is that gonna run?
A locksmith can do the job, with or without the old key, but will be eaiser if you still have the old key. Hard to say on costs, all depends on time and materials, minimum at least hundred bucks.
I had a key made for mine for $80 at an independent locksmith shop. Got quotes up to $250 from the dealer and some other shops.
i tried everything i could find on the internet and nothing worked.... i called a buddy and he found a way to make it run again. take the wire off the battery, insert key and turn to on position, attach wire to battery, Vroom!!! victory dance, crowd goes wild and junk
This isnt an answer but my son has not been able to drive his jeep for two months becuase of this stupid anti theft thing and he is at college and broke and its along way from home....just wish we could figure this out....
sean was right. i spent two days trying everything and nothing worked. it all started with a dead battery. when i disconnected the battery and turned the ignition to on or run, I'm not sure it says anything, i hooked the battery up and no flashing lights, just silence. and then it started. i have a '96 ram 3500 and this happened to me once before with a dead battery. thank god. i was really getting pissed. thanks sean robin
Mi ignition tends to lock up if im not real careful
Power up alarm mode. When the battery is disconnected and reconnected the security system enters into a power up alarm mode. - Flashes headlight - Flashes Park and taillights - Prevents the engine from starting. __________ In order to prevent the engine from starting the PCM disables the fuel injectors fuel delivery (pulse).
My 2002 jeep grand cherokee overland will start but dies right away I got it stuck and it was pulled out back words the power steering pump pulley broke the belt came off I drove it 3_4 blocks and batter died recharged it up and now it starts and dies
I'm having the same problem. Please let me know if you figure this out. And I will do the same. Thank you and good luck.
Put the key in the back hatch lock and turn it back and forth and then unlock it. It will start!
i tried everthing that you sead too do and stii dose not run
Toni. If that's the case then you may have a corrupted BCM, unfortunately the only place that can verify this is a Jeep dealership. If it is corrupted you may get lucky and it will only need reflashed and not replaced.
I'm having the same problem... I did find that there were wires broken in the wiring harness that runs between the cab door post and the door (I think that was the initial problem seeing how there is a key sensor in the door). After fixing that problem, the "key sentry icon" on the gage cluster is still on and my Jeep still won't start. There are a few other things I need to try, so I'll update when I finish.
