Have Jeep Questions? Ask a Jeep Repair Expert for Answers
Hello. The next thing I would try is using the key in the passenger door and the liftgate. There are disarm switches on those lock cylinders also. Let me know if that helps.
OK, I was hoping that would help. You might have to get your vehicle towed to a shop. There might be a problem with the VTSS module. Another thing to try would be a jump-start...maybe the battery is weak.
I will opt out so another expert can help you.
You are not a pain. I want to help you. Of course, there are some linitations to what we can do over the internet. Do this please, if you can. Turn the key on and tell me what reading the 'volts' gauge shows.
then turn the key off and open the hood. Look for the black fuse box near the battery. Tke the lid off and see if you can locate and remove the starter relay (square, black plastic). It should be labeled.
Use a piece of wire, or a paper clip---connect 30 and 87 in the fuse box (where the starter relay was). The engine should crank over, but it will not start, since the key is out.
===Make sure the key is in your pocket====
===make sure you connect the correct terminals---use the relay as a guide----
===STAND NEXT TO THE JEEP, NOT IN FRONT OF IT===
OK, assuming you have the correct relay pulled out, and assuming that the correct terminals were connected with your jumper wire, there are a couple of possibilities. Either the battery is very weak, or the starter has failed. Ask your Dad to bang on the starter a few times with a hammer and try the jumper wire again. Be careful so no one gets hurt!
If banging on the starter enabled the engine to crank over,then you need a new starter.
