Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

99 Jeep Grand cherokee Laredo

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Grand Cherokee yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes I am trying to fix it. It just won't start. I have gone through the ignition switch (replaced) , starter relay (replaced) and the TCM module (Replaced-fuse block in engine compartment). I was looking at changing the lock cylinder, but took a switch (right next to lock cylinder).

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

268,000

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Car was starting normally but just quite.
