Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that could be going on depending on what actual symptoms you're having. It's possible that damage was done during the installation of whatever you were installing or the problem may be unrelated. IT's going to require some testing to determine exactly what is wrong.

What specifically is the vehicle doing?

I had 2 new keys cut and programmed with no issue
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The strange thing is I will pull the iod fuses and push them back In. When turn the ignition key I will hear the fuel pump kick on but only hear the starter relay click when I try to start the car
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
The next time I crank the car no sound from the fuel pump
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

If the starter relay is clicking then the most likely cause is the starter itself or a poor connection between the starter solenoid driver wire and it's terminal.

Do you have a 3.7?

3.7 6 cyl
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
4x4
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

The starter relay isn't clicking then. It isn't cranking because it isn't seeing a range sensor input from the trans. The lead plate on top the valve body needs to be replaced.

I will double check but the starter relay is clicking but I don’t hear the fuel pump engage
Jeep Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

The starter relay isn't clicking if you're seeing a trans temp warning.

No.
