'06 Grand Cherokee Limited wont start
im new to jeep garage and i just bought a used '06 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.7L Hemi.
it has 60, 000miles. Today the panic alarms were going off and i couldnt get them to stop so i started the engine and shut it off, hoping maybe that would stop the panic alarm..? well now my jeep wont turn over. if i put the key to Accessory or On, the dashboard lights, music, a/c and everything come on just like they should, but if i try to start it the lights flash and go off and there is a loud click. tried charging and jumping the battery, but if Accessory/On have power wouldn't that mean the battery is just fine? could this be a starter issue or a result of some security system failure. im so confused.

Re: '06 Grand Cherokee Limited wont start
sounds like security system failure to me. Or your key may be dead.

Try to disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for about 30 seconds and then try.

Put a new battery in your key and hit unlock, lock, unlock... Try to start.
Sounds like your alarm is still engaged...

if you replace the fob battery, you have to remove the jeeps negative terminal for like 5 minutes to reset the alarm.
