Went to start my vehicle after I moved it a couple of hours earlier and it would not start and the gauges had no power or no check engine light on. It did give mileage, but that was it. I changed the crank shaft position sensor and checked fuses, relays, etc, but no luck. Help!

Hello, first off we need to make sure there is power in the car. Did you try to jump start or charge the battery?

I did not because the Jeep turns over at a very fast rate!

No fuel or voltage power to gauges, but it spins fast.

Okay, thanks. Wiggle the key without cranking and see if the lights on the dash blink in and out. You may have an ignition switch issue.

I did that yesterday but I am going try again when I get home. I can pull the fuse for the instrument cluster and my gauges come on and engine light blinks and then everything goes back off when I start turning engine over.

No, do not change any more parts for the ignition, sensors only relay information to the engine module, they will not cause issue with the dash, if the dash is blipping out there is another issue. You need to start by having the codes read, see if there are SKIM codes for the anti theft, the ignition switch is a possible issue, you need to start with having the codes read. If you are unfamiliar with the anti-theft operation and codes and scanners then your best bet is to have it towed to a shop and diagnose. The fact that you are wanting to change sensors tells me that you do not know how cars operate. I am not trying to be mean, trying to save you time and money. Have the car diagnosed. If you need second opinions or advice we will be here to help. Lou.

I have black keys and not the gray ones that have chips in them, but I am going to double check.
