Engine is cold it will start up and run three seconds and shut off and no gauges are working in my dash. There is a key lighted up with a circle around it and a line down through it in the right hand corner. I thought it was security so I took off negative battery cable to reset computer and did the lock unlock thing with the key in driver's door where that is the only door with a key hole, but still the same thing. Could it be that my chip in my key is bad or what do you think my problem could be? Thank you. Starts up runs three seconds and shuts down every time even when engine is cold.
Do you

Hello,

It sounds like you have an alarm module that has gone bad. You might need to take it to the dealer so they can plug their machine up to see why the security is not working.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

It is strange it did that all day Saturday and I went out sunday morning it started right up and ran til I shut it off and then it started to do the same thing-start up and shut off after three seconds-so it wouldn't be security would it if it started and stays running til I shut it off do you think it could be the key or something else-I can take the key out of the ignition in any position but they told me that wouldn't matter

When I first get in to start my jeep and turn key on no gauges work at all and there is a light on in the right hand corner with a key in it with a line through it that wouldn't have anything to do with fuel would it-thanks for the help I appreciate it just trying to get this thing figured out
