Question about 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee won't start. When you turn the key starter is silent, no clicking, nothing, but all of the lights, radio, power seats, windows etc. work fine. The Transmission over temp message flashes quickly when you turn the key to off, but the temp on the guage never comes close to being high. The battery is fine and I've checked all of the connections. This has happened three times now and I just leave it for a few hours and it starts right up. Anyone know what this could be?
What is the current status? I purchased a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee from CarMax in December, 2009. The first time it wouldn't start was the beginning of March. The dealership could not duplicate the issue. Happened again a month later, they said it was the wireless remote module and that was replaced. Couple months later, happened again. They said it was the key module. That was replaced. Friday night, happened again. I'm waiting for a tow truck Monday morning. Does anyone know the real underlying issue and the resolution?

So I was curious has anyone figured out a true solution to this problem? I have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it is not starting as of yesterday! I am having the exact symptoms as these posts and I'm curious if anyone has fixed it completely. I have read starter, ignition switch, and module works temporarily and something about the anti-theft system. What is it?

I just had the same problem with my Jeep GC, had the shift module replaced and then two weeks later the same thing happened and they just replaced the starter

I'm having the exact same problem on our 07 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Same as all of you been to the garage nothing fixed it. I called Chrysler about the problem and they said they haven't heard anything about it. So Please start calling them and if they hear from all of us maybe they will do something.

Change the Starter Relay!!!
They go bad and can cause intermittant problems
In a pinch if the part numbers match on the A/C Clutch relay, swap them and if the car starts then just replace the relay.
About $18.00 at NAPA
Buy a SPARE!!!

Lindsay, I've had exactly the same problem with my 2007 Grand Cherokee. Have you had any luck solving the problem yet? thanks,

This is a very common problem on these jeeps, the problem is corrosion buildup on the small wire at the starter(called the S wire). 99% of the time wiggling this wire will get you up and running, the correct repair would be a new wire connector soldered in with a dab of dielectric grease. Unfortunately this is a little difficult to reach and may take a skilled hand. Check your starter for corrosion too, it might be time to replace both while you're in there.

This might sound crazy but if you open and close the hood twice not really slammin but hard enough to close something reset and the car started was stuck at gas station and some guy pumping next to me told me to do that so if anybody that stuck with this problem give it a try cant hurt worked for me

I have been dealing with this problem for over a year now. 2 new starters , battery, and some ingnition modular . Cant count how many tow jobs we needed.Loss of work , being stranded. I am a single mom of two, and I have had the car back at least 8 times and they tell me I don't know what to tell you it started. Here the funny thing they wont buy it back because they know it will be their liability then. Does anyone know of the lemon law or any other act that would help me?? PLEASE LET ME KNOW email@example.com

I have encountered this issue on the 07 dodge ram as well. Disconnecting/reconnecting the battery for a minute or so corrected the no start condition. Upon researching the problem, I have come to find out it lies within the WCM ( wireless control module ). The ignition key will sometimes send a static charge through to this module and cause it to go in " sleep " mode. Chrysler has an updated module to correct this issue. The replacement updated module for this Ram was in the 200 dollar range I believe. It may not be the correction for the Jeeps as I have never encountered this problem with one. However, it sounds exactly like the same problem and the year matches most vehicles. Possibly a bad batch of modules for that particular year range?

My man I know your pain... I have the exact same problem happening to me now... same make, year and model... I called a mechanic buddy of mine and he said I might have a "flat point" on my starter and if so this might happen intermittently... he suggested a replacement of the starter... But I think the other suggestion is also quite valid so I going to have my friend do both...
