Best Answer

Check the neutral safety switch on the shifter. If you place the shifter into neutral or push the shifter harder into the park position, this may change the switch position to allow it to start. There is a recall on the grand Cherokees for this switch.

AnswerCheck the battery, i had the same problem once and it turned out to be one of the cells in my battery had gone bad
