    On my 95 Grand Cherokee limited edition i have a problem. When i hook my battery the head lights come on automatically and the engine will not even click. It is almost like the security system is on. Any thoughts would be most helpful. thanks for the help Eric

    Welcome to the site! I presume the light switch is turned Off, and the battery is in good charge/condition?

    I would start with making sure all the battery connections are clean. Check the ground cable and make sure it has a clean, and tight connection to the vehicle

    Then hit the key and nothing. I have tried the lock on the lift gate too shut down the security system and nothing.

    5" lift, 4.11 gears, tru-trac limited-slips, winch, bumbers... you know the rest.
    If it the oem security system try locking and unlocking the passenger door with the key while all the other doors are shut. If it's an after market system I would check with the company that made it.
