Just pilled dashboard (heater core, a/c evap, blend doors) HELP!!!
i have a 2000 grand cherokee wj just pulled dash and hvac unit to change heater core, a/c evap and blend doors. Everything went back the way it should. Reconnected everything. refilled fluids. Went and started truck ran for about 3 or 4 seconds and stalled. Keep on doing same thing everytime, starts and stops.. I have checked all connections and they seem fine. I am looking to see if anyone has had this problem or can you point me right direction? Any help is appreciated..

You have a skim problem. Unit does not recongnise the keys chip and stops motor after 3 seconds. Check connectors around steering column and ignition switch first to make sure the chip reader is connected.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
you da man
I went and had something to eat, had a beer and took a step back. Thanks for the tip. I went back and looked at sreering colum and low and behold, I had a connector that was loose, pushed all the way in. Guess what it starts now. Thanks again man..... Heat works now and will mess with AC when weather gets warmer. Did it all in about 8 hrs, saved alot of money... maybe I will get another 250,000 miles out of it...

Fun fact: If you start it too many times with the 'wrong key', the SKIM will lock and need to be unlocked by the dealer.

Kudos to you ..... That is one DIY that I have avoided so far..... Sounds like it was not to bad..... So far I have done all the temporary repairs to the blend doors and the condensers and heater core have not leaked yet..... But I imagine that will not last forever. Thx again
